Nathan Osborne came to Somax at age 16 to improve his speed on the 300 hurdles. He dropped his time from 44 seconds to 40.4—an improvement of 8%.  When he returned to train with his track team, his coach asked his parents "Where did Nathan get that mile-long stride?".

By increasing his stride angle from 95 to 125 degrees (30 degrees), Nathan increased his stride length 60%, as each degree increases stride length by 2%.

Nathan also increased his breathing range in his chest from 3" to 4", which helped reduce the respiratory distress from exercise induced asthma.
