People underestimate the importance and benefits of wearing a good pair of gym shoes for lifting or crossfit.
They provide support and cushioning to your feet and help stabilise your body.
If you wear just any shoes to the gym, maybe you should think twice.
Apart from suffering from delayed onset muscle soreness, have you ever walked away from exercise or a gym session with a pain in your knees, back or hips? A pain that is not related to being a newbie to the gym?
You should take a look at the shoes you are wearing whilst working out.
Think about it, your feet get put through their paces during any workout. They take a hammering from the treadmill, cross trainer, deadlifts and squats.
Bad footwear can cause damage to the muscle, bones, joints and tissue throughout the body. Long-term effects would mean your fitness goals may be put on hold whilst your body recovers from the damage.
