Lycra Tri Suits – Latest Design from O2 Fit


New 02 Tri Suit – $70.00 AUD online

The great thing about the 02 Tri Suit is the ability to pretty much run, swim, go to the gym and have a really intense workout and not worry about having to change your clothing between activities.

Tri suits, whilst made for triathlons are a really functional piece of workout attire. A typical workout might include a run or walk to get the body warm, followed by a gym workout with weights, To finish off a workout might also include a swim at the end (just shower though so you are clean before you get in).

O2 Compression makes this Black Men’s Trisuit and states that the benefits include:

o2fit’s triathlon suits is sleek and fitted in a way to give you the best performance in both your triathlon training and on the big day.

The suit allows you to swim, ride and run without needing to spend time changing gear during the transitions. Most professional triathletes will wear a triathlon suit because it offers an all-in-one, multi-purpose garment that can be worn from the moment you arrive, right through to the recovery period after the event.

Our triathlon suits include chamois padding (micro fleece 85% polyester + 15% spandex) in the crotch for comfort during the ride, while not impeding swimming or running ability.

They are made from quick dry material which will ensure that you dry off as quickly as possible between the swim and the ride to prevent chafe.

Other benefits include:

  • Leg grippers so you don’t have to worry about the short legs riding up while you train or race
  • Reduced drag in the water to ensure you perform at your best and aren’t overworked in the early stages of the event reducing muscle oscillation upon ground contact increasing torque generated about joints
  • Reducing the risk of injury by enhancing recovery following strenuous exercise by aiding in the removal of blood lactate and improving subsequent exercise performance increasing feelings of positive leg sensations both during and following strenuous exercise
  • Reducing the effects of delayed onset muscle soreness in the days following strenuous exercise

Our strategic flat-lock stitching means enhanced comfort and a great fit.

Kids Lose It In Lycra – Fun Compression Wear!


Flower Power Compression Garments – Top with Faux Cape (Large, X-Large, XX-Large) currently discounted to $49.95 US

I’ve come across a website that sells compression clothing for special needs children:

One of the best ways to develop and improve products, for use by occupational and physical therapists who work with children, is to meet them in person and hear what works – or doesn’t work – in the field. Children can be challenging clients to treat because, quite often, their focus is on “being cool” and “fitting in” with their peers, rather than achieving strength, stability and coordination.

“OTs have lamented to me that kids don’t want to wear compression clothing,” says Diana Hohmann, senior brand manager for FlagHouse Special Needs. “Kids with Autism, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), Sensory Processing Disorders (SPDs) and more, who need the benefits of deep pressure – such as posture bolstering, alertness, mental focus, body awareness, etc. – don’t get excited about putting on drab, uncomfortable compression clothing and then wearing it in front of their friends. And I don’t blame them!
