SHOES

I use Asics Gel-Nimbus for every training run. I have used Asics since college, and absolutely love the brand. They use a special gel insert that makes running in them super comfortable. 

I use the Vibram Five Fingers ELX exclusively when I am in the gym. They have quickly become my go-to shoe to do bodyweight or weightlifting exercises.

For my half marathon racing shoe, I use the Go Meb Speedcross 3, which I have found to be an amazing shoe. Lightweight but supportive, this shoe has gotten me through a number of incredibly tough races. 

For Obstacle Course Racing, I use Reebok All-Terrain series. They have everything I’m looking for – lightweight, fast, they drain quickly, mud doesn’t stick to them, they have fantastic tread, and they have tread on the sides of the shoes to assist with obstacles like the rope climb and traverse wall.

SOCKS

I will always race in MUDGEAR socks, either low cut or full length depending on the weather, for any mud run or obstacle course. I’ve raced numerous distances in these and have found them to always to do exactly what I want – not retain water, dry quickly, and make sure my feet don’t blister.

I am a big fan of Injinji's Run 2.0 Lightweight Socks whenever I wear my Vibrams. They keep the shoe smelling nicely, and are incredibly comfortable. 

SHORTS

For training, I exclusively use HYLETE shorts. I absolutely love the pocket where my phone can fit. I can run, do box jumps, lift… really do anything and the phone will stay in the exact place I want it to. There is no worrying that the phone will slide, slip, come out of the pocket, or move around and be a distraction during your workout.

Shirts:

I will wear a variety of shirts for daily work outs. However, I absolutely love HYLETE shirts.

During races, I'm wearing MUDGEAR's Racing Jersey . I absolutely love this racing jersey.

 

Headband:

My wife, Amanda , is a huge fan of headbands. I used to play hockey and was a goalie, and absolutely loved Daniel Berthiaume  , who was known as ‘The Bandit’ for wearing a bandana, growing up as a kid. As a result, I wear HYLETE’s tie-headband for all of my workouts and races that don’t require me to wear a headband, such as Spartan Races.

Supplements:

I exclusively use Garden of Life supplements. I have found that I absolutely love these.

Specifically, I use Garden of Life Raw Meal for a daily meal. Depending on the day and what I’m doing, it’ll either be lunch or dinner.

I also use Garden of Life Perfect Food Raw to make sure I’m getting all of the plant-based nutrients I need to get.
