Opt OUT shorts liner....

The not so open discussion about creating a product from 4 years of testing and modifying.... one thing was for certain.  We were never going to use a LINER in these shorts.  Let me do my best to provide you with some details. We created the 365 Freedom Shorts out of 3 pairs of shorts I used to wear... most of the time I would wear at least 2pairs of those shorts every day....I had to change my shorts to accommodate my movement.  2 of the 3 pairs of shorts came with a liner... after wearing the shorts for a few times... I cut the liner out for anything but a good reason... its the ONLY reason... they were uncomfortable....

Nationals.... not the baseball team!

Nothing like being so focused on the task at hand.   Winning!!  My first day at Nationals in the Palm Desert Indian Wells.... wow.  That was some spectacular stuff.  I sat and watched so many different people playing levels 3.0 to Pro... even though it wasn't a pro event.  The pro's cleaned up.... The task at hand is to find a way to get into the game.  To make it to the Nationals you have to play multiple tournament to qualify.  Winning is getting harder and harder.  I watched a 3.5 match that looked really fun... One of the local guys "Paul and Dennis" won the 60+ 3.5 division... way to go fellas. The real task is to find a...

Ready for Anything

6 years ago I went to a fitness convention and was completely affected by the very last speaker of the event.  His name is Jay Blahnik and his speech encompassed the word Extraordinary. As you entered the amphitheater, you were given a questions sheet with 3 things on it...and a wrist band.  I remember, probably for one of the very few times in my life during a lecture, feeling completely present.  The 4 days of fitness training and education were done and I was in the middle of a major life adjustment.  The 3 questions are buried somewhere in my files, but the wrist band (dead broken and useless) is still around to remind me of that week and what...

The original innovator of Masculinity....Dreamers

Wow.  Where does inspiration come from?  Everywhere and anywhere, you only need to be paying attention. In 1953 one of the single greatest movements was created.  It was created because someone was bored and wanted more out of life.  He was paying attention to so many others around him and observing that they all sought a change.  The change was anything but slight.  It was risky, monumental, controversial, and above all...necessary.  This innovator created something he wanted.  He worked hard and sought "perfection" for the launch of the mens product that would change lives forever.  Shortly after his launch, he would get the answer he was looking for...YES.  They wanted the same thing he did.  Hugh Hefner launched PLAYBOY magazine...

Yoga Pants vs Shorts

If you have stepped outside in the last 10 years, its hard to notice how many women are wearing "yoga" pants....ALL DAY.  There are so many things to say about this, and I will choose the high road and assume the greatest view possible.  Its amazing how many people exercise.  Its fantastic that they are getting workouts at all times during the day.  Its a wonderful thing to think that yoga pants are acceptable at nearly every single public scenario.  Its also refreshing to know that the anti-bacterial agents built into the textiles are working so well.  I think that men appreciate the shear volume of women working out, taking care of themselves, and enjoying their healthy lifestyle, and looking...
