Fitness and Your Feet

The feet are one of the most overlooked body parts when it comes to exercise. As you exercise, pay attention to what your feet are telling you. Most people don't realize the tremendous pressure that is put on their feet while exercising. For example, a 150-pound jogger puts more than 150 tons of impact on his feet when running three miles. Improper foot care during exercise is a contributing factor to some of the more than 300 foot ailments, according to the American Podiatric Medical Association. The New York licensed podiatrists at Foot Care of New York stress the importance of foot care when exercising.
