Blog Post by Chris Jenkins – Multiple IFBB Title Holder
OK so this is my first blog as an Activewear Online athlete, actually this is my first blog EVER. I’m stoked to now be a part of this amazing team, not just because of the talent that surrounds me, but also because of the awesome brands that Activewear Online have!
Long before I joined the Activewear Online team I was huge fan of GASP and Better Bodies!!! Now you might think that sounds crazy, but for anyone who trains their ass off day in and day out, they know that even the smallest thing can help! When I throw on a GASP singlet, the way it makes me feel and the way it makes me look, I know I’m going to have an all out gut-busting workout! The basketball legend Michael Jordan used to wear a brand new pair of shoes for every game because he always felt so good wearing a new pair of shoes! Now I’m not saying you need a new singlet or training shirt for every workout, but you can see that the comfort of wearing something that makes you feel and look better is only going to have a good impact on your training!
So here I am typing my first ever blog, it reminds of school, only this time ill actually hand my homework in, and I also won’t use capitals!
So where did it all start for me? Well this goes back to 1989, my first ever day at the gym, I was 3 years old and spent the day with my uncle. My uncle wasn’t a bodybuilder, but he enjoyed training and regularly went to the gym. For some reason, unknown to me, he thought it was a good idea to sneak a workout in while I was with him. So here I am ready for my first day at the gym, no t-shirt on, blue and yellow short shorts, and long blond mullet! My poor uncle had not thought this through! The poor guy is trying to train, and I am parading around the gym flexing at the other gym members trying to train! Then I’m yelling out “look at me Unc, look at me” followed by several loud crashes and bangs! Needless to say I think I may have worn out my welcome at that gym at very young age! I wouldn’t step back in a gym for nearly 17 years, but that’s a story for another day.
I’d like to take the opportunity to let everyone know right now that the mullet has now gone, and that I only parade around the gym flexing at other gym members once in a blue moon! And thanks to the awesome gear from Activewear Online, I now wear a GASP Vintage T-Back and the old yellow and blue short shorts have been upgraded to the GASP Black US Mesh training shorts! Can’t wait for the next 12 months with Activewear Online… Big things ahead!
