GoPro Sports Motivation – Ready, Go!

So what are you doing today?!  If you need some motivation to get outdoors for some adventure, GoPro’s videos should get you going!  If you’re not familiar with GoPro, it’s a sports camera, which is often associated with outdoor sports.  Many professional and amateur athletes attach it to a helmet, surf-board, handlebars and even on an eagle (below) while filming action packed shots.   There are hundreds of videos on YouTube, some of which never cease to amaze.  Some will definitely get your heart pumping through the close up point of view experience of adventure.

Below are some of my favorites and you can vote for yours below.  Be sure to turn up the sound (these are great in HD and with Bose speakers)!

This recent, GoPro HERO (one of the GoPro camera models) Simplified video is a perfect example of what is offered:

As the GoPro HERO4 video says, “Life is either an incredible adventure or it’s nothing at all.”  The HERO4 video ignites a need for speed!

YouTube offers many video clips of sports moments while other videos are compilations of action or simply cool moments put together such as this:
