The Natural Army advantage


Hey Everyone,

Today’s blog is a bit of a shout out to my new sponsor Natural Army Apparel.

I am an athlete and when you’re sweating in the gym or churning through the kilometres out on the road or track, sometimes the last thing you think about is “is this gear comfortable?”

After coach has put me through a few sets or after a couple of laps on the track, it becomes super important.

Over the last few weeks, I started searching for comfortable and long lasting active wear. It’s can be a bit of a fine art especially if you’re like me and practically live in it. Quality active wear is important as it can also aid recovery after a long hard training sessions. 

I had a few key criteria that I was looking for:

1. It looks good – a girl has to look her best regardless of sweatiness

2. Hard wearing – remember I live in this stuff 

3. Local – I want to support our local industry if possible. The big guys get enough exposure!

I found Natural Army Apparel (thanks Google!!), had a read of founder Rick’s story on the “About Us” page, checked out some of his gear online and thought “here is someone who seems to get it”. So, I bit the bullet and approached Rick, you can only get a yes or no answer, right?

After a few chats, both of us sussing each other out to see if we are about the same things, I’m super excited to announce that I am now a part of Natural Army Apparel crew. Rick is a big promotor of local athletes, achieving their goals NATURALLY.

Have we used this image before?? Who cares…Karla is looking fresh, thanks to her Natural Army Apparel tee

Not only does Natural Army Apparel active wear look fresh it,works for me as they provide great quality and comfortablecompression tights and tank tops (just to name a few) which is extremely important considering the amount of training, I do weekly.

Whether it be benching a personal best in the gym, skating at your local skate park (G.A.S coach comment – stay away from those skate parks in competition season Karla!!!) or smashing down a protein shake, Natural Army Apparel has your active and streetwear needs sorted!

Thank you to Rick Westman for seeing the potential and for allowing me to show my sport and ability to the community.

In the end it always helps asking a question because you never know what opportunities await.

Looking forward to showcasing some big things.

Watch this space.

Cheers,

Karla

Giving back

Our wheelchair tennis squad is small but mighty.

Arlo, Hamish and Finn travelled you to Melbourne for the National Wheelchair Tennis Championships held at Tennis Australia headquarters at the Melbourne Tennis Centre.

Also attending was Geelong local Marty Dunn. Marty comes along to our Thursday night sessions and this week took Arlo and Hamish through their session.

Marty warming up at the Nationals

Marty coming down and playing with the squad gives them a boost. Hanging out with him and getting tips is invaluable to their development. It’s a privilege to have him giving back.

Marty and Hamish win a point

Marty recently won the open doubles at the Nationals and was runner up in the open singles. An awesome result and another string to his racquet after winning his first ITF Tournament in Canberra recently.

Thanks mate.
