Run better

Strength improves your running, strong muscles ensure stability on any surface.

Strength improves your running

Running puts a major load on the knees, feet and hips making them particularly prone to injury. When we run, the movement starts in the ankle and so it must be strong enough to cope with the load. After all, ankles have to support more than just our bodyweight because even normal walking can increase the load sevenfold. When we stop or change direction suddenly or if we leap into the air – all required in running sports such as football, handball or jogging – we need strong muscles to provide stability and a sure footing.

Kieser Training strengthens these muscles, reduces the risk of injury and improves overall running economy. 

The following machines are particularly effective at training

  • the feet (B3/B4), 
  • the calves (J1) 
  • and the lower back (F3) 

and so are good for increasing the strength required for running.

Healthy feet need more than properly fitting shoes

Kieser Training has recently developed two new machines; global firsts that allow targeted ankle training and give the foot the required stability.

Our foot machines B3 and B4, combined with exercises to strengthen the calf and front shin muscles provide stability and support for the foot. One in four injuries at work and almost one in two leisure injuries are the result of a stumble or fall. Evidence shows that isolating the muscles responsible for ankle stability and then training them reduces the risk of injury. Stronger muscles make it easier to control the foot during its natural rolling from side to side and so reduce the risk of going over on the ankle. Strong lower leg muscles improve your running, reduce the risk of sports injuries, improve your sense of balance and aid recovery after an accident. 

We shall be pleased to prepare a running programme for you – one tailored to your specific needs.
