Sandra D. of Holland, MI says:
"When I visited Gazelle Sports (in Holland) late in February, my goal was to find a pair of shoes that minimized the foot pain I was experiencing as I upped the mileage for my walks in preparation for a Komen event.
Jessica provided an evaluation, and advised that the shoes I had been wearing were wrong, and advised a different style. She also suggested, very nicely – I might add, that I was walking badly (my words – not hers), and when I asked what to do about that she told me about GFR, and suggested I sign up for a session.
To make a long story short – the shoes were awesome!! I was able to walk 8 miles the next day – with little pain. I attended a GFR session early in March and have been amazed with how I feel now that I’ve been working on the form for a few weeks. Outcome - - I have been able to jog – something which I’ve never comfortably done for more than a ½ mile in the past. Yesterday I jogged for 5+ miles, and felt great! My feet, my knees, and my spirit are healthy. I have just signed up for my first 5k, and am hoping to do a half marathon this summer.
