Kim Russell

Hood River


Kim Russell of Hood River, Oregon might just be the definition of “active.” She discovered her passion for adventure and love for extreme sports back when she was a child, sliding down the stairs in a laundry basket. Since then, Kim has become an accomplished professional whitewater kayaker, professional enduro mountain bike racer, exercise specialist and personal trainer. What’s more? She is a freelance writer and regularly contributes to Canoe and Kayak Magazine online, as well as for various other publications leading in the outdoor industry. In her free time, she is an avid skier and mountain biker and enjoys running, climbing, hiking and yoga.

As a professional athlete, Kim knows that recovery is just as important as training, and that’s where VIM & VIGR comes in. VIM & VIGR’s compression socks allow her muscles to recover quicker and repair in style, whether she’s been shredding down a bike trail or standing on her feet all day as a personal trainer.
