Fitness on the Big Screen
Through the Lens of Jed North
While it’s almost getting to that time of year… we still have a couple of weeks before we can start playing Mariah Carey’s Christmas album on repeat… or not, who am I to tell you what to listen to. BUT what I am going to tell you is what Netflix is currently streaming within the fitness world!
So saddle up in your favorite Oversize Tee/Joggers combo or in your brand new Plush-Knit outfit! And enjoy these thrilling movies/tv series that will get you captivated, inspired and most of all MOTIVATED!
The Last Dance
A documentary that took the world by storm… Showcasing one of the most popular athletes of his generation- well even this generation. The Michael Jordan era introduced us to one of the best teams in NBA history, and everlasting impact on the fashion industry, and a revolutionary turn to media as we know it. Though you might think you know MJ’s career, this will blow up that perception. A highly recommended watch, it will leave you wondering… How do the Jordan 1’s look with the Agile Shorts?
The Ronda Rousey Story: Through my Father’s Eyes
This story, a remarkable one, highlights the career and life of Ronda Rousey, a pro UFC fighter in the midst of it’s global expansion. In an industry dominated by male athletes, Ronda has trailblazed a path for young women to excel in pro mixed martial arts fighting and forever placed herself as one of the best female athletes ever. Also, how great would Ronda look holding the belt in the Supple Seamless set…
The Game Changers
First of all… just the executive producers list alone should make you want to watch this documentary (James Cameron, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jackie Chan, Lewis Hamilton, Novak Djokovic and Chris Paul)- But if you need more convincing here it is… Like you debating which Classic Stringer to wear to the gym, this documentary argues a case to substitute your protein based diet for a plant one, while still competing at the highest level. A fascinating film that will make you critically think about nutrition and the fitness industry as a whole!
These three films will likely not match the heart warming feeling of a corny Christmas movie, but will instead take you on a rollercoaster ride of emotions! The greatness of the these films is taking a look inside these high caliber athletes and movements to see what lies beneath what the media displays. The fitness world is a vast library of information that one can only continue learning about. These films are just the tip of the iceberg, and hopefully an introduction to our industries (Fashion and Fitness).
