Unfortunately I made them all, thanks to the books I read.
Wakka
The Evolution DVD is a very simple but complete explaination of natural (forefoot/midfoot) style running and has the descriptions right in the video demonstrations.

You cannot have any heel strike with barefoot running or you will quickly have a big headache.

After reading "Born to Run" and investigating barefoot running techniques, I learned that I was a serious "heel-striker" and always have been. Forehead slap!

I set out to change my running form and unfortunately I went to books first instead of videos. Mistake. I wish I had found this DVD *first*. I have been investigating barefoot running, chi, and POSE, and much of it confused me, as authors tend to describe the same thing 20 different ways. And I'm sorry, a series of 50 still-frames printed in black-and-white across two pages of a book is NOT THE SAME as a VIDEO! There is simply no substitute for video when trying to learn a dynamic motion.

While this is not hollywood-quality production, it is more than good enough, and it has the information where it counts, mainly the ability to "see" what people with correct form are doing, compared to the inefficient stride that most amateurs are using. In this case a $25 DVD and 45 minutes of your time is worth weeks and weeks spent with a stack of books.

This DVD leaves little out -- it talks about "barefoot" running but avoids falling into the "cult of barefoot weirdos". It simply says barefoot runners are efficient, and that you can apply the same efficiency techniques while wearing shoes. Perfectly logical to me.

The DVD also covers using a metronome for cadence (way helpful!), and is very insightful about the theory of running uphill and downhill which most books say NOTHING about ... namely that very little should change in your form whether running flats, up, or downhill. Also a refreshingly logical perspective.

It also shows SIMPLE drills to help you feel the right way to spring off your feet. Which also makes complete sense because deep down running is simple.

I'm just an average runner, and I'm ok with that. I will never experience what a 5 or even 6 minute mile will feel like. That's not a good or bad thing, it's just reality.

When I decided to study running form, I knew that I didn't want something too complex or too involved. I simply wanted an overview of running form with simple recommendations on becoming more efficient and avoiding injuries.

Evolution Running is the DVD I decided on, and it gave me exactly the kind of information I was looking for. I picked up some great tips on things like: stride length, vertical movement, uphill and downhill running, tempo, etc.

There is no DVD that will make one a champion runner overnight, but Evolution Running will give anyone some great concepts to ponder. The information I reveived from this DVD will certainly be put to good use and I'm really glad I chose it.

You don't have to be an elite runner to learn to run like the elite runners! All runners, especially those who are just starting on a new running goal, would benefit from this video.

I bought this DVD 3 years ago, when I first started running barefoot, and the ideas in this DVD are based on barefoot running techniques. Almost all of the advice in this video is spot-on, and the vast majority of runners would benefit from using this DVD to improve their running form.

I coach track (distance and middle distance events) at the high school level, and I pass this DVD around to my athletes, especially ones that are prone to overstriding and heel striking. I was a heel-striker for 25 years, and this resulted in repeated injuries, including 5 cases of plantar fasciitis. Using the techniques from this video (and applying them to barefoot running) I have been injury free for the past 3 years.

The advice in this video isn't really new--Jack Daniels and many other coaches have taught these techniques for years--but this DVD brings a lot of great ideas on running form together in one place, and does what no book can do--show you clearly the difference between proper running form, and the way most amateurs run (overstriding with slow cadence).

My only gripe is the advice given about running downhill. He claims that you can land with your foot slightly behind the spot directly below your center of mass, when running downhill, and this is plain wrong. Besides coaching, I also teach physics at my high school, and I know that landing behind your center of mass produces a net torque on the body, which can only be counteracted if you are *accelerating* downhill.

Ken does a really great job of breaking down the basics; strike point, leg position, cadence, efficiency all in a simple format. The graphics used in the production leave a little bit to be desired but they convey the main points to support his philosophies on technique. The way he has broken down the efficiencies is easy to understand and when illustrated with some top national champion triathletes it becomes very obvious what the proper running technique looks like.

I have shaved minutes off my 5k times and now running with much less (none) pain.

I have recommended this to pretty much everyone I run with... especially those that show poor form.

If you want to gain more speed through efficiency and run with less pain drop the $30!
