Nike France

Nike France x Travel With ChristianNike France x Travel With ChristianOne of the things I love most about travelling and blogging is being able to find cool ways to incorporate some of  the brands that  I work  with on my journey. I got the chance to visit the Nike media showroom in Paris and discuss fashion and fitness for the upcoming Fall/Winter season. We touched on key items for both men & women, the start up of their  Paris Run Club (which I also participated in) & I got to preview some of the fall collection that’s not yet in stores!Nike France x Travel With ChristianNike France x Travel With Christian

  The Sportswear collection for women is pretty amazing, the Roshe’s were a definite highlight for me.

Last year’s Aeroloft 800  vest saved my life when it came to running outdoor, so I’m excited to test out this new outerwear piece for men when it’s available in Canada.

Nike France x Travel With ChristianRunning with the Paris Run Club was such a great experience. I think that running is such a great way to explore a new city and doing it with an enthusiastic  group can make it that much better. The run group along with the run captain Jay of Black Rainbow were so welcoming and really pushed me with my pace. After our run we did a short core and muscle building circuit, followed up with some stretching. All in all; it was a great experience training with the Parisian team and amazing to see how they executed their program. Thank you to both my Canadian Nike family for making this happen & my new French Nike family for the warm welcome! Until next time Paris!Nike France x Travel With ChristianNike France x Travel With Christian

Street Style ‘Paris Edition’ x ManOfAKind PT.3

Christian Confidential x ManOfAKind | ParisChristian Confidential x ManOfAKind | Paris I love fashion & being that I was staying in one of the worlds most fashion forward cities it only made sense to incorporate some street style looks while being out there! Staying true to my roots I wanted to showcase mixing luxury items with my everyday favourites – with the help of Henri -Nicolas of Man of A Kind I think we did exactly that.

I paired  a vintage Neil Barrett  mixed media biker jacket with a Givenchy signature tee, black denim from H&M and a pair of suede Chelsea boots. While Henri wore a pair of biker jeans from Balmain, an IRO two toned pull over & a pair of Chelsea boots from Sandro Paris.

I hope you guys enjoy our looks as much as we enjoyed shooting them!

Photo Diary – Paris Edition PT.2

Travel With Christian | ParisTravel With Christian | Paris

My time in Paris was one of the best experiences I’ve had in my entire life.  Picking up and traveling alone across the world and making an unknown area home, even if it’s temporary is probably one of the most exhilarating things you can do. I learned so much about myself by being present in the moment and open to what this beautiful city had to offer. Whether it be figuring out how to use their transit system, feeling comfortable dining alone, exploring the city on a motor bike or just getting use to the Parisian way of doing things. Everyday I attempted to discover something new and the days that I needed something familiar I ventured back to my favourite hangouts; Ladurée & Café Charlot.Travel With Christian | ParisSacré Coeur – MontmartreTravel With Christian | Paris

I decided to title this post “Photo Diary” because that’s truly what this collection of images represent  to me. These were some of my favourite moments captured throughout my time in Paris and although they may not all seem personal on the surface what they signify as a whole is this pinnacle moment in my life that I decided to take a chance and trust the unknown . This is something that I’m getting more and more comfortable with embracing and this month long adventure was the starting point.

While in Paris, I spent quite a bit of time in an area called Le Marais. It’s rich with street art & culture and not to mention a lot of the fashion elites have their studios there. That being said it makes it really easy to find cool places to shoot. I decided to pull out the ‘all black’ uniform for this street style look. I paired this leather motto jacket from Sandro Paris with a simple black tank & a pair of black denim from H&M.

Playa De Castelldefels

My last few days in Spain, I stayed in a small town just outside of Barcelona called Castelldefels. Although Castelldefels seemed to be as beautiful as Barcelona, I decided to spend most of my time on the beach. A lot less crowded than Barcelona, Playa Castelldefels made for the perfect location to  read a good book, catch some sun & relax.

Some highlights of my trip included the Picasso Museum & the Museum of Modern Art both located in the Gothic Quarter. The W Hotel provided amazing customer service, the beach was also steps away from the hotel which was a great add on & the famous La Sagrada Familia lived up to  all of it’s hype and more.

Interval Training

Fitness Tip | Interval Training

Few things are better for your body than adding a solid interval routine into your cardio program.  Pushing yourself mentally & physically will bring benefits that you will see & feel faster than you’d have thought possible.

An easy way to add interval training into your next workout is one minute of high intensity running followed by forty-five seconds of moderate jogging, cycled five or more times.  As you improve, shorten the recovery cycle to keep it challenging.  Fitness Tip | Interval Training

Of course, good gear is as important as a good attitude and these Nike Flyknit Lunar 2’s were the perfect shoe for this kind of activity – super light & built to compliment your natural foot rhythm, they definitely help you be your best.
