Jordan Kelch's Bio

Pacific Northwest born, Southern raised, Midwest education but decided to head West after graduation. Utah was calling and I had to find out why so my rescue pup, Duke, and I packed up the Subaru and drove to Salt Lake City. No matter where I am though, you'll find me running. I ran cross country and track in college but the elevation and steep mountains in Utah are teaching me to slow down and enjoy the scenery. My favorite brands are Brooks and Patagonia. You'll never see me without my Garmin watch on and I really appreciate a good pair of socks!

Well Done Altra
5 5

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size
Height: 5' 4"
Weight: 125 lbs

I was about to give up on Altra until I found the Timps! Not as sloppy as the Lone Peaks and not as chunky as the Olympus. Same roomy toe box but I like that these shoes have a little more structure to them. Super comfortable right out of the box. I'm still not sure if zero drop is right for me but I really like having these shoes in my arsenal. Please don't hesitate to call or email me with questions or just to talk about running.

I could have spent a little less money on a plain bolster but the Indigo Ikat is so darn cute! And, it won't get confused with someone elses at the studio. I got the Manduka recycled foam blocks in seafoam to go with it and I couldn't be more excited about my little yoga set up! I've always had to lay in savasana with my knees bent because I have lower back issues and the floor hurts my tail bone even with a mat. I recently joined a new gym and the instructor must have noticed me always bending my legs so one day she came by and slid a bolster under my knees. It was amazing! I realized that day that I've never truly experienced the power of savasana! I was in a whole different world! I was able to relax and really let go of all my muscles. I'm obsessed with bolsters now. I wish I had known more about them years ago. I even use it at home when I'm watching TV. I place it under my knees for relief on my lower back and knees. Take your practice to a new level and try out a bolster!

These blocks are exactly what they say they are. I got my own after we were supposed to put our faces on some blocks at the gym and all I could think of was staph infection! I used to be too competitive to use blocks but a recent injury has made me realize how amazing, helpful and therapeutic blocks can be. I really like to do yoga with Adriene in my living room so I got the Hugger Mugger bolster and some blocks and now I have the whole set up. Don't be afraid to love and use your blocks!

I'm obsessed with yoga and I'm obsessed with seafoam! I could have gotten these a lot cheaper somewhere else but they wouldn't be as high quality and they wouldn't be seafoam! I got them to go with my new Hugger Mugger Indigo bolster and I'm so happy.

I love Balega. I've worked in the running world for years now and have never heard of anyone having issues with Balega. I got these for my dad to golf in. He's obsessed now. The feel, the fit and the quality is top notch. You'll get over the price once you try them on!

Super soft, flattering fit and versatile. I love this top because it's great for working out but it's also cute as a casual tank top. I've worn it on the elliptical machine but also with sandals and jean shorts. I'm really happy with the length too. I have a hard time finding tank tops that aren't as long as my shorts. This one hits me right where it should. If I were to be super critical, I'd say the material is not the best for hot or high intensity work outs. If you sweat a lot, this top is not for you. It gets soaked and it's obvious and it's not quick dry material.

Love these shorts! The length, the color, the waistband, they're perfect! I just wanted some cute but comfy shorts for the summer and these are exactly that. I'm over jean shorts and uncomfortable buttons and buckles. The fabric on these is soft and washes well. You can't go wrong with Kavu.

Oh man... I love the color of these shorts and the waistband is so comfy but I can't even just wear these around town without getting a wedgie every step I take. I really wanted them for running. I ran in them once and it was miserable. I had to pull at the liner every couple of minutes. After that I figured I'd just wear them casually but even just walking around town I get wedgies! The liner doesn't stay in place at all. They're also shorter than they look in the picture. I really wish they had worked out. I love the teal color and the fabric is awesome.

I love this shirt! I was really hesitant to buy a white shirt but the fabric is really thick. I don't get any bra lines or feel like it's uncomfortably sheer. It's just the right amount of slouch and I really love the length of the sleeves. They're not your typical womens shirt capped sleeves. I love everything about this top. I might get one in every color...

I have a lot of Asics gear from college so I was pretty confident I was small since everything I own from them is a small. These things though looked like little girls bras! They were so tiny! I could get them on but I was definitely not comfortable and I didn't like the shape of the cups. If you're going to try these out order a size up from what you're used to.

Perfect Gym Shoe

This is my favorite gym shoe! If you're looking for an all around work out shoe, this is a great option! I wear it for short runs, on the elliptical and I love the flexibility for circuits and weight training. The cushioning is super comfy too. I have really bad plantar fasciitis and I slightly over pronate so I wouldn't wear this as my daily running shoe but I have worn it on 2-3 mile runs and haven't had any pain. Because it's such a flexible shoe, I don't want to risk running more than that. But, I've worn it for up to an hour and a half on the elliptical and I absolutely love it for all gym activities. The boost foam feels great for jumping exercises like box jumps or jump roping because it really absorbs the impact for you.

These pants are so comfortable. The waistband is comfortable and the fabric is soft. It's not clingy so you don't have to worry about underwear lines. My only complaint is that the band around the calf is a little too tight. I don't think that I have big calves so I imagine someone with really muscular calves would be uncomfortable.
