Wearing toning shoes and shape up shoes, like the $110-$125 Skechers Shape-Ups, may be the hottest trend in health and fitness these days, but the question still remains: Do Skechers Shape-Up shoes really work? Commonly misspelled as Sketchers Shape Ups, with a “T” mistakenly inserted, Skechers Shape Ups shoes for men, women and kids are very popular walking shoes.

Before I decided to buy a pair of women’s Shape-Ups a year ago, as part of my home workout exercise and diet program, I read many positive and negative reviews about the claimed benefits of walking and toning in Skechers fitness shoes. Being an “I’ll believe it when I see it” skeptical type person, promotional videos and commercial ads claiming Skechers Shape Up trainers can “turn your workout into a part of your everyday life, without ever going to the gym”; and another clip featuring former pro football quarterback Joe Montana saying “Get in shape without setting foot in a gym!”, left me thinking Yeah Right, Prove It.

Should you join a gym or workout at home if you want to lose weight? Do you really need to join a gym or not? Can women lose weight without a gym membership or should you buy gym equipment and exercise at home? Which is better, yoga or aerobics for weight loss? Who says you can’t exercise without equipment?

These are just some of the questions that are often debated and discussed amongst friends and family, so it seems fitting that we begin the new year with discussions about losing weight, exercise routines, diet plans and getting fit. Personally, I hate the word “diet” in regards to wanting to lose weight and starting an exercise routine to help us get in shape and living a healthy lifestyle. For us, it’s not about being thin according to society’s standards; it’s about being as healthy as we can be in mind, body and spirit.

Several years ago, I believed that without a gym membership there was no way I could lose weight and get physically fit. I was wrong. You can lose weight by eating healthy and exercising at home, and you don’t have to buy gym equipment if you don’t want to or can’t afford to. I wish I understood that years ago before I bought and paid for a Bally’s gym membership that ultimately cost me thousands of dollars that would have been better spent elsewhere.
