Why Having the Right Shoes Matters

When it comes to working out, it can sometimes be confusing to know which type of footwear is best.

There are so many brands and types out there today that people often end up getting sold shoes that can actually hurt more than help when it comes to exercise.

The goal of exercise should be to strengthen your feet, yet many shoes do the opposite. They do too much to help “support” your feet, meaning that your feet cannot work to build their own strength or stability.

In the same way that having a cast on your arm or leg leads to weaker (but more stable) joints, so does having the wrong shoes.

What to Consider When Buying Shoes

When you do need new shoes, there are a few things that would be good to know before you make your final decision.

That’s why in this week’s video we will:

1) Break down what to consider when buying shoes for exercise

2) Explain how the foot works and why it’s important to train it

3) Give recommendations on which brands are good for your feet

So, if you want to make sure you are doing right by your feet (and supporting your overall strength and balance) check out the video below:
