Call it a footwear fiasco. If you thought walking in high heels hurt, try exercising in them. In tonight's Style File, we found a new workout for women that's all about putting your best foot forward.
WSVN--Models do it on the cat walk.
Celebrities do it on the red carpet.
And the rockets do it on stage.
Now you can master the art of strutting your stuff in high heels and get a great workout in the process.
Michelle Fernandez: "You can always wear high heels year-round if you are going out to a club, if you are going out to dinner our weather permits that you be sporting high heels year round."
At Crunch Fitness on South Beach the stiletto strength class is helping women walk tall.
The class, which started in New York and L.A., was such a hit they added it the gym's Miami roster.
Michelle Fernandez: "When you are walking on high heels, the higher the heels, the more you are performing the more it requires an attitude, a posture an elegance and that's what we're here to show you what to do."
The fitness folks say this 45-minute workout routine improves your posture
Adds flexibility and makes your legs feel super sexy. And believe it or not -- you will break a sweat.
Michelle Fernandez: "It's a lot of fun we dance in the warm-up, we dance in the cooldown and it's about feeling sexy."
Crunch regular Gigi Cortez loves the workout and confidence this class gives her.
Gigi Cortez: "Not only for just posture and strength in work muscles, it's only it actually helps you to learn how to walk in heels."
So if you wanna spice up your exercise routine and have a little fun, check out the class that guarantees to make your gams feel like gems.
Michelle Fernandez: "It's definately different, guarantee nowhere else will you be able to walk into a studio in high heels and squat and do balance exercises that's for sure, I can say that confidently."
The class is taught at Crunch every Friday afternoon and is for members only. Their monthly fitness packages start at about $65.
