There are many things you can do at the gym but there’s one impermissible thing that you shouldn’t be doing when working out — wearing the wrong shoes.

If you’re a cardio-freak, lightweight trainers are the best but make sure that you choose something with a good textured sole for better grip if you prefer running in the outdoors.
