Training camps & seminars for teams & coaches
Romanov Academy of Sports Science is dedicated to the well-being and success of college athletes. Our training seminars are designed to create a high level of competency among team coaches and support teams, and promote skill and strength development among college athletes to help ensure lifelong health and athletic success.
This 2-day course is designed for Physical Therapists and Physical Therapist Assistants to learn how to use video analysis and running technique assessment tools to analyze running gait, movement patterns and identify deviations from the standard established by the Pose Method framework.
Participants will also learn how to use specific corrective technique drills and strength exercises to reduce eccentric knee loading, to improve pain and disability associated with the chronic exertional compartment syndrome. Related scientific research and clinical studies will be presented.
“Implementing pose allowed me to add more conditioning and yet solve my chronic overuse injuries. To me, pose was a new beginning, two injury free final years in the NCAA, and 5 school records.”
– Shannon Marchant,
NCAA Division 1
While growing up, I was always known as “the fast kid” in my class. I started running track at an early age and found success immediately. While continuing to run track as I grew older, I continued to compete and win but I was never able to reach that next level.
I got to high school and ran for the next 3 years under under sub par coaching staffs who wouldn’t teach me much other than “go run fast.” Then, like a ray of sunshine on a cloudy day, as I was going into my senior year I was blessed with a coaching staff who actually studied running and knew a few things about it. At the beginning of the season of my senior year, I started practicing Pose. I became more familiar with the style and watched my times drop as I was progressing through the season. I started to feel like I was really beginning to separate myself from my competition like I had finally reached that next level.
In high school, I was never able to reach my true potential until I was able to learn how to run efficiently, Pose gave me that. As I became more familiar with the style, I felt my self running smoother every day at practice, using all of my energy efficiently and utilizing what the earth was giving me; gravity. I learned how to pull and fall and by the end of the season I could break things down into one simple command: stay in Pose. It was the difference between being an all-state sprinter my Junior year in high school, and a state champion sprinter my Senior year.

Coach Education & Support Team Instruction
The Pose Method® is a system with a unique focus on technique. Technique is the cornerstone of any athletic activity, any movement. Improving technique will make a dramatic difference in health and performance of your athletes and will allow you to take their training to the next level.
The Pose Method® Course teaches participants to:
- Define the core concepts of the Pose Method program.
- Identify the primary points of performance of the foundational movements.
- Perform the foundational movements safely and identify when they have committed a form error.
- Perform video analysis and identify when they have committed a form error.
- Identify correct movement when training others.
- Identify unsound movement and apply appropriate correction toward improved movement.
- Apply the Pose Method safely and effectively while gaining the experience necessary to develop competency in training others using Pose Method techniques.
