Running Form Analysis

Running form analysis, also called a gait analysis, is designed to help you make changes to your running form that will improve your running efficiency, increase your speed, and reduce your rate of injury. After knowing where your weaknesses are, you can then begin to build stronger running mechanics to improve your form.

Why Gait Analysis?

As a long time runner, I’ve experienced firsthand the importance of proper running form. As a young runner, my form was less than desirable, and it was in my very best interest to work on my running form so I could run more miles without getting injured so often.

TrainwithMarc helps runners address and fix running form flaws using gait (running form) analysis technology.

With proper running technique, you’ll be able to train at a higher level while reducing your risk of injury. You’ll be given exercises to perform to improve your form. When you know where your running flaws are, you can work to improve them and greatly reduce your injury rate.

In-Person Analysis

If you’d like to do an in-person session, Marc will film you while you run at various angles. This will happen at Cherry Hill East HS after arranging a time and date together. After filming you, Marc will then write a report detailing the areas in which you need to focus on the most. He will give you exercises to perform and key areas for you to focus your attention on.

Virtual Gait Analysis

Have someone film you running.  You’ll need 3 videos – one of you running directly toward the camera, one running past the camera (side view) and one running directly away from the camera.

*Each of these videos should be run at mile race pace*

Upload the 3 videos to Google Drive and share the folder with TrainwithMarc.

    Where are you located? I do not have video equipment or computer. Just phone. I am very interested in gait analysis. Also what do you charge?


  2. I’m in Cherry Hill and charge $65 for a full, comprehensive write up (with photos and corrections) on how to improve your form. If you are interested, email me and we can set up a time to film.
