On June 19th, MKTG INC and Nike showed NYC what it means to #TRAINFREE. 5 teams, each led by a Nike trainer, took to the streets of Brooklyn for high intensity workouts in some of BKs most iconic locations.

To kick off the night, the group headed to Brooklyn on their own Nike branded ferry, crossing the river as the sun begin to set on the NYC skyline. Celebrity trainer to the stars (Beyonce, Rihanna, and Alicia Keys to name a few), Ary Nunez, issued a challenge to the teams: earn more Fuel than your competitors. The teams took over Williamsburg Bridge, Brooklyn Bridge Park, Pearl Street Plaza and the Manhattan Bridge Archway decked out head-to-toe in Nike and the new Free Bionic shoe.

With 30 minutes of hard work behind them, the teams headed back over the river for an after party at Beauty and Essex. NY Giants RB David Wilson (best known for his back flip skills) met with the ladies and congratulated the winning team while the ladies ate, drank and danced the night away.

Beyoncé Bowl

So I’ve been a 49ers fan since I was a kid growing up in the Bay Area.  Who wouldnt’t be a fan when the team consisted of Joe Montana, Jerry Rice, Ronnie Lott and Roger Craig?  Of course, I’m excited to see the home team make it to the Super Bowl, but what I’m more excited about is this year’s half time performance by Beyoncé.  Now, I’m not a Beyoncé “stan” (obsessed fan), but I must say all the hype and promotion is making me look forward to what Queen Bey will bring to NOLA.

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve heard about Beyoncé’s infamous lip-syncing performance of the Star-Spangled Banner at the inauguration.  After horrible headlines (Beyoncé-gate…REALLY?!) and hilarious memes (Milli Vanilli comparisons), enough is enough. I think everyone would agree that she gave a great performance and could care less whether she lip-synced or sang live.

So, it’s not surprising that Beyoncé sang the national anthem a cappella during the NFL press conference. With that performance she squashed any doubts of her ability to sing and her love for America.  It was just another example “B” being a flawless performer, which I can attest to from witnessing her Roseland Ballroom concert for the album 4 where she was running across the stage and jumping on top of a piano all while belting out song after song (impressive? yes).

That being said, it will be exciting to see what’s in store for Sunday’s game. Will Beyoncé’s performance slay the stage? I’m pretty confident she will give people something to talk about leave them wanting more (oh wait, she’s announcing a tour soon!)–of course. But more importantly, will the Niners bring home their 6th Super Bowl ring (yes…count them!) home to the Bay? My money is on the Red and Gold.

Bonus: A little treat for my 49er’s fans.
