MBT shoes review

There are lots of different shoes out there in the world but MBT’s are the first I have come across to have an instruction manual with them.  MBT stands for “Masai barefoot technology” and the shoes are designed to stimulate walking in sand.  The shoes have a curved sole creating this sensation.  MBT’s are not designed for running but when walking increase joint support and helps people to utilise their core to get a better core workout.  MBT’s help to tone and strengthen the legs around the bum and hamstring region.  MBT’s are often reccomended by doctors to those who suffer from collapsing arches and other ankle and sole problems.  As a personal trainer I have seen many customers come in to our personal training studio wearing these shoes as reccomended to them by their doctor.  These shoes aren’t really practical for working out with, as you shouldn’t run in them and for weights you don’t get a good foot support which you would need for example when doing a shoulder press as you don’t want to be rocking with weights above your head. I like MBT’s and think they are alot of fun but whether or not they will stand the test of time we will see.  They are quite expensive priced around £150 but for good trainers that offer this unique form of training this price isnt as far fetched as it initially may seem.

Isaac's story

Because I am blind, I cannot learn new exercises by watching my trainer nor can he show me what I am doing wrong – he has to either verbalise the technique or demonstrate by physically making adjustments to my body shape.

For this reason, I need to work with a trainer who can effectively explain an exercise and describe the postures and workings of the body that correspond to the proper execution of that exercise. I have found such a trainer in Rob, and as a result, working out with him is both productive and enjoyable.

Through careful instruction and my conscious effort to comprehend and implement what I’m being told, I gain a greater understanding of the mechanics and purpose of an exercise than perhaps I would through visual imitation.

The team's knowledge, creativity and flexibility make training at MyFitness Studio both a worthwhile pleasure and an education.

I decided to invest in some personal training sessions six months before my wedding in July 2011 and have been training with Rob and the team ever since.

As is the case for so many brides (and grooms) to be, I was a bit nervous about the pressure of looking good on my wedding day. My objective was simply to lose some weight and tone up so I could feel confident and happy with how I would look in our wedding pictures.

At my first session Rob identified key areas for us to work on including my arms, thighs and bottom and how specifically to make all of those areas slimmer and tighter. I originally trained only twice a week and saw huge changes in my body after just a couple of months. My arms were noticeably toned and my bottom smaller and tighter.

The team gave me great nutritional information to ensure my diet supported my training and weight loss goals. By my wedding in July I had not only hit my weight loss target, I had toned up dramatically. I felt in the best shape of my life and as a result I felt confident and happy in my dress. That on-the-day confidence really shows through in our pictures and I’m so thankful to MyFitness Studio for helping me achieve this.

Our Fit for the Occasion sessions were the right mix of fun and hard work and I enjoyed them so much that I couldn’t give up training after the wedding.
