I am LOVING my new PUMA GEAR.

At work training clients in PUMA head to toe. Feeling great.

It feels so good and is just what I needed. Recently, I was lucky enough to participate in a Campaign for PUMA. I love being a Fit Fluential Ambassador because I always get the latest and greatest products when it comes to fitness and health.

So I am excited to tell you about these NEW Formlite Puma Shoes, also a new PUMA Outfit from their Compression line, as well as leave you with a killer Moni circuit that I created (below). As an added bonus – make sure you see my quick video (below also) having a FUN afternoon adventure in my new Puma Kicks. (You will see what I mean when you watch). So let’s get started!

PUMA Formlite Footwear: VERY lightweight, "feather" inspired outsole that provides multi-dimensional flexibility for cross-training. They look HOT & feel so great too. Added BONUS!

Formlite XL is the lightest in class with aerodynamic, 360 fit and flex.

As you know I am a shoe snob (what, it is seriously true). With that said I am a big fan of Vibrams, Nike- (3.0 & 5.0), New Balance –(Vibram Edition) and now I can honestly add Puma Formlite XT Ultra to the list.

What do these all have in common? They are LIGHT as a feather, not bulky, form-fitting, breathable, and true to your actual real foot print. The second I put them on – my feet felt great in my movement.

I am on the floor all day as a trainer and chef so I really need to feel good in my shoes so my body in return feels good. The midsole is lightweight with rubber pods for superior cushioning. They are comfortable and stable at the same time. The outsole design was actually inspired by a feather. Cool right? There is 360 flexibility and weight reduction which is so important to me.  If your shoes are weighing you down and are too bulky you can absolutely be hurting your body over time. The other thing that I look for in all my shoes are that they must be breathable for outside (I live in sunny L.A.!) and form-fitting both of which this shoe has.

One thing that impressed me the most and where I think PUMA is very ahead amongst the rest – is the travel bag that these shoes come in!

Puma nailed it. A "CLEVER LITTLE BAG!" to easily carry your shoes around. So "clever" indeed and I use it for all my shoes and goodies when I head out to play.

Now check out this hot NEW Compression Line from PUMA that I am happily sporting.

Deadlifting feels as good as it can when you are in the right clothes. Just Having Fun!

When you think of PUMA – you usually think of the footwear and may not always think of their apparel. Well, I say think again. The words used to describe this CELL Technology: silky, light, breathable, smooth, strong, snug, and my quads felt cozy in a great way.

Love how great this CELL Technology feels during all my training.  PS - Do you spy the "Clever Litte Bag?"

It is so important as an athlete (especially) to feel as comfortable as possible when training. What I also love and appreciate is the Climate Control factor included for this line. Highly functional materials draw sweat away from your skin to keep you dry and cool during exercise. If you know me, you know I hate over heating or getting too hot in my workouts – so this is something I always look for when I buy workout clothes. There is a huge difference and it is so worth it. There is also a MP3 Player pocket- love that! What makes this line different is the ACTV technology integrates athletic tape right into the interior of the garment to help you maximize your workout. Cool right! Lycra content provides long lasting elasticity for enhanced freedom of  movement.

What I also like and you will too is that the prints are fun and hot. Everyday I wear these tights – someone comments on how great they look.

So to put it all together…let’s work out!

Here is my FUN #PumaFitness Circuit for you to do!

GO!!

REPEAT 3-5 ROUNDS. Keep your heart rate up and try to work straight through one round. Keep that form good!

  • 1 min of Burpees – Fast and strong.
  • 1 min Back Lunges with an added Bicep Curl – Switch sides and use a weight that is heavy enough for 1 min. of bicep curls. Meanwhile, engage your standing glute. Burn baby burn!
  • 1 min Push-Ups – Watch your form and if you need to modify; come down to your knees.
  • 1 min of Tricep Dips – Make sure your shoulders are not shrugged up and that your elbows are not sticking out. Very important! Slow and controlled form.
  • 1 min Boat Crunches – sitting on top of the step; crunch your legs out and in.
  • 1 min of Tummy Tucks – in a plank position, lead your right knee to the right elbow, crunch and hold then return back to plank position. Now pick up the left knee to the left elbow and crunch your core and your obliques.

NOW REPEAT 3-5 Times! Make sure you keep proper form, work hard for intensity, stay hydrated, and…HAVE FUN.
