Run by former Professional Soccer Player, Amanda Da Costa, our Barefoot Bootcamp incorporates exercises mirroring those of professional athletes to get you fit in a fun way. Take your shoes off for an all new experience; strengthen your joints, move in the way your body was meant to, and recruit different muscle groups as you bare it all! Sessions will consist of explosive movements, balance, agility, and a little bit of yoga for your mental space.
WHY BARE? Did you know that wearing shoes all day, every day, allows our feet to slack off—and they eventually grow weak over time!? "When you’re wearing shoes, the muscles and connective tissues don’t have to work very hard to stabilize your body," states Gennady Kolodenker, D.P.M., a podiatrist with Hoag Orthopedic Institute in California. Your feet are designed to be the foundation for your ENTIRE body! As your feet become weaker from wearing “shoe coffins” constantly, you are essentially subjecting yourself to future harm to your ankles, knees, back…your whole body chain will be compromised. Not to mention, switching it up once and a while and going barefoot recruits different muscles that you don’t usually have to use when you’re laced up, giving you a total body benefit and added joint support.
