For sport rehab professionals

The X-Training School


Get inspired be an expert in running injuries
Learn skill sets to provide performance rehab
Rewire your knowledge!

Three modules
Mechanism of run injury level 1 | flat running road & trail
October 16th, 4pm to 10pm CET
Mechanism of run injury level 2 | single track, trail & mountain running

October 30th, 4pm to 10pm CET

Return to run and competition protocols
November 20th, 4pm 10pm CET

Two Masterclass
SHOES : technology, injuries, performance
October 24th, 4pm to 7pm CET
The FOOT : the core of running
November 7th, 4pm to 7pm CET

Presented live virtually
The program is structured to allow to take the Strides to Perform and the Rehab certification back to back either in the spring or fall
Spring 2022 schedule coming soon
We suggest you focus on one certification per season

Running injuries are due in part to poor training strategies, musculoskeletal imbalances and stressful mechanical load on the kinetic chain. This certification will deepen your knowledge in the causes, with rehab & prehab strategies for both road & trail-mountain running.

“ Chloë has become a key role in my own professional development. Her multidimensional breath of education, research, and 25 years of training allow her to relay key concepts with in-depth insight on the relationship between biomechanics, mechanisms of injury,  corrective exercises that are practical, effective, and sustainable. She understand run rehab & performance at every level. She teaches with such passion and enthusiasm that her platform backed on experience, science and research is palatable and fun.”
Tim Tollefson, physical therapist and elite runner, Mammoth Lakes, California
