Your experts in all things movement and mechanics

Hi I'm Phil. I thought no pain no gain was the only way to be your best as an athlete...

I was athletic and competitive from a young age.  Ice hockey, rugby,bouldering, running.  I pushed my body to it’s limits.

When I found chi running it opened my eyes to a different way. I was able to get the best out of my body without breaking it down.

I have always been a professional coach, so it made sense to qualify as a chi running instructor. Adding Oxygen Advantage sports breathing then studying the mechanics of gait from the feet up with world leading experts.

I will help you find your natural running ability. I will show you how to use the power in your feet to free your whole body.


Hi, I'm Julie. 7 years ago I struggled to run a half marathon on flat roads....

Now I lregularly run 20 miles in the hills at the weekend.  

I spent years working with world leading teachers. Turning what I thought I knew about fitness, health, movement upside down & on it’s head.

I learnt how to work with my body – not against it.  Unlocking the power that was locked up inside.

Feeling that change – I knew I could do more. Without breaking my body.

I can help you do the same. And you won’t need to take years!


"If you are looking at improving your running technique and remaining injury free, this is a great investment.

I no longer heel strike, my form is more consistent and I have learned to consciously relax my body whilst running. 
It’s not a magic formula but if you are willing to take on board new ideas and put in the work, I believe you too could have outstanding results.”

Les, Glossop

Outdoor full body video gait analysis

Video analysis is a powerful tool so you can quickly see where you are strong and what has been holding you back. 

You don’t run on treadmills for your adventures so we don’t analyse you on one.   It’s not about judging you, seeing how you run today just helps to find the quick wins we can help you with. So you feel the benefit as quick as possible.

Steve was ready to burn his trainers and give up!

“Everything hurt, feet, ankles, back, knee… I was ready to burn my running shoes and give up. But luckily I found this program with Phil and Julie. I am now running 15 miles a week – pain free, injury free and I am working towards a half marathon. That did not seem possible before”  

Steve, Tottington

Regular niggles or injuries holding you back?

There is nothing worse than forced time off or running with pain.

Ignoring it is definitely not the best solution. Your body is telling you there is a problem.  Relying on hands on treatments is not edaling with the root cause.

The great news is you are the best person to fix it. You just need to know how.  We can help you:
