Ron Jones found his way to foot fitness with his own painful experience with plantar fasciitis. As a life-long runner and hiker, he was severely debilitated from plantar fasciitis to the point where he could no longer run and could not even walk with a limp. He wanted a better way to fix his foot that was less invasive and more natural; hence, the beginning of his journey to help others improve health from the ground up through foot fitness. The information shared on this site worked to fix Ron’s foot pain and hundreds of others in his corporate wellness and website business. The solution can be quite simple–if you begin to trust your feet FIRST.
