Just to give a thumbs up to Start Fitness for great service (I'm not connected to them!).

There was a problem with my order...but THEY phoned ME to tell me within a few days of the order! And they resolved the issue by substituting a higher priced item for the same price!

Now that's what I call service - better than most.

Luckily my local running shop - they also give a lot back to the sport with sponsorship of races and prizes etc.

Yep.

My daughter went into buy her first proper training shoes recently and was expecting the usual "blokey garage mechanic service" and was very impressed with the patience and undertanding; despite reinforcing all the female stereotypes by trying on almost everything in the shop :>}

Did she still buy the ones in the colour that matched her vest?

:)

Nice girly pink ones

I even bought her a girly pink Lifa for Christmas too ...good Lord, a pink Lifa, Lifas are Navy blue,whatever next :>}

Isn't a lifa that scratchy thing you use in the bath?

What did your mother tell you about frequenting strange sports shops...it will all end in tears

absolutely agree

only criticism is that they closed the middlesbrough shop a few years ago :-(


though i easily spent enough to keep them going......

OOK - it only ends in tears for my other half who pays :)

I love going there, I'm like a kid in a sweet shop :D

I used to work with the guy who manages the Durham store (before he became the manager). He is SERIOUSLY into sport - try saying that about the staff at JJB Sports!

You're being unkind

I'm sure the JJB staff watch football enthusiastically :>}

Which is what most of my students think represents an "interest in sport"

I can vouch for my local Start fitness shop here in Beverly E Yorks, ( also quicker than mail order !)
