Muscle cramps are caused by involuntary muscle contractions, and it's common to get them in your legs — but foot cramps are no different, says Jackie Sutera, DPM, a podiatrist in New York City. "Spasms and cramps in feet can come from overuse, doing a new exercise, or not having the proper footgear," she says.

Even though cramps seem to come out of nowhere, they are preventable, Dr. Sutera says. It can be helpful to stretch the arches of your feet before working out, and warm up by practicing some of the movements that you know you'll be doing during the class. And don't forget to stay hydrated. That said, if you frequently get foot cramps and can't tell what has caused it, that might be a red flag that you should see a doctor.
