Proper Fit

At Omega Sports, we always make wellness and safety a priority.

Our trained ACTIVE-PLAY Experts are focused on ensuring you reach the highest potential to be your most competitive and most comfortable. We believe that no matter what the activity or sport is you’re focused on, it all begins with your foundation- your feet.

That’s why we have invested in state-of-the-art shoe fitting technology.

All 5 neighborhood sports stores offer FREE fitting evaluations called a Proper Fit Session. We combine our foot scanning technology and gait analysis expertise to help make the right individualized recommendations. Along with listening to your goals on performance and comfort, these Proper Fit Sessions will help you maximize your desired results.

You will walk away with extra confidence in knowing that you are helping yourself to a better fit, with more comfort and improved performance. We will even provide a copy of your foot scan to your email.

We make Proper Fit Sessions the main focus at our MEGA WELLNESS Saturdays.

During the Saturday morning workshops, you expect us to highlight select footwear, insoles and socks.

Learn more about the types of running shoes that are right for you.

When choosing the right running shoe, it is important to consider support, gait, type of running, materials and fit of the shoe.

Support considerations include a flat or low arch (flexible), a medium arch (neutral) or a high arch (rigid). Gaits can be supination/underpronation, neutral or pronation/over pronation.

There are tons of different factors to consider and it can be overwhelming. Read our post on how to choose the right shoe or stop by Omega and we’ll help you find exactly what you need.

Proper Fit Sessions are quick, easy and always FREE.

Find out more about our shoe fitting process.

We even offer scheduled appointments in select neighborhood stores.

WE WILL FIT YOU FOR COMPETITION AND COMFORT!

Here are additional ways our ACTIVE-PLAY Experts help you.

Sports Fitting

The right sports gear can improve your game, comfort and safety. Because of this, it is imperative that you select the gear that best suits you and your needs.

Our ACTIVE-PLAY Experts have been supporting local athletes get gear-ready for more than 40 years. From the right size baseball bat, tennis racquet, soccer ball, protective wear… to smart ways to stay safe in water, sun and heat. More than just footwear, ask us how a Proper Fit can enhance your upcoming sports season.

Run Bras

Sports bras (or we like to call them Run Bras like our friends at Brooks Running ) are considered the first line of protection for women and the proper fit is incredibly important. Once the ligaments in a woman’s breast tissue is stretched, it can’t be repaired. So, it’s very important to support all of the different types of breast tissue in order to preserve those ligaments and elasticity. Many women are actually wearing an improperly fitted bra or don’t even know their bra size.

Our ACTIVE-PLAY Experts can help you get into the right bra for whatever activity you participate in.

For more information about Run Bras, check out our interview with Brooks Running Guru, Cara on our Omega Sports Podcast.

Product Knowledge

We know a lot about the gear you need to keep an ACTIVE-PLAY lifestyle and we love sharing that knowledge with you.

Here’s how we stay on top of our game.

  • It starts with our deep relationships with our brands. This means spending a lot of time with their technical experts, reading over their specs and learning what’s the most beneficial features for our customers.
  • Train regularly and demonstrate our knowledge with regular workshops and off-site events.
  • Attend industry events and meet brand owners. With decades and decades of success, our teams’ access is unprecedented in the industry.
  • We learn from you! Ask us questions and tell is what you think about a product. We learn more when we get direct insights from our customers. Having 7 neighborhood sports stores (opened 7 days a week) and a thriving 24 hour online presence helps us stay in sync with trends, topics and testimonials. We always share great insights and access.
  • Interview top brand leaders. With our access to top brands, we have recorded podcasts filled with tremendous product knowledge made available for our customers every month.

During our MEGA Wellness Saturday Workshops, our neighborhood stores will highlight products and share information about their features and benefits. We will occasionally have invited brands to host these demonstrations for an even more exciting experience for our customers. Make sure to check out our Saturday calendar for updates.

In the fall of 2019, we launched our first Omega Sports Podcast hosted by Doug the Shoe Guy.

This was a bi-weekly podcast where we spoke with professionals within our company, our brand partners, community leaders and beyond to get you the best and latest information on the products you love.

Here are a few of our most popular episodes:

Safety & Recovery
UV Protection

You may be in the habit of slathering on high SPF creams, and while this does offer considerable protection, what about those areas underneath your clothing? Try UV Protection clothing.

In reality, all clothing fibers naturally block UV rays to some extent. The amount of protection that fabric offers depends on the material, the weave of the fibers and the color of the fabric.
