HOW TO FIND YOUR SOLE MATE FOR FITNESS TRAINING
As a personal trainer in Mississauga, I recommend that for every possible activity, there are specialty athletic shoes. Wearing the correct type not only provides the best support, but also can reduce the risk of injury. Before you buy your next pair, consider these tips:
Ideal for jogging, walking, or bicycling, running shoes are not recommended for activities that require substantial ankle support, such as jumping, racquet sports, or basketball.
Designed for professional race-walkers, most walking shoes are typically not practical for jogging or bicycling too; consider a pair of running or cross-trainer shoes instead.
With reinforced ankle support and good traction, tennis shoes are perfect for activities that involve side-to-side movement. In addition to racquet sports, tennis shoes are also appropriate for basketball and aerobics.
If you participate in a wide variety of activities, cross-trainer shoes are an economical choice for jogging, walking, racquet sports, basketball, and aerobics. If you’re an avid jogger, however, consider investing in good pair of running shoes for optimal arch support.
