I was able to visit the Lim Ket Kai Mall in Cagayan de Oro City last week and was pleased to see that Toby's Sports has undergone a major facelift. It is now called Toby's Arena and has a brighter and more spacious interior. Gone was the basketball goal for shooting and its place are more running products and the machine which I believe most runners in Cagayan de Oro and nearby places has been waiting for: Footworx Gait Analysis.
Footworx Gait Analysis
Gait analysis involves Footprint Scanning to know the foot's arch type and Video Gait Analysis to determine the way you run. Shoes suited for one's foot type and running style will then be recommended. Accordingly, benefits of proper foot alignment include better shock absorption, less fatigue or stress on joints, more efficient and powerful stride and relieves and prevents injuries.
Based on my experience in RUNNR-Ayala Cebu and Toby's-Abreeza Davao, the gait analysis is free of charge and you won't be obliged to buy anything from the store. However, when I asked the attendant in Toby's Lim Ket Kai, he told me that the machine is not operational yet as some devices are yet to be installed. I am sure more runners will troop to the store once this machine is already in function.
Here are two more photos taken inside Toby's Arena in Lim Ket Kai Cagayan de Oro.:
