Is Your Workout Gear Safe? Get The Facts
Helmets are also mandated or recommended for the following spots - baseball, boxing, football, hockey, lacrosse, skiing, skateboarding, wrestling, softball and rugby. If inline skating is right up your alley, make sure you don wrist guards, knee pads, elbow pads, as well as a helmet. The proper gear applies from head to toe. Selecting the proper shoes is also an integral part of protecting the feet. All sneakers are not created equal. If you plan on running or jogging, you should invest in athletic shoes made specifically for that purpose. However, if you're participating in a cardiovascular workout like Zumba or Step, opt for a decent pair of cross trainers. Even if walking is your activity of choice, there are shoes specifically made for walking regimens.
