I’m so excited to talk to you about my new running shoes! I bought the adidas Ultraboost 21 running shoes back in early February, and I have fallen in love with them!
Every six months, I like to replace my athletic shoes in order to ensure they have optimum support. I am very protective of my feet! A solid, supportive shoe is a must not only when engaging in athletic activities, but on a daily basis. Nothing is worse for your feet than ill-fitting shoes and/or shoes which do not properly support your foot. Think about your feet as your foundation. With an unstable foundation, a building will fall; so will a human with an improper fitting shoe. When a shoe fits, and offers great support, your feet are happy, you have more energy, and you are less likely to injure yourself.
Now that I have semi-lectured you on shoes, let’s chat about my favorite new athletic shoes! The adidas Ultraboost 21 running shoes are beyond amazing. They have an ultra-supportive sole which hits my footbed in all the right places. The arch support is perfect, and they protect my ankle in the right spots.
You might be wondering why I am talking about a running shoe when I am not a big runner. Well, I prefer running shoes for my everyday fitness activities. Running shoes tend to have optimal shock absorption, and they are flexible, which makes squats and lunges easy to execute. The sole is also on the wider side, which helps offer optimal stability when doing leg-work. I love doing squats and lunges!
My addias Ultraboost 21 running shoes are fabulous, not only for running, but for all of the fitness classes I enjoy taking. I wear them for cardio classes, kickboxing classes, and also several HIIT style classes. My adidas Ultraboost 21 running shoes give me the exact support I need for all of those workout classes. Love that!
But wait, there’s more! The adidas Ultraboost 21 running shoes also have some pretty cool specs I am excited to share with you. In addition to the adidas Torsion System, which provides a 15% increase in forefoot bending (love this for squats), they are made from PrimeBlue. PrimeBlue is a high-performance recycled material made partly with Parley Ocean Plastic. adidas does not use any new polyester in these shoes, only recycled. Love that!
Since grey and yellow are the colors of 2021, I chose my adidas Ultraboost 21 running shoes in grey with a touch of yellow; the official color combo is Halo Silver/Grey Two/Solar Yellow. My feet need to be both fashionable and well-supported. If grey isn’t your thing, adidas offers the Ultraboost 21 running shoe in nineteen color combos! I am sure you will find one you love!
You can find the adidas Ultraboost 21 running shoes online at adidas.com. They are available for both men and women. Love that!

Spring is starting to. . . spring! The Magnolia blossoms are starting to bloom, and the prettiest cherry blossoms are popping up all over town. The sun is shining, and the days are less chilly as they offer us more sunshine. This means it is time to gear up for spring fitness!
I love switching out my fitness gear each season to fit the weather, and the types of exercises I plan to do. I also like to freshen up my shoes. Footwear is really important as it should be switched out every few months in order to ensure you have proper support; after all, footwear is your foundation.
My favorite fitness gear brand, adidas, for whom I am a Brand Ambassador (obviously since I love them so much!) has the perfect gear for spring fitness. I am in love with their new Ultraboost 21 running shoes. They have the most amazing support, and they leave my feet happy after a workout or a run. Although they are running shoes, I also wear them for cardio workouts, HIIT classes, and weights. They are a comfortable and supportive shoe all around. I snapped up a pair in grey, since it happens to be the color of 2021. My feet always need to be fashionable and fabulous 😊
Since spring is a season which swings between cool and warm temperatures, a sweatshirt which is easy to move in, is a must! I am loving this Terrex Tech Fleece hoodie from adidas. It is thin and lightweight, which is perfect for working out, while also being warm and cozy for outdoor fitness. Spring will definitely remain an outdoor workout season, this hoodie is a must!
My spring fitness routine:
Monday: Cardio: UJam fitness class
Tuesday: Interval: The Drop
Wednesday: 30 min walk outside
Thursday: Interval: Tabata and Core
Friday: Cardio: Spin
Saturday: Family hike
I am thankful my gym has classes online, as well as in person classes and fitness outside. Here in California, our gyms are still outside-only, so my workouts are still 100% outside. I have to admit, I love working out outside, it will be hard to go back inside when things start to reopen! The fresh air is really nice, and I love seeing sunshine while I workout too!
What are your workout plans for spring season?

Sneakers for spring 2021 are here! Athleisure has become more and more important in the world of fashion as it has taken over the streets over the past decade; and some would argue the last two decades! With the current pandemic, people are finding themselves wearing sneakers more and more as athleisure becomes the dominant street style we have all been rocking as we increasingly stay home.
Since outdoor activities and comfort are at the forefront of fashion, and personal style, right now, a comfortable and fabulous sneaker is a must! Street sneakers are important, since we all want to save our serious sneakers for sports and fitness. With a street sneaker, we can enjoy comfort while walking around, running errands, etc., yet still express our personal style on a daily basis.
Last year we saw a rise in white sneakers, platform sneakers, and wearing two different sneakers; yes, that last trend fizzled and died within one season, haha. Now that we are in 2021, we are all wanting a little bit more fun and pizzazz in our footwear.
Spring 2021 is all about vintage inspiration, bright colors, metallic fabrications, and a bit of “look-at-me-I-am-out-of-the-house.” With inspiration from the 1970s through to the early 2000s, spring 2021 sneakers are taking on a flashy vibe. We are looking at platforms, chunky soles, metallic hues, groundbreaking florals (so shocking for spring right??), wedge sneakers (yes, these toe stubbers are back from the dead), preppy boat sneakers, slip-on skater styles, and canvas sneakers in general. If you wore it in high or college, it’s time to wear it again. So pop some TLC into your CD player, and buy some funky and fun sneakers for spring! Unless you are planning to rock the nautical and preppy ’80’s trend; then pop some Rick Astley into your cassette deck and rick-roll yourself.
Without further ado, here are the four biggest trends in sneakers for spring 2021.
Platform sneakers and chunky sneakers are a continuing trend which has taken on a bit more flash than before. For spring 2021, look for platform or chunky sneakers in trendy florals, designer logo prints, stripes, metallic hues, cartoon prints, and painted patterns.
Have some fun with your platform sneakers or chunky sneakers, this is not a serious trend, it’s lighthearted and enjoyable. Isn’t that what we all need right now? Love!
Canvas sneakers is a catch-all for three separate trends we are seeing emerge for spring 2021. Nautical and boat shoes are having a moment as the preppy ’80’s reemerge. If you long for the days of a convertible red BMW and a pink polo shirt, this is your year. Look for boat shoe inspired sneakers to round out your look.
Are you a sk8ter? Grab your skateboard from 1991 and pick up a pair of canvas slip-on sneakers. You can go traditional with Vans, or mix things up by snagging a pair with 2021 florals, logos, and more. You don’t have to look like you walked out of 1991, just take some inspiration, slip on some canvas sneakers, grab your skateboard, and have fun!
Remember the days of white Keds in the 1980s? The style is back, but with some flair. Instead of only being allowed to wear white canvas sneakers, for 2021, you want anything but white canvas sneakers. Look for Keds-inspired styles in denim, floral prints, logos, cartoon prints, and more fun looks. Have fun with your canvas sneakers; it’s not 1988 anymore, so you don’t have to worry about being caught in a pair of canvas sneakers that aren’t white. Loving this!
OMG this is so groundbreaking! Are you sitting down? Big news!! Get this, florals are big for spring 2021. Isn’t that crazy? Who would have thought! Well, at least we can narrow down which type of floral prints are big this spring as opposed to past spring seasons. For spring 2021, look for smaller floral prints, no big giant flowers. Floral print sneakers are a huge trend this spring, so have fun with it; it really is groundbreaking.
I’m eyeing the slip-on pair. I love how the floral print looks on the slip-on sneaker styles. Which style do you like?
Metallic sneakers come and go, as far as sneaker trends are concerned. They are currently huge as we see the return of the metallic mirror trend from the turn of the century. Why not have glitter sneakers, or metallic sneakers to pair with your mirrored silver handbag? Yes, those are back too, but I digress. . .
Look for glitter, metallic accents, mixed metallics, and solid metallic sneakers this spring. These are definitely “notice me” kicks, so have some fun with the pair you pick.
