Luke's Locker is only in Texas and it's been in business for more than 35 years. It specializes in providing customers the best running shoes on the market, along with great sportswear, workout gear and a wide variety of accessories like running watches and hydration equipment. If you're not a runner, you'll enjoy the diverse selection of sports-specific shoes (football, basketball, soccer, tennis and baseball).
One of the best things about Luke's is that it has always focused on superior service and the customer experience. Shoes are individually fitted by a fitness professional, and they'll even give you advice to help you find the perfect pair.
Some of the most popular brands they carry include Adidas, Nike, Reebok and ASICS, but they carry gear, shoes and equipment in almost 50 brands. Whether you're in the market for a new pair of shoes or you want to stock up on reflective clothing, Luke's will have it.
Along with great customer service and quality products, Luke's also offers a 9 to 5 (nine weeks to a 5K!) program starting in January. That's right – if you decided that this is the year to run a marathon, Luke's Locker can help get you prepared.
This program includes an informational kickoff meeting, Saturday morning group workouts with a coach, free weekday workouts at the store, weekly training schedules, a one-time 20% off store discount and clinics about hydration, injury prevention, nutrition, running form, motivation, etc.
If running a 5K is not on your list, you're still in luck! Luke's is also offering "Luke's Training 2016" starting in January, and they have something for everyone.
