My name is Courtney and I'm the author behind the blog Sweet Tooth, Sweet Life. I'm a 28-year-old personal trainer and former elementary school teacher. I live up in Upstate, NY, with my husband and high school sweetheart, Jay, and have lived here all of my life. When I'm not training, you'll most likely find me blogging, in the kitchen, or spending time with some of my favorite friends and family.
This past May, I was presented with the opportunity to visit the Reebok World Headquarters in Canton, MA, and my entire experience there was incredible. The Reebok team members were so friendly and super knowledgeable of their products, the Cross Fit WOD and cardio dance class were insanely awesome, and the generous goodies we received while visiting was pretty much the icing on the cake.
Ever since that one day in May, I have been in love with my Reebok gear.
The sneakers have easily become my go-to pair (and of course, I swap colors to coordinate outfits!), and the apparel is some of the comfiest stuff that I own.
Recently, I was sent some of Reebok’s newest footwear and apparel to try out.
While I immediately fell in love with the comfort of the top, I think my favorite thing about it was the length. I love me a long-length workout top, and this one definitely fit the bill.
Another thing I've been loving? This gorgeous pair of Reebok RealFlex Fusion TR's.
These sneakers have been absolutely great for so many reasons. For one, I've recently had to cut back on my own workouts and have been doing a lot of walking. These sneakers have, without a doubt, been a perfect shoe for that.
In addition to being able to do all of my walking with them, they've also proven to be a great shoe for when I'm training clients as well.
I'm looking forward to the day when I'm able to once again start doing some killer circuit and HIIT workouts with these bad boys, but for now I've got to do what's best for me and my body.
Honestly, my personal fitness lifestyle has changed drastically in the past three months and it's often been a challenge at times. Some days, I let myself sulk and feel bad about it. Other days, I remind myself to be thankful for the things that I CAN do, and often look to others for some extra inspiration.
One of those people would have to be Chris Powell.
I've long been a fan of him, for a number of reasons, but have most recently become obsessed with him and his training on Extreme Makeover Weight Loss Edition. Just watching Chris on that show proves that he is, for many — including myself — a fitness hero.
Chris inspires me to keep doing what I'm doing, regardless of it being just walking and yoga. He also motivates me to continue to be an even better personal trainer with my own clients. He's uplifting. He's motivational. He's tough when he needs to be, just as I strive to do.
And let's be real . . . he's pretty easy on the eyes, too.
I actually have this picture of Chris posted on my "My Fit Pin-Spiration" board on Pinterest because he is, in fact, my fitness inspiration.
If you check out my "My Fit Pin-Spiration" board, you'll see Chris, along with some other faces of fitness that I look to for inspiration and motivation. And right now, you can actually create your own "Fit Pin-Spiration" board on Pinterest as a part of the Reebok Pinterest Contest. Who do you look to as your inspiration? It can be anyone who has overcome a fitness hurdle and doesn’t have to be a household name!
