A friend recommended StartFitness when I was looking for a new pair of trainers. Staff offered assistance without being in my face, they checked my feet to help me find the most suitable pair (they advised me I overpronate), brought out a selection of different makes and different prices for me to try.
Since then I have always gone back to them and I always get the same level of knowledgeable friendly service. I find all the staff are really into sports themselves and really passionate and know their stuff, I have even gained valuable training tips from them.
They stock a variety of fitness gear from shoes (football, running, trail, etc), clothing (clothes for cycling, running, gym, etc) and accessories (watches, supports, hats, etc).
I find their prices are all very competitive too.
I used their shop in Durham and Newcastle. The Newcastle is larger and has more stock, but the Durham branch has all the essential gear you will need. They also have a website, however I have never bought anything from it:
