Client success stories
I was referred to Runmotion by my tri coach in order to improve my (self taught) front crawl technique. After an initial video session and detailed analysis of my stroke I joined three more sessions that were focussed on technical excercises. By mixing up the exercises and making them harder and harder each time the classes were fun and challenging at the same time. As a result of these classes my technique has improved tremendously and I have become a much more comfortable and faster swimmer
I found Runmotion worked extremely well in helping me to develop strength and get back into running after having 4 months off. I had suffered from the early stages of a stress fracture in my tibia and found Runmotion was a great way of being able to test running again and how my leg reacted to it. It helped as it was about 50% body weight hitting the ground each step, meaning less pressure was put on my leg. I started off with one session and then did 2 sessions a week. I would recommend more than one session as the first time I spent that getting used to the motion. Each session Jon put the resistance up and after a few I found my legs becoming stronger. Not only did it help my strength but also running technique.
A few days ago, I went on my first run in 4 months and felt so much stronger. I can’t recommend Jon enough!! Thank you again

I had my first experience of an underwater treadmill at Runmotion under the guidance of Jon Yates. I wish that I had discovered his facility a few months ago as I am sure that the combination of off loading combined with resistance would have greatly assisted recovery from an Achilles issue.
Running is different, interestingly really encouraging use of the core. Jon’s knowledgeable advice is reassuring. A quick look at my swimming technique revealed various issues to work on! Really nice clean upmarket facility with the personal attention of the owner. A must for all athletes looking to improve swimming technique or rehab with lower limb issues.
Also an alternative to other hydrotherapy setups as it will allow good use of degenerative joints or post surgery for replacement ankles, knees and hips.
Having Multiple Sclerosis means that I have frequent hip pain and weak gait stability. Since using Runmotion's under water treadmill both have greatly improved. I feel like my joints have been 'WD40'd' and my strength is so much better. It is so very, very noticeable for someone with my condition. Thank you so much, it really is a brilliant system that I truly feel will help my recovery no end.
