Remember on my last post how I talked about living life outside the box? Well thanks to my Friends at Reebok I was given the opportunity to try out a shoe made for something other than CrossFit. Obviously I love my Nano‘s, but Reebok has so many other shoes made for different activities. They recently came out with the Reebok Cardio Ultra, the perfect shoe for your Studio Cardio classes.
I wanted to put them to the test and try out a fun new class so I joined my friends over at Pink Lemon Studio for a BUTI Hoop class.
I didn’t realize it when I picked this class, but it wasn’t the traditional hoop class I was thinking – turns out it was more of a yoga type class. I did wear the Cardio Ultra’s for the first part of the class and found that it was awesome to have the AdaptAMove Upper with bonded mesh and a flexible cage for multidirectional support, the shoe moves with you! It was also pretty light for a shoe of it’s type.
These shoes move with you during your class. If this had been a more dancing/hooping focused class it would have been great to use the TurnZone that allows you to spin around 360 degrees. They have more cushioning than I’m used to which would be great for higher impact cardio classes.
It was super fun to get out of the box and try something new with my fitness. I’ll definitely go back… and maybe even try out the Twerking class!
Do you want to win a pair of Reebok Cardio Ultra’s? All you have to do to enter is leave a comment telling me what your favorite type of fitness class is! Entries will close at midnight on Thursday 3/19 and winner will be chosen on 3/20.
What is your favorite type of fitness class?
CrossFitters are know for a lot of things… knee socks, sweat angels, & epic shirts are just a few. When it comes to CrossFit shirts the most common ones are those with hilarious sayings that seem to be in a foreign language (and may be slightly offensive to those who are unfamiliar with the terminology). Now, I’m one of the most immature people around and will be the first to make a “that’s what she said” joke but I can also appreciate a really well done graphic design. Level 1 Apparel goes beyond the hilariously inappropriate/motivational quote and incorporates some amazing graphic design into their apparel.
When I first saw their work I was instantly drawn to all the detail. The neon Death by Barbell tank is just as comfortable as it is cool. I fit comfortably in a large. I paired mine with my pink Fabletics Lima Capris
I also wore it during a humid day when the WOD included bear complexes… so yea, it was nearly death by barbell… The tanks they print on are super soft and have a looser fit, so if you are between sizes size down.
They have guys apparel also! One of my favorite guy designs is the Bear Complex t-shirt
I mean- how hard core is that, right? How can you not feel strong wearing something like that! Brian and his wife started this company in the Fall of 2012 after helping design shirts for their box. It turned out so well they started their own line and have continued to design for other boxes as well. I love what he has to say about designing apparel – “Our goal is to provide apparel for CrossFit athletes that includes more than just a catchy slogan, but is also a work of art. Each design is meticulously drawn and revised, with close attention paid to every detail.”
So if you are looking for a rockin tshirt or tank to wear during your next WOD be sure to hop over to the Level 1 Apparel site and check it out. Not only was Brian kind enough to send me a tank to try out, he wants to give away a gift certificate for one of you to pick out your own tank or tee from his line! Giveaway will be open through 4/15 and winner will be announed on 4/16.

Hey Friends! How are you doing? Things are still crazy busy over here, but in a good way! We are still working on moving to our new location with CrossFit. Can you believe there is 1 week until Christmas Eve? Me either.
In all the craziness and hustle and bustle of the holidays it helps to have some of the smaller details taken care of for you. If you are planning on taking a trip and don’t want to worry about finding a ride to the airport check out The Parking Spot.
We have used them before and have never been disappointed. We aren’t traveling over Christmas or New Years, but we are heading out on our very first Disney Cruise in January and plan on parking there for the week we will be gone. It’s nice not to have to think about getting a ride, paying a taxi, or wondering if your car is safe. With The Parking Spot drop off is easy, riding a polka dot bus is fun, and pick up is a breeze. They even offer chilled water and a free copy of USA Today if you’d like it! They also offer competitive pricing, along with Car Care options like Car Wash, Oil Change, and detailing. With one less thing to worry about you can enjoy your trip even more. Check out their location directory to see if there is a Parking Spot at your local airport.
