Research has shown that excess weight can raise the risk of not-so-fun conditions like tendon inflammation and osteoarthritis. “Simply by being overweight, you can put your feet at risk,” says podiatrist Phil Vasyli. “Just as intensifying activity can increase force on your feet, so can adding a large amount of weight, which puts additional stress on the foot with every step you take.”

 
If you’re overweight, but concerned about getting moving, try starting with low-impact activities like swimming, water aerobics, the rowing machine, or yoga. When beginning or intensifying a fitness routine, start from the ground up and make sure your sneakers offer enough support to keep your feet healthy as you “jumping jack” your way towards your wellness goals, says Vasyli.
