We are still in the first leg of 2016, which means that it's not too late to get serious about New Year's resolutions. If you are like a lot of us, getting in shape is somewhere on your to-do list. Working out should be a fun experience, but without taking the proper precautions, it can quickly become a troublesome situation. One of the easiest and most effective ways to prevent this from occurring is by learning the proper exercise techniques and wearing compatible fitness apparel. Dayton, Ohio’s Up and Running, a fitness shoe and apparel store, is the place to go when you want to get serious about your fitness needs.
The passionate team at Up and Running provides the community with useful fitness classes and seminars that help you with everything from focusing on your running and walking techniques to preparing for a 5k. Their “Running & Walking 101 and 101.5” class is a great beginners program that includes coach-led workouts, weekly updates, and a training package. Up and Running also provides a “UAR Natural Running Form” class that trains you with the best running techniques to ensure the safest workout possible.
It is very common for those beginning to work out (particularly runners) to complain of knee, hip, and/or back pain. One of the most common causes of these types of injuries is improper equipment, often old or ill-fitted running shoes.

Their “Sit and Fit” is a foot analysis and in-depth fitting, promising the best shoes for a comfortable running experience for each athlete. In addition to offering great classes and workout clothes, Up and Running also provides women with an informational bra fitting session and a variety of sports bra selections to choose from.
