Paragon Fitwear is a relatively new company who sells, you guessed it, Fitwear! They have both a men’s and woman’s range, plus accessories. Their ethos revolves around intrinsic motivation (so motivation from within rather than from external sources) and the Three C’s:
Challenge – Push yourself, accomplish your goals, and see your strengths develop.
Choice – Define yourself. Decide who you want to be. Your goals are set by you, not by anyone else.
Connect – Get by with a little help from your friends. Reach out to others to offer support.
All of this, from the importance of motivation, to being who you are, resonates deeply with me. Paragon isn’t just a company who sells clothes, it’s a family of people who agree, and live by this philosophy. To check out what their all about, check out their hashtag on Instagram: #teamparagon
A couple of weeks ago I ordered one of their shirts, their orange tank to be exact, and after only one week it arrived (from USA to Australia). I was so excited when it came, I ripped open the bag and tried it on straight away! The colour was amazing, and it fit beautifully! It’s made out from 57% cotton, 38% polyester, and 5% spandex. It have the perfect combination of stretch and structure which makes it so comfortable to wear!
Last night I finally got to wear it for an actual workout, and I was so impressed with it. The first thing that happened was my Personal Trainer told me she loved it *instant ego boost*! No doubt, a workout session with a PT left me nice and sweaty, but my shirt absorbed it like a pro, there was no residue left on any of the machines I used. And, more importantly for me, I didn’t feel sticky and hot, like I was drowning in a wet shirt, I felt fresh (on the outside, the inside was dying) the entire time.
In fact, I love this shirt so much, and the quality of the material, that I’ve just ordered two more! Another tank in a different style, and a racerback! Can’t wait to try them out!
