Until recently unknown outside of Japan, now gaining more and popularity worldwide, SLOW JOGGING is an exercise method elaborated by Prof. Hiroaki Tanaka based on years of research at Fukuoka University, Japan as well as his impressive running career. The term “slow jogging” was chosen for emphasis, that even though we are talking about a sport traditionally associated with moving fast, slow can be a perfectly good way to do it. It is a an efficient, healthier, and pain-free approach to running for all ages and lifestyles.
The key is what we call niko niko pace. In Japanese, niko niko means “smile”. Unlike traditional training, that requires concentration and effort, Slow Jogging is more like taking a walk, at the intensity light enough to enjoy conversation or, if by yourself, to just smile. For most beginners it means jogging at a walking pace.
But Slow Jogging is not just about the pace – it’s also an injury-free running technique, allowing safe beginning and efficient progress. This course covers everything from the introduction, basic steps with detailed explanation of the landing technique to the theory and science behind it.
By the end of this course you will be ready to start the exercise habit you will be looking and a life-long injury free jogging experience.
Slow Jogging – SLOW is the new fast!
