Work one on one with Trent Corey. Trent has his Doctorate of Physical Therapy, BSE in Biomedical Engineering and has been working in this field since 2006. He recently won the Freedom 5K race at 16:36 and is a 2:37 marathoner. Trent strongly believes simple changes to a runners form can have dramatic improvements: “People often run with the breaks on. They land ahead of themselves, rather than underneath their body, increasing friction and impact through their stride – ultimately slowing them down.” He says that with simple adjustments, runners can avoid injury, run more effectively and be successful at reaching individual goals. He is knowledgeable, passionate and highly experienced!
