Michael Phelps & Kevin Plank Under Armour at CES Inspire World in Fitness Tech


Technology




#IWILL

Of the many thrilling tech experiences, a high point for me and many other CES 2017 attendees was the Friday keynote with Under Armour CEO & Founder Kevin Plank along with a special appearance by the greatest USA Olympian of all time, swimmer Michael Phelps.




I have a special connection with Plank, in particular. Three of my four kids are Terps now at University of Maryland in College Park, Plank's alma mater.



Olympic super star Phelps stars in Under Armour's award-winning TV commercial voted Best of the Year by Adweek Magazine.



Stay with this footage I shot at this CES keynote. Following the commercial itself, you'll see and hear direct from Plank and Phelps about the common force that drives them both: being fearless (which happens to be every Terp's mantra), striving for excellence and being passionate about fitness enhancing technologies.



Just to be in the same room with two guys who inspire me personally every day in fitness and tech as well as an entrepreneur was an amazing feeling that cannot be easily translated into words.




Stay tuned for live MommyBlogExpert updates from CES 2017 via social through Sunday.
