We're sponsoring a local podcast // Run Chat Live

We have recently started to sponsor a local podcast called Run Chat Live, hosted by Matt Phillips. Matt is a Running Injury & Performance Specialist based in our local area, sunny Sussex.

Matt is a lecturer in Anatomy & Physiology and has written for numerous publications & websites and of course being a keen runner himself he makes the perfect host. Matt opens up various topics for discussion surrounding the sport on his weekly podcast ‘Run Chat Live’ with a focus on injury prevention/recovery and increasing performance. Most episodes have a guest speaker, often experts in their field or professional marathon runners from all over the world to discuss their personal/professional experiences and any tips/ tricks they have come across on their running journey.

There is not a question unanswered it seems, some topics covered include; understanding and analysing pain, future footwear and comparisons, and various  physio and osteopathy talks just to name a few. This barely touches the surface of the plethora of information the podcast has to offer, if you’re into your running or want to get back into it this is an easy to listen to, in depth podcast.

The RCL website has plenty to offer aside form the podcasts, including Injury Q&A, some great exercise videos as well as in depth articles by matt on all matters running, if you’ve got questions this is the place to have them answered. Whether you run for fun or are training for an upcoming event there are some very interesting articles that could alter and improve your running experience.

Something we need to mention is that Matt sports a fantastic beard, maintained and well groomed with a selection of our products. Running gets you hot and sweaty, especially in summer and it’s important to keep some kind of grooming regime; Matt uses our beard shampoo to remove any build up within the beard and then conditions with either one of our black pepper (his favourite scent) oil or balm and brushes through with one of our Boar bristle brushes.
