Clothing

Courage My Love

Courage My Love Legskins were born out the desire for great looking gear for hot, sweaty exercise that can also be worn fashionably. Choosing to work with technical sporting fabrics meant limitation in colour and patterns. A great deal of research has been done to implement cutting edge printing processes to turn lightweight technical fabric into real artwork by real artists.

Legskins have developed over years of research and development to create the perfect functional second layer of skin to support flexibility and endurance in extremely hot and sweaty conditions. Each detail has been carefully designed and tested. The designer artwork applied to the technical base means they are versatile and can be worn while working out, at the bar or at work, while never compromising function.

We are proud of our sustainability processes. All the Legskin manufacturing is done in Christchurch except the knitting of the fabric because we just don’t have this skill in New Zealand. Our fabric manufacturing meets high environmental standards and is certified by the Hohenstein* Textile Testing Institute (Germany). Our printing process is also eco-friendly with zero waste and all of our workers are paid well above minimum wage as they are experts in their industry.

Legskins won’t shrink, pill or fade and our seams are guaranteed to last!

Training Facilities

If a fitness facility works for you then they work for us

Many gyms have been involved in this competition but we’d like to say a special thanks to; Massey Recreation Centre, City Fitness  in Palmerston North who have been super generous in supporting our Classic Hit entrants. The City Council Facilities – in particular Pioneer Stadium in Christchurch and the Queenstown Events Centre.   If you are looking for a gym to use, look for the REPs logo (to verify if they are a registered facility). Ask if you can try them out for a week. Little things can make a big difference to whether you get the most of a membership and you don’t always see them on a quick tour.

IAMSAUCE

Henry Mackenzie came up with the idea for IAMSAUCE while travelling through Thailand and Laos on his way to a friend’s wedding. The hot, sweet, sour and salty flavours the region is renowned for inspired him to create an alternative to the sugary tomato based products that have become a staple of the New Zealand kitchen.

Using Kikkoman soy sauce as a base, he added water, honey, tamarind, chilli, ginger, sesame oil and fish sauce to create IAMSAUCE. As well as having no preservatives or additives, the sauce is low in salt.

The sauce goes perfectly with almost everything; Henry and his family have it in the middle of their table every night. It can be used to marinade fish and meat, as a dressing for salad and vegetables or just splashed on as an alternative to salt and pepper.

Check your weekly e-mags to find out how you could win yourself a bottle of this deliciousness.
