Under Armour, the Baltimore-based performance apparel company, unveiled today the new women’s “Protect This House. I Will.” campaign. The online campaign, which consists of multiple :60 and :30 spots, will star a variety of the company’s top female athletes including long-time Under Armour fixture and Olympic Gold Medalist, Lindsey Vonn.

Adhering to its core values of authenticity and performance, Under Armour will showcase these world-class competitors during their grueling training sessions, while also examining what drives them to be the best.

Vonn’s latest video shows her participating in an intense workout where she performs drills as diverse as barbell squats, lunges, and yoga ball balancing, to keep her in that world champion ski condition.
