Taught a BOSU class.
Jumped on the treadmill for 5 easy miles. Actually, they were supposed to be 5 easy miles, but they felt hard. I went pretty slow, but I just wasn’t really feeling it.
I survived though.
Then enjoyed one heck of yummy-filled almost empty almond butter jar.
In the jar- coconut mush, a granny smith apple, Penzeys apple pie spice and a packet of Trader Joe’s almond, cashew and chocolate trail mix.
It was delightful.
No other food pictures this fine morning. Consider it a little gift from me to you. He he.
I got to catch a glimpse here and there. Wish I could’ve parked it and watched the whole darn thing, but sometimes life doesn’t work out like that, right?
Well, since I wasn’t able to watch too much of the games or attend in person (which I’m sure was amazing), I could at least pretend I was a cool cross fitting type with these brand spanking new pair of Reebok CrossFit Nano 3.0 shoes to review. He he.
I heard these shoes were all over at the CrossFit Games and that pretty much all the athletes were wearing them.
I know, right? How awesome is the purple and black color? They have them available in other colors too, but I’m very happy with the color that was sent to me.
I have the custom Nano 2.0 shoes that I designed myself with “STUFT Mama” on the side of course.
I love them and was pretty sure I’d love these for a lot of the classes I teach too.
Whelp, I was right. These Nanos are a step up from the 2.0s and just that much better.
Some specifics on the CrossFit Nano 3.0:
Reebok CrossFit functional training shoe engineered for the comfort and performance needed for all-around training day workouts. Reebok CrossFit is true functional training footwear engineered for workout-specific comfort and performance.
Single layer mesh upper for increased breathability and flexibility.
C.P.U. upper construction for lightweight support and foot stabilization without unneeded overlays.
ETC anti-friction lining to help reduce moisture and heat build-up and increase workout comfort.
Dual density midsole for highly responsive feel in the heel with cushioning and flexibility in the forefoot.
SplayZone midfoot/outsole engineering for full-foot dispersion with great stability and natural feel.
CRMantle sheath to optimize strength, durability and flexibility plus help with added rope climbing protection.
Ortholite sockliner for interior cushioning with anti-microbial treatment for odor control. CRTEK carbon rubber outsole for durability and traction.
While I have not yet worn these to climb ropes or do a standard CrossFit workout, I have worn them to teach quite a few classes.
On Monday I wore them to teach my HIIT class.
They stayed on pretty much all day and made it through another HIIT class later at the Y and a step aerobics class.
Yesterday I wore them to teach BOSU.
I’ve decided that these Nanos are the best shoes for BOSU classes. They are just the right mix of support without being too controlling to maneuver properly on the BOSU.
Oh, and hey, check out the cool little logo on the back.
Talk about sporting some cool shoes at the gym.
Things I especially like about the Nano 3.0.
They are flatter than most cross trainers, which is good for certain types of classes like strength training, BOSU and my interval classes.
They are very comfortable and functional. After spending a long day and sweating quite a bit in them, my feet still felt great and somehow didn’t seem too sweaty. Your feet can breathe a bit in them.
The new 3.0 versions seem more form fitting and hug my feet a little more which I really like in cross training shoes that are on my feet for long days teaching at the gym.
And, well, since it’s Wednesday and all, I have a little workout video for you.
This is a quick four move AMRAP (as many reps as possible) full body workout that will get your heart rate up in a hurry.
The only equipment you need is a resistance band.
I’m not wearing my new shoes because I didn’t want to get them dirty. He he.
Yes, my head is cut off for the first move, but hey, you probably don’t want to see my face anyway.
Yes, I taped this at the park and there were quite a few people giving me some pretty weird looks. They should’ve joined in, huh?
And here’s the workout written out all nice and pretty for you to make you want to do it just that much more.
