Our feet kinda do a lot for us. They keep us upright and help us ambulate. We don’t often think about just how much we require of them, but if you’ve ever had a foot injury then it becomes apparent pretty quickly. This is why it’s important to take care of them.
We get it. You have your sport that you love and that’s all you want to do. But what if we told you there was a way to reduce injuries, build endurance, speed, and strength, increase motivation, and keep you doing that thing you love long term? The secret? Cross training. Once you understand the many benefits of cross training, you’ll be eager to find your new second-favorite sport.

When you put numbers to the work our feet do for us, you can really see how much we use them. We use our feet for just about everything we do, so it’s important to take care of them.
