NTC Court Fit

NBA All-Star Weekend in Toronto may be over but I am still feeling the effects of our special basketball inspired NTC workout lead by Nike Master Trainers Eva Redpath and Emily Hutchins. At 6:30am on Sunday morning we arrived at Mattamy Athletic Centre, which was converted into a Jordan Brand court for the weekend. To help take the sting off having to wake up at 5:30am after a long week of events, Nike treated the ladies to a braid bar experience pre workout. Just before our sweat sesh commenced, we were introduced to Canadian Olympian basketball player (and former Notre Dame Fighting Irish) Natalie Achonwa. The 6’3″ Forward, who currently plays for the Indiana Fever, graciously helped us through the ball handling skills after a dynamic warm-up and killer workout created by Em and Eva, based fundamental Nike Training Club exercises from workouts in the NTC+ app. And it wouldn’t be a ball workout if suicide sprints weren’t in the mix too.

All the pieces we wore for the early morning workout were super lightweight, breathable, and the tights had just the right amount of both stretch and coverage. A workout with both cross training and agility/speed drills needs the right pair of shoes. The Lunar Sculpt Training shoe has a form fitting upper that offers lightweight support and plus the lunarlon midsole provided the responsive cushioning we needed for the plyometric jumps during in the workout.

With her love and passion for fashion, coupled with consistent inquiries from both friends and strangers about how she stays fit, where she shops, eats, and travels to, Sasha finally decided to create So Sasha in October 2012. Apart from being a self-proclaimed fashion fanatic with a penchant for mixing luxe labels with budget finds, she is also a foodie (who loves organic, clean eating) and considers herself a "well-heeled" traveler...pun intended.
