Big Air Bootcamp
Last month, I was invited to a boot camp during the Polartec Big Air event at Fenway Park. If you are not from Boston, imagine your local baseball stadium with a ramp that rises over 140 feet! That is higher than the light towers in Fenway! Now imagine going inside and working out with a view of the ramp!
It was pretty amazing entering the venue and being able to take a peek of what was soon going to happen. Fenway Park, the host for one of Boston's favorite teams was transformed into an amazing skiing/snowboarding venue. We had the chance to see the jump being tested, one after another coming up and down the ramp. To me, it all looked pretty crazy. I am not a skier or snowboarder, in fact, I have tried it once and it was a fail, BIG time. So yes, I was pretty impressed.
Polartec, as the main sponsor, gave us the opportunity to try out some of their newest fabric technologies. Let me tell you, it was an experience. They took us to the visitor locker rooms, yes, those locker rooms where the big baseball stars hang out. I was already pretty impressed by it. Just imagine who has passed through it since 1912.
We got three pieces of clothing featuring three of Polartec’s fabrics that are perfect for cold-weather.
Last but not least, the Strafe Alpha Mid Jacket featuring Polartec Alpha, this jacket is not only really cute looking, but is designed to provide the warmth-without-weight and weather resistance of a light puffy, with the breathability of a midlayer for comfort throughout a wide range of conditions. Basically, perfect for anytime of the year.
Beantown bootcamp made us break a sweat in a 45 min. circuit training sesh. The combination of a high-intensity workout while wearing Polartec gear was perfect for testing it out.
