Ok, summer is around the corner and approaching fast. As much as we would all wish it, that “winter weight” isn’t all thick clothes and heavy boots. Nope, big boy, time to get yourself back on the workout wagon, and no company has embraced that ethic more than Reebok.
Ever since the original Crossfit shoe, the Nano, dropped eight years ago, Reebok has consistently produced one of the top workout shoes. Embracing and embodying the Reebok mantra “Be More Human”, Pat Vellner, a Reebok Crossfit athlete and student is the perfect face of the slogan. Finding time to juggle life is the definition of human and staying in at least semi-decent shape is even harder. Here, Mr. Vellner tells it better than me:
“There’s a little bit of give and take everywhere. In the off-season of CrossFit, I really focus a lot more on school and I make sure I work ahead and get as much done as I can. Then when the time comes to invest more time into CrossFit and prepare for the Games, I can afford to do that because I’ve worked ahead.”
“There are a lot of decisions that’ll need to be made in the spring or summer and a lot of changes that are going to come with that,” says Vellner.
“One thing is for certain: Competing at the elite level in CrossFit will remain part of the equation.
“At the end of the day, you make time for things that matter to you.”
