Gait Analysis




Tri Active provides a full video gait analysis service in our Chester shop, to ensure you get the correct running shoes. 

Perfect foot and ankle movement, where the foot strikes the floor and rolls from the outside of the heel inwards, pushing off from the ball of the foot, is called Optimum Pronation or Neutral running. 'Over-Pronation' is most common, where the ankle collapses inwards, whilst some of us 'Supinate' where the ankle pushes outwards under full body weight.

It is estimated that 4 times your body's weight passes through your feet whilst running and wearing the correct shoe for you will give the unique support your feet need so that you can avoid injuries to your feet, ankles, knees, hips and spine.

Using our treadmill and video software, we can analyse your running in detail to assess how your feet, ankles, legs and upper body move and interact. This information helps us to find the most suitable type of running shoe for you from our wide range of shoes available, helping to avoid injury and allowing you to reach your full potential.



To request a gait analysis, simply fill in the form below, we will then contact you as soon as possible to arrange a date for you.

Gait analysis will typically take 20-30 mins. Please see our opening times below before booking.

Use the comments/questions box to tell us:

the date and time you would like to book / your shoe size / anything else that may give us a better understanding of  your requirements.

If you need to cancel your booked session, please let us know as soon as possible so that we can re-allocate your time.

These services are provided free of charge to those people wishing to purchase shoes to ensure you receive the most suitable products for your personal needs.

Due to the time spent providing this service, we charge a nominal £15 fee for those people who do not purchase shoes at the time of the service. This fee will be deducted from any shoes you purchase from us within 3 months of your gait analysis, on production of your gait analysis receipt.
