I was invited to attend an open house at FILAâ€™s New York City showroom. I had heard about some of their new items and wanted to get a firsthand look.
When I arrived, the FILA staff along with their PR folks warmly welcomed me. As I waited for Lauren Mallon, the PR Director at FILA, the receptionist offered me sushi, Diet Coke or Pellegrino. She was exceptionally nice.
When Lauren came to greet me I was so impressed with her expertise in the FILA brand and its history. She showed me the new Body Toning System. I noticed that the material seemed heavy, but she told me that it was redesigned and that itâ€™s a dry fit so it will wisp away the sweat.
â€śWow, that is so cool,â€ť I said. â€śAnd it makes you look slimmer?â€ť
â€śYes,â€ť she said. â€śYou will look a size smaller.â€ť
That really excited me since I wear so many NIKE products and I feel as if everything hangs out. I know this may sound kind of weird, but I want to look good when I run and when I go to the gym, even when Iâ€™m working hard.
She told me that the line came out last year, but this year they introduced new vibrant colors: red, blue, purple, etc.
When I left, they gave me a â€ślookâ€ť book and I read that it not only makes you look slimmer, but it helps you tone faster. The brochure says that it â€śisnâ€™t just Spanx-in-disguise. It fits snuggly and comfortably plus increases circulation and muscle resistance to seek? out maximum toning during exercise.â€ť
The Body Toning System comes in tanks, capris, skorts, shorts and pants. You can even get a Body Toning System Jacket! Now how cool is that?
I havenâ€™t tried it yet but if it works, I think that will be my one and only workout attire! Out with the NIKE's and in with the FILAâ€™s, which will make me look thinner than I am. Now thatâ€™s something that appeals to me! I can't wait to try them out!
