Sam is one of the Ultra X Co-Founders. If he's not actually out running, chances are he's busy writing about it (or plotting Ultra X strategy!)
This week’s guest is Emma Kirk, a self-proclaimed trainer geek, strength and conditioning coach and track hype queen at Track Life London. When not clocking up miles, Emma can be found with a full calendar of clients for her new footwear consultancy business which she launched just two weeks ago! In this interview, we’re tapping into that side of her brain to answer all your trainer troubles, and to conquer any questions you may have ahead of a much more promising 2021.
From what running shoes should you buy, to when you should change your trainers and carbon plate technology, this discussion has it all! A must for all runners out there regardless of experience.
For any questions you might have for Emma, feel free to get in touch with her on Instagram @emmakirkyo.
