We want you to run forever, to be injury-free and to enjoy being active as much as we do. With that in mind, we all know the occasional injury can sideline any of us at almost any given moment, so we’ve compiled some helpful advice on how to treat the most common running-related injuries. We’ve also provided some advice on How to Come Back from an injury or extended layoff, and on how to improve your running form and technique so you’re less likely to get injured in the first place! As always, newer shoes, properly fitted to you based on your biomechanics  are one of the best ways to prevent running injuries! So let us fit you and re-assess your gait for each and every pair.

Testimonials

FITniche is the best! The sales staff are incredibly knowledgeable, friendly and helpful. I’m not a big athlete, but I never feel uncomfortable asking silly questions. Their customer service is the best!

We’ve used our one CLUB FITniche membership to save significant $ on shoes (and plenty of other stuff) for our entire family.  Love it!  Coupled with the friendliness and knowledge of the sales staff, we won’t shop anywhere else for shoes–not online, not  anywhere.

Got my first pair of legit running shoes today. As a new/slow runner I welcomed the no pressure advice and expertise. Marissa is AWESOME and took a lot of time with me to make sure I got the right fit and support. I will definitely be back!

I owe a lot of thanks and gratitude to FITniche this morning. After my marathon in January, I developed a severe case of plantar fasciitis. I went through my spring and fall in terrible pain, trying every orthotic, tape, ice, and stretch that I could think of. I visited FITniche in November to be professionally fitted for running and everyday shoes, hopeful that I would be able to return to my normal high level of activity, pain free. In just 3 months I am running pain free, waking up with zero discomfort.  I’m a tough customer, but FITniche has exceeded my expectations- check them out and realize how great your feet can feel again!
