i wouldn’t group myself into the community manager field, but it is definitely part of what i do with my day job. when you interact on social media a lot of the day, you recognize and appreciate great brands and other fantastic community managers.
one i’ve had the pleasure of chatting with is Jonathan from ENERGYbits. when the brand launched he was knee deep in the healthy living community learning about his potential new partners and ambassadors. have you tried bits yet? those things will bring your performance to the next level.
not only does he talk the talk, Jonathan also walks the walk. the guy is a fitness junkie.
as community manager for ENERGYbits, a sports nutrition company, i’ve had plenty of experience to sample my fair share of fitness related apparel and products. i’m a (relatively) new runner but have been enjoying weight training and HIIT for the last several years as well. i’m currently training for my first marathon in the spring of 2014 and am an avid November Project “Tribe Member.” i’ve completed a Tough Mudder and can’t wait for my next one in the spring.
so, what’s in my gym bag?
a pair of Skora Running Core’s and Vibram Bikilas. i’m a fan of minimalist running and weight training, so these are my go-to shoes. Skora is very engaging and positive on social media – another reason i am happy to support them.
ENERGYbits! a whole foods source of fuel with just one ingredient that helps to boost endurance. loaded with protein, vitamins and minerals, these little bits will give you a healthy dose of endurance energy!
a pair of Yurbuds - these headphones are awesome. they sound great, and rarely fall out of my ears.
a pair of Oakley Livestrong Flak Jacket sunglasses. great pair of athletic sunglasses that have never fallen off my face due to sweat or even while kayaking/rafting.
CEP Compression socks. i wear these for running and as a bonus layer for cold runs. i forgot these for my November Project hill workout the other day and regretted it – they really help with calf soreness.
workout program – i keep track of my workouts on paper to track and record progress on my four-day program.
what about you? what’s in your gym bag?
