Shoes fit for exercise

When you’re working out, you may already be aware of the importance of performing exercises correctly, to avoid experiencing any pain or injury. This is the same concept for choosing the right footwear for exercising.

When it comes to various types of workouts, it’s a good idea to keep in mind each requires specific features within a shoe to provide the necessary support and avoid any injuries or discomfort.

As you’re looking for your next pair of runners, you might want to be mindful of some of the below features discussed.

If you’re someone who is more into lifting weights, you want your shoe to offer a firm and flat grip to the floor. This will allow not only for great form but a safe and secure grip; particularly if you will be heavy lifting.

If a gym class is more your thing, or your more into cardio or strength training, your ideal pair of runners offer support, comfort and grip. As you’re likely to be doing activities such as running and jumping which means you’ll be heavy on your feet.

When shopping for your next perfect fit, remember to choose a pair with great support, has nice room to give those toes a good wriggle (but not too loose where they can slip around), the grip at the ankle doesn’t rub to avoid blisters, they’re lightweight and remember COMFORT IS KEY!

At Hoppers Physio, we offer a wide range of services to help you improve your quality of life and to get back into what you love doing most. We even offer podiatry services where our caring podiatrist will guide you every step of the way!
