Welcome to StrideUK

StrideUK - It's not just what your feet are doing!  

If you believe you've had your running technique analysed before other than at StrideUK, think again. Unlike 99% of all other running stores in the uk offering video gait analysis service,  StrideUK stand proud to be one of the very few video gait analysis companies that analyse the whole body instead of just your feet.

As much as running shoes are important...we show you how to run better!

Since launch in August 2008, StrideUKs clientele has grown so quickly due to being one of the very few Video Gait Analysis companies that pay strict attention as to how the entire body performs during the process of running. Without promoting one particular running style for all, StrideUK fine tune each and every ones running technique... individually.
INTRODUCING SALLY BALDWIN!

The following analysis is that of Sally Baldwin, representing GB in the world championships next year. (Her first competition year this year took her Fourth place in the ITU 2014 World Triathlon Grand Final)
This is a 4 part recording to demonstrate the depth of information we provide if visiting to have your running technique analysed. To see more of her analysis click here...

New glazed gait lab

Following our investment of our fully glazed running gait lab enclosure, running in your smalls, tri suit or speedos can now be restricted to just yourself and the performance analyst (unless public display is your stuff!). Privacy is an important part of your running technique analysis at StrideUK as it's always important that you feel comfortable using our facilities. Our freshly refurbed running technique lab includes a state of the art 'ortho gait' treadmill simulating as close to natural running as you're going to get, 3CCD digital cameras to film you 360 degrees, calibration boards to identify the slightest of biomechanical weaknesses and a bespoke high speed lighting system to capture every movement in best clarity possible.  
(We've got an endless jar of Wine gums that we pull out for the good ones!)

Testimonial - Phil Harris

Hi guys,
Just wanted to write and say thankyou so much!
I saw Mitch just over 2 weeks ago with recurring ITB problems and even though due to work and spare time restrictions I’ve only been doing around half of the homework he set me I still managed to complete 2 hard going running events this last weekend (Judgement Day & Tough Mudder) without so much as a niggle!
Mid Feb I couldn’t run more than 5km, this last weekend I ran 23 miles in 2 days no problem. 
My top tip to share back to you is that Mitch advised me to stretch out my hip flexors for 60 seconds each side twice a day so I’ve incorporated this into my tooth brushing routine! Each time I brush my teeth I kneel down on the bathroom floor and stretch out for 60 seconds each side with my electric toothbrush helpfully counting the time for me! I’ll keep up the stretching and exercises as I’m amazed how quickly it’s helped me. Thanks again. Phil Harris Read more about Mudstacle obstacle running events...
