MBT Trainer - A Small Gym for Your Feet

MBT trainer are a new walking shoe to hit the scene They have been getting a lot of press, as of late, so I thought I would take a closer look at these trainers to see what they offer.

The concept for MBT trainers stems from studying the walking habits of the Masai tribe in Africa. The Masai are a semi-nomadic tribe whose lives center around tending to their cattle and hunting. A consequence of this is that they walk very long distances on a daily basis. It was discovered that as they walk on the natural uneven terrain they develop toned and lean leg muscles, have a perfect posture, and suffer a minimal amount of back and joint problems. The MBT trainers actually imitate the terrain the Masai walk on and turn the hard and uneven surfaces that we walk on everyday, into the soft and natural ground of the Masai. This causes the muscles to work harder and become the natural shock absorbers they were destined to be, in addition to protecting the back and joints.

The MBT trainers are a perfect partner for all of you that currently have a fitness walking program, or are thinking of beginning one. Walking obviously holds several benefits, but it still produces a lot of where and tear on the body. In fact, every step you take puts about 500 pounds of pressure on your feet. That's a lot of miles and a lot of pressure. Isn't it worth your while to get all the comfort and support you can?

The MBT trainers have so much to offer including the fact that you can burn more calories, have a better posture, and decreased back pain.
