More praise for FootBalance QuickFit insoles. Kristin Gates, a long distance hiking blogger, recently reviewed FootBalance QuickFit insoles. Spoiler alert: the review is a good one!

Below is a excerpt from the review posted on Gates' blog Eating Miles for Breakfast

Having received this unhappy tale of a lost sole we we were delighted to team up with Tony Pryce Sports in Barnstaple with an emergency replacement.

"I have a request and a story you may be able to help me with. I bought a pair of FootBalance custom insoles from a local running shop a few weeks ago, I was just getting used to them and finding them brilliant. When one evening as I was leaving my house to go to my local triathlon club I managed to stupidly leave my pair of running trainers on the roof of my car.

In our last post we wrote about out sports day in Vierumäki sports centre, which hosts The Sport Institute of Finland, a national coaching and training centre for sports and physical education and a number of Finland's top athletes train there. In our last post we reviewed TRX Suspension Training®. We also had the opportunity to take part in a Powerslider training session.

Here in Finland we recently had the opportunity to attend a sports day at the Vierumäki sports centre. In Finland if you want try the most up to date exercises then Vierumäki sports centre is the place to go to since it hosts The Sport Institute of Finland, a national coaching and training centre for sports and physical education and a number of Finland's top athletes train here.

One of the exercises we had the opportunity to try out was TRX Suspension Training®.

The leading international exhibition for the outdoor and sports industry ISPO MUNICH 2015 was held in Münich from the 5th to 8th of February 2015. FootBalance again participated in the exhibition, showcasing its unique concept of computer aided foot analysis and custom insoles, as well as exploring the latest trends and innovations of the sports industry.

It is time to celebrate love, happiness and health. With the month of February underway, make sure you are taking time to love yourself and love your feet. One way to make sure you are loving yourself is setting yourself up for success through positive thinking and positive self talk.

Concussion and head injuries rightly get the majority of attention when it comes to rugby but foot and leg injuries form a significant percentage of injuries reported in Rugby.

Rugby union is one of the most popular team collision sports in the world. More than three million people in more than 100 countries across five continents play the sport annually.

In a questionnaire study involving over 17,000 adults between 1987 and 1990, rugby had the highest injury rate of all sports in the UK with 95.7 exercise related morbidity episodes (injury/symptom) reported per 1000 occasions of participation.

Functional fitness has gathered pace and is trending as a key exercise for 2015. We wrote previously about functional fitness all the way back in 2013.

So what is functional fitness?

Instead of working one specific muscle group at a time, functional fitness tests several muscles during a single movement. Push-ups, planks, squats, and lunges are part of the functional exercise regime.
