Dr. Legs and Me
Since I’m a fan of sky high heels, I went by Shoegasm yesterday to check out the Catwalk Confidence Challenge event where Emily Splichal aka Dr. Legs was there to show us her popular Catwalk Confidence class which was “designed to help women gain strength, flexibility, comfort and confidence when they walk in high heel shoes, along with lean and defined legs”. I didn’t participate in the class but just watching it looked hard and intense already, no wonder Dr. Legs has an amazing body. She has perfect posture and the way she walked was full of confidence, definitely made me want to hit the gym haha.
In the Catwalk Confidence, Dr. Legs uses techniques from strength training and yoga to target muscles that are affected by overuse from high heels, strengthening the areas that can be broken down by constant heel-wearing. According to the press release, regular sessions of Catwalk Confidence correct poor posture and foot discomfort, allowing women to walk pain-free in heels. If this is true, I’d totally do the workout since I can’t really do high heels for a long period of time- has anyone tried?
