A. Ademar

I have always tried to run, but have also always stopped due to shin splints before a week is over. I haven't followed the Pose Method for long now, but I must say that I have not had the shin splints so far. For me, this fact alone is enough to adopt this method.

V. Dominek

The course is very well designed and produced. There are routines for warm-ups, cool downs with details of the exercises, well explained, and other videos with no instructions, which you can follow in real time while doing the exercises.
“About one year ago, I could not run 50 yards without extreme IT Band Syndrome pain. I spent 30 minutes with Dr. Romanov and could run as far and as much as I wanted pain free. Today, I am the USA Paratriathlon National Champion.”
David Kyle, Associate Director of Health and Physical Education, University of Alabama
