If there’s one thing that we’re proud of at ZEMgear it’s the wide variety of athletes that love our shoes. We’re not gloating, but it’s a testament to how many sports ZEM’s are perfect for. The types of sports where the last thing you want to be thinking about is the pain or discomfort of ill fitting foot attire.
Think about it, how often do you watch a sporting event and think ‘I wonder what the athlete’s choice footwear is that’s helping them excel in their field of sport?’ How about for bodybuilding in particular? Well, Christopher Blazosek is sharing some insight with us on this topic! He is a NASM Certified Personal Trainer as well as NGA and USBF Natural Bodybuilder. He told us ‘when I train, I need to be comfortable and ZEM has definitely helped me elevate my game.’ He continued to explain that the lightweight and flexibility of the Hero’s really helped improve his dead lift and in his words he ‘can’t picture’ himself performing that lift without a pair of ZEM’S on his feet!
Chris spoke about his motivations and inspired us, hopefully you as well, with these few words: ‘you are only as good as your last meet or workout. Come that next meet or workout, whatever happened before doesn’t matter. To me, there is no ceiling and there is always some aspect you can improve on. In the end, you are only competing against yourself and that is what is so addicting about it.’
WOW right? Let’s all get out there and continue to train while living in the ZONE OF ENDLESS MOTION!!
