Samsung PowerFoam Challenge
Tough Mudder gets all participants dirty. Very, very dirty. But once you cross
the finish line, the Samsung PowerFoam challenge can help you get clean.
PowerFoam is tough enough to clean whatever dirt life throws at you.
Samsung’s Toughest Mudder
Meet Doug, a Samsung employee from Ontario who will be participating is every Tough Mudder event across the country. We had the opportunity to sit with Doug and learn a little bit more about how and why he’s Samsung’s Toughest Mudder.
Q: Did you do Tough Mudder last year? If yes, how many times? And where?
A: I did not participate in Tough Mudder last year but I was there showcasing the new WF/DV457 FL laundry pair at our booth. This will be my first crack at it as a participant.
Q: What is your current role with Samsung?
A: Formally, my title is: Assistant Manager Field Marketing – Digital Appliances. In English, that means I oversee the day-to-day events of the Field Marketing Reps in store across Canada, their schedules, audit their visits and essentially have them report to me.
Q: Do you have a family?
A: Single Dad, two kids. I live in a big ol’ farm house in a little town called Wilsonville, just south of Brantford.
Q: How often do you do laundry?
A: LOL, whenever I’m actually home for a few days at a time. If I’m home for a longer stint at a time, I would do 2-3 small loads a week.
Q: Do you invest in workout clothes? Is important for you to keep them clean?
A: I probably own over 100 workout shirts/shorts, a combination of long and short sleeves. Laundry for the lightweight, fast drying material is important because of its retention of sweat and breathability – as soon as I finish a workout it gets put in the hamper and awaits a wash. If you ask anyone from the office, I have to have my gear match one of my 40 pairs of kicks so I put the workout gear in regular rotation.
Q: What kind of work out regime do you keep to rise to the Tough Mudder challenge? How many hours a week to do you train?
A: Yoga, workout at home or in a hotel with various video workouts. Also cardio from running outside and on a treadmill, ice hockey 2-3X a week. I’ve been training everyday for the past 5-6 months, sometimes twice a day but each workout is never longer than 30-35 minutes at a time. Short and sweet is my motto…I like to exert and push myself during each workout. At first, I did it to lose weight and look good at the beach! Now, I do it to get functionally stronger and to perform – maybe skate faster, run quicker, become more flexible, etc. I don’t care really how I look or what the scale reads for my weight…(my friends and family tell me I look okay, though, LOL).
Q: Why are you doing Tough Mudder? What pushes you?
A: I turned 45 this year…I’m old! My kids push me and I want to inspire them as much as they motivate me. I work with a much younger group on my team and we take jabs at each other, so I want to show them that just because I’m old doesn’t mean I’ll be slowing down anytime soon. I love being challenged – I played competitive baseball, club and provincially, a little in the US, and now I love doing things that are new to me and will force me outside the box. Oh yeah, I’m as competitive as hell and I’m training for this so that I’ll walk away with that race ending beer with a big smile on my face and not look as though I’m about to pass out when the pix are being taken, LOL.
