Zensah Ambassador Jason Romero embarked on an epic journey on March 24. He plans to cover 3,246 miles in 64 days. His epic journey started in Santa Monica, CA and ends in Boston, MA. Jason suffers from Retinitis Pigmentosa. This has not stopped him from being an Ultra-Marathon winner, multiple Ironman finisher and part of Team USA’s Paralympics team.
At the end of February, we had the pleasure of hosting Kara Goucher here in Miami.
Kara spent most of the morning meeting the team and learning a bit more about what being part of Team Zensah is all about. We then decided to put her to work and made her the Zensah customer service rep for a half hour. Once people found out through Twitter, the phone lines started going crazy. Fans were even skeptical when she picked up the phone, and they didn’t know what to say!
The team also went over some product design with Kara & her assistant, who was quite hard to impress and very rigorous in his testing.
“Everyone has been so friendly, it really does feel like a family!” – Kara Goucher
Zensah & Runner’s Depot Davie also hosted a Meet & Greet with Kara. Over 200 people showed up to meet one of the running world’s most popular characters. Runners of all levels were able to ask questions, learn from Kara and get their pictures with her.
Zensah also invited some of South Florida’s influential runners to partake in a photo shoot along with Kara at the beautiful South Pointe Park in South Beach. Albeit a bit colder than usual for Miami, the weather was sunny and everyone was all-smiles during the shoot. The only complaint from the runners/models was that they were not getting to run enough!
We’re glad that we were able to bring Kara down here and get her to share with our community and see a bit of what it’s like to be a runner in South Florida. Hopefully we’re able to do more events with her and South Florida’s running community soon!
Although most people recognize Zensah as a brand for runners, there are many other types of athletes that wear our products. One group of athletes that really benefits from compression is ballet dancers! We actually have dancers in the Boston Ballet, Philadelphia Ballet, and the American Ballet Theater that wear our compression leg sleeves for training and recovery. See all the pictures below to be inspired by the beauty, strength, and grace of these athletes.
What causes calf cramping? How can Zensah help?
Have you ever been running or exercising when your calf cramps up, forcing you to stop? Even though calf cramping is extremely common among athletes, the exact cause of this phenomenon still hasn’t been determined. These cramps can last for just a few seconds, or as long as ten minutes! Thankfully, Zensah’s Compression Leg Sleeves, Ultra Compression Leg Sleeves, and Ankle / Calf Sleeves can help!
