It sounds great doesn’t it? Just pull on a different pair of shoes before you set off for work in the morning and you’ll be getting a lower body workout with every step you take. But is it too good to be true?
Here’s a short video of a piece that was run on the Today Show which had a look at three different toning shoe brands – Skechers Shape Ups, MBTs and Reebok Easy Tones – and trialled them on three normal women.
It’s quite interesting to hear their feedback.
The slightly more scientific results from the Reebok lab were also interesting. When all’s said and done, if all that toning shoes do is encourage you to walk a little further than you would normally, then that’s a pretty positive result in itself. After all, walking to lose weight is something that we can all do – and should do. It’s a very effective way to not only lose weight but gain a whole bunch of other, very significant and important, health benefits into the bargain.
