The Running Lab is the brainchild of Tim Bransdon.. a life-long student of human movement and biomechanics
Since the age of two Tim has being actively involved in sport.. including ten years playing Premier level rugby. Throughout most of these rugby years, the aim of the game for Tim was speed.. and more specifically, explosive speed
The Running Lab was born after many years of self experimentation with improving foot and body posture, strength and efficiency in middle to longer distance running. This
My Running Lab and StrongFeet™ programs have allowed me to offer far more than a bandaid solution to pain and dysfunction
resulted in Tim ditching the orthotics and overly-supportive running shoes which were a dependent crutch for many years
In recent years, Tim has transformed himself from being a slave to heel striking.. into an efficient runner with no more than 3mm of rubber under his feet at any time. This life long dedication and love for all things running, feet and human performance spawned the formation of The Running Lab
Along with The Running Lab Tim owns and runs Wollongong Podiatry.. a clinic specialising in lower limb mechanics, injury, treatment and rehabilitation
Brianna credits her active childhood growing up on the beauiiful Central Coast of NSW as the catalyst for choosing a career which would combine her mutual love for fitness and movement.
Brianna completed her Certificate 3 and 4 in fitness to enable her to further her love of outdoor activity, gym, running, crossfit and yoga. This passion for always pursuing active healthy living fuels Brianna’s desire to get injured clients back doing what they love doing
Biomechanics and sports podiatry compliment my passions outside of work, making work seem like a hobby
Brianna jumped at the chance to join The Running Lab and Wollongong Podiatry after excelling in her role in the graduate program with Newcastle’s John Hunter Hospital. This role had Brianna working with a large team of physiotherapists, specialists, surgeons and fellow podiatrists
Brianna is a StrongFeet™ and Running Lab Certified Practitioner, using these skills to help clients achieve marathon PB’s, squat without pain, prevent bunions, reduce foot pain, improve balance and strengthen feet to reduce falls risks. Seeing people achieve their goals makes Brianna proud to be a podiatrist at The Running Lab and Wollongong Podiatry
Tim grew up in Albury and completed a Bachelor of Podiatric Medicine at Charles Sturt University. While studying, Tim was exposed to a variety of populations including the elderly, sporting and high risk clients, whilst also completing an overseas placement in Vietnam.
Tim grew up playing AFL and later transitioned into CrossFit. From this transition grew a significant appreciation for the human body and led Tim down an ongoing learning path in human movement efficiency and biomechanics.
Tim's human movement interest, and overall adding value to the lives of his clients, led him to Wollongong Podiatry and The Running Lab. Here, Tim is able to work alongside the talented team to offer the best and highest level of treatment available to meet clients needs, goals and expected outcomes.
Tim is able to help clients in all areas of podiatry including general foot and nail care, diabetic foot assessments, nail surgeries, foot pain and biomechanical issues.
Overall, if you want to live, feel and move better, Tim's aim is to help you find your way.
