Why isn’t Barefoot Benny barefoot?


Many thanks to Social Workout for bring Barefoot Benny’s “Barefoot Bootcamp” to our attention.  And kudos to your strong-heeled reporter for tackling the Central Park workout literally barefoot, with not even a Vibram between her and the pebbly pavement. We were so intrigued by the post that we checked out Barefoot Benny’s website where we found a total head-scratcher. Almost all of Barefoot Benny’s photos are of people working out in clunky running shoes. Especially strange is the whole section about “barefooting” which has three pictures of sneaker-clad people. And that, folks, is our fitness fact-checking of the day. Barefoot Benny, time to consider a new moniker or new photos.
