One of the most exciting things I’ve done on my fitness journey was switching from traditional running shoes to barefoot style shoes. My Ninja/Parkour coach, @parkour_ninja975 suggested flat barefoot shoes, that they would help me with balance and make my jumps and landing more natural. I did some research and ordered the Xero Prio!
Wow, they were different and had immediate positive results on the balance beams. They felt so good, I didn’t want to wear anything else, I ordered another pair. I average 12,000 steps a day and for the first couple of days my feet were a tad sore, but it was a good sore….
My feet and lower calves are gaining strength and now I’m using my Zero’s in my 100-meter sprints. My daughter commented “Dad, it’s odd to see a 63-year-old man not wearing New Balance”, I replied “it’s odd to see a 63-year-old man doing Ninja Warrior and Parkour.
Movement is medicine.
