Imagine Setting Goals like These….How we Stay Motivated Living the SMACK! Life

If you’re not following SMACK! Media on Instagram what are you waiting for? Our team truly lives the lifestyle that our incredible clients represent from racing at the Olympic Trials, to hanging out with the best CrossFit athletes or taking our favorite gear to the tops of mountains. Our best ideas are not confined inside the office during the hours of 9-5–rather, we like to get inside the action with our clients, athletes and gear we represent. For a glimpse into the many ways that we SMACK! check out some of our recent Insta-highlights:

Olympic Trials–Both Stephanie and Natasha raced at their respective Olympic Trials this month (Natasha, Canada/5K and Steph USA/1500). We were beyond proud to watch them both compete on one of the biggest competition stages! Steph continued her season in Europe where she raced to a new mile personal best of 4:30!
