Turn back the clock & put youth back into your step!

Sep 19, 2017

I’ve been hearing about the wonderful shock absorbing, running gait enhancing, HOKA trainer’s on blogs. from friends and through industry experts, for some time now. After suggesting them to my patients over the last 6 month’s, and hearing great feedback from them too, I finally got round to replacing my old trainer’s with an new pair of HOKA’s.

Kevin, at Up and Running in Chandlers Ford, had explained to me how they were designed with only a 4mm rise from heel-to- toe, with a slight rocker shaped sole, to help with midfoot strike and smooth propulsion. I’d heard similar before and was yet to be convinced!

Well, wearing them last night for my first run I was pleasantly surprised! Immediately my trunk felt more upright, I was naturally and effortlessly mid-foot striking and felt more energetic coupled with comfortable shock absorption soles I literally felt 10 years younger. This is how running used to feel when i was 10kg lighter and 10 years younger!!

So thank you HOKA and Kevin at Up and Running for turning back time!

First impressions, fantastic. I’ll let you know how the fair over time.
