Reebok CrossFit Nano 3.0 Review

Happy Friday! My Reebok order came in over the weekend and, as promised in last week's post, here's a review of what I got.   

CrossFit Nano 3.0

Reebok CrossFit Nano 3.0 Review | Eat Hard Work Hard

As I mentioned before, these are my first pair of training shoes, so I don't have a lot to compare them with, but I am really loving the Nano 3.0s so far! I wore them for my HIIT sessions Tuesday and Thursday, as well as during my upper body lifting day Wednesday and can definitely say they are a vast improvement over my old volleyball shoes.

Pros:

Weight - The Nano 3.0s are a lot lighter weight and lower profile than I expected from the reviews. They also seem like they would squish into a suitcase well, which is great since they are a good all around shoe to have with you while traveling.

Support - Despite being very light weight, the sole felt much sturdier than my minimalist running shoes and there was a lot more stability for lateral movements and plyos. My feet especially appreciated the difference during the weighted ski jumps, split lunge jumps, and hops in the Blogilates Pop HIIT 6 I did Thursday (soooo much jumping in this one!). 

Comfort - I really love the wide toe box, which is something I hear is common to all the Nano models. I hate having my toes pinched, and really appreciated the extra room!

Style - The color options are fairly limited, but I really love the neon yellow and blue combo. Already found one outfit in my closet that matches really well and know I have a lot more :)

Cons:

Cushion - Even though these are fairly cushy for how light they are, I think I just expect cross trainers to have a little more cushion. I tried on a pair of on-sale Nike In-Season TR's that I didn't end up getting because they were too big, and the memory foam liner was just so cushy and comfortable. I have since read reviews that the foam doesn't provide enough support for high impact moves, though, so maybe that's the trade-off.

Cost - To me, $120 is a very expensive shoe. In fact, I am not sure if I have ever spent that much on any individual pair of shoes, ever. But I then I am super cheap and troll Zappos, DSW, and the outlets for deals like it's my job. So I probably wouldn't have bought these shoes if I hadn't won the gift card, but I am probably not the best judge of whether or not they are worth the price.

Bottom Line:

I really love these shoes. They are a great all-around training shoe that work well for lifting, plyos, and short cardio bursts. They are a little on the pricey side, but I would highly recommend them if you have the cash for a quality pair of trainers.

Unfortunately, the sports bra and shorts I ordered are too big. I guess I am a small now. (Whoa never thought I would ever say that! Didn't really need to go down a bra size though. Too bad the things you would rather NOT shrink are always the first to go during weight loss...) So I'm going to try to do an exchange and will provide feedback on that process and the performance of the clothes one I get the right sizes.

Disclosure: I received this gift card from a Workout Mommy giveaway sponsored by Reebok. I am not affiliated with Reebok, was not compensated for this post, and if you buy something at Reebok I won't get any money for it. Reebok doesn't even know who I am. So if I sound overly excited, it's just because I really like winning things. And new clothes :)

  1. Hey Amanda. It's nice to read a review from a "normal" person and not a CrossFit junkie (no offense). As you detailed, these are geared more towards being very stable and less running friendly. I'm surprised you found them to be light, that is my biggest complaint - they feel a little too heavy to me.

    If any of your readers are interested in a stoopid long review on these, I wrote one up that can be read here: Nano 3.0 Review

    So yea, I hope the review is helpful. Stay dedicated and don't shrink too much in those... ya know, um... areas.

    1. Hey Rob! Thanks for the great feedback :) I've been traveling for work so I just got a chance to check out your review. Really thorough and helpful!

      Definitely agree with you about the running performance. These are the only athletic shoes I brought on this trip and they are not the most fun on the treadmill. I guess in terms of weight I don't have a lot to compare them too since these are my first pair of "real" trainers, but they definitely seem lighter than the volleyball shoes I normally use for cross-training.

      Will definitely check out your other reviews when I am in the market for new kicks. Speaking of which, any trail runner recommendations? Doing an obstacle race in March (my first ever. eek!) and will be in the market for shoes when I start training soon.

  5. It's a mistake to use the wrong kinds of shoes for different sports. This is not only very unwise but unsafe, as well. Take the case of crossfit. We need shoes specifically for crossfit activities and the my personal favorites are the Reebok Men’s R Crossfit Nano 5 and the Men’s Metcon 1.

  24. Rapid Tone Scam or Not Therefore, since fat contains only about 10-40% water, when the body moves into the fat burning phase of a weight loss program, the bathroom scale tends to be much slower than when glycogen was being burnt for energy at the beginning of the diet.

  25. Rapid Tone Scam or Not Actually, the natural course of weight loss is to experience a quick loss of weight resulting from the loss of water from body tissues which is then subsequently followed by a significant slowdown in fat loss as the body now switches to burning its fat stores to meet it energy needs

  26. Rapid Tone Scam or Not Therefore when a diet plan or some other fat reduction program claims to have the ability to help you lose as much as 10-30 pounds of body weight within a questionable period of time, say 1 week, you now have an idea of what you are up against. You simply can't burn fat that easily, instead you will be losing your body water.

    After experiencing the initial rapid weight loss, it is too often the case that a lot of dieters who make use of such quick fat reduction products find that they simply start losing hope as their fat loss rate almost always grinds to a snail pace. And while it might be great if all the bodyweight reduction experienced during the initial phase of the diet program was actually from body fat, the fact is that this is not the case.

    Studies show that most patients that undergo weight-loss surgery will lose between 50-70% of their excess body weight within the first three years following their procedure. Those that undergo gastric bypass surgery will lose excess body weight more rapidly in the first 12 months than those that choose LAP-BAND surgery. However, gastric bypass patients typically experience a greater number of complications and side effects than LAP-BAND patients, as the LAP-BAND procedure allows for more gradual and natural long-term weight loss.
