NEW YORK, April 14 /PRNewswire/ -- Running is a great way to stay fit. Whether your goal is to shed a few extra pounds, complete a marathon, or maintain that figure you worked so hard to get this winter, now is the time jump start your spring training.
The first step to getting off the couch and out the door is the right pair of shoes. Lady Foot Locker (www.ladyfootlocker.com), a long-time advocate of the active lifestyle, not only offers a variety of products designed specifically for running but has also developed a program in which select stores have associates who are trained running experts.
According to Marta Haut, a Lady Foot Locker certified running expert, "Associates are educated in a variety of programs, including identifying the individual's running needs, anatomy of the foot, and finding the right fit." Marta further explains that "our running experts will measure her foot, assess her stride, and then make recommendations for the right shoe based on fit and function."
A few helpful tips to consider when selecting your next pair of running shoes:
Whatever type of foot you have, always remember that you don't break in athletic shoes. If it doesn't feel good in the store, it certainly won't feel good while running.
