7 Exercises for Fitter Feet

Your feet need training and conditioning just like the rest of your body.

The muscles in the feet make up 25 percent of the body's total muscles. They can take a beating if you participate in sports, and just like any other structure in the body, dysfunction in our feet can lead to serious issues like knee pain and lower back aches. If you ignore your feet, it's like eliminating any other major category of exercises from your workout routine. Foot strength directly influences proper foot mechanics, gait patterns, ankle stabilization and whole-body balance.

After only a few weeks of strengthening your feet muscles with the following exercises, you will notice improved movement on the tennis court. Plus, if you've been experiencing aches in your knees or tightness in your calves and glutes, you may also notice the pains fading away.
