Stealth Workouts With Weighted Shoes


I wear Metatreks weighted shoes when I workout with T-Tapp.

Each shoe weighs around 2.5 pounds and really adds to the intensity of a workout. I also wear them out and about just like I would tennis shoes.

When I first started wearing them a few years ago, I worried that I would twist my knees so I caution anyone who wears them for the first time to be careful but over time my legs have got stronger and stronger.

Now, if I wear regular exercise shoes my legs fly around almost uncontrollably.

Hoedowns, Awesome Legs, Diva Derriere are a challenge with these boots on!

If you are unsure about buying shoes online, sizing is supposed to be close to that of Skechers. I tried on a pair of those and then used that sizing as a guide.

I also wear two pairs of socks to ensure a good, comfortable fit.

If I can’t manage a workout with my shoes on, it’s a sign to me I’ve lost conditioning and need to work a little harder to build it back up.

And I love the fact that I can get in a stealth workout as I go about my day.

Update 12/20/10: I have been experimenting with going barefoot more often including while doing T-Tapp. I still wear Metatreks in place of regular tennis shoes for daily use however. That works very well for me.

Are Metatreks still being sold. I have not been able to find them.

I don’t believe so. I haven’t been able to find them for several years.

I have found Nikken Cardiostrides weighted shoes. They are very expensive, though.
