Say goodbye to Fitstuff and Guildford Sports Clinic as you know them, and hello to the newly-fitted shop and Fitstuff Clinic and Run Lab.
Fitstuff – title partner of the Fitstuff G3 Series – have unveiled a rather spectacular shrine to accommodate what is one of the largest range of running shoes in Surrey. Take our word for it – you’ll need to head to the shop at 23 Chapel Street in Guildford to experience the shoe room in all it’s glory!
If – like aat’s Hollie – you find yourself overwhelmed with the choice of beautiful colours and brands of trainers, you can count on the staff at Fitstuff to recommend you the perfect pair. Their staff are all runners, and they test new products as they arrive so they can offer up some great advice. They recommend that you take advantage of their free gait analysis (no appointment needed) so you come away with the shoes which best support your gait and running style. With a great range of clothing, nutrition and accessories too, you can always find an excuse to pop into Fitstuff.
If you’d like a more in-depth analysis of your running technique and style, you can head downstairs to Fitstuff Clinic & Run Lab (formerly Guildford Sports Clinic). Fitstuff Clinic & Run Lab specialise in the prevention of injury and rehabilitation back to optimum fitness using physical therapy. They offer a variety of high quality, discreet physical therapy services to ensure you receive personalised treatment and exercise programs that help you achieve your health and fitness goals. New services include pilates and barre classes, running technique analysis and beginner running courses. Their services require an appointment and have an associated cost. For pricing and booking please head to: http://www.fitstuffclinic.co.uk.
Video Analysis 60 minute focussed session. This includes video analysis of your full body running technique with advice on how to strengthen your technique and running efficiency and learn more about specific exercises to help with your drills.
Stronger-Faster-Longer. This includes an initial one-to-one assessment plus 5 x 1 hour individual sessions. After identifying your goals they will carry out an initial video analysis of your technique and a movement assessment to identify weaknesses and muscle imbalances. The initial assessment will then be followed by 5 individual running technique coaching sessions (usually on a treadmill), muscle activation exercises and movement re-patterning drills together with personalised home training recommendations. The course culminates with a video analysis review to assess improvements in your technique and efficiency.
Both Fitstuff and Fitstuff Clinic & Run Lab sponsor the next aat-events on the calendar: The Hogs Back Road Race on 2 December; and the Fitsuff G3 Series on 5 January, 19 January and 2 February. Make sure you head over to their gazebos on race day and say hello!
