KINeSYS Performance Sunscreen jumps on board!!!
After moving to Toronto to start training with the newly formed National Team training centre, I decided to go back to the basics and cover the most essential elements for sponsorships. It has been a long process of fine tuning sponsorship packages and following up with various people and companies over the past few years so I decided to focus my energy on the most crucial facets of support.
The sun is in my opinion (aside from the Russian Igor the "Bazooka" who serves a blazing 115 km/h serve!) is our most concerning occupational hazard. Playing all over the world and in all sorts of locations exposes us to varying intensities of Sun rays. From the beaches close to the equator to artificial courts at 2000 meters elevation in the Swiss Alps, we are exposed daily to harmful sun rays. They have an amazing SPF 30 spray screen that works incredibly in all conditions I have used it in as well as an SPF 30 sun protection stick which resists sweat, abrasion and water quite well. Stoked to throw that on my face and never have to deal with a peeling nose again. Other products of interest I haven't used include an anti-fungal foot spray which will compliment our barefoot sport as well as a Gel stick which temporarily relieves muscular aches, sprains, strains, arthritis pain and backaches!
I am very careful with the protection of my skin and in my experience, KINeSYS is the most long lasting and easy to apply (especially when you are already sweating!). This is why I have been after them for quite sometime and this is also why I am so excited be a part of their team for 2010!
Aside from creating superior sunscreen, they are ethical; carbon neutral; source locally; don't test on animals; use no potentially harmful ingredients and use business power to solve social and environmental problems through an initiative called Certified B Corporation. I would highly recommend cruising their link because it is super intriguing.
I am very proud to align myself with such an innovative and socially conscious company. I look forward to using their products and representing them positively on my quest to the Olympic podium!
Thanks again KINeSYS for endorsing me and to my readers, swing by www.kinesys.com to check out their superb sunscreen and other goodies for high performance athletes, weekend warriors and kids alike!
