Healthy Feet Tip #5 – Exercise Your Feet

We have cardio classes to exercise the heart. We have abs/core classes to exercise our midsections. We have weights classes to build strong arms and legs. We have Pilates classes to build flexibility and core strength. Have any of you ever attended a foot class to strengthen your feet?

Our feet are one of the most important areas of our body. The feet contain 26 bones, which are a quarter of the bones in the entire body. They also have 33 joints and more than 100 muscles, tendons and ligaments.  Now compare that to your leg which has only three bones.

The feet play a vital role in our ability to live life. They are what get us from point A to point B. They also help us ride bikes, walk, drive a car, swim, dance, etc.

Today’s tip for creating healthy feet is to exercise your feet on a daily basis.

The following video blogs will provide you with exercises to assist you on your way to building stronger and healthier feet. You don’t need to do all of these exercises in one day; pick 2-3 each day and then rotate through them during the week.
