Nike Pro Collection – Metcon 5

I was fortunate enough to attend the launch of the new Nike Pro collection at the 12x3 Gym in Paddington last week. Held by Nike’s team of elite trainers and experts, they guided us through a bespoke training session looking at technique. This showcased all the benefits of the new shoe the Metcon 5 and the Nike Pro apparel. First impressions are impressive to say the very least.

Several pieces of the new collection feature the Nike AeroAdapt technology, this is a new material made up of reactive yarn to keep you at the optimal temperature so that sweating, overheating or getting chilled won’t interfere with your workout. The ridges as seen on the back of my t-shirt illustrate the appearance of the tech.

The Metcon 5s have been given a refresh from the already successful Metcon 4. A wider heel has been added for improved stability during heavy squats, snatches, cleans and shoulder-to-shoulder movements. A Nike Hyperlift insert gives an additional 8mm lift for men and 6mm for women, to further improve stability and custom your workout gear. The dual-density drop-in midsole is softer and more flexible in the forefoot. This adds comfort and protection during high-impact moves like double-unders, box jumps, burpees and more. Available in 3 colours from launch including the Mat Fraser signature edition.

Nike are truly the innovators when it comes to training and the new collection further illustrates Nike commitment to this. For someone who has never used the latest training gear this is a game-changer.
