Running Dynamics Optimization® (RDO)

Have you ever wondered how elite athletes do what they do—often with what appears to be minimal effort; or, how professional musicians play so brilliantly? The reason is clearly their innate talents, together with years of practice, training and hard work, but it is also how they synergize and optimize these talents and skills with their technique, body positioning and movement, utilizing available sources of energy, their mind (ability to focus, deal with pressure, discomfort—even pain, etc), and their emotions to perform—in whatever environment they happen to be in—on the day. 


Ken's Running Dynamics Optimization® program focuses on optimizing this dynamic specifically for you, to tap your true potential in a highly customized way, based on your needs and goals.  RDO is a data-based instructional program that assists and guides you to optimize your running experience. 


Already follow a coaching program? No problem! RDO complements other training/coaching programs—as an additive process that seeks to optimize multiple inputs and resources for runners to improve their performance and achievements.  RDO focuses on much more than just running technique, or a running training program.  RDO’s goal is to work with multiple variables—physical and non-physical—impacting how and why a runner runs, with the goal of removing barriers and optimizing the collective impact of all relevant variables.

Process Overview: Running Dynamics Optimization® (RDO)

RDO consists of a 12-step process. Clients will begin by completing a qualitative assessment (utilizing multiple techniques), then the instructor will capture baseline quantitative running metrics. After analysis, the instructor will evaluate and identify a customized improvement plan and process for the client. This will include a new “go-to” toolkit for enhanced running success.
