Welcome to the ACU-Running, presented by Topo Athletic and ACU-Mobilty! While most running programs focus solely on form, ACU-Running looks at the underlying movement patterns that serve as the building blocks of form. Through a series of videos, ACU-Running will teach you how to self-analyze your underlying mobility and stability imbalances, and then show you how to correct these imbalances and apply it back into the running form.
Over the past year, Topo has worked side by side with Running Coach and Movement Specialist, Brad Cox and Dr. Sonia Pasquale, from the ACU-Running Team. Together, we produced the "at-home" version of ACU-Running, their highly-specialized program, typically reserved for private clients and elite athletes. The goal of this program is to empower you, the runner, with a better understanding of how your body works, as well as tools to help improve overall movement and efficiency.
So, you might be wondering why a running shoe company would spend all of this time producing a movement program. The answer is pretty simple: shoes won't fix the way you run, but YOU can. Our job is to provide you with the tools and knowledge to be the best, healthiest version of yourself. This includes, shoes that allow the body to move naturally and efficiently, as well as the latest education to keep you on top of your game.
