TRR Nutrition Launch Advanced Collagen Supplement

On 12th September 2019 we were invited to an exclusive breakfast with three-time Grand Slam champion Sir Andy Murray to launch the new TRR Nutrition Advanced Collagen Supplement.

A revolutionary, high-strength liquid sports nutrition supplement developed specifically for Wimbledon, US Open and Olympic champion, Andy Murray, is available for purchase by professional athletes and people who are serious about sport.

We gathered at the historic The Queen’s Club in West Kensington, London on a sunny Summer morning. The club hosts the prestigious annual Queen’s Club Championships grass court men’s lawn tennis tournament where Murray won the doubles tennis back in June, which was the first tournament he played since his well documented injury. 

In fine form, Murray explained that the TRR Nutrition Advanced Collagen Supplement was developed especially for him and he takes a cherry flavoured shot every morning before breakfast which could have aided his recovery.
Dr Eva Carneiro and TRR Managing Director Paul Davison were also on hand to explain the ins and outs of the supplement which has been formulated with key ingredients such as marine collagen, turmeric, glucosamine, hyaluronic acid and copper and vitamin C. These ingredients help support joint and bone health, the immune system and help with energy levels when training and resting.

Andy Murray has been using TRR as part of his daily diet routine for several months and says “After my hip operation, to get back to the highest level of fitness, I knew I would have to train incredibly hard and push my body. I wanted to leave no stone unturned. At the beginning of 2018 my nutritionist approached Nutraformis and asked them to develop a pro-athlete liquid collagen supplement with a combination of active nutrients specifically formulated for me. I was already taking their liquid collagen joint care supplement, but my nutritionist felt I needed an advanced product that would help to support my joints, bone health and immune system.” With his signature dry humour, Andy finished the preview breakfast with a nod to his recent accolade of Rear of the Year saying: ‘My wife has always told me I have a nice bum. I wasn’t expecting to win that award but it was nice.’ He also announced he was feeling confident enough in his body to enter October’s Shanghai Masters.

Where can I find some?

Initially developed for Andy Murray, the TRR Nutrition PRO Advanced Collagen Daily Liquid Supplement is now available for pro-athletes.

It costs £38.99 (box of 10 x 50ml bottles) and is available to purchase from www.trrnutrition.com 

adidas Originals Unbox Some Of Their Most Iconic Stories

Throughout this summer 2019 adidas is launching a variety of Home of Classics. At StylePilot we really like footwear. So, we couldn’t be more excited to try the Superstar 80s from the three stripes brand.

In adidas own words: “Viewed as a whole, Home of Classics is a documentation of some of adidas Originals’ most influential designs, and a true testament to the timelessness of the brand’s craftsmanship that provides longevity for the wearer, regardless of their choice of experience or expression”.

Inspiration

The Home of Classics collection is inspired by the brand’s 50 years of experience in craftsmanship, sport, and culture. You cannot avoid feeling the nostalgia browsing this collection.

Home of Classics is led by the Stan Smith, Continental 80 and the Superstar 80s. The lineup also features the Supercourt, Torsion Comp, S.C. Premiere and A.R. Trainer.

The collection is made up of 10 timeless, court-inspired silhouettes. adidas Originals is paying tribute to its lineage of classic white leather sneakers that has now transcended several generations.

The perfect spot

Finding a location to photoshoot the Superstar 80s was the next mission.

As the pair of Superstar 80s is black (and white), we decided to choose a surrounding to match them. We did find the perfect building a few meters away from London Bridge train station and the iconic Shard.

These shoes keep the look classic with a coated leather upper. They feature all the authentic details, including zigzag edging on the 3-Stripes and the signature rubber shell toe.

A discreet ‘Superstar’ signature above the famous three stripes!

A bit of history

This ’70s sneaker began life as a court-dominating B-ball shoe.

It wasn’t long before it was infiltrating the worlds of skateboarding and street style (not to mention the hip-hop main stage).

For decades, global creatives have regarded each sneaker as a blank canvas that carries them through experiences, granting the shoes greater meaning with every step. Symbolic of different stories and adventures, the Home of Classics collection has evolved through athletes, musicians, designers, style icons, and youth cultures alike that have re-interpreted each style to fit their lifestyle. Embracing how far people have taken, and will take, the brand’s timeless designs, the pack presents a line for the next generation of creators.

The sneakers are styled here with some black denim trousers from Belstaff, a leather jacket from Superdry and a white shirt from boohooMAN.

Specifications

  • Full grain leather upper for comfort and soft feel
  • Rubber cupsole; Synthetic leather lining
  • Logo on heel patch
  • Herringbone-pattern rubber outsole
  • Product code: C77124
Superstar Shoes: the sneaker with the shell toe!
A timeless design!

Everything You Always Wanted to Know About The “Do The Unthinkable Plan” (But Were Afraid to Ask)

It has now been 4 weeks since I have enrolled the “Do The Unthinkable Plan” by Muscle Food!! (I am actually at Day 29 and there are 90!).

How am I doing so far? Well, I have been loving it!

They claim it can be “life changing” and I cannot agree more.

So, what is this program about?

My personal goal was to find a perfect recipe to get in shape for the summer.

Do The Unthinkable™ is a program created by musclefood to transform your body and makes it easier to lose weight/get ripped or simply eat good, healthy food without the fuss. You meals are being prepared for you, so YOU don’t have to.

In their own words: “Getting in shape relies on eating the right meals!”.

There, you will find a combination of meals & snacks – and when to eat them – alongside a workout program.

It can sound a bit overwhelming but it’s all worth it. And don’t forget that preparation is key.

Step 1: Getting ready

Choosing the food from MuscleFood to get 6 meals a day is the easiest part!

Basically, you get ready to eat every three hours: 3 meals + 3 snacks!

Below my selection for the first week (Monday to Friday).

Step 2: The routine

Where the real sweat starts!

As your food is sorted – from morning to evening – you don’t have to think about what you eat. Basically you just eat what you have ordered! This is simple.

But this doesn’t stop there, you have now the workouts and the planning that goes with it.

In order to help you, every journey has a video (between 23 to 30 minutes). So, you can’t go wrong.

Just commit to do it!

That’s definitely the toughest part as you (I did) go out of your comfort zone. That said, I was up for the challenge and I never gave up.

How much does this cost?

It will cost between £60 to £79 per week. Respectively for 5 days (30 meal times) or for 7 days (42 meal times).

You do the maths: it’s from £1,88 to £2 per meal time.

The first noticeable results:

Even though it’s only been a month, I can say that only after 10 days I could already feel some changes operating. Not only did I feel better: since you only eat what you need, you never feel blotted. Also shape-wise it felt more tensed and getting into shape.

I am now hooked and I can’t wait to be at Day 90! On that day I will do a “After” photo that I will share alongside the “before” ! Yes, I will be getting out of my comfort zone.

Don’t waste any more time and have a go!

You won’t regret it!

All info regarding The Unthinkable Plan >> www.musclefood.com

A typical day

Let me share with you what a typical day looks like (6 meal times):

Basically, it looks like the following @ 7.30am: breakfast time, @10.30am: snack, @1.30pm: lunch, @4.30pm:snack, @7.30pm: evening meal and then @ 10.30pm: the last snack of the day.

A typical Meal (lunch)

The plan offers many varieties of meals: some of them just require to be heated (pictured below) however you can choose to do a bit of cook and then can follow a recipe – all proved in the plan.

Fell in love with those snacks 😉

They are yummy! And I am now almost addicted to them! As they are: High Protein / GMO Free / Gluten Free / Vegetarian / Wheat Free / No Added Sugar / Soy Free / All Natural / High in Fibre.
You can shop them from www.musclefood.com or from www.theproteinballco.com

One last thing!

Are cheat meals/days allowed?

A cheat meal is a single meal that veers from your planned diet pattern (while a cheat day allows for free food choices for an entire day).

Of course you can! They are actually recommended.

I, myself, have been craving for a beer (missed the taste of a great beer), so I decided to go for an alcohol-free beer as an all-natural alternative to my sports drinks.

In fact, alcohol-free beer is a natural isotonic and the perfect natural choice for pre and post workout (we’ve been told).

Made from four natural ingredients: barley, hops, yeast and water, St Peter’s Without® is a great fitness thirst-quencher, providing ultimate hydration and electrolyte replacements after exercise, as well giving your body back the vital salts and minerals that it releases during activity. They are 100% natural, vegan-friendly and contain fewer calories than an average beer.  And they taste yummy (tried last weekend!).

What’s next?

See you in 60 days!

The Nite Jogger by adidas

adidas has recently launched their New Nite Jogger sneakers and we were thrilled to be invited to try them on!

adidas Originals offers up new iterations of the Nite Jogger model, reinterpreting the iconic road running sneaker through another unmissable aesthetic update.

In adidas words: “The reflective silhouette returns to stake its claim as an essential for any night time creator, backed with a campaign created by a global network of artists working in their fields of expertise.”

So let’s have a closer look!

The “specs”

The new Nite Jogger sneakers feature lightweight nylon ripstop, soft mesh knit, and suede overlays. Combined, these materials offer advanced adaptability for the unrelenting grind of 24/7 creativity. Hi-vis reflective details complete the upper, adding a new dimension to the shoe’s name and establishing it as a must have in the arsenal of any creative that thrives at night.

The Nite Jogger sneaker is capped off by the message “speed of nite” written in Morse code on its outsole and tongue.

Offered in a flurry of distinct new colorways, featuring tonal greys, pastel greens, and eye-catching orange hits, the result is a striking expression of the Nite Jogger silhouette’s enduring aesthetic, presented in an exciting new context. So, it is love at first sight!

How did we style it?

Since the adidas Nite Jogger is strictly a fashion shoe and is not meant for performance (running, training, etc.) we had to take this on board before choosing on how to style it.

So, we headed south, to the London suburbs, to get those street styles shots.

The nite joggers are styled here with a sneaker suit adding ‘cool formality’ to the ‘sportiveness’ of the shoes.

Inspired by the 1980 Nite Jogger, these shoes shine bright with retro style and reflective details. The mesh and nylon ripstop upper is detailed with suede overlays. An updated Boost midsole adds responsive cushioning for all-day comfort.

Modern cushioning updates this flashy ’80s standout.

Retro Inspiration

The original 1980 Nite Jogger featured a distinctive look with a midsole insert and a fluorescent reflective heel tab and 3-Stripes.

The shoe are rounded off with a BOOST midsole and durable rubber outsole, resulting in a silhouette that is elevated for comfort and engineered for nighttime exploration.

What we liked

The concept: the rebirth of a star from the 80’s!

The look: materials, fabrics and the available colour scheme.

The feel: very comfy! (thanks to the multi layers of soles).

Our Verdict

A very nice – and must have – addition to your summer essentials!

Nike – Engineered Fleece Meets Engineered Knit

The huge Nike fans that we are at StylePilot have been lucky enough to try on their launched tech fleece. First thing we love is that there’s no need to be at the gym to wear it. It’s just great to have a smart item of casual wear.

This Season’s Take On Tech Pack

Nike’s Tech Fleece collection reimagines classic sportswear silhouettes by pairing Nike Tech Fleece with Nike Tech Knit for the first time. 

The collection’s classic crew and hoodie each feature a Tech Fleece body constructed of a pliable, lightweight layer plush foam situated between soft cotton jersey that traps air to provide warmth, breathability, insulation and articulation. 

Ergonomic zones are engineered into the fabric for flexibility and enhanced ventilation. High-use areas are subtly reinforced and core regions strategically knit for structural warmth.

This is engineered for warmth and designed to respond to its wearer’s environment and activity level while introducing a new, progressive aesthetic.

What About Those?

The Nike Roshe Two Flyknit – picture below and above – are a perfect fit. They are available in Black, White, Volt and Dark Grey.

Mesh is incorporated for breathability. Minimal seams and built-in stretch offer maximum comfort.

Nike Pro Hypercompression Tights

At StylePilot we are massive fans of Nike, and it’s always with great excitement to try out their latest garments. As spring has just started, what a better occasion than testing the Nike Pro Hypercompression tights.

To transform into the best you ever you have to train fast. Pick your sport, speed is the determining factor between success and failure.

Speed can be broken into different components – detection, reaction, acceleration, linear speed, change fo direction, agility, endurance. No matter what type of training you are training faster to become the best you ever.

The breathable Nike Pro Hypercompression Men’s Training Tights give you compressive support and freedom of movement during your toughest workouts.

Control vibration

Silicon-injected Hypercompression technology at the calves and quads offers targeted support, helping to reduce muscle vibration during high-intensity training.

Zero distraction: dry and lightweight stretch woven fabrication does not take on moisture.

Stay cool

Smooth, warp-knit mesh panels in high-heat zones enhance airflow where you need it most, helping you stay cool when your workout heats up.

Ventilation: breathable stretch mesh allows for heat to escape.

Move freely

The tights’ woven fabric offers four-way stretch, giving you the natural mobility you need for lifting, cardio or plyometric drills.

Zoned compression: injected silicon provides lockdown in strategic muscle groups for a coiled and compact feel.

More details: Dri-FIT Technology helps keep you dry and comfortable. Elastic waistband for a comfortable fit | Elastic waistband for a comfortable fit | Flat seams feel smooth against your skin | Fabric: Body: Dri-FIT 84% polyester/16% elastane. Mesh/mesh lining: Dri-FIT 77% polyester/23% elastane | Machine wash

Tips on how to put your compression garments on

Those are designed to be tight fitting and as such you should take care when putting them on to prevent damage to any part of the item. We would recommend taking your time and don’t force larger limbs through small openings whilst the materials used compression clothing do possess excellent elasticity qualities. Be especially careful with the clothing gripping areas which are always slightly less stretchy. It is often easier to progressively pull the clothing into place rather than try and get it on in a single movement. Enjoy 😉

New Year’s (Sports) Resolutions

According to one commonly cited statistic only 8% of everyone actually keep their New Year’s resolutions! So, for all the good intentions only a tiny fraction of us keep our resolutions.
Let’s keep it simple and let’s keep the resolution list short!

For now let’s focus on sport: a healthy body for a healthy mind! And before we hit the gym, let’s look out for the best sport gear!

Lucky us, for this season SuperdrySport has thought of it all. Their range focuses on the finer details and product technicalities whilst continuing the brand’s celebration of self-expression and empowerment.
