What is Good Form?

We spend our whole lives on the move: running, walking, skipping, name it! While these concepts are familiar and innate to us, it can come as a surprise that we could actually be moving BETTER.

Our basic philosophy encourages one very simple mantra: move light and easy. Instead of a complex bio-mechanical analysis (#Science), Good Form focuses on the simple, essential steps that allow for efficient and healthy running and walking.

Along with effective stretching and strengthening techniques, Good Form can benefit all ranges of runners and walkers. With simplicity as a focal point, Good Form has positively reached thousands of runners and walkers since 2006.

Good Form Running (GFR)

Run healthier and faster.

GFR was created after years of teaching clinics, studying running philosophies, and personal meetings with speedy/intelligent runners. Instead of a complex biomechanical analysis, GFR focuses on three simple, essential steps. Free GFR classes are offered to the public on a weekly basis.

Good Form Walking (GFW)

Walk easier and lighter.

Good Form Walking (GFW) is method to help walkers of all ages and abilities move more efficiently and healthier. Learning the three simple components of GFW can help people to walk without injury, with a well-balanced stride and with renewed vigor. GFW instruction has helped thousands of people walk better, farther, and more frequently, without pain!

Stretch, Strength, & Roll (SSR)

Focus on flexibility and muscle balance.

In this introductory class, we discuss common muscle imbalances, practice dynamic and static stretches, and demonstrate strengthening exercises. The key topic of this class is focusing in on the importance of myofacial release and how to do it effectively.

Good Form is Transforming Lives

Good running form is the single most important thing I've learned in 30 years at Playmakers. I question why it took us so long to learn it.

Curt Munson

After ten years of not running because of injuries, I've been able to run since incorporating GFR, feeling great and avoiding injuries.

John Benedict

My whole life I've experienced pain while running. GFR got me off running on my heels and onto my midfoot. This not only improved my efficiency and speed, but it's also made me a healthier runner for life.

Dr. Jeffrey R. Kovan, DO

Good Form Running has been very helpful for me. I started out not being able to run very far at all and now am able to run a total of 6 miles!

Kristen Fell

Coming from a cycling paradigm, the last thing I wanted to do was run. It wasn't enjoyable and it was a horrible shock to my quads. Since learning good form, running has become easier and more fluid for my body.

Mike Homan

Starting the program, I could run (slowly jog) about ½ a mile, then had to walk. Now I’m running 5 miles without stopping. The instruction has also kept me injury free, something that hasn’t happened for me in several years.
