BONKGEAR Announces Partnership with Fitness Coach and Author, Steve RemissionMan Brown, and non-profit, Team Inspiration, to produce SURVIVOR themed fitness apparel.

Ashburn, VA (PRWEB) April 20, 2015

BONKGEAR, designer and distributor of smart athletic apparel for endurance, strength and agility training, announced a partnership with triathlete, coach, author, speaker and SURVIVOR Steve Brown. Steve has joined the BONKGEAR team as a trainer, customizing a series of triathlon workouts for SURVIVOR themed mobile-connected fitness apparel, with a portion of all sales revenue donated to nonprofit organization Team Inspiration.

In February of 2006, Steve was diagnosed with leukemia. He underwent chemotherapy while still maintaining his baseline fitness level, often running home from his treatments, he quickly reached complete remission. By September of that year, just 7 months after his diagnosis, “Remission Man” crossed the finish line of yet another iron distance triathlon – 2.4-mile swim, 112-mile bike, and 26.2-mile run. Brown chronicled his journey through remission and across the finish line in his 2007 book My New Race, and his new book, Relentless Mettle – My Cancer, My Rules, which was published in February 2015.

“I draw parallel lines between the challenges we face in sport and those we face in life, says Steve Brown, I am thrilled to work with BONKGEAR, and utilizing the SURVIVOR apparel and training programs as another platform to encourage people to break through barriers and understand that all things are possible.” A portion of all sales revenue from the SURVIVOR apparel is being donated to Team Inspiration, a nonprofit organization that empowers individuals living with cancer by providing exercise & wellness programs that improve their physical, mental, and spiritual quality of life.

“We began our entry into endurance sports with RUNNER and MARATHON themed apparel and workouts,” says Chris Jones founder of BONKGEAR, “so when we decided to develop a program for triathletes we immediately thought of Steve Brown. Steve has inspired many people to compete and raise money for cancer charities through his personal story and his coaching. BONKGEAR is excited to play a part in empowering others to train and compete as well as raise awareness and funds for Team Inspiration.”

“We could not be more thrilled, not only to have Steve as one of our coaches and spokesperson for Team Inspiration, but to have BONKGEAR behind us as well,” states Roseann Dougherty, founder of Team Inspiration, an oncology nurse and cancer exercise specialist, triathlete, and USAT Certified Coach.

Each shirt design includes 9+ custom training workouts, with three levels of intensity – Level 1, Level 2 and BONK level.

Vuori launches new men’s performance apparel focusing on yoga, surf, sport and life.


Encinitas, CA (PRWEB) February 03, 2015

Founder Joe Kudla, and collaborating athlete Chris Miller, a pro skateboarder and action sports industry veteran, describe their new brand, Vuori, as a modern men’s performance line that is inspired by the coastal California lifestyle. It is an integration of yoga, surf, sport, art and life. “Vuori is functional high performance apparel that will get you through the rest of your day in style and comfort,” says key collaborator Chris Miller.

After numerous conversations on the active market Joe and Chris realized that the male customer looking for great looking performance clothing is really underserved as so many companies are focused on the women’s market. Athletes ranging from those that practice yoga, surfers, runners, climbers, and cross-fit enthusiasts all mentioned that they did not want to sacrifice style for performance but often had to choose between the two. This was the inspiration behind the brand, to create a line that was built to move and sweat in but transitioned into everyday life in a seamless way with a style that guys actually want to wear.

Vuori has assembled a great team of investors and Board of Directors that are part of the optimistic and healthy lifestyle, including musician Jason Mraz. Industry veterans, Rich Rodstein, formerly CEO of K2 and Michael Magerman, founder of Odyssey Golf are investors and will sit on the board of directors as well. Rounding out the executive team is Nikki Sakelliou, who will lead Vuori’s marketing team. Sakelliou previously lead the marketing efforts for prAna and has deep roots in the surf and skate markets, as does the rest of the creative team. Apparel designer Rebecca Bray previously lead the design efforts for RipCurl and Ashworth and the brand is currently working with newly launched creative agency, Wander and Echo.

Vuori’s Spring collection has just launched and is currently available in outdoor and surf specialty shops, high-end gyms and yoga studios as well as on-line.

ABOUT VUORI CLOTHING

Vuori is a new perspective on men’s performance apparel inspired by the coastal California lifestyle; an integration of yoga, surf, sport, art and music. The product is built to move and sweat in, yet styled for life.

Workout Apparel

Exercise is a vital part of life, and everyone in the world should be doing some form of exercise. It is important for the body to be exercised in order to maintain a good physical condition, and regular vigorous exercise should be practiced by all. It is important to have the right clothing, gear, and devices to work out, and being prepared will ensure that your workouts bring health and vigor to your body.

An important part of your workout is the clothing that you wear while working out. Many people simply grab the first pair of shorts and shirt from their drawer to work out, but it is actually important that you select the right workout apparel when doing your exercise. Here are a few factors to consider when looking into purchasing workout gear:

The fabric of the clothes you choose is very important.

– You can use fabrics that wick your perspiration away from your body, such as clothes made out of polypropylene and other artificial fabrics that have been designed to draw sweat away and keep your body feeling cool and breezy.

– You can also use clothes made from cotton, as these clothes absorb sweat very well. Cotton clothing is very common and much cheaper than the professional workout apparel that is made from synthetic material. It may feel a lot heavier after your workout due to it absorbing all of your sweat.

– Never use clothes made with plastic or rubber based materials. These cause your body to overheat and could cause heat stroke

Size does matter when it comes to workout gear, as there are different types of clothes that are suitable for different activities:

– Exercises such as jogging, running, and cycling should be done in clothes that are fit tightly to your body. This will provide you with extra streamlining, and will help you to avoid getting your clothes trapped in your bicycle wheels or pedals while out cycling.

– Basketball, soccer, and tennis should be played in loose fitting shorts with a mildly tight T-shirt or jersey. This will ensure that your legs have plenty of mobility and comfort while playing sports, and your workout gear won’t hinder your running, jumping, and playing.

– Pilates, yoga, and other similar activities should be done in clothes that are loose and comfortable. There will be a lot of stretching in these activities, and you want to wear clothes that will allow you to stretch easily and comfortably.

– Martial arts should be performed in the proper workout apparel, which can be provided by the martial arts school where you will learn.

Climate is another important factor:

– In cold temperatures you need to remember to keep your body warm while exercising. Use layers that will allow you to take clothes off while your body is hot from exercise and put them back on once you have cooled down.

– In rain or snow, make sure to wear clothing that will keep you safe from the elements.

– In hot climates, you need to wear clothes that will give your skin the chance to breathe. If you wear clothing that keeps the moisture near your skin you could end up having a heat stroke or fainting.

Welcome to Walking and Workout Gear, inside you will discover an amazing selection of low priced and excellent quality workout apparel.
