About the Author

Shane Benzie is a running technique coach and movement specialist. He has traveled extensively to work with, live with and study a wide range of athletes in different--sometimes extreme--environments.

Shane is at the forefront of sport movement research which has seen him drastically re-evaluate how and why we run and led to exciting findings on the role of the fascia system in creating natural elasticity in our species. His coaching is not therefore based on a course he has been on or textbooks that he has read nor is it skewed by the unnatural comfort of a safe and controlled environment. Instead, his work has been conducted in the field with over 2,500 runners. He has collaborated with an impressive list of successful athletes including the Team GB 24 Hour running team.


"Shane's approach to running movement really works. Shane helped me prepare for my fourth Marathon des Sables. I am convinced that the insight from these sessions was instrumental in me being able to run as well as I did and secure my second win in a highly competitive race." --Elisabet Barnes (Ultra Endurance Runner)

"Shane has transformed the way I run. I'm now faster and can run for longer without tiring or hurting. But perhaps more importantly I now think about my body and what it's doing..." --Damian Hall (Ultra Marathon Runner & Journalist)
