Needed a new pair of trainers. Went on the treadmill and they looked at how I actually run and found the best pair for my running style.
The sales staff were very friendly and helpful with great knowledge ended up with a new pair...

Amazing service, analysed my gait then based on that picked out 5 pairs of trainers to try. Gave me thinking time and offered to let me try each shoe on the treadmill to make sure my decision was the right one. Will 10000% go back...

Needed an upgrade on my trainers. Really helped having the treadmill and looking at how I actually run.
The sales staffed worked their magic and I walked out with a new pair of Hoka's.
