I hope you are having a great Thanksgiving week 🙂 Brian’s family comes into town today and we cannot wait to get this holiday family party started 🙂
Now, it’s no secret that as a healthy living blogger I get to try some pretty awesome shoes, clothes, products, etc, but this time things are a little bit different…BRIAN actually is writing the review today about the brand new Saucony Triumph ISO.
So, without further ado….take it away Brian!
Hi Treble in the Kitchen readers! After years of being behind the scenes of #TITK (expert blog photographer/recipe taster/work out buddy), here is my debut entry on the blog. Lets see how this goes…
Over the years, I have been used to Tara getting goodies to try out for the blog, so when I heard that for the first time I was going to get to try out a new product, I was stoked. As many of you may know from reading the blog, I am not quit as in to health and fitness as Tara (not that that is even possible). With time, and lots of positive peer pressure, she has helped me make working out and eating healthy part of my routine, and I am very grateful for that. But that doesn’t mean I don’t LOVE binge watching Netflix and inhaling take out pizza. Anyways, back to the shoes. I received the new Triumph ISO Series by Saucony and my first reaction was “WHOA!” (Just look at the box)
As a relative newbie to the fitness world, I do not really know what I am looking for in a performance shoe, but cool colors do help.
I tried these bad boys on and immediately noticed how much more support they gave me than my previous shoes offered (the old shoes were very comfortable, but comparable to house slippers when it came to support). This was a good first sign. They were also very cushioned, but not in a bad way. More of in a “I think I could run a 5k right now and feel great” kind of way (not that I would do that on such short notice, but you know).
According to Saucony, “by combining a plush inner fit sleeve with a flexible external cage, ISOFIT technology provides a system that dynamically adapts to each individual part of the foot”. Well that is no joke. The shoes feel custom made (but remember, I’m no shoe expert, so take that with a grain of salt).
Long story short: I love them. They look cool, which is probably the most important part when you’re a poser fitness guru like myself, feel great, are super light (10.5oz) and will be GREAT shoes for the Turkey Trot here in Denver on Thanksgiving! Hope you all enjoy this shoe as much as I have. -Brian
Now for a workout! To showcase just how awesome these shoes are, I created a workout focusing on cardio and core (ab) movements that use only bodyweight exercises. That means this is another great exercise to pin for later and keep on hand for times when a gym/equipment isn’t handy!
As always, please make sure to talk with your doc before making any major changes in your exercise routine and modify as needed!
This is a tabata workout, so each exercise is performed for eight rounds of 20 seconds with a 10 second rest in between each round.

Wow, this guy looks so fit and energetic about exercise! What a man, Tara 😉 Love the contrast of the colorful shoes and the black high socks – I think that’s going to be a new trend for 2015 led by Dr. Rochford.
P.S. Love the side plank with knee lift – that looks killer.
Yay! Go Brian!! Awesome review! You’re a natural just like Tara! Have a wonderful Thanksgiving you two! 🙂
Thanks, Julie! Happy Thanksgiving!
