This morning as I was at my gym, waiting for my Body Pump class to start, I snapped a photo of my shoes and then got to thinking about them.
I spent a lot of thought, time (and let’s be real here) money on my running shoes. I got a gait analysis done and was fitted for the best shoes for my body. But for my cross training, I usually just wear a really old pair of sneakers that are so beat up, they look like they’ve been through the ringer, more than once. And today I got to thinking, why do I put so much effort into my running shoes and hardly a thought at all into my cross training shoes. After all, lifting weights, squatting and lunging all require support from your feet. So, throwing on the oldest, most worn pair of shoes from the back of my closet probably isn’t doing me any favors.
So, since I know literally nothing about cross training shoes, I want to hear from you. Do you wear a different pair of shoes for cross training? What are they? What do you look for in cross trainers? Educate me!
Also, don’t forget, my Pocket Fuel Naturals giveaway is going on until Thursday!
