Tom is ‘The Running Man’. A running coach with 20 Marathons and 3 Ultras under his belt Tom knows a bit about running. Mainly based at Nottingham University where he heads up the Advanced Running Group. Tom works with runners of all abilities, coaching safe running and helping clients to build resilience to injuries and develop that all important speed! He is also experienced in helping runners with disabilities. In 2018 he ran the London Marathon as a guide for a visually impaired athlete.
He is available at Lace Market Clinic on Saturday mornings to provide Slow Motion Video Gait Analysis and crucially technical and strength training to help you implement the modifications to your technique. We recommend gait analysis is taken in blocks of 4 sessions because getting results is dependent on doing the right stuff in training to make the changes you desire. Put simply it’s easy to tell you what to do differently but it is much more difficult to actually implement the change and know you’re doing it right. He also offers a 1-1 running coach service but there’s a long waiting list for this service as many of his clients have been with him for years… and there’s only so much running even Tom can do in 1 week!
‘Wonderful Tom’ – This is what Agata said about Tom after completing the London Marathon together:
