Your pain free - step by step guide to making the switch to minimalist footwear.

Are you thinking of switching to minimalist footwear? Have you already tried and failed because it got too painful?

Switching to minimalist footwear and spending more time barefoot offers a huge range of health and wellbeing benefits, from improved balance to better running mechanics and more stable ankles, knees and hips!

That doesn’t mean it’s a simple switch to make. If you’re like most of the people I work with, then you’ve spent years, probably decades in “normal shoes”. All those years in stiff, thick, pointy and heeled footwear have changed your natural biomechanics. Undoing all of that damage takes some work!

I bet you already know you should be doing some mobility and foot strengthening exercises but I bet you’re also a bit overwhelmed by all the contradicting advice out there! That’s exactly why this course was created :-). I tell you exactly what you need to do each week and your results speak for themselves!

Reduce your injury Risk
Injury happens when we move through a range of motion that we’ve not trained for. An unexpected load in an unexplored pose is a recipe for disaster. That’s why I'll be teaching you how to move through these larger ranges of motion. Doing so doesn’t mean you’ll never get injured but it does greatly reduce the risk, and it’s fun!

Improve your Stability
Your feet are your foundation and just like you wouldn’t want a house built on a poor foundation, you don’t want that for your body either! We’ll take a deep dive into how you can get #feetlikehands, providing a strong and reliable base for your movement practice.

Increase Foot Mobility
Conventional shoes & sneakers hold your feet to a rigid shape and prevent them from moving. With 33 joints in each foot its vital that you mobilize the feet if you want to avoid pain when moving away from rigid footwear.

Move Freely & Confidently
The feedback you get from your feet when you only have a minimal layer of protection between you and mother nature is incredible. The 200,000 nerve endings in each foot soak up information about the type of surface you are moving across and feed that information back to the brain. This helps us become more aware of body position & react more quickly to changes. No more tripping over clunky shoes.

Get Strong & Resilient Feet
Do you know one of the biggest differences between world class runners & the rest of us? Big toe strength! The big toe takes 40-60% of the load when moving through a gait cycle so foot strength & big toe position are crucial to moving efficiently. If you want to run faster, jump higher & walk effortlessly then building foot strength is essential! Not only that but strong feet will recover faster.

FAQs
I love the program but I don’t have any equipment
The equipment used in the course is minimal, substitute options are included and there's even a handy guide to affordable equipment included as an accompanying article.
I’ve been with shoes for 20+ years, is a 6 week course really enough?
No problem! We encourage everyone to transition to minimalist footwear at their own pace. This course will give you everything you need but you may need to revisit it multiple times to undo all of the damage caused by years in non functional footwear.
I already have a full workout routine, how do I fit this in?
Even though this program is 7 days a week, it only needs 5 - 20 minutes a day. You can fit it in with a warm up routine or add it wherever you have space in your day.
I’m super excited to start this but i'm afraid of making the leap
You can get in touch with me before you start. I’d be more than happy to talk you through any concerns you have before getting started.
I want to switch to minimalist shoes but have no idea which to choose
I’ve got you covered. There is a full article detailing all of the brands we recommend and explaining which ones will suit your needs.
I have flat feet - can I still take this course?
Yes you can and this course will help you strengthen your feet and build your arches. You may need to complete the course over a longer timeframe to ensure you don’t place too much stress on the feet.
