Running Video Analysis
Over striding, heel striking, over-pronation. There are lots of little issues that can cause big issues for your running. Whether you want to improve your times, or avoid those frustrating injuries; we’re here to help. Our freshly laid track makes for the perfect location for a running video analysis.
60 Minute Session
During your 60 minute running video analysis, we will video you running on the track from various angles. We review the footage and then give you tips, techniques, and exercises that will help you improve your running speed and efficiency. This will not only improve general performance, but can also help to prevent injury. Good running technique can allow you to train more, with faster recovery while remaining injury free. A run video analysis can be a great start to race preparation, or a good platform for building up those all important miles.
Swim Video Analysis
From the all important catch to the often cut short exit phase, there’s a lot more to the average swim stroke than most people think. The trouble with swimming is, it’s really hard to know what exactly you’re doing underwater, let alone if you’re doing it ‘right’. That’s where we come in. With an expert team and three Olympic sized swimming pools, the CLS Swim Video Analysis will get your swimming ship shape in no time.
60 Minute Session
In your swim analysis session, we will video your swimming from three different angles. After reviewing the footage we will be able to advise you on technique adjustments to help you swim smarter and faster. Good swimming technique can not only make you swim faster and avoid injuries, but can also make your swimming much more efficient and ‘effortless’. This can be vital, especially for the triathletes among you, as an easy swim can set you up for a great day on the bike and run!
Many cyclists and triathletes are riding bikes that are not the right size for them. Combined with an incorrect saddle height, this can create saddle sores, back pain or other injuries while also causing poor pedalling efficiency. That’s where we come in.
There are several bike fit options on offer at Club La Santa. You can choose from a Static, Dynamic, or Pedal Analysis bike fit, to ensure you get the best option to suit your cycling needs. We also offer an All- Inclusive Performance Package for those who want to make sure they have all their bases covered. The All-Inclusive Performance Package includes all aspects of Static Bike Fit, Dynamic Bike Fit and Pedal Analysis. A comprehensive report, summarising all the components of the session is then included. We will give recommendations for flexibility, mobility and strength improvements too!
