Unlock your potential to run naturally.

Is there a bridge from the injury-ridden world of the modern runner to the promised land that barefoot running and Born to Run have led us to believe exists? Can we live the running life free from injury? Is there an approach designed to unlock all the athletic potential that may be hidden within? Can we run faster, more efficiently and for longer periods of time?


In a direct answer to the needs of the modern runner, Dr. Kelly Starrett, author of the bestselling hit, Becoming a Supple Leopard: The Ultimate Guide to Resolving Pain, Preventing Injury and Optimizing Athletic Performance, has focused his revolutionary mobility and movement philosophy on the injury-swamped world of the runner.

Despite the promises of the growing minimalist shoe industry and a rush of new ideas on how to transform running form, more than 3 out of 4 runners continue to suffer at least one injury a year. Although we may indeed be Born to Run, life in the modern world has trashed and undercut the dedicated runner wishing to transform his or her running form. The harsh effects of too much sitting and too much time wearing the wrong shoes has left us shackled to lower back problems, chronic knee injuries and debilitating foot pain.

In Dr. Starrett's new book, Ready to Run, you will be taught the essential standards for preparing your body for a lifetime of top-performance running. You won't only be ready to run in a minimalist shoe you'll be prepared to run in any shoe.
