Jump-start your fat-burning fitness with these awesome athletic shoes

When it comes to fitness, the right shoes can make - or break - your motivation and results. So we tried on a wide range of different athletic shoes to determine which ones are the best.

The winners are (drumroll, please):

  • If you're taking a dance exercise class, you need the right shoes. And for zipping across the floor smoothly and comfortably, the jazz-hands-up winners are: Zumba shoes such as the Zumba Flex Classic.
  • Let's get soulful with Sole shoes. "Comfort" doesn't do justice to just how soothing these shoes feel. Sink your heels into Sole shoes in styles such as the Sigh.
  • Bounce into Brooks running shoes to power up your workout. These form-fitting shoes help you fight fat with their made-for-running quality, such as Brooks Transcend.
