Find the right tennis shoe for you.

Tennis Shoe Breakdown: The Right Shoes For Your Work Out

Everyone knows how important it is to have the right pair of shoes. For ladies, it’s often finding a comfortable pair that can be worn all night and will go with multiple outfits. For men, it’s about finding shoes that they can wear from casual situations to dressy events without getting a judgmental stare down. Fitness is no exception. The shoes you choose are imperative to your work out. Let’s break down the essence of each tennis shoe…

RUNNING

Running is most often moving forward in one direction, so running shoes are designed to do just that. These are not the shoes you want to wear in a pick-up basketball game or another work out that could require more support.

TRAIL

These shoes are purchased by those who typically enjoy outdoor work outs; hiking, walking or running on trails that require a shoe with some traction.

CROSS TRAINING

This will be the most cost-effective tennis shoe you can purchase. These are designed for those with work out routines that change direction, involve different sports, and other various exercises. DISCLAIMER: Cross trainers do not have the right support for running though, so make sure to purchase a running tennis shoe if that is your main work out.

Hopefully now you feel more informed and can make the right tennis shoe work for you and your workout!

Work Out Schedule: My New Year’s 2014 Resolution

Like many of you, I want this to be a new year, for new beginnings, and with new goals. It’s time to turn over a new leaf. I’m sick of thinking these things and not actually doing them! We are aware that most people searching for “work out” content are more like me (someone with good intentions but an affinity for fried food and couch sitting), which makes a work out schedule hard to stick with. So, allow me to introduce a New Year’s resolution option that doesn’t require you biting off more than you can chew!

At the beginning of every month, I will start a new 30-day work out schedule, and I will post it here. In the past I’ve made resolutions like “I’ll go for a run twice a week” and much to my dismay, even this became hard to follow. What’s great about these 30-day work out schedules is how simple they are to follow. Print out the sheets, find 5 minutes in your day to complete your work out, and then cross out the day. I know that sounds too easy, but that’s just what it is. Together, we can do this. Ready? Print yours and let’s start off 2014 with a work out schedule we can both commit to.
