Join The Boost Movement – Event Recap

Christian Confidential | Adidas Two weeks ago, I had the pleasure of collaborating on a cool men’s training initiative with Adidas Canada. If you’ve been following my blog for a while you already know how much of an integral role fitness plays in my lifestyle. I’m very competitive when it comes to sports and working out (blame it on the countless years of running track and playing football) – so when it comes to the type of workout gear that I wear, I want it to be the best. Recently, I was introduced to a new pair of men’s training shoes by Adidas called the Pure Boost ZG‘s  and I’m not going to lie, they’re pretty bad ass! They’ve got just the right amount of boost technology to keep you feeling light on your feet and stable enough to react to quick movements.

I invited a few of my boys to come out and put these kicks to the test during a high intensity training session. My personal trainer, Adam Reynolds and co-founder of Catalyst Health curated a crazy circuit for us to complete including the use of weights, medicine balls, rowing machines, Airdyne bikes, Woodway treadmills & much more! Christian Confidential | Adidas To say that this training session was a tough one is an understatement but at the end of it we were all happy that we pushed through it! In regards to the apparel and footwear, they held up to the hype that I shared with the guys before the session. To see more of what went down during the bootcamp, my team put together a little video for you to take a look at below!

Until next time,

(How To) Get The Shot

#MogoPerks | Christian ConfidentialLast week I had the pleasure of hosting MOGO Financial‘s first influencer event in Toronto. If you haven’t heard of MOGO, it’s a financial company based out of Vancouver that has a focus on helping it’s customers be more conscious  on their spending habits by promoting pre paid credit cards as well as providing low interest rate for various types of loans. The thing that I like about working with this brand is that they’re always pushing the envelope, listening to what their customers want and introducing their ever growing #mogoperks community to cool concepts and ideas, such as this event!

Processed with VSCOcam with hb2 presetInstagram, is a huge phenomenon for our generation and with that comes the pressure of getting the perfect shot. Mogo with the help of Kastor & Pollux came up with a dope concept to combine fitness, photography and social media all together. My friends Daniel & Luke came out to help me host a small group of influencers + a few #mogoperks members. We ventured out to  Sky Zone to get our sweat on and learn how to grab the perfect motion shot from two of Toronto’s prominent photographers Othello Grey and Neva.#MogoPerks | Christian ConfidentialIt was a blast and  the results were… well take a look for yourself! Clean, in focus and Insta-worthy!  To get in on the fun, sign up to become a #mogoperks member by heading to their website here.

Until next time,
