High Heel Workout

Class Act: High-Heel Workout?

Looks like there is a new fitness class on the scene. The focus is to get you in shape, but not in the traditional meaning. Rather than focusing on burning calories, the goal of the high-heel workout it to get you in shape to walk comfortably in heels. The first part of the class is done wearing your fave heels while performing simple dance moves and a few other exercises. After changing into sneakers, the second half of the class includes classic leg toning moves like squats and lunges along with core-strengthening moves to aid posture. Those three-inch stilettos can really throw off your balance. Here is a video snippet of the class.

I am the kind of gal that reserves high heels for special occasions, since they do funky things to my feet like create corns and cause some serious neck and back pain. I think this class is a little silly, but I fear I may be in the minority here, as many of you wear heels three times a week. What do you think about a high-heel workout? Is it silly or practical?
