I am always going for walks, and I know that I am doing good by my health by doing so, but wouldnt be nice to get a extra workout at the same time? I know I would love to be able to tone up my thighs while walking, even while going to the store or other daily activities. Sure there are tons of brands out there that give you options in tennis shoes but what about those who like to wear sandals and flip flops? I thought that the only had options we had were in tennis shoe styles, until I found Trim Treads. These are perfect for those like me, who love their flip flops! Who knew, that I could wear my flip flops and get a work out at the same time. And all you really have to do is wear Trim Treads for 30 minutes a day while walking, and you are on your way to toning those thighs and tightening your buns!!!
Trim Treads are the most affordable, efficient and effective fitness shoes available on the market today! By simply wearing your Trim Treads 30 minutes a day as you go about your normal routine you will see and feel the results.
How They Work
When you wear Trim Treads, the motion when walking is similar to that of balancing in combination with using a Stairmaster; while staying balanced in these shoes, you can concentrate on different muscles that are not normally used when wearing every day fitness shoes. Trim Treads are an affordable way to work out and are cut so dramatically so that your body gets more activity in less time. The shoes provide people with an effortless and inexpensive way to trim their bodies when they don’t have the time or money to devote to the gym.
The deep vein pumping action that occurs with every step taken can significantly reduce the onset of varicose and spider veins. Wearing the shoes can also diminish existing cellulite and prevent it from developing, and can help ease lower back pain, swelling in the arms and legs, and the discomfort of plantar fasciitis.
The steps are simple; if you wear the shoes for 30 minutes a day while standing and going about everyday activities you can lift your buns, tone your legs and strengthen your core. The shoes work by encouraging balance on the flat part of the shoe under the ball of your foot, which engages the muscles in your legs, buttocks and core. Trim Treads shape your body and burn more calories than ordinary workout shoes. Trim Treads offer more benefits in less time and at a much more affordable price.
Walk as you normally would, allowing your knees and ankles to move and flex freely. Focus on balancing on the flat part of the shoe under the ball of your foot without allowing the heel or toe of the shoe to touch the ground. However, feel free to mix it up a bit. To work your calves, hamstrings, thighs and buttocks more aggressively, you may take exaggerated heel to toe steps, rocking from all the way back on your heel and then forward onto your toe.
When standing there are a variety of different things you can do to target and engage different muscles. First, you can focus on balancing on the flat part of the shoe under the ball of your foot. Stand with your feet parallel to the ground, just as if you were barefooted. While standing, your body has a tendency to want to rock back or roll forward. The effort exerted to maintain balance on the platform under the ball of your foot allows you to engage and tone muscles in your core and lower extremities that are not ordinarily used. Benefits of this exercise include greatly improved balance and inner core strength, better posture, as well as the muscle toning benefits of wearing the shoes. Advanced users may try standing and balancing on one foot at a time for short intervals to increase and enhance these same benefits.
Heel & Toe Lifts:
To target the muscles on the back side of your legs, from your ankles to your buttocks, try beginning with the heel of the shoe resting on the ground, then repeatedly lifting up to the point of balance on the flat part of the shoe, then back down. By repeating this action, you will immediately feel the targeted muscles working! To target the front part of your legs roll forward onto the angled flat part of the shoe beneath your toes and then back to the point of balance under the flat part of the shoe. You can also feel this exercise working in your buttocks.
