#IWillWhatIWant with Under Armour

Under Armour has long been one of my favorite fitness brands. I have a drawer full of it, most of it snagged from former boyfriends (but that can be our little secret). So when I was invited to participate in a high-intensity rooftop workout led by Natalie Uhling (NUfit) as part of the Under Armour IWillWhatIWant campaign, I was thrilled!!


I Will What I Want is ‘a reminder that you don’t need permission, advice or affirmation when you have WILL. It’s a celebration of who you are. As an athlete. As a woman. As everything in between and beyond.’ Perhaps you’re familiar with the campaign that features female athletes including downhill skier Lindsey Vonn, pro tennis player Sloane Stephens and ballerina Misty Copeland. Have you seen Misty’s commercial? Amazing!

The latest addition to the I Will What I Want universe is Gisele Bundchen and her inclusion alongside the ranks of these elite athletes does not come without controversy. Check out her commercial to see what I mean.


No matter who they choose as inspiration (though I do adore Misty), I love the concept of I Will What I Want! The simple message being, your will trumps all! It was Abraham Lincoln who said, ‘you can have anything you want if you want it badly enough.’ Same thing! And as for the rooftop workout, you had to really want it because Miss Natalie put us through our paces! Under Armour outfitted us all from head to toe and the NUfit creator certainly made us work for it!

Working Out With Under Armour

High-intensity NUfit rooftop workout with Natalie Uhling.
Some of us (who shall remain nameless) retreated to the snack table a little before the end of the workout but who could blame us them? Some of us them weren’t entirely prepared for the highness of the high-intensity workout and…there was sushi and veggies and Prosecco waiting.

After the sweating, we watched the launch of the Gisele spot, mingled and made new friends.

  1. Whenever I watch the ballerina video I get really emotional. It's beautifully made and sends the perfect message. No matter what people say you can't do, as long as you want it bad enough you can get it. Wish I had been there, would have gone to the sushi bar too with you..I mean them 😛

  2. That workout looks like it was a blast! I adore my Under Armour gear, especially my shoes. & I have to say, Gisele's commercial, is pretty powerful!

  3. At least they put healthy food on the snack table, lol! It does look like a great event!

  4. Love the phrase, and man that girl sure has muscles on her muscles. Fantastic Post… thanks for sharing.

  5. looks like great fun! I thought about hitting up the under armor outlet by us for my tween nephews for Christmas this year.

  6. Looks like an awesome event. I am glad you had a wonderful time. I would love to do something like this. Thanks for sharing.

  7. I always thought it was a men's line, namely underwear, for some reason. That's great that they make workout clothing for women, too!

  8. Sounds like a fun event! It's also a great reminder that sometimes you need to do for yourself.

  9. Misty Copeland is amazing on so many levels and you guys are too funny sneaking over to the snacks…I saw Ty on here, I won't assume she was the ring leader. lol Thanks so much for sharing such an inspirational post.

  10. Looks like a fun (and sweaty) experience. lol. I love Under Armour gear. I WILL make myself work out today!

  11. What a cool event you got to attend! We are big fans of under armour in this house. I'm washing some right now actually 🙂

  12. Oh wow, she really did make you all do a tough workout. I think I would have snuck off to the snacks a wee bit early too. 😉

  13. Be proud of who you are! You can't get what you want without acting on it so make it happen!

  14. My boyfriend is also a fan of Under Armour. Too bad that we don't have a vast collection of those products available here for women.

  15. Looks like a lot of fun! I love the outfits! Those shirts are too cute!

  16. awesome event put on my them! They really do have some great clothes.. i have a few pairs to work out in.

  17. I just began working with a personal trainer to get in shape and it is really hard!! IT does take 100% WILL to get there and complete the workouts when you are tired, busy, weak…whatever roadblock is in the way. I am excited about this campaign!!! I want to get the shirt with the logo on it to wear to my gym 🙂

    1. Good luck with your workouts! I think it's great that you have a trainer because they do make it easier to stick with it. Accountability and all that!

  18. Congrats on the fun event! Awesome! I love the shot of your hair too! That cracks me up. Their clothes are so great!

  19. That sounds like a fun event! I love UA…especially in winter months.

  20. Looks like you all had fun. I do have some Under Armour fr the gym. Oh, you hung out with Christen of Divas and Dorks…. cool… she's a long time web design client of mine.

  21. I love Under Armour. I wear their workout clothes myself, and I buy them for my kids. Nothing else works quite like it. They have a great product!

  22. What an AWESOME event, congrats on getting to attend (lucky!) I love Under Armour, it's so comfortable (and cute!) <3

  23. What a cool event – I wonder if they had one in Baltimore? They are based here.

  24. What a great promotion and event. I love Under Armour clothes- they have great stuff for undergear when I am playing hockey!
