PUMA men’s global training ambassador and four-time FIA Formula One™ World Champion Lewis Hamilton shared his training secrets with Arsenal full-back and fellow PUMA ambassador Hector Bellerin at an event for the 2018 spring-summer 24/7 collection and IGNITE FLASH evoKNIT shoe.
Hamilton and Bellerin challenged each other to a low-intensity circuit incorporating box jumps, battle ropes and Muay Thai boxing before taking to the rooftop of the Old Truman Brewery to talk about the meaning of their tattoo’s.
Lewis Hamilton said: “Training is one of the most important aspects of my life. Being amongst the world’s fastest like Hector means I’m hustling 24/7, it’s great to meet guys from the PUMA family to see if there’s anything that we can learn from each other and exchange tips to become even better athletes.”
Hector Bellerin said: “It was cool to hang with Lewis today and hear how he trains, he’s in great shape and I’m amazed at how extensive his training is. Given the length of a 50-60 lap race, he was telling me how his V02 max (maximal aerobic capacity) is similar to a Premier League footballer.”
