Are You A Beginner Runner Feeling Overwhelmed By Getting Started?

A Personal Message From Dr. Lynne G. Virant


If You Answered Yes To Any Of These Questions,
You Are In The Right Place!

It’s common to try to start running without seeking professional advice. You might be thinking, “It can’t be that hard! I’ve been able to run my whole life…” In reality, taking on running as a form of exercise is more difficult than it seems. In order to start running, you need a carefully designed plan for you and your body. Otherwise, you’re likely to suffer from unnecessary injuries, aches, and pains as your body struggles to adapt to this new type of exercise.

If that’s happening to you, you’re definitely not alone, and we hear this type of thing all the time.

In fact, beginner runners are one of the most common clients that we see in our Pensacola clinic!

For Runners Who Are Just Starting...

At The Movement Clinic We’ve Created A 3 Step Process To Help Beginner Runners:

Lynne 3step process


We Get to Know YOU

Our FIRST step is to listen to your story.

Every runner was once a beginner! But we know that no two people are alike in the way their bodies respond to running and their goals.

We take time to learn about:

We believe it is possible to run FOR LIFE! We get to know what that life looks like for YOU


We Implement YOUR Customized Plan Together

YOU need a plan tailored to YOUR needs and YOUR goals (at home, at work, and at play!)

Often runners like you tend to base goals on what “I used to be able to run”, follow old routines, underestimate the time it takes to adjust and overestimate what they can achieve. This can lead to frustration and giving up too soon.

When you partner with The Movement Clinic, we work TOGETHER with you as a community to set up YOUR customized plan so you an stay committed, be consistent, and get back to loving running again!


We Coach and Teach You How to Be Active FOR LIFE

“What would be possible if there were no limits to YOUR running?”

When working towards new goals, it’s difficult to see beyond the struggle..

Once you start to make small steps towards your goal… YOUR vision of running often becomes even greater!

Suddenly there are no limits and we coach and teach you ways to think and move so you can be RUN FOR LIFE.

Finally Get Started Running!

You don’t have to sacrifice the activities you love over problems that can be fixed.
Let’s chat about how you can feel like yourself again.
