THE EXPAT RUNNER

I was right. I’m a tight ass. The pain on the outside of my knee experienced when running downhill during the NM Galaxy 15km was (and continues to be caused) by tightness in my buttocks and hips. It’s classic ITB syndrome. I’ve been to physio twice and have been stretched and pummelled which has really helped, and I’m stretching and using a foam roller at home. Hopefully, this will sort the problem out. I doubt I will be able to do the Cyberjaya Half Marathon this coming weekend but I haven’t given up hope yet. Common sense would dictate that I give it a miss. Common what?

Anyway, I’m pretty sure I can pinpoint the origin of this butt problem. I am a victim of my own attempts at strength training. My cross-training was totally lacking despite good intentions and the knowledge that strength training is essential for running injury-free. I’m…

Introducing 02Fit – Compression Wear that Wont Break the Bank


Finding good quality compression wear can be a hit and miss affair.

Some brands such as Skins and 2XU can be over $100 a piece

However 02Fit Compression wear is reasonably priced and looks great

.

 

Below is an excerpt from 02 Fitness on why they started making good quality compression wear which was under $100.00!

o2fit is Australia’s cheapest compression clothing online retailer. We are based in Perth, Western Australia and are 100% Australian owned and operated.

The three of us started o2fit with the belief that people shouldn’t have to pay over $100 to be able to use compression clothing. So we set out to find if we could get the price lower for compression clothing without reducing the quality.

We were amazed with what we found. There was no reason why compression clothing had to be above $100. There was no reason why it had to even be over $50.

You only have to watch a televised game of AFL or surf the web to work out why our competitors are so expensive. They are using your wallet to help pay for their massive advertising budgets. Plastering massive billboards on sporting ovals, hijacking websites with large banner adverts and sponsoring professional athletes adds up quickly and the only way to pay for that is to have huge profit margins.

We decided to go down a different path. We aren’t stupid – we know that a business can’t survive without revenue. But instead of only getting a small amount of people to pay a ridiculous amount for a pair of compression pants we would much rather have lots of customers paying an affordable amount. We know from experience that our product and price will speak for itself.

There are three areas which we believe set ourselves apart from the others.

  1. The first is price and quality. We are the cheapest compression clothing brand in Australia, but that doesn’t mean the quality is lower than the other products.
  2. The second thing is our approach to our customers. We are passionate about o2fit and want to see more people using compression clothing in Australia. That’s why it isn’t a chore for us to speak to our customers. If you flick us an email the reply will come from one of o2fit’s owners. We are always improving our products and adding new product lines. We do that based on your feedback. We don’t discount a comment just because it is from one individual, every bit of feedback is important to us.
  3. And finally, our approach to advertising. We know that people will recommend an affordably priced and a quality product to their friends and family. We don’t have a massive national advertising budget to get our brand known so we are relying our product and service to speak for itself. That means we can keep our product prices low and as a result more Australian will get the benefits of using compression clothing.

Whilst these lycra compression tights look great, why is it that womens fashion generally is more colourful and men generally get the boring option of black, navy or red (occassionally). I suppose it might be the case the men are generally not buying more colorful designs.

So you heard it here first, guys and girls we need more colorful lycra so we don’t die of boredom whilst exercising.
