There is also a large matted stretching / core conditioning area to offer personal one to one coaching or group classes.
Why 'Instore' gait analysis is proving more popular, but does carry flaws.
Many running shops are now providing Video Gait Analysis to allow customers to run on a treadmill to help with trainer recommendation. And although that’s a good start to help make sure people are wearing the right shoes, there are a few flaws in this process. Although this style of video gait analysis can help determine if a runner is overpronating or supinating by watching in slow motion, either movement can happen for many reasons: due to the running shoe itself, a muscular problem further up the body, the treadmill itself (a 'belt driven' treadmill does not promote a realistic gait pattern, notice how running outdoors feels different to treadmill running).
This is why filming just your feet is not actually very helpful. More info ...
