Fleet Feet Sports North Wales, Pa


Not to long ago I got the opportunity to visit Fleet Feet Sports in North Wales with some of my super fab blogger friends.  Stephanie & Sherry have really been amazing at wanting to get healthier and Valerie is just plain a running ANIMAL! lol. I say that because she is hard core in her fitness goals.  It's admirable.  

I for one have had known of Fleet Feet for many years.  I was introduced to them via One Fit Mama when they partnered with them in their Biggest Loser Challenge.  

I'm so thrilled that I've gotten the opportunity to get a more 'behind the scenes' look at the wonderful moms/business women who run Fleet Feet Sports in North Wales, Pa

When I lived in Chicago-I was a serious runner.  (I know.  Hard to believe, right?  SWEAR!) 

But upon my new life in Philly I've gotten tired...and frankly flat out LAZY.  

So I've wanted to get back in the swing of things.  Not just to lose weight.  But to feel better about myself...have more energy..etc.  So this awesome partnership with Fleet Feet in North Wales came at the perfect time.

This place is TOTALLY 'newbie' friendly!

When you walk in the door the women are welcoming and the place is so inviting.  

I have never seen more gadget in my life!

Being the NEW BALANCE show junkie that I am, it was great to see their awesome shoe collection.  I'm in love with the shoes that Valerie from Amplified Kids got.  She is a SERIOUS runner...and now she glows in the dark when she runs! lol

Another gadget that I loved with from this company called Nathan.

It's called VITAband and it's a cross between a medical ID bracelet and a credit card!!  You don't have to be a runner to love this product!  How many times have you been out and about and didn't want to carry your purse in?!?!?  Just wear the VITAband! 

You can get one from Fleet Feet in North Wales for approx. $20.  

Top 3 Reasons I Love Fleet Feet, North Wales

1) Mom owned businesses ROCK!  Annmarie & Mysi-moms to many partnered together to open this store.  I'm 100% a bigtime backer of any mom business out there!  (That's how we moms roll, yo!)

2) It doesn't matter your fitness level...they treat you with the same kindness!  Yeah.  Ya know..sometimes you walk into a store and feel uncomfortable and out of your element?  Not at Fleet Feet.  They make you feel at ease..and at home. 

3)  They sell you shoes that FIT...not shoes for a profit.  I love that. You can go into a show store and the salesperson will try and get you to nab a shoe thats expensive before one that fits your feet the best.  Not at Fleet Feet Sports in North Wales.  They actually measure your feet and make sure the shoe not only fits your style, but also fits your foot!  What a concept, right?
