Fitness Tip From Celeb Trainer Harley Pasternak: Always Wear Your Running Shoes

Harley Pasternak Is Always on the Run

I was lucky enough to talk to celeb trainer Harley Pasternak, who shared a tip that seems perfect for the weekend. Harley says that the singular, most important piece of fitness advice he can offer someone is, "get a great pair of running shoes." On top of that, Harley says that you should always be wearing them, always.

"Wearing a solid pair of running shoes helps put you in the mindset of being active," says Harley. "Every time you see me, everywhere in the world, I don’t care if I’m wearing dress pants or shorts I always wear my New Balance 993s. Because if I see a flight of stairs I want to be like, all right I’ll take the stairs no problem, because my feet are comfortable."

Listen ladies, I know that wearing your running shoes 24/7 is not always an option; I think most would agree that even the coolest pair of kicks are not the best way to set off your LBD. So while I might not be wearing them all the time, I do get what Harley is saying. At work I keep a pair of cross-trainers in my file cabinet so I can take a walk or head to the gym during my work day. And I know that many girls — including Kim Kardashian — wear their workout clothes out as a way to motivate themselves to exercise later in the day.

Even if you don't have a good pair of fitness shoes, think about investing in them. They're great to have on hand for talking a walk, going on a hike, or any other form of fitness that strikes your fancy!

I just realized my above post sounded seriously intense! I agree that wearing athletic clothes, etc. is a great way to stay in a good mindset. But if you're a serious runner, save your "running shoes" for running!

Haha - I thought EXACTLY the same thing as the above two posters. I get what he's saying - but he should have just said "sneakers" or something instead of specifically "running shoes."

THIS IS BAD ADVICE. YOU SHOULD ONLY WEAR THE SHOES YOU WEAR RUNNING WHILE RUNNING. ask any running store professional, or any running coach, or any running professional! Running shoes are important to running, and wearing them while not running wears them down much more quickly. Seriously, I thought everyone who ran knew this?
