Fitness Tip: A New Walking Shoe That Tones Muscles And Burn More Calories

Losing weight is probably a top priority for most of us. It has been a constant battle for many, experimenting with several different techniques. Many different ideas have been tested including joining a local L.A. Fitness, several diet books, ordering those late night commercial plans, and numerous over-the-counter medications. I have had many success stories, but none of these strategies lasted very long. The one thing I am a true believer in is exercise. Finding the time is the hard part, since I have a full time job and two kids to worry about, which makes it impossible for me to get all the workout time I need. I am finally pleased that I have found a solution that helps me shed a few extra pounds and stay healthy. It is a shoe called ShapeUps.

It is a range of footwear that has a lot of benefits for the body, one in particular is that they help burn more calories when walking. But wait, you say, how can a shoe help me burn more calories?

The secret to this footwear is found in the sole design. Skechers Shape Ups have a multi-layered pivot sole that mimics treading on the sand. If you think about how it's more challenging to walk in the sand, then you get a rough idea of how these shoes work. What happens when you wear them as you walk is that more muscles are being worked, therefore increasing the amount of calories being burned.

The best feature of this footwear is the ease of use. Simply lace them up and get going. A perfect time save which is especially important for me since I have a full-time job and two kids to tend to. All you have to do is put on the Skechers Shape Ups and walk. Simple, huh? I hope you don't think that these shoes give you a license to devour any food in sight. Buying a pair of these shoes and putting them on does not entitle you to super size your meal at a fast food restaurant nor take an extra large helping of cheesecake.

Another nice aspect of this footwear is the wide variety available. They have sneakers and sandals. They have a solution for any type of occasion.

So if you are looking for an easy way to burn more calories, tone legs, and feel better, and don't have the time to spare for working out, give Skechers Shape Ups a try.
