I recently read about an online magazine which asked folks to submit their biography in six words. It got me thinking about a T9 take on that 6-word memoir. Could any of us find 6 words to encompass all that fitness is and does for us? Here’s some of our first attempts. (more…)
My hands down favorite fabric for pretty much any activity is our “Butter” products (by Mountain Hardwear). I doubt I could do the fabric justice by trying to put into words how incredibly soft it is, how it never binds but moves with you and how I never get that claustrophobic feeling because it breathes so well. Our most recent incarnation of Butter is the Butter Button Up. This top will keep you warm and comfy in fall and winter whether you are working out or running around town. I have seen this top on many sizes and shapes of women in our office and it looks great on everyone. My favorite thing is how comfortable it is and I love the longer length on the arms that allows for wrapping up cold hands and thumbholes that guarantee no bunching or riding up no matter what I’m doing.

Perhaps you think the real women in our catalog are super women, perhaps you think their lives are unattainable or even made up. But take a minute to think about what your own caption might look like, a caption that gives voice only to the good, a caption that does not let negativity and self-censorship creep in.
Would you see yourself in your own caption? Jump on our website and post your own caption, see if you recognize the woman in the words. If you don’t, you should start to. Or post a friend’s and see if she’ll recognize herself.
I’ll finish with this caption, does it sound like someone you know, someone you could know?

In fact, Barb is a modern Renaissance woman of sorts. She’s an independent thinker who can champion a group cause. She’s a fierce competitor who is wary of the pitfalls of competition. When presented with the choice to do something easy or interesting, she’ll choose interesting every time. (more…)
Unsung heroes. Yes, there are the obvious heroes: the Dream Team—male and female, Michael Phelps, Usain Bolt. But there are also the stories of a quieter, more genuine kind of inspiration. Some of my favorite moments didn’t necessarily involve marquee-athletes winning gold medals, but rather the great, unsung heroes who showed both strength and grace during adversity. (more…)
