With the rise in childhood obesity, it’s so important for children to be active. While the digital world is all well and good, it doesn’t get one to exercise enough. It even happens with me. I’m so bothered sitting at my computer that I hardly do much exercise unless I make a conscious effort to do so.
I was recently approached to review some everactiv sports clothing for my eldest. Here’s a little more about the brand –
A new sportswear company for young people, co-founded by a multiple World Champion triathlete and duathlete has launched with a commitment to support grassroots clubs through the donation of a percentage of its profits.
everactiv was established in 2016 by former professional triathlete Catriona Morrison and business partner Linda Barclay. Through designing and delivering fun and funky clothing, which is both high quality and affordable, the businesswomen hope to break down many of the barriers which stand between young people feeling great and looking good when they are active. everactiv’s first range is for girls aged c.7-14yrs. everactiv’s vision is to inspire, motivate and enable young people to get active.
Central to this vision is the ‘Club everactiv’ initiative, which will see the company donate a percentage of its profits from each sale to a grassroots sports club or school. By investing back into these organisations, it will support the important work that they do in communities across the country to get young people active.
Organisations will register with everactiv and customers purchasing from the everactiv online shop will be able to select which organisation they would like to receive a percentage of the profits from that sale. As funds accumulate, organisations will have the option of redeeming them for clothing or receiving the monetary donation to support junior sports development. ‘
everactiv’s commitment to making sportswear more accessible does not end there. Their ‘everloved’ programme will see once-loved but outgrown sportswear redistributed to young people who may not otherwise have access to sports clothing. This initiative will be launched in 2017.
I was thrilled to be a part of this amazing brand and the best part is that I really, really liked the product. What’s more – so did my daughter. And that says a lot. Jadyn can be quite fussy in her dressing.
The clothes fit very well I quite like the stretchy fabric. It’s fits snug and is quite thick too so it’s perfect for running or sports in colder weather.
We chose the Long Sleeve top in black and it has thumb loops to prevent the sleeves from riding up and to keep hands warm. It also has pouch pockets in front and reflective tabs for visibility in the dark. The top is priced at £24.99
The leggings are just lovely. They fit so well and they look good too. We chose the blue ones because we thought the black stripe on the side looked ever so nice. These are priced at £19.99
I was sent the above products to review. All ideas and opinions are my own.
