Skechers has just launched their new product, Skechers Shape Ups. This is not just an ordinary walking shoes that you think it is. With Skechers Shape Ups, it aims to promote weight loss, tone muscles, improve your posture and gets you in shape without even going to the gym at all.
Believe it or not, we burn more calories and get a greater amount of exercise when we walk bare footed. This is also the reason why you would find it harder to walk on wet sand, especially when the tide comes along your feet than to walk normally. Walking bare footed is like walking on wet sand, you will feel your heel sink into the ground before your foot rolls forward.
Unfortunately, we normally walk on hard surface, this causes our feet to not work the way it is intended to be. What happens now is that our heel and forefoot needs to be supported when it strikes the hard ground.
You might ask, so what? What’s the point in all these?
Well, the thing is, because our feet doesn’t work on how it is supposed to be, our bodies are now not required to work that much to give us the ability to move freely.
This is where Skechers Shape Ups comes in. With the Skechers Shape Ups, it optimizes the exercise in stimulating the walking in barefoot. One thing special with this shoe is the soft sole of the shoe. It was designed to compress, and recreate the effect of walking on soft sand within the shoe rather than on the ground. As you step, your heel sinks into the soft cushioned sole and then rolls forward on to your forefoot, before finally pushing of with your toes to take another step.
Skechers Shape Ups supports our muscle further up to our body and also enhance the benefits of walking. Which means that you will be able to strengthen the leg, buttock, back and abdominal muscles that are not normally used in your every day activity.
Skechers Shape Ups doesn’t only gives people with a busy lifestyle an essential workout while walking, the shoes look good too. It’s an all in one investment, and is out in the market with a reasonable price.
Being fashionable and losing weight has never been easy, and I don’t even need to attend the gym with a boring session with my personal trainer, too!
