About Us

Run Fast Academy was formed in 2017. As running is the fundamental of all sports, we aim to help everyone to become a better runner.

We lived by the key pillars of F.A.S.T; which represents FocusAlignmentStrength, and Timing.

These four elements will help you to improve your run.

So in order to run faster, longer, avoid injuries & reduce impact on your body – you need to improve on your techniques.

In Run Fast Academy, we provide technique analysis, max heart rate test, running technique classes, resistance training, and if you are a too tied up for physical classes, we are also able to assist to analyze your workout thru virtual coaching.

SamI started running 6 years ago and previously, I used to have a lot of injuries after most races such as Iliotibial band syndrome, Plantar fasciitis & Shin splints.

It takes me about 3 months to recover from every single injury and the more PB I hit, the more injuries I will get.

That’s when I realized I cannot continue to be like this.

Hence, I did a lot of research and reading.

I discovered Pose Method of running and I was fascinated by the theory behind this method.

I was then very determined to learn more about it.

When I found out that they will be conducting a Pose Method training classes in Taiwan, I decided to fly over to learn about it from the founder himself, Dr Nicholas Romanov.

After going through the intensive training and constant practice on the method, I was able to run faster with lesser and even most of the time with zero injuries (depending on the intensity of the race).

I was then inspired to share this knowledge with the rest of the runners and I go certified as the official Pose Method running specialist on April 2016.

Since then, I have conducted more than 10 of running clinics and shared with more than 300 runners.

I hope to share and inspire more runners how I reached to where I am now – from a casual runner to an elite runner.

If I can do it, they can do it too!
