Watch our video and see how EW can change your life.

We created the EW Run program to enhance your current running experience and to keep you running for life! Our approach is to understand your current and past level of running, including your history of health and injury, training regimen, and running goals. The EW Run team consists of some of the highest skilled clinicians in their field. Mike Eskridge, PT founded the run program in 2000. Since its inception, the EW Run Program has been utilized by Olympians, Collegiate All-Americans, Collegians, High School and recreational runners alike. Understanding the elements of your running that you can control yields confidence and encouragement. The experience is always fun and informative with any level of runner whether it be novice or world class, young, or old. EW Run sessions are hands on, whole-body, and done in a one on one setting.

Our Guarantee: Move Better, Feel Better, Live Better!


Connect: Each evaluation begins with an interview to discuss your running history, current running status, and your goals. Understanding your past, especially your history of injury will enhance our ability to unlock keys to your structure. Your training regimen, running performance, and goals will be detailed.

Structure: Understanding how your body moves is critical to running success. We incorporate an extensive, hands-on evaluation to assess mobility, flexibility, stability, and posture and then correlate our findings with your movement patterns. This process helps us to better understand critical aspects of your structure that may affect elements of your running such as stride angle. Stride angle determines the amount of ground you can cover per stride.

Stride: Our team will evaluate your stride and its elemental components. Running posture, arm carriage, cadence, and foot strike are assessed. We utilize slow-motion, video analysis to assist our evaluation. The importance of shoe selection will be discussed.

Action: Recommendations will be made to improve your running experience. Sometimes this may be corrective and sometimes not. THE POINT of our evaluation is not to change everything you do but to enhance your running.

The EW Run team hopes to see you soon!

I have been a member of the Parkinson’s training group at EW for three years. The program was specifically designed to meet the needs of the participants and the group setting is very motivational to me. Each session incorporates new exercises and provides new challenges to the group. The entire staff is always professional and Stacey Cole is the most innovative and dedicated instructor with whom I’ve had the pleasure of working and I look forward to the new challenges of each class!

I have known the founders of EW for over 20 years and have been a client since the first clinic opened. I have been working out at EW Fit since 2007. Their trainers deliver a comprehensive total body approach to fitness while making it fun! I feel so much better when I am working out at EW Fit on a regular basis.

Pilates is simply the best thing that I have discovered for injury prevention. I have been working with Angel at EW Tuscaloosa for Pilates for over two years. As a distance runner, I have been prone to injuries over the years, however, since I started Pilates at EW, I have reduced my injury incidence dramatically. I have found that I have been able to address strength, flexibility and balance all at one time while improving my body awareness and alignment. Angel is an incredible instructor and has a unique ability to communicate technique and get the most out of every exercise! About a year and a half ago, I faced a life-threatening situation when I had a carotid artery dissection. I wanted to continue to exercise during the long recovery and Angel worked with me to maintain my fitness. When I resumed running after 6 months, I did so injury free. Thank you EW for being here and thank you Angel! Professor
