Ambassadors include Personal Trainer and Yoga Teacher Shona Vertue, presenter and fitness fanatic AJ Odudu, personal trainers Ben Camara and Richie Norton, lifestyle and fitness blogger Millie Cotton and running blogger Charlie Watson.

A dedicated New Balance hub has been created for the campaign and will be home to content from all of the brand’s ambassadors and experts, including how-to videos, tips and guides, under themes of Mindset, Speed, Stamina, Nutrition, Rest & Recovery and Strength.

The campaign will be supported by social media advertising across the company’s UK’s Instagram, Twitter and Facebook platforms. The campaign will supported by the hashtag #IAmTheCompetition to encourage user engagement.
