Online running form analysis
Upload your videos and improve your running form
Many runners have accepted a popular myth about form. This myth says that each individual runs in a manner that is just right for his or her unique anatomy.
As a result, most runners spend their training time practicing bad form. This makes them run slower and more likely to get injured.
With the Movaia online running form analysis you will get insight into your individual form and improvement areas. With our targeted running technique exercises you will become a stronger runner.
You will improve fastest by focusing on just a few running form goals at a time.
That is why we have 3 levels. Runners move to a new level after reaching goals of their current level.
This is the most reliable way for you to run faster and longer with great form – and with a much reduced risk of injury.
If we see anything sub-optimal in the running form analysis of your video, we give you straightforward drills and videos to help you develop perfect form.
Feel like a new runner in just weeks, with more stamina and more power in your strides.
Foot Angle is simply the angle the foot makes with the ground at the instant when it first makes ground contact. Your foot angle determines braking force, ground-contact time (duration of stance), running velocity, ground impact forces, and the risk of certain injuries.
The angle of your leg at ground contact is also known as “Strike Angle” or “Shank Angle at Touch down”. It describes the angle between the shank and a line drawn perpendicular to the ground at the point of impact between the foot and ground. It is a critical element of form because it determines the amount of “sweep”. “Sweep” is the movement from maximum forward extension of the foot to the strike angle at touch down.
Step rate is the number of steps taken during each minute of running. It determines how fast you can run. Step rate also has a big effect on the angle of your foot when it hits the ground (foot angle).
Step rate varies with intensity. Very high step rates tend to be ideal for sprinting, slower step rates are common for ultra-distance running. Typical distance running step rates tend to fall between 170 and 200 steps per minute.
A too-slow step rate can decrease your running velocity and increases the likelihood that you will be a pronounced heel-striker. An overly fast step rate can actually decrease your step length and thus slow you down as well.
Posture is simply the alignment of your head, neck, thorax, and hips with respect to each other. Good posture reduces fatigue and helps to make you a more economical runner.
Lean determines whether propulsive forces will primarily be directed up and forward, straight up, or up and backward. An overly forward lean decreases the amount of critical vertical propulsive force and actually shortens step length.
A too-small or negative lean means that your body is too straight or tilted backward and thus that not enough forward propulsive force is being created.
The angle at which you bend your arms at your elbows impacts your running performance significantly. Arms that are not adequately flexed at the elbows tend to slow cadence, while arms that are properly flexed at the elbows reinforce high cadence.
We also check for excessive arm forward or backward-movement.

Quite an eye opener to see the photos with the angles added. I like the steps to improve. Easy and clear to understand
I did two running form analyses before and the results were very similar – but I paid a lot more…
Great to get faster than ever at the age of 49 – after more than 15 years of training! Running ist fun again, without the pain. I love that it feels like floating. I’m also keen on the possibility to check my running form whenever I want to – never stop improving!
