Fit2Run, the runner’s superstore, held its first fun run Thursday July, 18 in conjunction with the opening of its new location in the Mall at Wellington Green.
The fun run celebrated Fit2Run’s new location in the mall and kicked off a regular schedule of fun runs that take place every Tuesday and Thursday evening at 6:30 p.m. Runners meet at Fit2Run, and then run around the entire perimeter of the mall.
Fit2Run is more than a running store; it’s a resource for the Wellington and Royal Palm Beach running community. Fit2Run offers services such as video gait assessments, which allows professionally trained staff to customize a runner’s shoes to their specific gait patterns.
Another addition is Fit2Run’s new partnership with Dr. Jon Chung of Keystone Chiropractic, located at 420 State Road 7, Suite 170, in Royal Palm Beach. Fit2Run and Chung have joined forces to create a partnership that offers the running community educational seminars that will enhance the overall running experience.
Chung is a chiropractor who focuses on structural correction, with a focus on structural shifts of the spine. He graduated from the University of Central Florida with a bachelor’s degree in microbiology and molecular biology before earning his doctorate from Life University’s College of Chiropractic.
Chung is certified in pediatrics from the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association, and is a structural chiropractic researcher who has been published in scientific peer-reviewed journals.
“Fit2Run is a central hub for Wellington and Royal Palm Beach’s running community,” Store Manager Brenda Browning said. “Each week we host runners from the Wellington Runner’s Club, as well as casual runners throughout the county. Dr. Chung is a staple of our running community. His unique approach to chiropractic, as well as his willingness to give his time and knowledge to the local community through his running presentations, are a valued asset to Fit2Run.”
Chung said it is an honor to partner with Fit2Run. “Fit2Run and Keystone Chiropractic share a similar goal in helping Wellington and Royal Palm Beach runners make the most of their running experience,” he said. “The proper running shoe, proper gait and optimal structure are equally critical. As one of the few chiropractors in Florida who focuses on structure, it is gratifying to know that Fit2Run recognizes the importance of spinal structure and humbling to be a part of this fantastic relationship.”
