Beach Tennis

nybt10

ZEMgear is sponsoring four Beach Tennis tournaments this summer. Beach Tennis is growing, it is fun and played everywhere.

ZEMgear footwear was initially developed for sand sport so it is natural that the Beach Tennis players have adopted wearing ZEMs and love it. We encourage YOU to also try on a pair of ZEMs for your activities on and off the sand.

ZEMgear was also featured in the Beach Tennis magazine where Christina Bracken, ZEMgear founder, was interviewed about the idea behind and the benefits of ZEMgear shoes.

To learn more about the Beach Tennis tournaments that we sponsored, see the links below.

Flippenout Productions feature world-class athletes who perform extreme trampoline shows for the NBA, NFL, NCAA, NHL, WNBA, campuses, fairs, festivals, parades as well as for corporate messaging, marketing, and motivational events. Flippenout’s Extreme Trampoline Shows are unique and explosive entertainment that appeal to audiences of all ages.

Flippenout Athletes broke Guinness World Record for Highest Trampoline Bounce (Team) on July 13, 2012!spider450x450

Flippenout Athletes recently discovered ZEMgear footwear while looking for shoes that would support their dynamic movements without hindering their performance. ZEMgear shoes provide just that. As ZEM stands for Zone of Endless Motion, we pride ourselves in designing and manufacturing shoes that support and protect while also being light and not cumbersome. Proprioception describes the sensory feedback that is passed on from over 250,000 nerve endings in the sole of the foot to the brain. Information travels more quickly and directly from your foot to your brain when there is Less Shoe and More You. We can just imagine that Extreme Trampoline Athletes would appreciate that!

Living a ZEMtastic Life One Day at a Time!

360zem1

We have been advocating endless motion and this recent article from The Washington Post, Runners are not giving themselves arthritis, proves that movement is good for you at any age or stage in your life. ZEM stands for the ZONE of ENDLESS MOTION and defines a space where we can discover new possibilities for ourselves. A zone where new beginnings are possible and restrictions are left behind. ZEMgear goes far beyond a normal shoe, but rather a shoe that makes you want to live a healthier lifestyle.

 

Our shoes are made to move with you. The article tackles the many myths people believe; for instance, that running can cause arthritis when in reality “running probably offers protection from osteoarthritis.” We always encourage our ZEM community to be active and reach out of their comfort zone and jump into their Zone of Endless Motion! The article explains how important it is to be active in a safe manner, “If you try to go from the couch to a marathon without putting in the necessary training, you’re liable to get hurt.” Read more at http://www.washingtonpost.com/national/health-science/runners-are-not-giving-themselves-arthritis/2013/08/12/2cca7a96-fdde-11e2-9711-3708310f6f4d_story.html

At ZEMgear, we are always excited to learn more about how our customers are using their ZEMs. We truly believe in our message of ‘Zone of Endless Motion’ and discovering new possibilities for ourselves. That is why we were particularly happy to learn about Debbie Spoons and her ‘ZEM’ adventures in caving!

 

Debbie enjoys caving while wearing her Terra Tech ZEMs. She is a great example of how ZEMgear can be used for all different types of activities. Her ZEMs are able to give her “great traction to get through those tight spots!” as she is caving.

 

Debbie’s background and experience is as unique as the activities that she enjoys. She was a police officer in South Seattle for several years. Right now she is a teacher in a charter school. She enjoys caving, Karate, and climbing

Bren Tompkins completes Cremator 50 mile race in ZEM 2Cinch!

Bren-Cremator-2cinch

Bren has done it again! Bren Tompkins completed the Cremator 50 mile endurance race in his ZEM 2Cinch! On July 20th he completed the Cremator 50 mile endurance race in 11 hours 5 minutes and 52 seconds in a pair of ZEM 2Cinch! The entire race took place on pavement in 101 degree heat index weather and he had no problem from the shoe to pavement.

 

We congratulate Bren on finishing 22nd out of 50 people!

 

Bren is a 32 year old union pipe insulator with full custody of both of his kids. In 2010 he quit smoking after 13 years of smoking two packs a day. He was not very active in his life and his back went out with 2 ruptured discs in October of that year. Doctors told him he wouldn’t be able to run or climb anymore after it healed. In Spring 2011 he decided to prove him wrong and began running regularly. After finishing several 5k races, he began training to run a marathon.

 

 

From all the training/races he suffered several minor injuries that were recurring; like black toe nails, runners knee, etc. No matter the shoes or sizes he wore he kept getting these injuries. “One day I remembered a game called Mirrors Edge and I remember the shoes the character in the game had. I did a Google search and found ZEM. I ordered my first pair of O2 and was hooked, so I ordered Terra & 360 shortly after. As of today my O2 have been over 250 miles, my 360s have ran approximately 404.76 miles, my Terra which I wear daily, I’ve completed: 3 half-marathons, 15k bridge run, and a 50k ultra marathon in so far.”-Bren

 

Bren is not the only one in his family in love with ZEMgear. His children Trustin, 12, and Faith, 9, own a pair of originals and Terra. They both wore holes in their first pair of ZEM originals and begged for a pair of Terra. Trustin is an avid gamer, loves soccer, bicycling, and is starting to run. Faith loves to be outdoors on her bike, skateboard, or just running around.
