The nation is currently in the grip of a health kick, the world seems to go in cycles and at the moment there is a massive kick on to get everyone back in shape. Amazingly despite all the new technology that has been invented and placed into the many gyms that have sprung up around the country, one of the best forms of exercise to help people lose weight and get back into shape is running. However, what most people don’t realise is that you can actually do yourself more harm than good simply by wearing the wrong running shoes.

If you have spent any time investigating the vast array of running shoes that is on the market at the moment you will notice that they all have supper absorbent soles which help to protect the joints whilst you are performing the exercise. Companies like Nike, Adidas and Fila have spent a lot of time and money investing in the production of the perfect sole for their running shoes, with the ultimate aim of protecting your body and assisting you towards obtaining your running goals.

Running shoes have been specially designed with extra padding to protect you. But how does it work? Well think about what actually happens when you run. All you’re body’s weight is transfer down through your body through a singular point, you leg. With a firm sole to your shoes, your joints will compress and you will take extra strain on your knee and ankle joint. If you are running for any period of time in a shoe that is unsuitable for running, for instance the classic range of trainers, it is more than likely that you will experience a severe amount of discomfort.
With correctly fitted running shoes, the strain and stress placed on your knee and ankle joint should be significantly less and because of this you will be able to perform exercise for a much longer period of time. Not only that you will also probably experience less discomfort the following day, which is normally when the body repairs and replenishes any muscle fibres that might have been torn or ripped during exercise.

Exercise is good, but it can quickly be turned into a bad thing if you don’t use the correct exercise equipment. You could certainly end up doing yourself more harm than good. So make a wise decision in 2010 and make sure you exercise in the correct footwear. It needn’t cost a fortune, but it could save you years of pain and agony.
