January 7, 2015 - Start the New Year Off On the Right Foot

For many of us, getting into shape is a common New Year's resolution. But isn't it funny how when we go to work out, we walk into the gym on our feet, but then end up exercising nearly every part of our bodies except them? Why wouldn't we also be just as concerned with the proper care and maintenance of our calves, ankles, toes and feet when we know that if they aren't working properly, none of the rest really matters?

 

There are ways to stretch and strengthen the lower extremities, but nothing is as all-encompassing, easy to use and plain inviting as the Foot Gym. It combines six stretches along with a heated or chilled massage feature, to allow you to speed up your recovery from injury or surgery, or help prevent either from happening in the first place.

 

Combining an angled foot pad with resistance band tubing, one can employ the device for toe curls and toe extensions, dorsiflexion stretches, Plantar Fascia stretch and effective calf stretches. Or, fill the removable roller ball with either cold or hot water and pamper yourself with a luxurious foot massage.

 

My soccer-playing daughter uses it to stretch her calves and improve her ankle strength, which has always been an issue. I recommend simply putting it under your desk at work, kicking off your shoes and letting your feet do their thing on it throughout the day. You'll be amazed at how much better your feet, toes and ankles feel in a short period of time because they've been “working out,” and getting massaged instead of just sitting there.

 

Whether you've had foot injuries or just want to prevent them, or even if you like the idea of rewarding your hard-working tooties with a roll over a massage ball while you work, you won't go wrong with this innovative product. For the New Year, it's time you let those feet have their own gym membership. Because if you take care of them, they're going to take care of you.
