Great service - helpful assistants who know what’s best, and respect budgets too. The advice I received from these assistants not only made my choices better but also saved me a tonne too. The store also has a great selection of stock and is well laid out.

Large and fully stocked, this store contains nearly all you could need for the outdoors, if you don't mind the price tag. Interestingly decorated and staffed by knowledgeable and helpful people, this store is worth going to.

Had gait analysis done here which led to custom insoles being made and also buying trainers to put the custom insoles in. Very good customer service here, spent 90 minutes analysing my husband's gait. Used treadmill and video recording. Wide range of shoes to try. In the end hubby's feet needed custom insoles which they made there and then ...even though it was 4pm on a Sunday. Good manager in the running department with good knowledge. All around excellent service. Will be returning.

I visited the shop last week to purchase a running belt, when I was greeted by a very friendly, enthusiastic and knowledgeable member of staff. He went on to give me plenty of advice about my first up coming half marathon. In addition to this he also put me on the treadmill so that I could see which kind of shoes I should purchase. He made some great recommendations on shoes, apps and general running advice. I couldn't be happier with the service that I received and I would definitely be visiting the shop again closer to marathon day for more equipment.
