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 BONKGEAR apparel design includes a hidden QR code that when scanned using any QR scanner on your smartphone, it auto-launches a mobile-enhanced website containing daily rotating workouts inspired by the theme of the shirt. Each shirt design includes 9+ custom training workouts, with three levels of intensity – Level 1, Level 2 and BONK level.
