The Shoe Review: Nike MetCon 1 vs the new MetCon 2

June 10, 2016

 I’ve got one pair of heels held hostage amongst 12 pairs of trainers, so it’s safe to say I might have learned a thing or two about what shoes work best for training.  And before CrossFit I tended to opt for Asics- a  comfortable and stable trainer that’s great for both running and fitness classes. But last year, a few months into starting CrossFit, I finally got around to trying on a pair of Reebok Nanos. And while I am sure they perform well, I never purchased a pair due to how uncomfortable they felt on my wide feet. Then the Nike MetCons were revealed, and I decided to give them a go. They were the answer to my CrossFit shoe prayers. They fit like a dream.

January 21, 2016

I started CrossFit in June of 2015 and, over the last few months, as I have found myself plummeting deeper and deeper down the CrossFit wormhole, I have begun to don some new activewear. Yeah, basically I copy all the cool kids at my CrossFit gym, hoping that one day I’ll complete 15.1 without even breaking a sweat.

lululemon: the power of support

September 17, 2015

How do you want to feel? That is the key question you may be asked when moseying on over to any lululemon pant wall from now on. Of course, you can answer with an emotional response and a lululemon educator will be more than happy to have a chat about that as well. But the people behind lululemon also wants to know how your body wants to feel. Especially when you slip on their newest tights that can be found on their iconic and revamped pant walls.
