If you find yourself too busy to take exercise on a regular basis, or even if the idea of a trip to the gym just isn’t your cup of tea, you might want to take a look at toning shoes. Toning footwear helps to give wearers a lower body workout just by walking around.
This is done by the use of a special design of sole, which injects imbalance into the walking process. There are different designs of sole to be found in different brands and styles on the market today, but the basic operating principle in all cases is the addition of imbalance.
This makes the lower body muscles work harder as they respond by trying to restore the body’s natural balance. The end result is that you get a lower body workout that will trim your bottom and tone your legs as you walk around as normal during the course of your daily routine.
Every step that you take will help you to get into better shape. It’s ideal for busy career women and/or soccer moms who have heavy demands on their time. Just put one foot in front of the other – no need to schedule time for a trip to the gym – and you can get into better shape.
There are a variety of different brands and styles to choose from. Skechers Shape Ups and Reebok EasyTones are two of the best known brands – but there are plenty of others available. Masai Barefoot Technology (MBT) Shoes, Avia and FitFlops are other well known brands which are well worth a look.
The principle of imbalance is common across all toning shoes, but the aesthetics and styling varies quite a bit. Try to choose a style that will go with the types of outfits that you normally wear. that way you’ll be able to wear your toning shoes more often and will get better value for money – as well as increased toning benefits – from them.
