Great tips for all of us runners

Michael Silva is very knowledgeable and had great tips for all of us runners regardless of whether you are a “slow trotter” (like myself) or an elite athlete. Michael has a great sense of humor which helps to keep everyone engaged. I would highly recommend attending any seminar given my Michael Silva!

Every runner need this!

I have worked with Michael over the past several years when I am in Providence, RI. He has helped me out with running injuries and general selfcare. His RUNstrong 101 has all the basics that every runner needs.

USA Olympian, record holder


As a former swimmer, I’m relatively new to the sport of running. Signing up for my first half, I made some rookie training mistakes that led to an injury. My RUNStrong class was so eye-opening, and I know I have some great tools in place now to help make me a stronger, safer, and more successful runner. Thank you, Michael

One of the best

Michael Silva is truly one of the best at what he does! He helped me toward the end of my career to achieve many of the goals I still wanted to accomplish. His knowledge and passion is a winning combination. He believes in prevention just as much as correction. I would recommend him to any level of athlete who wants to get the most out of themselves.

Healthier and stronger

I have worked with Michael at every stage of my running career from high school, to college, and now at the professional level... I've consistently turned to him to become a healthier and stronger runner. The techniques I've learned and the treatment I have received from Michael are irreplaceable and have allowed me to keep enjoying and improving with the sport I love.

Comprehensive, straight-forward and applicable

As a high school cross country/track coach and a physical therapist who works with runners, I really enjoyed the online coaches certification course. Michael presents a comprehensive, straight-forward and applicable course covering a variety of topics related to coaching young runners successfully. I looked forward to each module and am very excited to bring back these ideas to the team this Fall!

The course is a treasure

Michael's course is a treasure trove of valuable information, techniques, and skills.  Our entire cross-country staff has taken this course and each member of our staff has found it extremely informative, fun, and beneficial.  I highly recommend this course to any distance running coach or runner.  Thank you Michael for sharing your passion and knowledge for running and keeping us running healthy.

Mike knows what it takes

“I've been working with Michael since I started running professionally in 2007.  Michael has worked with me on a range of issues including biomechanical assessment, rehab exercises and use of the Alter G, injury treatment and prevention, and organizing imaging and doctor visits after injury. He knows it takes a team to keep an athlete healthy!”

Hi, I'm Michael Silva.
I created RUNstrong® for runners just like you...

There are 50 million runners in the USA alone and 621 Million runners worldwide. For 20 years I have seen runners struggling to stay healthy and keep running for their mental, emotional, and physical health. I have witnessed runner after runner trying to navigate our confusing healthcare system, getting poor advice, and looking to the internet, with all its confusion, for help.
Sharing my expertise on running injuries and prevention, combined with helping clients thrive in life with optimal health & wellness is my mission. My goal is to provide this valuable content to reach 1 million runners before I retire. Why 1 million? Because getting to a million runners would mean I am making a bigger difference and will be the inertia needed to make a paradigm shift in the running world. I know keeping runners running successfully is the key to their health and happiness.

I welcome you to become part of my "Journey To Reach One Million Runners"!
