In line with the launch of the Nike Free Trainer 3.0, Cristiano Ronaldo talks about the importance of training and gym work and transforming himself from a skinny teenager.

To be at the level of Cristiano Ronaldo - to win Ballon d'Ors, Champions League, Premier League and Spanish League titles - you've got to put in that extra bit of effort to keep yourself ahead of the chasing pack. That's exactly what Cristiano Ronaldo does every day.

A lot of people reference CR7's military styled attributes; he's sculptured himself into a footballing machine through hours of dedication off the pitch. The footballing ability was always there but it was his desire to build himself into a super sharp, incredibly powerful and athletic machine has enabled his ability to be maximised into success. Here he explains his training regime laced up in the new Nike Free Trainer 3.0.

The Nike Free Trainer 3.0 V4 is available on July 8 at and select retail locations.
