Meet our staff


Kevin is an active member of local club Eastleigh Running Club. He's been running for over 20 years, has done 3 London's (and 12 marathons in total) and he's won the Alderley Half Marathon in the past. He also likes swimming and cycling and regularly takes part in triathlons, so he's well-placed to advise you on most things running-related.

Aniek works at U&R two days a week. When not working in the store, she works locally as a freelance Personal Trainer and is happy to pass on helpful hints and tips. Her passion for running has encouraged her to enter a number of local road races within the last few years. She is looking forward to taking part in TR24 for the second year in a row later on in 2013 (a 24 hour off-road relay 10km race against the clock!)

Scott works at the store one day a week. He has recently completed a sport and exercise science degree and his main areas are in the physiology and the biomechanics of human movement and performance. He is also a qualified personal trainer within the local area and is keen to offer advice on any training and nutrition queries.

Becky works at the store once a week.  A keen member of the Romsey Road runners and a rookie triathlete, Becky is passionate about sport.  Having just completed a masters degree in sports performance analysis, she is interested in the biomechanics of running and injury prevention and particularly enjoys a bit of off-road racing."

Gait Analysis


It's important that your running shoes fit correctly: our trained staff can help find the right shoes for you: in a short session on our treadmill they can do a video gait analysis using sophisticated Dartfish software.

Find out more about gait analysis at UP & RUNNING.

NB if you would like to enjoy the full benefits of our gait analysis system and shoe-fitting service, please arrive at least half an hour before shop closing time.
