FOOT FOCUS

FOOT FOCUS

We like to focus on the feet because they are the foundation. Every day we are on our feet standing, walking or running. There is no athletic or functional movement that doesn’t involve our feet. Their health and movement affect our calves, hips, spine and posture with every step we take. By including the feet in your regimen, you will notice huge and faster improvements.
