What We Offer

Children & Young Adult Running Technique and Speed Development

We look at each individuals biomechanics, considering the sport they are involved in. We then teach the correct technique to develop speed, agility and efficiency in running, using our unique training methodology in a safe and fun environment.

Transform your Running Technique in 6 Weeks Program

Running is a skill and most people have not been taught how to run, hence the large amount of injuries. Our 6 session package is suitable for all levels. It begins with a Biomechanical Analysis to help identify areas that can be improved within your running to reduce the risk of injury or improve your performance (or both). The next five training sessions focus on improving the areas we have identified in the analysis through our unique coaching methodology.

Injury Rehabilitation for Runners

When injury prevents us from running it can affect every aspect of our lives and impact the people around us. Our methodology strives to get you back doing the thing that you love, stronger, better and improving the longevity of your running, in a healthy and happy way, using our movement re-education program. Check out our Movement School.

Coaching and Athlete Development

Our coaching methodology can support you in achieving your full potential whatever level you are at, considering all biopsychosocial aspects. By focusing on the process and developing psychological skills to help cope with performance and life barriers we can support a healthy, happy and confident individual through athlete centred coaching.

What we stand for

Coaching is complex and not simply handing out a training plan.

Our philosophy considers all bio-psycho-social factors treating each athlete as an individual with unique biological and psychological characteristics. Taking time to understand how you learn in order to help steer you to achieve your full potential.

Allowing space for you to develop, always listening and being available to support and offer solutions jointly considered.

An athlete centred approach underpins our core values of integrity, honesty, trust and respect which we aim to develop in each athlete in a safe and friendly environment.

2018 Scottish Ultra Running Champion

"Working with the team at Improve My Running has totally transformed the way I run. I am so much faster, stronger and more efficient than before. Now I finish races running strong and tall and with a smile on my face. My results have steadily improved and this year I won the Highland Fling Ultramarathon. I couldn’t have achieved this without all the help from Matt over the last year..."

Completed six week running programme

"I enlisted Matt's help to achieve my goal of running a sub 3:30 marathon. I'd run 5 marathons already but seemed to be stuck at times around 3:50. Matt's work on my running technique and form, along with his structured approached to strength work and a tailored training schedule have transformed my running and allowed me to achieve my goal. ..."
