We had a great time at the MultiSport World in New York City last weekend! We got to talk triathlon all day long--what could be better?!
Throughout the day we offered "Guided Movement Screens." These screens are an athlete's first step in identifying what is missing from their training and racing plans. So many of the triathletes we talked to had the same stories of ongoing injuries and performance plateaus. We totally understand their confusion at KNOWING they can run faster off the bike, yet always falling short. We hope the movement screens helped them begin to see that with better quality movement, they can get over dispiriting cycles of injury and disappointing performance.
The triathletes we met with walked away with a clearer view of:
*Where they were "leaking" speed
* "Hot spots" ripe for injury
* Targeted strength work they needed to do
The sessions were 15 minutes, and we offered them at a special price of $25 for expo participants. The session included an on-the-spot written report of results.
We are also offering the Guided Movement Screens at Multisport World Boston on March 31. If you are planning to attend, you can sign up in advance for your session. We're pleased to say, all of the triathletes we worked in New York with felt it was well worth their time. Many are planning further follow up. Hope we see you in Boston, or at our Gait Analysis Lab in person!

Kurt is skeptical about this triathlete's choice of running shoes. We gave lots of shoe advice all day!
It was great to spend the day talking triathlon to people who are passionate about the sport!
