We offer remote video gait analysis plus strength & prehab training with Renee Metivier at Recharge Sport Gym in Bend, OR. Renee's been involved in elite running since 2005 and her services and qualifications are listed below. Contact us to set either of these up.


Optimizing your training by fine tuning form with specific correctionals and strength to YOUR NEEDS could mean the difference between staying healthy and hitting your goals. And running pain free and functioning at 100% is way more fun! Running faster and longer is just the added bonus.


Your body is put under a lot of eccentric stress with running so your tendons and muscles need to be prepared. Posture, stability, and strength are so very important. But it is hard to navigate all the misinformation and what would be best for your running goals. Renee is an elite and championship runner who has navigated many injuries. These led her to advanced certifications in correctional exercise and strength training, with over 10 years of experience starting with her time living at Olympic Training Center and learning from the head physiologists, doctors, therapists, and coaches.


Renee offers specific running form analysis, a functional movement screen to identify injury risk factors and movement restrictions. In addition she can create a weekly strength, mobility, and prehab plan complete with videos and links that can easily be incorporated into training routines - coordinating all ancillary work with running training and life schedule for maximum efficiency and effectiveness. 


Price is $350 and includes one follow up session and all email communication and questions.


Additional 30-min sessions for only $50

Continued analysis and updates to plan for $150/month.
