In this era of fitness and a wealth of information online, it is important to make sure that you are not being misled into issues that can impact your health. One such fitness fact that needs to be understood is the right kind of shoe to wear to train at the gym. Some people who are into various kinds of fitness activities understand that each activity might need a different kind of footwear. However, there are others who think that a shoe is a shoe! This ignorance can mean injuring your knee or your back and having to abandon your fitness goals altogether. Let's make sure this doesn't happen to you!

Apart from the fashion and the labels, there is so much more to look at while buying appropriate shoes for working out. And just to break the bubble, workout shoes are not the same as running shoes. The design of these shoes is very different and the features that they provide are also quite different.
