Kamilla Manzarek

I’m a retired Olympic fencer, silver medalist of London 2012 Olympic Games. I fenced for Team Russia, and in 2013 moved to the USA to learn all things about fitness and movement, once of which was the benefits of minimalist footware. I used different shoes of different brands, but Xero Shoes showed themselves being the perfect combination of good price and good quality. I’ve been running for almost a year now, and I haven’t worn out my pair of the Prio yet! Until Xero Shoes I haven’t ever had athletic shoes that have served me that long.
I’m currently training for my second half-marathon, and I have a dream of running a full marathon one day.
Besides running I teach fencing and work at a fencing equipment store.
I also recently started working at a new Virtual Reality fitness gym called Black Box VR, and I’m having fun exploring new fitness modalities. Needless to say I do all my VR workouts in my Xero Shoes.
