All the major shoe manufacturers have come out with some type of minimalist shoes. Unfortunately you will still see posts about the various shoes and the "corrections" they make, most of the problems actually being caused by the shoes or faulty running mechanics.


It is called WORK-ing out for a reason.

I said getting fit was simple, I did not say it was easy.

Cardio burns calories, strength work burns fat.

Eat well to lose weight, exercise to get fit

You can not build a six pack using twelve packs


Often when we seek a magic bullet for fitness we end up shooting ourselves in the foot.

I am posting this for the information it contains and not advocating my personal position.

The following essay was written by an orthopedic surgeon several years ago. It was rejected by Runner's World and Running Times but was published by the German ultra-marathon magazine Spiridon.motioncenterstl.com/pdf/Athletic%20Footwea
r%20and%20Running%20Injuries%20-%20Fro
ncioni%202007.pdf


Another relevant website also run by a physician is www.stevenrobbinsmd.com/
