Earlier this week I had the pleasure of meeting Harold and Ana Kelley (Co-founders of King Kong Nation Fitness), who introduced me to their most recent product innovation, the 5 Star Boot.
If you haven't heard of it, the 5 Star Boot is a versatile polyester foot harness, that contains 5 metal clips on the top, bottom, back, and sides. To use the apparatus, the user straps the "boot" around their shoe and has the option of attaching one of the metal clips to a resistance band and/or cable machine, to perform a wide variety of leg, core, and glute exercises.
What I found to be most impressive, is that the 5 Star Boot gave me a more concentrated squeeze in my glutes and forced me to use more stabilizing leg muscles, than when I performed the same exercises with a velcro strap attached to my ankle. I also really liked that the 5 Star Boot didn't cause me any ankle irritation or pain, which traditionally tends to happen with basic velcro straps.
If you'd like to purchase or simply find out more about the 5 Star Boot, then click on the following link (5StarBoot) and you'll be directed to the King Kong Nation Fitness homepage. Also, please feel free to use the special promo code (Monika2015) that Harold and Ana gave me, which will take $5 off of your purchase.
