On Thursday, July 17th, UFC Lightweight Champion and Reebok athlete, Anthony Pettis took a select group through an intense speed and agility workout, modeled after his own dry land training along the East River bike path in NYC.
As Anthony is prepping to defend his title in December, he understands how important raw, explosive speed can be, which is why he’s been training in the brand new Reebok ZJET. Like the way the jet engine blast is created by moving air from high to low-pressure compartments, the new ZJET enhances your running by moving trapped air in an underfoot current for maximum cushioning. Paired with extreme flexibility and Nanoweb upper construction for stability, the ZJET is the ultimate in maximum cushioning providing unsurpassed comfort and quickness so you can jet up or down the open road.
Reebok ZJET is now available at Finish Line and Reebok.com, and retails for $130.

ExxonMobil is giving fans a chance to choose the helmet design that Tony Stewart, driver of the No. 14 Mobil 1/Bass Pro Shops Chevrolet SS, will wear for the Pure Michigan 400 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race on Aug. 17, 2014. The lucky winner will get to keep the newly designed helmet after the race.
Fans can visit the Mobil 1 Facebook page now through July 25, 2014 to view and vote for their favorites from five designs created by Stewart-Haas Racing. Participants will be allowed to cast one vote per day, and each vote will be an entry for a chance to win a chance to attend the Pure Michigan 400 with a friend.
“For many drivers, our helmet is something we take a lot of pride in,” said Stewart. “I have a helmet collection of my own, so I’m helping give fans a chance to start their own collection. I know my fans have good taste and I can’t wait to see what design they pick.”
The winning helmet design will be unveiled on the Facebook page on Mon., July 28, and the lucky sweepstakes winner will be announced soon after.
Helmet designs and styles have a storied history in the sport. The first helmets used by NASCAR drivers were of a design called a Cromwell, which basically looked like a hardhat attached over the ears and under the chin with a leather strap. Today, drivers’ helmets are brightly painted to promote sponsors, teams and special events – and resemble vibrant works of art.

Tom Cleverley is a highly-rated young midfielder who has made giant strides towards establishing himself as a regular for both club and country. The Basingstoke-born youngster rose through Manchester United’s youth system to become interim Reserves captain, and was nominated for the prestigious Denzil Haroun Reserve Player of the Year award in 2007/08.
Manchester United has announced that its 2014 Tour, presented by Aon, will take place in the United States. The team will visit a number of destinations in the country as they look to prepare for the 2014/15 season. This will be the team’s first visit to North America following two successful back-to-back tours in 2010 and 2011.
Manchester United Group Managing Director, Richard Arnold, said: “I’m delighted to announce that the team will be returning to the USA for our 2014 Tour, presented by Aon. “Since the Club’s last visit in 2011, the appeal of football in America has grown rapidly. NBC reported that this season’s Barclays Premier League opening weekend saw the average viewership rise by 78% from the 2012/13 season*, with Manchester United’s match against Swansea being the most-watched game.”
I was able to chat with Tom about football, his team’s tour in the United States, and which players he looked up to while he was growing up. To listen to the interview click here. You can purchase tickets to the games here in the states HERE!
