Since junior high, I’ve played some kind of sport – basketball, volleyball, cheerleading, running, or triathlon. I always just wore whatever I had laying around which means I never really invested in quality workout pieces. I don’t own any Athleta or Lululemon. My staple workout top is from my drawer full of race T-shirts. Several months ago, my internet bestie joined a new company called ZYIA Active. At the time (fingers crossed they bring them back) they had a pair of bright pink compression leggings that I couldn’t resist.
In all honesty, I wanted to treat myself during my Ironman 70.3 training and help out a friend. I thought I’d like them, but that wasn’t my main purpose for buying them. Well, spoiler alert…I now own 4 pairs of these magical light and tight compression leggings.
My ZYIA Collection Grew
Over time, I added a few key pieces to my workout/mom-uniform wardrobe. The All Star bra is hands down the best high-impact bra I’ve ever worn. The best part? It comes in at about $30 less than my second favorite bra!
A friend of mine let me try on her joggers and I was like, that’s it; I need to be part of this company. The quality for the price is INSANE! Want to find out what my favorite ZYIA pieces are?
4 Reasons I Chose ZYIA
1. I Found an Amazing Team
If you’ve ever had a direct sales gig, you know that your team can make or break you. You need a strong team who is going to help train and educate you, give you new ideas, and encourage you when the going gets tough. The ZYIA Active Passionate Team is the real deal! They put out fantastic content – fun, informative, genuine, and helpful. They aren’t spammy, salesy, and they lead with value.
I joined about 10 days ago and 4 more women have joined our team in that time. The way they practice the abundance mindset is obvious to the world and people want in.
2. They Meet Women Where They Are
Look, here’s the thing…I’ve never been a size 2, and I probably never will be. Often times, it’s hard to get started with a new workout routine when you feel like crap and nothing fits. Too often, athletic brands think everyone is the same size and don’t accommodate a wide range of athletes. ZYIA Active has sizing from XXS (size 0) to XXXL (size 18) to meet you where you are. Maybe you’re not where you want to be right now, but you’re not going to get there without moving your body! I’m proud to represent a company that understands that.
3. Investing in Quality Pieces Saves You Money in the Long Run
Right now I’m working out 5-6 times a week which means lots of laundry and wear & tear on my clothes. Instead of spending less on low-quality pieces that are ill-fitting and don’t last, why not invest in high-quality pieces that will last! In some cases, I actually saved money by going to ZYIA for something instead of a leading workout brand, so there’s that. Learn more about the Form and Function of ZYIA fabrics.
4. ZYIA Values Align with My Own
ZYIA, a women-run business, was founded on four pillars: uplift, community, light, and activity.
- Uplift: This is where that abundance mindset comes into play; we build either other up.
- Community: ZYIA was started as a direct sales company by design. Activewear is personal, so making connections with your community and being able to provide one-on-one customer service is key.
- Light: be a light in some else’s day.
- Activity: moving your body is important, and having pieces that are functional and high quality make an active lifestyle easier!
“Our Mission: ZYIA Active is an active lifestyle brand. It is also a culture that believes in embracing activity with excitement, vigor and delight. We feel that pushing your body and mind is easier and more fun with friends and family. Our mission is to inspire and uplift by making activity a fun and essential part of life.”
