The benefits of training and gym workouts can be limited without the proper footwear. A bad pair of gym shoes will leave you sweaty, uncomfortable, and ready to call it quits way too early. On the other hand, a quality pair of trainers will protect your feet and keep you irritation-free for lengthy sessions.
The ASICS Gel-Intensity 2 is a great place to start if you're looking to get the most out of your sessions. Originally priced at $110, these trainers have been reduced to $80 over at Eastbay. They're equipped with a Clutch Collar System which provides extra rear-foot support. Meanwhile, the GEL Cushioning system is placed at both the rear and forefoot, ensuring that shock from impact is minimal. The SoLyte midsole and Trusstic System help to keep the shoe lightweight without compromising its structure.
