If you've ever been to the land down under, (where women glow and men plunder), then you'll know how deadly the land, sea, and animals can be.
Here's a quick list of things that will either kill you or ruin your weekend:
- Giant spiders
- extremely poisonous snails and fish
- saltwater crocodiles
- 40 foot waves
- the oppressive heat of the outback
- and over half of the top 10 list of most venomous snakes are found there
In the interest of equal time, and to not dissuade you from booking a vacation there, here is...
A short list of great things that come from Australia, as per my friend Nathan:
"Crocodile Dundee, AC/DC, the Sydney Opera House, Crocodile Dundee 2, Crocodile Dundee's knife, and Heath Ledger... in that order... oh, and Jim Jeffries, he's pretty rad!"
At Proozy the other day, we got heaps and heaps of products from this company called "2XU" from Australia.
Here's the top 3 things you need to know about them:
1. It's Pronounced "Two Times You" and NOT "Two XU"
2. They make performance workout clothes.
3. They don't fool around.
Full disclosure: I've never been to Australia, and I've known about them for a few months now, but didn't realize the breadth and depth of they're products.
Knowing the benefits of compression clothing, (check out the archives for the Compression post where I put on the tightest shirt I've ever worn) I was glad to see how many different products they make. The mission statement is to "Advance human performance through the development of world-leading athletic garments" for activities such as cycling, wrestling, swimming, running, yoga, basketball, and so many other sports. It's a pretty lofty goal, but wouldn't you be motivated to move faster if you were surrounded by air, land, and sea by some of the most dangerous creatures on the planet?
The most dangerous creature from Australia
I'm not going to waste a bunch of your time with trying to explain the benefits of the different materials and fabrics that they use or how awesome they are. You can learn all about it on their site and they will undoubtedly do a better job of it. There's nothing wrong with being loyal to a brand of athletic gear, but 2XU is doing more to earn your business. I implore you to check out the huge group of new 2XU products here at Proozy.com
Finally, I'll leave you with this. There's an old proverb from Tanzania that translates to:
The person who has not traveled widely thinks their mother is the only cook.
