Your personal running form analysis powered by AI
Become faster and more injury resistant

Many runners have accepted a popular myth about running 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 running form and improvement areas. With our targeted running technique exercises you will become a stronger runner.

Improve fast with laser focus

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.

Feel like a new runner

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 running form.

Feel like a new runner in just weeks, with more stamina and more power in your strides.

Are you striking with your heel, mid foot or fore foot?
+

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
+

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.

Your cadence (stride rate)
+

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.

Your posture
+

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.

The lean of your body
+

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.

Your arm position
+

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.

How it works
It starts with a video of your run

Shoot the video yourself or ask a friend. Not sure how? Here are some easy instructions or watch us record a video here, so you get the most out of your running form analysis.

Get your running form analysis

Receive your running form analysis with clear feedback. ‘Seeing is believing’ so we make sure to include pictures of your running form at critical phases of the gait cycle and illustrations of good form. This way you can visualize your individual running technique and how to achieve proper running form.

Still in beta but wow, what a great service. Easy to upload videos and I got a comprehensive 40 poage report back in a few hours with great pointers and a full training program to address my posture issues. Fantastic!

Simply outstanding! Technique is everything in running. The process was simple and I now have a baseline of deep insights into my technique and drills to incorporate into my work outs. I have a lot to improve and this is a great tool to help continuously improve. I can’t wait to do it again in a month to check my progress.

This service is amazing - I feel so lucky to have found it. Not only did they identify what I need to work on with my running form, but they provided exercises for me to do to help fix my issues, as well as an easy to follow monthly plan by day to work towards better form. I’m pumped to start!

Absolutely amazing service. Saves the $200-$500 required to get a in-person biomechanics assessment with the same results. Love the action plan, and looking forward to implementing the changes to help me build my speed injury free!
