<strong>The</strong> start of a new year inevitably<br />

motivates many people to start or<br />

restart their fitness journeys. Along<br />

with the expected sore muscles that<br />

accompany a new workout program,<br />

if you’re experiencing foot, ankle, hip<br />

or joint pain, the problem may not be<br />

with your workout. It might be your<br />

shoes. Choosing the right shoes for<br />

your type of workout is just as essential<br />

as any other equipment. <strong>The</strong>re are<br />

a variety to choose from, and one<br />

pair of shoes that is perfect for one<br />

workout may not be ideal or could<br />

even be harmful for another. Below<br />

is a look at different workouts and<br />

what to look for in the perfect shoe<br />

for each.<br />

As a general rule, when shopping<br />

for shoes, there should be a little wiggle<br />

room in the toe area. Your heels<br />

should feel secure in the shoes, not<br />

able to move around or slip out. <strong>The</strong><br />

sole should be nonskid, giving you<br />

traction to be able to change directions<br />

easily. Your feet swell throughout<br />

the day, so shop for shoes toward<br />

end of the day when your feet are at<br />

their largest. Try on several different<br />

pairs of shoes, and walk, jog or jump<br />

around in the store to get a feel for<br />

how they will perform. Just because<br />

a pair of shoes is expensive or a designer<br />

brand doesn’t mean they will<br />

be right for your feet.<br />

Running is one of the most common<br />

exercises. It provides a great cardiovascular<br />

workout and is something<br />

almost anyone can do, from beginner<br />

walkers to experienced marathoners.<br />

Running shoes are made<br />

for high-impact, forward movement.<br />

Look for shoes with comfortable arch<br />

support and a lot of cushion, which<br />

will absorb the impact of your foot<br />

repeatedly striking the ground and<br />

protect your joints to prevent injuries.<br />

All shoes will break down over time<br />

and become less effective. If you are<br />

experiencing foot pain or shin splints,<br />

it’s probably time to replace your running<br />

shoes.<br />

For studio fitness classes like Zumba<br />

or aerobics, look for shoes that have<br />

a flexible sole; are nonskid and shock<br />

absorbent; and offer lateral support<br />

for a lot of quick, sideways movements.<br />

While many people will use a<br />

running shoe for these indoor classes,<br />

the extra cushion on a running shoe<br />

can be very unstable for lateral movements<br />

and lead to injury. Training<br />

shoes are often a good fit for these<br />

types of workouts.<br />

Strength training and weightlifting<br />

don’t require as much movement as<br />

other activities, but your shoes need<br />

to provide stability, especially when<br />

lifting heavy weights. <strong>The</strong> cushion of<br />

a running shoe will make you unstable<br />

if trying to do heavy squats or dead<br />

lifts. Lifting shoes should have little to<br />

no compression, a firm heel support,<br />

and a higher heel-to-toe drop than<br />

training or running shoes. Many lifting<br />

shoes also have a mid-foot strap<br />

to secure your foot into place inside<br />

the shoe. When lifting heavy weights,<br />

it’s important that your foot not slip<br />

around in your shoe, so look for a<br />

snug fit.<br />

Cross-training or workouts that incorporate<br />

a variety of movements,<br />

such as CrossFit or HIIT classes that<br />

often combine weightlifting with highintensity<br />

functional movements, require<br />

shoes that can go from lifting to<br />

box jumps while maintaining the right<br />

support. Cross-training or training<br />

shoes are hybrid shoes that are made<br />

for a variety of movements. <strong>The</strong>y often<br />

have some cushioning, but not so<br />

much as to deter from weightlifting<br />

while providing stability and support<br />

for lateral and functional movements.<br />

<strong>The</strong>se are the best all-around shoes<br />

HOW TO ...<br />

www.SouthwestOrlandoBulletin.com x January 19 — February 1, 2023 x 5<br />

Choose the Correct<br />

Shoes for Your Workout<br />

Start the Year on the Right Foot<br />

by Lauren Salinero<br />

Wearing the right shoes for your workout<br />

is just as important as using the correct<br />

equipment.<br />

for different activities, but not specialized<br />

enough to be perfect for any one<br />

movement. If you are only doing running<br />

or lifting, it’s better to choose a<br />

pair of shoes that is made specifically<br />

for that movement. However, if you’re<br />

incorporating a variety of movements<br />

in your workout, a training shoe may<br />

be the best fit for you.<br />

Sports played on a court, such as<br />

basketball, tennis, pickleball and volleyball,<br />

require shoes that provide a<br />

lot of traction for quick lateral movements.<br />

Basketball shoes, in particular,<br />

come in a variety of styles that<br />

you should choose depending on the<br />

amount of stability you require. Hightop<br />

shoes wrap around the ankle, offering<br />

the most support. <strong>The</strong>y tend to<br />

be heavier than mid-tops or low-tops,<br />

but are more likely to prevent sprains<br />

or other injuries. Mid-tops come up to<br />

the ankle, giving some support but not<br />

as much as high-tops. <strong>The</strong>se are good<br />

all-around basketball shoes. Low-tops<br />

sit below the ankle, giving little to no<br />

ankle support. <strong>The</strong>se are for players<br />

who value speed over support.<br />

Many sports require specialty shoes<br />

that are designed specifically for that<br />

activity. Cycling shoes are either flatpedal<br />

shoes or clip-in shoes that connect<br />

directly to the pedal of your bike.<br />

Baseball and soccer shoes have studs<br />

or cleats on the bottom of the shoes<br />

to grip the ground while performing<br />

dynamic maneuvers.<br />

No matter which exercise you are<br />

performing, the most important element<br />

to finding the right shoe is fit<br />

and comfort. If the shoe isn’t comfortable<br />

when you try it on, it isn’t going<br />

to get any better. Everyone’s feet are<br />

different, including how each person<br />

walks and carries themselves. If possible,<br />

visit a specialized shoe store to<br />

determine the exact type of support<br />

needed for your feet. ª

Skin disorders vary greatly in<br />

symptoms and severity. <strong>The</strong>y can be<br />

painful or painless, permanent or<br />

temporary, minor or life-threatening.<br />

Most skin disorders, including acne,<br />

hives, blisters, rosacea and cold<br />

sores, are not serious in nature. <strong>The</strong>y<br />

can be treated with over-the-counter<br />

remedies. But, when treatments are<br />

not achieving the desired outcome,<br />

it’s time to make an appointment with<br />

a dermatology specialist provider,<br />

whose practice makes patient care<br />

the top priority.<br />

For more than 30 years, Dean<br />

Goodless, M.D., of Goodless<br />

Dermatology has managed thousands<br />

of cases of acne, psoriasis,<br />

eczema, skin cancer and other common<br />

skin conditions, as well as less<br />

common ones.<br />

“For things like suspicious moles<br />

or skin lesions, it’s best to come in<br />

as soon as possible,” Dr. Goodless<br />

said, “as these things really have<br />

no appropriate home remedies or<br />

treatments.”<br />

Dr. Goodless is a fellow of the<br />

American Academy of Dermatology<br />

and has practiced dermatology in the<br />

Greater Orlando area since 1997.<br />

8690 Point Cypress Drive offers general,<br />

surgical and cosmetic dermatology<br />

services to patients of any age<br />

— from newborns to seniors.<br />

Dr. Goodless graduated from the<br />

University of Miami Leonard M.<br />

Miller School of Medicine. He completed<br />

an internal medicine internship<br />

at the University of Florida and<br />

a second year of internal medicine<br />

residency at Mount Sinai Medical<br />

Center in Miami Beach. He subsequently<br />

attended the University of<br />

Miami, where he undertook a threeyear<br />

dermatology residency training<br />

program, serving as chief resident.<br />

<strong>The</strong> three-year dermatology residency<br />

after medical school at the<br />

University of Miami accomplishes<br />

many things.<br />

“It fills your internal database with<br />

a huge catalog of skin conditions,<br />

many of which you see several times<br />

a day and some you may only see<br />

once in your lifetime,” Dr. Goodless<br />

said. “But, you still need to recognize<br />

them when they show up in your<br />

clinic.<br />

“When I started medical school, I<br />

planned to go into family medicine,<br />

but I was so fascinated with dermatology,<br />

I decided to change specialties.<br />

Even after 30 years, I still<br />

encounter conditions I have never<br />

actually seen but only learned about<br />

in residency or in textbooks. With<br />

dermatology, we get to do a little bit<br />

of everything, treating patients from<br />

newborn to nursing home without<br />

any age restrictions.”<br />

Pediatric dermatology is a key<br />

area of specialization at Goodless<br />

Dermatology.<br />

“<strong>The</strong> challenge of children is that<br />

they assume everything is terribly<br />

painful, and their ability to cooperate<br />

is negligible,” Dr. Goodless said.<br />

“That being said, with gentle staff<br />

and a lot of reassurance, we are<br />

able to take good care of children<br />

even when they require biopsies or<br />

excisions. It is very important to be<br />

able to take care of little humans<br />

without unduly traumatizing them or<br />

instilling any sort of long-term fear of<br />

doctors.”<br />

Dr. Goodless recalled a young<br />

patient from whom he painlessly excised<br />

an arm lesion. Afterward, the<br />

patient exclaimed to his mother that<br />

he wanted to see Dr. Goodless for<br />

everything, even sore throats.<br />

“<strong>The</strong>re’s no happier feeling,” Dr.<br />

Goodless said.<br />

As a board-certified Mohs surgeon,<br />

Dr. Goodless not only detects<br />

and diagnoses skin cancers, he<br />

can treat them with Mohs surgery<br />

to ensure skin cancer is adequately<br />

excised.<br />

Dr. Goodless is a multitalented<br />

physician. He is one of the founding<br />

members of Dermasensa, a cosmeceutical<br />

skin care brand created<br />

and run by doctors. He has written a<br />

book about acne and another about<br />

psoriasis. Dr. Goodless also serves<br />

as an investigator on many Food and<br />

Drug Administration clinical trials.<br />

Goodless Dermatology also offers<br />

comprehensive treatment of atopic<br />

dermatitis, melanoma, plantar warts,<br />

psoriasis, rosacea, acne, alopecia<br />

areata and contact dermatitis. In<br />

addition, professional cosmetic skin<br />

care plans include procedures like<br />

customized facials, chemical peels,<br />

microdermabrasion, mircroneedling<br />

and injectable treatments.<br />

Over the past year, architectural<br />

design saw a surge in nature-inspired<br />

earth tones such as calming shades<br />

of blue and green. Homeowners can<br />

expect this trend to continue into the<br />

coming months but with warmer,<br />

richer colors.<br />

This ongoing interest in warm neutrals<br />

with earthy undertones and<br />

pink and blush shades is likely to<br />

be increasingly popular in 2023 as<br />

homeowners become more adventurous<br />

with their color choices as a<br />

form of creative expression.<br />

Trending Colors<br />

Selecting the right colors for your<br />

home project is often influenced<br />

by both your personal preferences<br />

and the latest design trends. Some<br />

contemporary options to consider<br />

include:<br />

• Earth tones. Warmer, naturallooking<br />

earth tones are versatile,<br />

working seamlessly with just about<br />

any design or architectural style of<br />

home. Some trending hues include<br />

muted terra cotta, green, yellow and<br />

plum.<br />

Trending Colors and<br />

Textures Inspire 2023 Home Design<br />

Nature-inspired tones and materials are trending for 2023.<br />

• Warm neutrals. Although they’re<br />

not typically used as statement colors,<br />

warm neutrals bring a sense of<br />

comfort while also offering an inviting,<br />

blank canvas to let individuality<br />

flow freely. On-trend options include<br />

shades of dark brown, caramel, tan<br />

or off-white.<br />

• Rich, dark colors. <strong>The</strong>se deep,<br />

saturated hues can make a house<br />

stand out and look more modern<br />

while still offering a nod to warmer<br />

hues. Chocolate brown, brick red or<br />

dark jade are popular choices for<br />

those who prefer rich hues.<br />

• Pink and blush shades. Various<br />

shades of pink, rose and blush will<br />

be increasingly popular choices<br />

for homeowners exuding a greater<br />

sense of self-expression. In home design,<br />

look for these colors to appear<br />

in coral, pink, red-orange, raspberry<br />

or blush tones.<br />

• Sweet pastels. <strong>The</strong>re are signs<br />

that homeowners are ready to bring<br />

colors back into their homes. Expect<br />

to see sweet pastel shades like soft<br />

pink, mint green and light purple in<br />

furniture, decor and accessories.<br />

Materials With Texture<br />

With warm neutrals and earth<br />

tones dominating the color palette,<br />

both interior and exterior design will<br />

depend heavily on texture to add<br />

definition. More design choices will<br />

move away from faux finishes and<br />

instead focus on natural and authentic<br />

looks, many of which can be<br />

achieved through brick and stone.<br />

Brick and stone give designers<br />

options for adding depth and<br />

dimension, integrating a play on<br />

light and shadows with a variety of<br />

textural elements.<br />

Brick carries a sense of tradition,<br />

character and timelessness while<br />

also serving as a popular choice<br />

for homeowners due to its design<br />

flexibility. Qualities such as lowmaintenance,<br />

resilience, durability,<br />

sustainability and beauty make brick<br />

an option that allows homeowners to<br />

Bring Color With Brick<br />

Brick is often selected for its functional<br />

benefits, but it’s also an appealing<br />

building product due to its<br />

versatile color, texture and size combinations.<br />

Color can evoke a certain<br />

mood and assist in achieving a desired<br />

outcome. Often, architects and<br />

designers even incorporate multiple<br />

colors or create custom looks by using<br />

multiple brick colors and styles.<br />

To help homeowners hone in on<br />

the perfect look to match their vision<br />

for contemporary design and align<br />

with anticipated 2023 color trends,<br />

Glen-Gery will introduce its inaugural<br />

Brick Color of the Year, a program<br />

that showcases trending hues<br />

that lend well to trending aesthetics.<br />

Reflecting contemporary earthy,<br />

nature-inspired color trends, the Pitt<br />

Cafe Series consists of four soft, neutral-toned,<br />

versatile bricks, ranging<br />

from creamy white to earth tone and<br />

brown-gray with highly pronounced<br />

textural features. What’s more, the<br />

series can be used for both interior<br />

and exterior applications for modern<br />

or contemporary designs.<br />

Think your space is ready for a<br />

new look in the new year, but don’t<br />

know where to start? A Delta Faucet<br />

product designer shared the timeless<br />

kitchen and bathroom trends<br />

she’s seeing in real customers’<br />

homes for a fresh look in 2023<br />

that will last for years to come.<br />

“<strong>The</strong>re are so many beautiful<br />

products on the market; homeowners<br />

should seek products<br />

that not only are beautiful, but<br />

also impactful,” said Maris<br />

Park Borris, Delta Faucet<br />

industrial designer. “Design<br />

should evoke emotion.<br />

Homeowners want to create<br />

new experiences in their spaces<br />

and are encouraged to do<br />

so now more than ever.”<br />

<strong>The</strong> top five home design<br />

trends for 2023 are leaning<br />

into the innovative, personal,<br />

unique and lasting. <strong>The</strong> country<br />

is no longer stuck at home,<br />

but we still see home as an extension<br />

of ourselves that represents<br />

who we are as people.<br />

To create your own new experiences<br />

in the home, here are<br />

five trend predictions for 2023<br />

to start incorporating in your own<br />

space.<br />

• Embrace natural tones and materials.<br />

Natural and organic materials<br />

bring an airiness to a room while<br />

also being timeless and long-lasting.<br />

Rather than bold, bright colors, natural<br />

warm tones will be popping up<br />

more and more in the kitchen and<br />

bathroom.<br />

“Natural materials are acting as<br />

showcase materials — from concrete<br />

to stones, woods, porcelain, tile and<br />

Natural tones and organic materials bring an<br />

airiness to the room.<br />

Impactful Home<br />

Design Trends for 2023<br />

crystal,” Park Borris said. “We are<br />

finding a lot of these natural materials<br />

are timeless in influencing mood<br />

and design.”<br />

• Create beautiful, gallery-like<br />

spaces. You love your things, so why<br />

not display them? <strong>The</strong> new year is<br />

ringing in luxe, gallery-like spaces.<br />

Think of a standalone tub as a statement<br />

piece or open shelving in a<br />

kitchen as a way to display your favorite<br />

items that normally would be<br />

hidden away.<br />

Southwest Orlando Home & Real Estate x January 2023 x 3<br />

“And allow luxury to go beyond<br />

aesthetics and create comfort for all<br />

your senses,” Park Borris said. “In<br />

2023, free yourself to make rooms<br />

experiential, not just functional.”<br />

• Make a statement (wall). A<br />

statement wall can completely shift<br />

the design of a room quite easily.<br />

A floral wall in the bathroom or a<br />

tropical print behind the sink can<br />

bring life and personality to the<br />

space.<br />

“Anything with patterns, either<br />

vintage-looking or modern, can<br />

shift design intent and complete a<br />

room,” Park Borris said. “I see a lot<br />

of mural wallpapers, too — they<br />

can be quite transformative and<br />

can really seal a design.”<br />

• Make your space work harder.<br />

You may not be in a position to upgrade<br />

to a larger space, but 2023<br />

trends bring more options to utilize<br />

what you have. Don’t see a kitchen<br />

as just a kitchen; maybe adding<br />

a small desk in an unused corner<br />

makes it a work-from-home kitchen.<br />

“A lot of people are not looking<br />

for more space, per se, but looking<br />

for better-organized spaces that<br />

work harder with split functionality,”<br />

Park Borris said. “We’ve expected<br />

so much of our homes recently, and<br />

that thought is not going away.”<br />

• Be authentic and break the<br />

rules. It’s your space — it should be<br />

a reflection of you. Throw design<br />

rules out the window and create a<br />

truly authentic space you love.<br />

“I believe people will continue to<br />

make their spaces their own,” Park<br />

Borris said. “<strong>The</strong>re aren’t as many<br />

rules of design as there used to<br />

be. I believe the things that evoke<br />

personal emotion will always be in<br />

style, and our spaces will evolve as<br />

our styles do.”<br />

<strong>The</strong> new year is bringing in many<br />

trends in home design. Whether it’s<br />

natural materials or a pop of pattern<br />

with a statement wall, authenticity<br />

will be key.<br />

12 x January 2023 x Southwest Orlando Home & Real Estate<br />

Do you want a new look for your<br />

home? Perhaps you crave an update<br />

but you want to avoid the time<br />

and cost commitment of a complete<br />

renovation? You may be surprised<br />

how a few well-chosen elements can<br />

breathe new life into your home.<br />

Interior designers know that strategic<br />

updates can revitalize a space<br />

without extensive construction. <strong>The</strong><br />

key is to choose features with designs<br />

that speak to you. <strong>The</strong>se items<br />

must have provenance and presence<br />

to create an atmosphere the<br />

moment you enter the room.<br />

Curated Design<br />

<strong>The</strong> preferred design aesthetic of a<br />

room is highly personal, but all good<br />

design follows certain principles.<br />

Take cues from experienced designers<br />

who know that by selecting a few<br />

well-chosen products, you can create<br />

ambience that impacts an entire<br />

space. <strong>The</strong> design of the elements<br />

should be memorable and draw the<br />

eye without being overwhelming.<br />

For example, the Occasion<br />

Lighting Collection from Kohler is a<br />

We<br />

deliver<br />

Breathe New Life Into Your Home<br />

simple yet elegant way to transform<br />

any space. This collection of impeccable<br />

craft combines sculptural metal<br />

frames with light-capturing<br />

ribbed glass shades that draw<br />

inspiration from the transformative<br />

designs of the early<br />

1960s. This is a period of time<br />

when interiors were an intercontinental<br />

mix of bold color,<br />

tapestries, Japanese screens<br />

and other treasures to showcase<br />

the owner’s travels and<br />

interests.<br />

This unique collection is<br />

engineered with the same<br />

precision as that of fine jewelry<br />

making. <strong>The</strong> interplay<br />

between the faceted frames<br />

and the sparkling, multidimensional<br />

display of light as it<br />

cascades through the crystalribbed<br />

shades results in forms<br />

that are bold yet sensual with<br />

an undeniable presence.<br />

Strategic Updates<br />

Lighting is an accessible, highimpact<br />

way to transform a room<br />

A new lighting design can elevate a space without needing a full renovation.<br />

and stay on budget. Whether it’s<br />

an eye-catching chandelier, pretty<br />

pendants, perfectly placed sconces<br />

or functional and fashionable flushmount<br />

lighting elements, there’s<br />

something for every space.<br />

Beyond lighting, there are other<br />

strategies that can help you achieve<br />

an updated effect without taking on<br />

a renovation. Some other methods<br />

designers use to transform a room<br />

include thoughtfully selecting pieces<br />

such as a beautiful area rug, stunning<br />

wall art, graceful mirror or tabletop<br />

objet d’art.<br />

You can add sophistication, create<br />

visual tension and add dramatic impact<br />

through color or sculpted forms.<br />

Keep in mind, the provenance of the<br />

pieces selected can be anything from<br />

where each was found or made, the<br />

artist behind the design, the materials<br />

the piece is made from, or the craft<br />

employed to create the piece.<br />

Above all else, it’s important to<br />

be selective. An artful form that has<br />

meaning or a story behind it elevates<br />

and redefines a space, allowing you<br />

to achieve a lot of impact without<br />

spending a lot of money. Whether<br />

curating the family heirlooms of tomorrow<br />

or simply giving your home<br />

a refresh by purchasing a pivotal<br />

piece, products that make a statement<br />

can take your interior to a<br />

whole new level in design.<br />
