I love working out, and I never thought I would ever say that! And now that I have a good workout routine, that includes varied exercises, I am completely motivated. I am working with Skechers this year to show how important good footwear is for any kind of training, and that can be as simple as going for a walk (they have Go Walk range!). When I am in the gym for weights training, I like to keep as flat to the ground as I can; I feel more stable and I think my body is at it’s best position for anything requiring me to engage my whole body. For this kind of training, I wear Flex Appeal 2.0 that are a slip on. They have an outer fabric that is woven so it’s nice and flexible to move with my feet. I love the colour combination too, so as you can see in the gallery below from my training, (click on the images to change), I like to wear them when I’m out walk through town for work! The memory foam within is also air cooled, so your feet can remain at a steady temperature as you train. For more cardio based exercising, and by that I mean anything from a series of lunges to planking to rowing, I love Go Train that is designed to disperse energy across your foot (they call it Crosshatch on the outsole). I cannot tell you how light these are on your feet, you feel like you have cushions on all the while staying supported. I have a fallen arch on my left foot, so the built in arch support keeps me in the right spot. I also wear these on light runs on the treadmill.
You might have also seen that Skechers have a huge range of runners whatever your workout routine (sneakers/trainers!) and depending on what you need, and you can read about the Originals here which I wore in my first blog post! Keep an eye on my Instagram for more styles I’ll be wearing as I train in June!
