Sarah, Nick and Daisy from Good Health wrote this article about their recent experiences in the lab:
Shoes and pavement. Any time, any place and at your leisure. That’s all you need for the ultimate workout. The list of reasons to run is lengthy. It reduces stress, gives you a feel-good endorphin boost and helps with weight loss. But with the pros come the cons and a dislike for running is common among people who have suffered from injury, lack experience or are running but not noticing any physical benefits. Well, now you can dust off those running shoes and say “adios” to old excuses because a new running method promises to have you reaching your goals and shifting weight in no time.

Rachel came in for a biomechanical screening to get her gait checked. Rachel is now a keen runner and marathoner. She remains a regular lab local and GetRunning regular.

What is it?
A rehabilitation and performance clinic where experts can scientifically assess sportspeople of all levels, but particularly runners. They help prevent injuries and repair existing injuries. They have physiotherapy, podiatry and massage experts on site.
Sports Lab helps repair injuries but it's also big on prehabilitation assessments - an ambulance at the top of the cliff that helps people learn how to run correctly and subsequently avoid injuries.
