REEBOK Anyone who knows me realizes that I have a long term relationship with fitness and a love for clothes. People close to me also know I have a huge addiction to anything “food”. I’m often asked if I “jones” salty or sweet. My reply is always…. YES!

Because of my complete love affair with deliciousness, it is a complete blessing that I love fitness and apparel so much to offset my weakness for food.

REEBOK NANO 4.0

One of the huge perks of working in the fitness industry is the opportunity to try cutting edge fitness programs and products. Lucky me, because both clothes and food both fit into this category of bliss. So, now, imagine my delight as I drove into my drive way and discovered a package from rebok begging to be ripped open.

Secretly, I was hoping for…

Nano 4.0: The Perfect Gym Shoe

The following post is sponsored by FitFluential LLC on behalf of Reebok.

REEBOK NANO4Reebok’s CrossFit Nano 4.0 shoes are not just for CrossFit enthusiasts. While the CrossFit community did help Reebok design the perfect shoe for their type of training, this shoe belongs in EVERY gym.

The 4mm heel to toe drop makes this shoe super stable, which is important when lifting weights – especially for leg day. That’s why the Nano is the shoe I wear every day I do heavy lifting, squatting or any other workout requiring balance or a good stable base.

Here is an example of my leg routine I did this week with my new Nano 4.0s!

LEG DAY

6 Sets of Prone Hamstring Curls
My weights:
2 Sets 50lbs
2 Sets 60lbs
2 Sets 70lbs

 straight leg deadlifts4 Sets of Straight Leg Deadlifts
15 reps at 95lbs (Steve was wearing his new Nanos too!)

4 Sets of Seated Hamstring Curls
15 sets of 60-80lbs
(going up each set, ending with 12 reps)

Leg Press4-5 Sets of Leg Press
30 reps (Starting with 2 Plates ending with 4 Plates)

4 Sets of 1-Leg Leg Press
20 reps – Starting with 1 plate, going to 4 plates
(shedding 1 plate after 10 reps)

Leg Extension4 Sets of Leg Extension
20 reps each
If you want to go up in weight each set,
you can go down in reps :)
FEEL THE BURNNNNNN! ;)

 

My Nano4 Review:

Reebok Nano4The first day I wore my new Nano 4.0s, I did an hour on the elliptical, an hour of legs and an hour of kickboxing. I have to admit, that was a little overkill on the first day of breaking in a shoe. I got a little blister around my ankle from the extra support they put in the shoe during kickboxing, but wore them again with no problems at all. While I wouldn’t go on a long run with them personally (because my feet do better with a little more arch support and cushion), I will use them for short runs, elliptical, plyos and weight training.

The upper part of the shoe is wrapped in a protective lightweight rubber mesh that adds more durability (great for rope climbing) and activities where the upper shoe may rub against another surface. The shoe’s sole grips the ground nicely, perfect for box jumps and plyos.

Aside from the practicality of the shoe in a fitness setting, the Nanos are the only tennis shoe I find myself wearing outSIDE the gym! Steve and I both wear them with regular clothes because they just look cool. Instead of a typical looking tennis shoe that looks like it’s only made for running, Reebok Nanos look stylish enough to wear with jeans or cute shorts. They are hands-down the most versatile tennis shoe on the market.

BIG SALE: Reebok Nano 2.0s (& Shoe Tips for Pain-Free Workouts)

This post contains affiliate links and I will be compensated if you make a purchase after clicking on my links.

crossfit nano 2.0Out of all my Reebok shoes, the Nano 2.0s are still some of my favorite kicks of all time. The way the look, the way they feel, the way they perform – nothing compares. They are one of the few pair of tennis shoes that look great in the gym, but also look awesome with jeans, shorts and even capris.

I have so many people ask me about my nanos, but one of the common responses is they are never on sale. So I made a pact to tell you when they ARE!!

Today only, you can get your own pair of Reebok CrossFit Nano 2.0 in Nacho Orange (V51721) for just $55! These exact shoes are the last Nanos I purchased myself and I paid full price I might add! 

crossfit nano 2.0I should warn you. This item is limited in stock, and the sale only lasts one day, May 29th, so be sure to hurry and grab yours! Have fun shopping!!!

  ► Use Promo Code: NANO55

What’s a Nano? Nanos are not a running shoe, they are a cross-training shoe that are awesome for lifting, doing plyos, short sprints (or shorter runs), rope climbing and body weight exercises. These shoes ROCK!

Are Your Shoes Hurting You?

running painDid you know getting the wrong shoes can cause all kinds of odd body pain?

You can have knee issues, calf issues, painful ankles, hip pain and foot pain – all because you bought the wrong shoe for you OR you are wearing the right shoe for the wrong exercise! If you experience muscle or joint pain, the first thing you should try to try another pair of shoes. Whether they are old, or they just aren’t the right type of shoe for you (or the exercise), some pains can be eliminated simply by changing shoes!

Lunge-Hour Workout

FitFluential LLC compensated me for this post. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

Reebok CrossFit GearNothing sculpts the glutes, inner and out thigh, and legs like lunges. Here is a killer lung workout you can do anywhere. NOTE TO LADIES: If you are sick of workout shorts riding up on leg day, these CrossFit Shorts totally rock. they have built-in undies (so no accidental flashing of pink parts, lol) and, while the fit flat and snug around the waist, they are loose around the thigh – and the stretch fabric lets you kick, squat and lunge without binding up or pulling. Plus, they don’t look like those running shorts that are so baggy they look like diapers. These shorts are all the same comfort, but much more flattering. :)

Reebok Z-Rated Shoes & Workout

The following post is sponsored by FitFluential LLC on behalf of Reebok. 

Sometimes it’s not enough to just be fast. You need to be able to move quick. If your daily run is never running in a straight line, this shoe is your kind of shoe. Check it out!

reebok zquickReebok just came out with a really cool high-traction running shoe that’s made to move quick. If you like the natural feel of a super light shoe that gives you just enough cushion without losing the feel of the road, this shoe is for you! What I love most about this shoe (besides how light it is) is definitely the traction. Traction is out of control. The outer sole is designed for maximum ground contact so your foot really grabs the ground for quick switches, turns, jumps and stops. Not only is this great for running (especially when your route includes navigating around traffic, puddles, people, dogs and uneven sidewalks) I’m super excited about using these shoes on my functional training days. These shoes are going to crush sprints, box jumps, heismansShuffle Touches, and other exercises that require more traction.

Inspired by hi-performance, Z-Rated tires, the Reebok Z Run running shoe are like sports car tires on your feet. The Z-Rated technology delivers control, traction and speed – just like my Corvette!

reebok zquickHere are the things I like most about the shoe:

  • Super Light
  • Smooth No-Sew upper
  • Low-cut for mobility
  • Roomy toe box
  • Awesome tread for killer control, traction and speed
  • Super flexible midsole

Here’s a cool video on the technology of the shoe:

“These shoes will make you UNNATURALLY QUICK!” So set your timer and get ready to crush this workout!! Click on the workout name to see video demonstration of each exercise.

The Incredible Flexible Washable Reebok Skyscape

reebok skyscapeReebok Skyscape

Reebok did it again! They came out with the cutest, lightest (5 OUNCE!) , seamless, super comfy and totally machine washable (DID YOU HEAR ME???? I SAAAID MACHINE WASHABLE!!! how COOL is THAT?!) tennis shoe, perfect for daily wear! It’s call the Reebok Skyscape.

Sometimes you just want a cute minimal shoe that is cozy but doesn’t look like an athletic shoe for those days you want to be comfy but you don’t want to look like you are going for a run. If this is YOU, then you might want to try out this cool new pair of kicks.

The material is wild! It’s smooth, soft and stretchy material makes this shoe like nothing else I’ve ever put on my foot. Plus, it has a pillowy tongue with extra cushion so tight laces don’t cut off circulation or irritate the top of your foot. Basically, comfy was their focus and they nailed it. I wore it to work yesterday, knowing I was going to have to stand on my feet for several hours straight, and they didn’t let me down.

Check ‘em out!

Best One-of-a-Kind Christmas Gift for Fitness

FitFluential LLC compensated me for this post. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

ReeboksI love fashion. I may not always be the most “fashionable”, but I love to “play” with style. Since there are not a lot of accessories you can wear while working out, (I mean, it’s not like you can wear bangle bracelets, chunky necklaces and chandelier earrings), you’re somewhat limited to the actual clothes you have to wear to get your sweat on.

For instance, I have to wear socks, so they might as well be fun! I have to wear tennis shoes, so they might as well be colorful. I often have to put my hair up in a ponytail, so why not wear pigtails with matching rubber bands? Why not, right?

FUN SOCKS

I wear workout clothes for a living. After years of wearing black and grey, I was super excited about all the pretty color that entered into the fitness world. Then I discovered cute tennis shoes that didn’t look like bulky tennis shoes. Slowly, but surely, I started wearing more tennis shoes with everyday clothing – because shoes were so much cuter than ever before. Since I have so many flashy colored Reeboks, I was ready to get a more neutral pair for every day use – in or out of the gym. I have have very little that matches grey, and NOTHING that matches blue, so I thought I’d try designing my next pair of shoes!  Here are some of my custom Nano 2.0s (my favorite in and out of the gym tenny!). Now I’m just trying to figure out which one to buy – OR should I try a new color combo?

Which one do you like best?
