Sometimes it hurts under your kneecap and other times around your knee. Maybe you cannot recall an injury or specific event that led to your discomfort.
You’ve iced it, stretched it, heated it, rubbed it and taken more Aleve or Advil than you’d like to admit.

You’re getting it all in this book at a fraction of what a personal consultation with me would cost.
For over 23 million people who want to run and can’t because of knee pain, there’s not a single book available to help them.

Other programs don’t answer this question, preferring to squeeze everyone into a one-size-fits-all approach. But without testing and measuring your unique capabilities, how do you know the safe and appropriate level to… Read more…
