Adidas women sponsored a beach workout event which brought together the athletic community in NYC. This all day event included sailing from the North Marina in Tribeca to a private beach in Brooklyn. It was picturesque to say the least. We enjoyed views of the Statue of Liberty and One World Trade Center while sipping on wine and eating lobster rolls. Who could complain? Furthermore we got the opportunity to network with likeminded women.
The beach workout was instructed by Jaws Nelson an Adidas brand ambassador. It was a full body HIIT workout which left us all drained at the end. Nonetheless, it was a great day filled with laughter and good vibes.
Moral of the story: surround yourself with likeminded people and watch the magic flow. That is exactly what I did this summer. If you start having different interest than your friends get new ones. Connect with people that share the same hobbies or values as you do. To be clear this does not mean drop your old best friends. However, if they don’t share your vision or hold you accountable for your goals – get moving! Real friends will always be there no matter what. No one can replace your best friends. But its important to build relationships with people in your profession and areas of interest.
