SiliconBeachClearly: Fund This – Courage Athletics’ Workout Pants
Courage Athletics is re-imagining workout pants for women. The concept behind the signature Courage pant is that both the company and the product are your partners in establishing a healthier fitness regime. This support system extends to encouraging posts via social media, access to low-cal recipes, and workout tips. More importantly, when you purchase a pair of pants, you have 90 days to slim down and then mail the pants back to exchange them — free of charge — for a smaller size. In fact, Courage Athletics will even cover the cost of shipping.
The company is based locally in Los Angeles and has thought through every step in the design and manufacturing process. The patterns are specifically contoured to work with a variety of body shapes and sizes. Blending Lycra and Nylon, the four-way stretch material is not only durable, but helps to keep your body temperature cool, no matter how much you sweat.
And the seam lines do a great job shaping the hips, legs, and thighs. Available in black and heather charcoal (aka gray), the material is also non-transparent, so there will be no embarrassing incidents, a la the Lululemon see-through yoga pants scandal. Plus, everything is made domestically, so it supports the economy.
The Kickstarter campaign kicked off May 6 and is seeking $80,000 in backing. The present total at press time was $1,793, with 31 days to go. As the site states, “The project will only be funded if $80,000 is pledged by Fri., Jun 20 2014 at 9:01 a.m. PDT. You can donate as little as $1 or as much as $208. Early bird donations of $108 get a free pair of the workout pants and free shipping; supplies are limited to the first 1,000 customers.
