Running is recognized as the most powerful activity in improving our health and developing both our brain and body. However, running is an unsuccessful activity for most people. We know how to make running safer, more efficient and enjoyable every time you run.

Running is a fundamental movement skill, therefore running form can only be improved by learning to MOVE WELL.

Running adds an incredible amount of load into our bodies, this load is only healthy if your tissues are prepared to take it. We’ll make sure you understand how to prepare and get FIT TO RUN.

If you want to train with the Master, take advantage of his time in Auckland as Juan is reducing his travel time going forward and will not as readily come to New Zealand… This is a must-attend workshop!

Workshop Goals

This 12-hour workshop is intended to provide a pure experiential immersion into Runity’s approach to running. Your beliefs and your movement skills will be constantly challenged to get the best of you. We will explore amazing movement progressions to meet running requirements from beginners to professionals.

The material covered in this workshop is ideal for ALL of your clients – not just for runners! We, for example, use this material for everyone who comes into our studio as the assessment tools and movement sequencing have been useful in all situations.

Workshop Educator

Juan Nieto Polestar Pilates Training Educator
Juan Nieto

Juan Nieto PT, DO, PMA-CPT has been developing his career as movement therapist and trainer since 2002. Initially he started working intensively as a manual therapist. This experience led him to explore the movement-related sciences as a complement to his treatments.

He became a Polestar® Pilates certified instructor in 2003 when he discovered the true potential of the Pilates method as a rehabilitation technique. From then Juan has been focused on researching and developing therapeutic and performance applications within the Pilates environment.

In 2004, Juan co-founded SLINGS and manages movement studios in Madrid and Barcelona. In 2009 he debuted as Polestar® educator and licensee for Spain. During the last 10 years Juan is a frequent international lecturer specialized in rehabilitation through movement and athletic performance.

In 2016 Juan founded Runity, a new start-up born to revolutionize the way the world runs.

After thousands of hours of experience, research, study and education, Juan has defined his very particular way to address treatments and trainings, based on these three principles:

  • No movement nor learning: no therapy.
  • Rehab and training involves progressive overload and increasing movement variability.
  • Movement development from isolation to whole body integration.

Juan’s background and education summary is impressive:

  • Degree in Physical Therapy
  • Master in Osteopathy
  • PMA Certified Pilates Teacher
  • Polestar Pilates Instructor in Studio, Rehab and Mat
  • Running Technique Coach
  • Massage Therapist
  • Level I Gyrotonic instructor
  • Franklin Method Teacher
  • Kinetic Control Practitioner
  • Anatomy Trains Practitioner
  • FMS & SFMA Practitioner
  • Certified Kinesio Taping Practitioner
