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.
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 a package from Cheese Cake Factory, but Reebok is definitely a close second. As I tore into the package, it became evident I was about to discover a new pair of shoes.
What jumped out was a sick pair of black and red Reebok Nano 4.0’s. Woo Hoo!
This was over the top because of all the black and red gear I have to accessorize with these new shoes. (See, I am comfy enough with my “mextroality” that I enjoy accessorizing my dibbs – and even my wife.) As I slid the first shoe on my foot I felt like Cinderfella. It fit like a glove. Now, all I had to decide is what kind of carnage do I want to impose them to?
Since the Nano 4.0 are pretty flat and a super stable shoe, this makes them great for leg day. The Nanos were made for squats, box jumps, dead lifts, double unders, burpees and lower body conditioning workouts – so legs & conditioning it is!!
The rest is history, and it went like this: (spoiler alert: the Nano 4.0 rocked the test)

Once you’re done, don’t forget to stretch out, have a protein shake and post your workout on facebook! You know what they say, “if you don’t post your workout, it’s like it never happened”. lol
