Sports Analysis

If you can measure it, you can improve it. Complete a Run Clinic to assess your running style, cadence, biomechanics and any injuries or imbalances. Our digital analysis software calculates body alignment, stride quality, technique, and motion range. The data and observations collated during the session are the foundation of our recommendations to improve posture, practice, and your overall running technique and performance.

Improve your swing and reduce the risk of injury with a Golf Biomechanical Screening, a consultation where our physiotherapist will evaluate your swing and the key components comprising; body position and imbalances, muscular mobility and flexibility, timing, force transfer, speed of swing and strength to maintain this level of activity over an extended period.

Sports Nutrition

To gain a deeper insight into how your body functions and the daily calorie intake that it requires to sustain your training program we need to understand your metabolism. Fat loss and muscle building is only achievable when you can get your body to use your calorie intake as fuel. The foundation of your diet to achieve your weight goals is more effective when you balance energy macros across the timing of your meals, type of activities and calorie intake over the day and week. At UPANDRUNNING, measuring your metabolism is our preferred test and guide to creating a bespoke, sports nutrition plan.
