A discipline recognized by science.
A real passion for sport addicted, running is the "pro" evolution of simple jogging. In running times are measured, distances are calculated, you decide when to increase and when to decrease speed. Doing it with the right clothing is essential.
To say it is science: running is a discipline full of benefits. And if you run in the mountains, breathing nature in its purest form, the beneficial properties of running are added to those of a clean breath.
Running is good for the heart, the brain and the mood. It prevents numerous pathologies, improving the heart efficiency and fighting arterial hypertension. It doesn’t only burn calories and facilitate the loss of pounds and inches: it is a natural antidepressant as it increases serotonin levels and decreases stress levels.
Whether you run fast or slower, for many kilometers or for a short distance, it gives an extraordinary feeling of freedom. It rejuvenates the brain: according to a study by the University of Kentucky, a person between 50 and 69 who runs three times a week stimulates the production of new brain cells. While 20 minutes of running are enough to keep the biological balance high and to reduce anxiety. Running stimulates irisin (the so-called "sport hormone"): the more you run, the more you produce it, the more your health will benefit.
However, running in the mountains requires the right equipment. Zinermann, in Livigno, offers a wide range of shoes and clothing for running, with its specialists ready to recommend the most suitable models.
The perfect running shoes depend on your running style, where they will be used and the length of the ride. For off-road routes, such as mountain trails with mud and rocks, you need shoes capable of offering high traction, for adequate support and to guarantee stability and protection.

Running can put a strain on the body. It is important to protect your feet, which are the guardians of the good balance of the body. The insoles are made of materials that allow maximum propulsion, shock dissipation and excellent support. To avoid wounds and blisters, wear insoles that fit your feet. Fun, prevention and performance at every step.
Freedom of movement, breathability, adherence and, of course, design too: there are many characteristics to consider when choosing clothing. Running clothes must protect from wind and rain and facilitate movement by absorbing moisture: they must therefore maintain a constant temperature, transforming sweat into heat. From technical shirts to trousers, it's fundamental that they are suitable for the season and the context.
