It was a cold day, but I had goals in mind - sell, learn, enjoy it. And I achieved all 3 goals. This connection I have with Start Fitness and More Mile is so special and therefore is my favourite or second favourite (depending on how I'm feeling) reason that I'm in Newcastle.

Are Running Shoes Good For Walking?

Hey guys, Last time we spoke about whether running shoes are necessary. Whether you need them for sports or training and exercise, and in short, the conclusion we came to was, yes - running shoes are important. But what about for walking?

Are Running Shoes Important?

  Did you know, the first running shoe termed as a sneaker was made in 1917 by the manufacturer, Goodyear, and the reason they're called sneakers is because the rubber sole makes it easy for you to 'sneak' around quietly?
