Choosing the right footwear to fit your health and fitness needs is just as important as the goals you set yourself on a daily basis, whether it’s in sport or the workplace.
The Reebok Floatride is an excellent running shoe that combines the optimal mix of cushioning and responsiveness, marking yet another coup in Reebok’s long history in producing the best footwear in the market.
The shoe offers cushioning, stability and a bouncy heel to help you get the best out of your sporting performance.
In addition, the Floatride is combined with a sock like seam-free one piece ultraknit construction to offer support and breathable flexibility, and to help balance the foot throughout your running stride.
Having competed in many long distance races over the past year, these runners are the best I’ve used so far. Not only are the Floatride’s breathable but their comfortable design allows athletes to push to the maximum.
What impresses me about the Floatride is how the cushioning softens the impact while you run. Other shoes don’t offer enough support so your feet always feel heavy during your training session. With the cushioning on offer in this exceptional Reebok model, you can run with confidence.
The price itself – at AED 645 – is mid-range but if you are a passionate runner and want to achieve your goals, then these shoes are the ideal fit.
Coming in a lovely combination of blue and black with a white sole, the design is stylish – but very much built for getting the best out of your training experience.
Overall, I was extremely impressed by the Floatride’s comfort, design and support – and I would definitely recommend them for any runner in the UAE or the Middle East.
The highly-anticipated launch of Elevaete’s first collection has finally arrived with the brand releasing ‘Square One’ – a four-piece line made in the UAE aimed at supporting women in the Emirates on their fitness journeys.
Elevaete began with the purpose of providing products for empowerment and a community for encouragement, and after releasing their ‘Emira-Tee’ last December in honour of UAE National Day, they’ve now brought to life their very first collection.
UAE-born-and-raised duo Tanvi Malik and Dana Miskulnig are the masterminds behind Elevaete and their goal is to create pieces that cater to all women.
“Our first collection is a reflection of where we come from and where we want to go,” says Malik, the designer of the brand. “We are laying down the foundations to build a strong brand and make a positive impact on our community. We want to encourage everyone to celebrate their ‘Square Ones’ – this isn’t the bottom, it’s the start.”
Community is an important part of Elevaete’s ethos. They’ve brought together leaders in the UAE fitness industry along with fitness enthusiasts in their Stretch+Talk Series and are keen to play a part in connecting active and inspiring women here in the Emirates.
Here’s a look at their new collection:
BRING IT UP TANK
This tank is designed to take you from zero to burpees real quick. The asymmetrical hem can be worn loose or tied up for when things get serious. Mesh panel in the back allows for ventilation, round neck gives enough coverage to work with any bra and it’s finished off with the brand’s signature AE logo.
Colours: white, red & black or black, green & white
LEVEL UP LONG SLEEVE TEE
Inspired by traditional baseball tees, the raglan long sleeves give maximum stretch and mobility to this loose-fitted top. Whether you wear it as a cover up or while you train, the double-paneled back is open on both sides to allow cross-ventilation and the thumbholes keep it in place while you move.
Colours: white & red or black & green
THE BASE SHORT
Classic 5” shorts with a retro twist, color-blocking and a hidden interior pocket at the waistband so they can take you as far as you’re ready to go. These aren’t basic, these are your base.
Colours: black, red & white or black, green & blue
THE GROUNDWORK LEGGING
This legging comes in two options, one with mesh and one fully color-blocked, to give a little more class or a little more sass, depending on the look you’re going for. Hidden interior pocket and wide waistband for best support and signature AE logo to top it all off.
Colours: black, green & white or black, blue, red & white
The S-Drive Performance Trainer isn’t just your standard gym treadmill.
For those of you that like forward-thinking fitness kit with advanced technology, then the S-Drive has the answers.
The state-of-the-art self-powered treadmill is perfect for all running abilities, but it is designed more for those people who want to push themselves – and in the process – run faster, quicker and even jump higher.
A standout feature is the 7-degree incline which is ideal for building strength and explosiveness with proper technique, whether it is performing forward, lateral or reverse movements.
Couple that with its parachute and sled brakes – both extremely tough on the legs where you can vary between cardio and strength-building workouts.
The sled brake has eight settings which provides a real-life weighted sled pushing experience, while the parachute brake has 11 settings which gives the feel of real parachute resistance.
Having tested its efficiency, the S-Drive is an ideal piece of kit to use as part of your circuit training and works on many different aspects of fitness, whether you are looking to build endurance, explosive pace or mix-up your routine.
Having a wide range of settings like this allows you to alter your level of difficulty, depending on whether you are doing a strength or endurance session whether that be in the gym or your own house.
As a whole, we are thoroughly impressed by the S-Drive and it will definitely bring smiles to the faces of those looking to push their fitness boundaries on a daily basis.
