Athleticism is more than dodging projectiles, wrangling mascots, and dropkicking a computer after it beats you in chess. Outfit yourself for adventure with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of footwear, apparel, and accessories at Sports 4 in Ottawa and Kanata.
Sports 4 equips athletes from an armoury of more than 15,000 pairs of shoes and apparel from brands such as Under Armour, New Balance, Adidas, and Mizuno. Precision shoe fitting forms the core of Sports 4's business, as trained employees identify a complementary fit for each customer through a battalion of foot measurements, individual gait analysis, and advanced ballet poses. Footwear is highlighted by an extensive selection of running shoes. Athletic apparel spans functional wear, including the men's Under Armour Battle T-shirt, a compression shirt that provides a supportive fit with anti-odour technology and heat-expunging vent zones ($44.98), and women's apparel, such as the New Balance fitness pant ($49.98), breezes between a morning of yoga and day of bricklaying. For pregame and postgame performance, grab a tub of Gu Brew laden with carbs and protein for workout recovery ($29.98), or stock up on Honey Stinger protein bars to bathe bloodstreams in muscle-building amino acids ($3.98).
