This lady is in need of a new pair of kicks! The shoes I wear for my workouts I also wear at work when training my clients & they’re just gettin’ run down. I need a good cross-training shoe that allows me to handle the different movements & drills I do in my P90X3, T25, Insanity & soon-to-be the 21DayFix training. No running shoe recommendations please, because the extra cushioning in running shoes don’t allow me to land properly & can cause knee & ankle injuries from instability. Function over fashion is my #1 objective, although I do love fun pops of color!
Shoes have become very activity specific and for good reason. The biggest problem with recommending a shoe is that the client’s current footwear is vitally important to do so. You should take your most recent pair of shoes to a fitness professional that can evaluate how you are moving and how this is wearing the soles of the shoes. There are some shoe stores that train their staff to do this as well, but make sure that you verify anything you are told by doing a bit of research on the internet.
There are many other things that need to be evaluated for you to pick the best shoe for you as well. But it cannot be done here. And you need someone that knows what they are doing as well. If you ever come to the Big Island of Hawaii, I would be happy to assist you. In the meantime, look for someone in your area that has the necessary skills.
