Dr. Nicholas Romanov is a developer of the Pose Method® and world-renowned sports scientist. He was born, raised and educated in Russia, but relocated to United States in the early 90s.
In 2002, alongside Prof. Tim Noakes, et al., Dr. Romanov conducted a groundbreaking scientific study that demonstrated how to reduce, by virtually 50%, the impact on the knees in running. The study was published in Medicine & Science in Sports & Exercises in 2004.
“Thank you so much for introducing me to your revolutionary ideas. It takes great courage to go against the grain of conventional wisdom and to challenge the experts.”
“I met Dr. Romanov in 1996 at the Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, where he presented a workshop on the biomechanics of running. I was quite impressed by the logical simplicity of his concepts. I have since incorporated his teaching methods into the refinement of my clients’ skills – and with excellent results.”
“To tens of thousands of runners, including me, Nicholas Romanov walks (and runs) on water. Approaching running as a skill to be learned, his groundbreaking, much-copied Pose Method established a new paradigm, promoting a soft, natural landing that minimizes impact, maximizes speed, eliminates injuries, and saves running careers. No one thought about form until Romanov came along; now we know that it is crucial.”
“About one year ago, I could not run 50 yards without extreme IT Band Syndrome pain. I spent 30 minutes with Dr. Romanov and could run as far and as much as I wanted pain free. Today, I am the USA Paratriathlon National Champion.”
From a two-time Olympic coach and creator of the Pose Method who has trained the running elite, an essential guide for all runners seeking to go faster and farther without injury

Christopher McDougall’s Born to Run—and the wildly popular natural running trend it sparked—changed the way we think about running, but it has also prompted many questions: Have we been running the wrong way? And, have we been running in the wrong kind of shoe? What is the safest type of foot strike? How many types are there? And what is a foot strike anyway? No existing guide has clearly addressed these concerns—until now. The Running Revolution provides both beginning and experienced runners with everything they need to know in order to safely and efficiently transition to and master a safer and more biomechanically efficient way of running that is guaranteed to improve performance and minimize wear and tear on the body.
More than a one-size-fits-all guide, The Running Revolution provides readers with clear instructions, complete with helpful illustrations, that they can easily integrate into their unique running histories in order to run safely, intelligently, and efficiently for many years to come.
