The be Nimble academy was created to educate consumers and professionals on the importance of proper foot function. As we have evolved over time we have begun to lose touch with one of the keys to getting peak performance out of our bodies…our feet. At the be Nimble Academy we are here to help get your feet and entire body functioning at its peak. See below to learn more.
The expert behind the academy
Lee Saxby is the creator of the 'Functional Foot map'. The Functional Foot Map system is based on Lee's experience over the past 20 years as a coach and consultant for athletes, researchers and shoe brands interested in the potential benefits of barefoot running and natural foot function.
“The human footprint is more than an impression of the foot, it is an expression of the forces acting through the foot” – Lee Saxby
Chris MacDougall (author of the best-seller 'Born to run') and 'barefoot professor' Dan Lieberman of Harvard University, are amongst the list of people who have benefited from Lee's coaching methods and unique approach to restoring foot function.
Joe Nimble is excited to be working with Lee on a shared vision and a combined mission to educate the world on healthy foot function and the benefits of functional footwear.
