Our newest FitPerez correspondent and top Australian pro tennis player, Anastasia Rodionovaz, is here to answer any and all tennis training-related questions!

The world-class female player and current Australian No. 1 in doubles also has the help of her trusted personal trainer, Jason Stacy, to give you the BEST advice possible!

This week, a FitPerez reader is curious if fitness footwear matters for effective workouts, asking:

Do you wear actual running shoes for your cardio, running and etc. or stick to tennis shoes? Does it even matter?

According to Anastasia & her fitness trainer Jason:

I do wear running shoes for "cardio". For workouts I have running shoes and/or my vibram five fingers. As far as if it matters, I'd say it's best to find a shoe that feels comfortable for you…for workouts I'd prefer a minimalist shoe (flat and low).

With all the conflicting opinions on what type of shoe is best, I'd recommend finding one that feels right. Ensure its not too narrow and If its comfortable and not causing you pain/dysfunction-go for it!!!!
