Working out looks pretty easy and getting started actually is, but you don’t want to end up getting hurt before you really have a chance to get started.
But, I have to warn you, there is one thing that you need to think about before you get started…..SNEAKERS
There are different kinds of sneakers for a reason.
There are sneakers for running, for basketball, for walking, for cross training, and the list goes on and on. There is a difference is how they are made and what kind of cushion and support are inside. So, it pays to take the time to think about what kind of working out you are going to do and think it through.
Let’s face it, you don’t want to get hurt, waste money, or risk being sidelined because you haven’t done your homework.
Here are some tips to keep you injury free and well on your way to a fit lifestyle with a very important tool, the right sneakers.
Here are 4 Tips To Help You Find The Right Sneakers So You Can Avoid An Injury
1. Take the time to think about what kind of activities you are going to be doing. If you are going to run you are going to need running sneakers. If you are going to be playing tennis, think about tennis sneakers or some cross training sneakers.
2. Think specialty. There are running stores for people who run, who specialize in understanding what runners need and who know what to look for. There is nothing worse than spending a bunch of money on sneakers only to find out that what you bought won’t work. Go to the experts, they know what you need and they specialize in helping you get the right results.
3. One size doesn’t fit all, try before you buy. When you go to the store be prepared to try on different options and then make sure that you like the way they feel. If it doesn’t feel good, leave it in the store.
4. Go to a store where you feel comfortable, a place where the staff is knowledgeable and they can answer your questions. You want someone who understands what you need, someone who is patient, and someone who will take good care of you. The education alone will be well worth what you pay. Ask how flexible they are, if you buy a sneaker and it doesn’t work for you. Find out the policies and procedures of the store, to make sure you have peace of mind. If the stores policies don’t sit well, go somewhere else.
Finding the right sneakers is the first important step on this journey. Take it seriously to guard yourself against unnecessary injuries.
