Why attend the Workshop
Lee Saxby has designed the Functional Foot Map system for therapists, trainers and coaches who understand the importance of the foot in human movement and require an efficient, repeatable and reliable method to assess foot function. The Functional Foot Map is
a practical footprint analysis system that can be easily integrated into both clinical and gym environments.
Who should attend the Workshop
This certification workshops is aimed at therapists, trainers and coaches.
What you will learn
Form is function. Learn why the human foot needs to be ‘foot-shaped’ to be functional and why the ‘shoe-shaped’ foot is the biggest challenge to functional, pain-free movement.
Learn what the human footprint represents biomechanically and how it can be used to qualify foot shape, arch types, and basic foot loading kinetics and what this data tells us about the function of the foot.
Learn how to set up and operate the Functional Foot Map to accurately collect footprints and how to apply a simple and visual analysis to help interpret the data and educate the client on their current level of foot function.
Learn how to restore the function of the human foot by the habitual use of correctly fitted, anatomically intelligent, functional footwear and the application of restorative soft tissue techniques, mobility drills and corrective exercise techniques.
The Functional Foot Map Pedograph has been created to be not only the best ‘Harris Mat’ in production but also the most accurate and durable clinical tool available to record and qualify the human footprint.

Europe’s largest outdoor trade fair is becoming a leading global platform
With a new innovative concept, Europe’s largest outdoor trade fair, OutDoor by ISPO, is taking place in Munich for the first time from June 30 to July 3, 2019, after relocating from Friedrichshafen. OutDoor by ISPO not only stands for the annual trade show, but for a year-long, integrative and cross-media platform for an audience of international industry experts.
Rescue your feet!
Restoring foot function begins with restoring foot ‘form’ or shape.
In the build up to the OutDoor by ISPO we offer an exceptional opportunity to have your foot function assessed by Lee Saxby - world renowned running coach - and our team of nimble experts.
Over the last 15 years Lee has been a key figure in the natural movement / barefoot revolution and has been consulted by various shoe companies, university research projects, and injured athletes for his ability to diagnose and correct biomechanical problems. Best-selling author Christopher McDOugall (“Born to run”) as well as the barefoot professor Daniel E. Liebermann (Harvard University) were able to regain their natural athletic abilities through Lee´s coaching methods.
You will also get the chance to test drive our range of Joe Nimble functional footwear and understand the importance of the #toefreedom design on healthy foot function and pain-free running.
"So glad I ditched the barefoot/minimalist shoes and learned the difference functional footwear can have and the importance of a-symetrical shoe shape. I am now running 50+ miles per week - something I could never have imagined 18 months ago whilst battling recurring injuries. Thanks Lee Saxby for your coaching wisdom and Joe nimble for your awesome shoes!" Piers Deg - Happy Nimble customer & functional footwear convert!
After your visit to the Joe Nimble Booth you will come away with a footprint assessment, the next steps towards healthy foot function and maybe even a new pair of shoes!
