Humans may be born to run but fitness experts differ on exactly how to embark on what has been called the most natural cardiovascular workout.Some chase one ideal form, others work with the body's individual flow, but all praise the soft landing.For Dr. Nicholas Romanov, a Miami-based sports scientist, two-time Olympic coach and creator of the Pose Method, running is a teachable skill requiring clean, precise movements.Romanov said to assume a precise running pose, fall into gravity and pull back into the pose to re-establish a natural process that has been perverted by poor coaching and harmful shoes.Vincent added that most runners' steps were too long.Connecticut-based running coach Tom Holland believes if you want to be a really good runner, you just run.
