This week started off a bit a slow, motivation wise that is. Confession—> After taking a week off from the gym and enjoying my leisurely walks and slow runs on the beach, I did not want to go back to teaching. Actually, I just wanted more time at the beach. Can you blame me?
But then I remembered I had NEW PUMA gear waiting for me at the house. Having new gear to wear while teaching fitness classes is like a business woman buying a new briefcase or suite. You just feel more professional and you’re ready to tackle the job. Seriously, it helps MOTIVATE the MOTIVATOR.
Let’s talk about gear first, shall we?
I’m not gonna lie, when I first received the PUMA I thought “Oh, very pretty, but I wonder how they will really hold up with my strength and sweat classes.” Well, I’ve never been more happy to be proven WRONG. No need to wonder here. I was completely amazed at the durability, the comfort, and how light all of the gear felt.
The tank is extremely light weight and the small fit me perfectly. We sweated a TON during burpees and squats, and the tank top did not feel sweaty after. I thought it must have been a miracle or something. Ha!
The shoes are VERY light and pretty supportive for this kind of training. We did walking lunges and single leg hops in our warm up and the shoes held up great. I wouldn’t recommend them for running, but for gym workouts, they are perfect. They are also very true to size. I didn’t need a size higher or lower.
The compression pants feel amazing. Although I wish I had ordered a size smaller. I like compression gear EXTRA tight. But they still fit great, just my preference. The compression tights are awesome to wear during or after workouts.
Since it’s so hot in TX, I mainly wore mine after workouts for recovery. But I can’t wait to wear them running in the Fall!
I guess you could say the PUMA gear gave me a little PUMP this week. Pumped to teach and thankful to being doing what I love.
Get PUMPED for this workout.
Now.. maybe we could move to a beach and I could teach bootcamp by the ocean breeze. That would solve everything, right? Ha..
Have tried PUMA before? What’s your fitness PUMP? New gear, new toys, a workout buddy?
Cheers to FRIDAY and Cheers to KIWI COTTER coming home from FRANCE today!
