As you might have already heard, each week we are talking about another of the stars of the Under Armour unlike any campaign. This week it’s the turn of Zoe Zhang, Taekwondo black belt and actress.
This video shows strength and poise from someone who was a national champion but forced retire after suffering from an injury. Since then she has fought her way back to become one of China’s most famous actresses who specialises in martial arts.
I especially love the poem in this video as I think we can all relate to it in some way, especially the second half.
"I fight against those who dismiss me,
and my potential.
I fight in my own way,
so I will rise above all."
The whole theme of the campaign is overcoming obstacles, recognising feats of strength and becoming the best we can possible be and this section of the poem really reminds me of that. When I started to think about which athlete I was inspired by the most, I felt like Zoe had to be my pick. Before this campaign, I wasn't aware of Zoe, but her story and the poem are quite relatable.
For me, when I work out, the clothes are a really important part of my routine. A new top or pair of trainers can make all the difference when I am looking to take on a new challenge. From spin class to rock climbing, I always feel a little confidence boost when I have some brand new kit.
This look from Under Armour is the perfect combination of comfort and performance and I can picture wearing it for everything from yoga to lifting weights in the gym. I am always looking for sports stuff that makes me feel great whilst still being practical and these pieces from Under Armour are perfect.
