Like. A. Glove.

Reebok has this awesome new campaign that I feel lucky to be a part of. Have you seen the killer video??

I am a huge fan, especially since I used to do gymnastics, and one of the USA Olympic gymnasts, Aly Raisman, rocks it in the video. I promise you won’t regret watching!

Beware: Watching this video may cause major motivation.

I was psyched about the shoes as soon as I got them in the mail and made sure to blurt out to my man-fan (new word for boyfriend. Like it? Winking smile) and my brother that the shoes were Z-Rated. I actually had to look that up. But them? They immediately smiled and responded, “like the tire!?” You bet. Sports-car handling for your feet during your run so you can be “unnaturally quick”. Aren’t convinced yet? Their booties lock your feet in, mind you, all while being low-cut. This is exactly what I meant when I said Like. A. Glove. I am a chick who CANNOT wear shoes without socks. Just like I cannot sleep WITH socks. And must have low-cut socks and shoes. Unless they’re knee-high socks. Because when were those ever a bad thing? Winking smile I digress.

Major cozy, speedy feet. I’m a fan. Major fan.

I love that the Z-Quick Run shoes are super light, but still stabilize my feet.

After years of rolling my ankles playing volleyball, gymnastics & soccer, I need a stable shoe. These give me both the light shoe &  quick-ness I want while keeping my feet secure. Love it.

The groves in the sole flex and expand while you run. Bless the people who make shoes using technology. They’re geniuses.

These are technically running shoes but I have also used these for some HIIT workouts and the outstanding handling these shoes have make them very versatile!

And as a an ER nurse…

I LOVE the fungus inhibiting feature. Open-mouthed smile

No fungus here.

Fun? Yes. But Fungus? No. Winking smile

And who happened to be wearing my Reebok PWR leggings the morning my shoes arrived??

Doesn’t surprise me … I adore my Reebok clothes & shoes and wear them on the regular. Now I get to add my Reebok ZQuick shoes to the mix!

I #LiveWithFire

Posted July 5, 2013 By electrafi

If this isn’t living with fire, I don’t know what is!

Reebok has done it again. I’ve told you how I am a weeeee (ok – opposite of weeee Winking smile) bit in love with my Reebok clothes & shoes.

My gosh – I think the majority of my workout wardrobe is Reebok.

Especially my shoes. Hoard Reebok shoes much? I do! Smile with tongue out

(I have a firm disclosure policy. I received no payment, but Reebok sent me the above clothes & shoes at no cost. Every single opinion in this post is all my own.)

The shoes pictured above are Reebok’s Zig Carbon shoes. I die.

  • First of all – black and pink? Yes. Please.
  • I love carbon fiber on cars. How do I know this? My man is a car, tool, true man’s man and I’ve known about carbon fiber on cars due to its light weight and speed assistance for ages. Did I know it could be put on shoes? Nope. But if it can be done, Reebok will do it! It makes the shoes perfect for speed, flexibility, and they weight almost nothing, but as Reebok says – stand up to anything. The carbon fiber plate in the shoe gives midfoot support which is very important during high impact movements. Similar to many of the other Reebok shoes I have, they’re very flexible and have great shock absorption. The tops are mesh and breathe really well – no stink feet here! Winking smile

The pants are the MOST ASKED ABOUT pants I’ve ever worn. They’re the Reebok PWR Leggings.

  • One of the things I look for in workout clothes is how fun or bright or motivating they are. Let’s face it – if you have more fun or brighter clothes or shoes on, you’re going to smash that workout just a little bit harder, and that little bit just might be the difference maker. Make your clothes and shoes work for you. More motivation never hurt anyone!
  • These leggings are part of the Reebok ONE collection. They say things like “MAKE EVERY REP COUNT,” “BETTER YOUR BEST,” “1 MORE,” “STRENGTH.” C’mon now. Can’t get better than that!
  • As a nurse, I am LOVING that they have an antimicrobial component. HECK YEAH!
  • We all know some spandex pants are made funky. These cause no riding up, no muffin top creation, and no cutting off circulation. Thank the spandex Gods. They’re comfortable and they flatter your body.

The blue top is a the Reebok Yoga Long Bra Top.

  • Going to be totally honest here – didn’t like it the first time I put it on. But, then I took out the boob padding, got my sweat on, and realized how awesome the shirt really is.
  • It has the PlayDry technology so it keeps the top from getting soaked through even if you sweat like a beast like me! It’s a racerback – my personal fav! And super super soft.
  • There’s a bra inside the top which I’m not a huge fan of normally, but it’s not too loose, not too tight. I always wear a regular sports bra, even if there’s an “internal bra” in a shirt. Sometimes that makes it too uncomfortably tight. This one didn’t. Not too loose, not too tight. If you did use it without a regular sports bra, I’m not sure if it’d be supportive enough for the girls with jumping or sprinting, if you know what I mean!

For quite some time, Reebok has been a go-to for me in regards to my Fit Gear.

I’ve done photoshoots … professional video … all in reebok clothes.

I do workouts on the regular in Reebok clothes…

Handstands in Reebok clothes…

You name, I do it in Reebok clothes and shoes. And I love it.

Reebok clothes and shoes are functional and fun – my MO!

Case and point here … Winking smile

Reebok Sky DMX

Posted March 1, 2013 By electrafi

Walking on clouds? Check!

Fun Colors? Check!

Great Style? Check!

Perfect Fit? Check!

Feel Wonderful? Check!

Uber Comfy? Check!

AMAZING Performance? Check!
Stability? Check!

You name it – these shoes are IT!

(Funny because the morning I got these in the mail, I was wearing this shirt and bra to go to the gym in. Can you say fate? Colors. Match. – FYI this bra is Reebok too. LOVE. IT!)

***

The new Reebok Sky DMX have to be my favorite Reebok (or for that matter – any brand) of workout shoes yet! You all know how much I LOVE Reebok…

and wear my Hulk Nanos all. day. every. leg. day.

(Christina & I at Reebok Crossfit One Fifth Ave in NYC!)

Now I have just one more reason to love Reebok and their shoes. It’s a Reebok Sky DMX Love affair – don’t tell my big man! Winking smile

These shoes feel “ridiculous” as they’re described – so insanely comfortable, but they work. I have found most really comfy workout shoes are just that. Comfy. Perfomance though is usually nil. Not with these. Reebok has found the perfect mix of comfortable and high performance. The air cushions your feet, and one of my absolute favorite things about these shoes is that the air moves forward and back, but does NOT move laterally (side to side). This keeps the shoes supportive and increases shoe stability, while still allowing for the “shock” system and support. They’re also breathable – featuring mesh on the top so your feet don’t get too stinky! Smile with tongue out

The only thing I won’t use these for is leg day. I prefer a flat shoe with hardly any cushion to enable me to feel myself pushing through my heels (or not). Other than that, these are my new go-to shoes – plyos, weight lifting, sprints, cardio days – all of the above and much much more. I don’t run much anymore but I did a couple sprints and these things will cushion your joints, so runners, you’d love these too. That’s another thing I’m in awe with – they created shoes that not only meet weight lifters requirements, but sprinters, and runners, and group class-goers and the list goes on and on.

Can you tell I’m a MAJOR fan of these shoes? Reebok gets a thumbs up from me! You’ll be seeing these in my pictures very. often. Maybe I’ll have to buy another pair in different colors so you don’t get sick of seeing these! They have pink and black and blue and they’re all fun like these.

I think these are the next ones I want:

Killer color palate hm?

The Reebok Sky DMX shoes are officially on my must have, must buy more soon list. You too? Open-mouthed smile

Our Story Was Suspect

Posted January 25, 2013 By electrafi

My story was suspect wasn’t it?

Lots of build up – Operation Lean anyone?

Christina, The Athletarian, and I then just happened to be in NYC on the same three days out of the 365 days of 2012.

And we just happened to workout together.

And we just happened to workout at a killer facility that everyone is trying to get their butt to.

And we just happened to get a bunch of killer gear.

And we just happened to post about just “hanging out in NYC” together.

And there just happened to be a “the end” to the story without any huge exciting news we both kept talking about.

Yeah. That’s the story. Riiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiight.

So now that we officially got word we can share, the story is ALL YOURS and no longer suspect!!

WOO! HOO!

Christina and I got to be a huge part of a PopSugar & Reebok campaign going on right now.

(Christina wrote about it all here “I Can Finally Tell You My Secret!!”)

I had so much fun filming the video, parts in Chicago, parts in NYC. I loved filming working out, and I loved spending time with Christina.

I could say SO much about it but I really want the video to take center stage.

Christina is amazing. So lucky to call her my friend! Teary eyed after the video anyone? Winking smile

Supportive fitness friends rock. Love. Love. Love this community!
