I have the privelege of partnering with Under Armour for their year-end campaign. I will do a review and give-a-way of the Women’s Under Armour Spine Rpm running shoe , in addition to partnering with 10 total Sweat Pink and FitFluential ambassadors to provide more reach for our give-a-ways on Facebook next week. As mentioned in my previous post, we are launching a “Healthy Chrismtas Gifts” give-a-way series on Facebook from Monday through Friday of next week to give all of you ten chances to win awesome gifts!
Earlier this week I got home from Thanksgiving vacation in FL, and my Women’s Under Armour Spine Rpm Running Shoes were waiting for me on my door step. I was super pumped to see what they looked like in person, and was certainly not disspaointed. I absolutely love the color and they look very comfortable.
On Wednesday I took my first three mile jog outside in the UA shoes. I wear a size 6.5 in women’s dress shoes, and usually get a full size up in my runners. I ordered the 7.5 in the UA shoes, and they are a bit too big. If I would have tried them on in the store, I would have gone for the 7’s. So, keep that in mind if you win the give-a-way! For my 3 mile run, I used the insoles that come in the UA shoes … they did not support my feet in the least. So, I was sure to transfer my insoles from my Mizunos into the UA shoes as soon as I got home 🙂
Yesterday I had a few clients in the gym, so I wore the Under Armour running shoes for a few hours. They were great on the cross training machines, and certainly comfortable. In fact, my feet usually get numb on the elliptical after a while, and that didn’t happen to me yesterday — interesting. I also felt pretty cool walking around the gym with such good looking runners 🙂 I did a few laps around the track with clients, and they were fine, but I don’t think I would wear them for a race — my feet seem to slap the ground more with the UA runners versus my Mizunos or Saucony’s. I will likely (mostly) wear them for plyos and cross training.
Overall, I am super stoked to have this new pair of Under Armour running shoes, and thrilled that Under Armour asked me to partner with them on a campaign. What an honor! Stay tuned for a give-a-way on Monday for these shoes, and 9 more chances for you to win both Under Armour and other healthy Christmas gifts for your friends and family.
