Pose Method® Specialist Certification Course | Level 1


This 2-day seminar is designed to teach athletes, runners as well as sports and health professionals the biomechanically correct running technique, and how to  use video analysis and running technique assessment tools to analyze running gait and identify errors in movement that produce inefficient technique and lead to overuse injuries.

During this immersive educational seminar participants will learn how to increase speed and endurance, how to prevent running related injuries and remain injury free.

Everyone is welcome to participate! Whether it’s for your own benefit or to help others.

The Pose Method of running has not only eliminated my injuries, it has been an integral part of continued improvement in my chosen sport. In fact at fifty-two years of age I’m still improving. A bonus of the Pose Method for me has been significant health and strength improvement.

“I attended the Pose Method Course with Dr. Romanov in Miami and it was a phenomenal experience. I honestly don’t know how any human being could have covered as much information and simplified in a way that made it all digestible. It is a simple concept but with many nuances that make it difficult to explain and they did a great job.

The whole thing was fantastic. I would recommend to anyone that wants to learn more about running from the weekend runner to the physical therapist.

I have been working with Florida Guardsmen. So far this year alone we introduced pose to 2x wellness camps (87 Soldiers failing their fitness test), 50 executive leaders (senior army leaders) at an Army Combat Fitness Test (ACFT) workshop, and 6 Soldiers during an Occupational Physical Assessment Test (OPAT) workshop.  They love it!
