When in doubt, Walk it out!

Don't take walking for granted...
Did you know that the average adult takes 5,000-8,000 steps daily, yet many do not truly walk optimally? If there is exercise we should not take for granted (yet most people do)—it’s how to walk. Performing a Gait Analysis, also known as a Walk Test, does not have to take a long time to assess, but it can offer tremendously valuable feedback for both client and trainer. When a coach has access to this feedback, they are able to implement specific exercises and stretches into a client’s training program. This specificity of training will help the client be absolved of some biomechanical stresses on the feet, which impacts the full body and will help the successful coach stand out amongst other trainers.
