Last week I attended the Nike Women’s Training Summit in Vancouver and got a sneak peak at the workout clothes and shoes that will be in stores this spring. One standout: these Nike Zoom Fly Sister One+ training shoes (look for them in stores the next month or so). They’re so light, I almost don’t feel them on my feet—and they’ll be available in five color combinations.
But my favorite part of the trip was meeting eight athletes who are vying for spots on various 2010 Winter Olympics teams. They demonstrated some of their favorite strength moves—to improve her balance, skier Julia Mancuso does squats while standing on a stability ball—and then two Nike trainers led my fellow magazine editors through an athlete-inspired workout. (I couldn’t participate because of my injury, but it looked tough!) Check out my photos from the event, and be sure to cheer on the women of the U.S. teams in February!
