Expert Advice

As a team of runners (some better than others!) we enjoy learning about our sport and sharing our knowledge and advice with our customers. Whether you want to understand the science behind the shoe or get training support as a first time runner – we’ve got plenty of expert advice to help.

Run Club

We get together twice a week to run as Team AR! You can find us at the shop every Wednesday from 5.40pm, for the 545 Run Club or every Sunday for The Breakfast Club at 8.00am from the Bayside Cabin, Stokes Bay Road.

Fitness Suite

We host several fitness classes and personal training sessions throughout the week. Including Kelly’s Body Blast Boot Camp, Polly’s Pilates, Michelle’s Kettlercise and weekly Yoga classes. If you want to find out more or you’re interested in hiring the fitness suite, please get in touch.

Sports Therapy

Knott Kinetics are available 7 days a week for manual therapy sessions, physiotherapy, sports massage, personal training and rehabilitation. To find out more or book an appointment please call the team on 03300412340.

Gait Analysis

There’s nothing more important than wearing the right shoe when you run, walk or train. That’s why we take the time to understand the science behind every shoe and analysis your gait. After trying several suitable options and taking each pair for a quick spin, we’re there to advise and let you feel for yourself which shoe make you feel unstoppable!

Free Coffee

We love three things: running, our customers and coffee! Now it might not be your much-loved coffee shop brew but if you fancy a coffee while you shop, chat or browse, we’ve always got the kettle on.

I have been to see Lawrence a fair few times now with work related back issues. He is extremely professional, thorough and a nice chap as well. Its refreshing to meet a young businessman whose main focus is on helping rather than earning money.

Richard Batten

Lawrence, I cannot thank you enough. After just one run I can totally feel the difference. I doubled my mileage and barely felt a niggle in my knee. As for the shins..not a dicky bird!

Your experience and knowledge serve you extremely well. Thank you again.

Angela Hurst

I cannot thank Lawrence enough for the advice & treatment he has given me over the past few months! After a couple years of constant injury & really poor advice from other so called “professionals” (not to mention the 1000’s of £ spent), I had almost given up hope of ever running again. Lawrence was recommended to me by my training partner, and it genuinely is the best thing I’ve done. After a few weeks of treatment & some custom made orthotics, I am now running longer, faster & more often than ever before (check my Strava for proof)

Shane Castle

Looking forward to getting back into a boat tonight after almost 2 weeks off with a shoulder injury. Thanks again to Knott Kinetics for helping me recover so quickly, with only four weeks till the South Coast Championships it will make all the difference. If you have any sport related aches or pains head over to their page for more information. I strongly recommend them!

Cat Hume

Really helpful and knowledgeable staff who gave great advice and sorted me with the right shoes. Thanks!

Nikki Mayhew Run Verity

Just bought my first pair of proper cross country trainers from absolute running first class service and so helpful explained everything and put me in the right direction thank you from a customer for life.

Tim Hulse Happy Customer

I went in today having never had my gait analysed or ever really ‘invested’ in a good pair of trainers. Tried a couple on the treadmill, discovered I over pronate slightly and now have a pair of Saucony Hurricane that feel like I’m walking on air. Oh and did I say I’ve just been out and got my first sub 28min 5k?!! I love these trainers, thanks guys!!

Lara Blake Happy Customer

Great service without the hard sell. Even when you need to return trainers, caked in mud, they don’t give the hard sell just try to find you another pair that will or point you in the direction of another place that could! Amazing, thank you.

Sharon Gwynn Farnham Crusader

Always top service, no need to get my gear anywhere else.

Liam Dredge Stubbington Green Runner

The best place to go for 5 star service. Absolute running are the heart and hub of the running community. Keep up the hard work guys. Looking forward to seeing the future of Absolute Running #FTS

Terry Arnott Gosport Road Runner

Excellent service, excellent prices and a thorough assessment before advising me which shoes to get. Can’t recommend highly enough.
