What’s the Scoop on Tone Up Shoes, Do They Really Work?

I was asked by a friend about how good tone up shoes were, so I have looked into it a little and here is what I have found;

The whole theory behind these shoes (no matter the brand) is they create a unbalanced walking experience causing you to engage more muscles.  Now initially this is true and I am pretty sure (and I don’t even have to try wear them first) that you will start to feel muscular pains in the butt, calves and glutes.

But the way they are selling and marketing them, I find not so honest.

Lets look at the fit person, already at their target weight, I believe these shoes will give them results, but for how long will they see results I don’t know.  Remember muscles need to keep on being challenged to change.  So after a year will your muscles have gotten use to them and they are no longer a challenge, I am thinking the challenge for your muscles will have gone.

Now lets look at the person with that extra baggage.  I think these shoes will not give you the glamorous results that the advertisements show.  You will also feel the muscle changes and will be challenged but the slight tone and changes that you’ll have in muscle will be buried underneath….. dan dan dan…. the extra fat that’s rolling around! :-(

Remember you can’t spot reduce; you can’t target a body-part and hope to reduce the fat in that particular area. You need to workout the whole body and then body-fat will gradually be reduced in the area that you also wish.

OUTCOME: I believe these tone up shoes are yet another fad that tell us “hey you can get the results but you don’t have to work hard for them!”  Remember there are no short cuts to total body fitness.  I truly believe these kind of shoes are not worth the big price tag. Why not use your money wisely and take a few sessions with a personal trainer, were you will learn proper ways to lose body fat and get real results.

Have have given you my opinion on these but here is also a video that you can watch.
