My teenage daughter joined the crew team last year and since then, I’ve gotten a crash course in all things “rowing.” In addition to the requisite lessons, camps, and regattas, at the top of her wish list was an ergometer (rowing machine) for our home gym. And, as a loving parent (with visions of hefty future college scholarships!) I complied.
The funny thing is… I love the rowing machine almost as much as she does! Certainly, my form is bad. And, I am definitely not fast. But, the ergometer gives you an entire body workout that just can’t be beat!
Now that I’ve seriously taken up “waterless rowing,” I’ve had to add a few items to my workout wardrobe. One of my favorites is a new Marika® Tek Venus Crew Neck Dry Wik® Tee. This tee is incredibly functional for a serious workout. Marika® Tek offers an exclusive, breathable, high tech wicking fabric and finish for the ultimate in cool, dry comfort. The Dry-Wik® technology wicks away moisture, making for a more enjoyable workout.
Plus, this tee is truly comfortable no matter how hard or how long I row! How many times have you purchased a sports bra that pulls, a tee that rides up, or spandex that makes a full range of movement impossible? I have a closet full. But, the entire Marika line features tried and tested shapes built for the ultimate in fit, form, and function.
And, not only is the Marika line functional, it’s also fashionable! For example, the Venus Crew Neck Dry Wik Tee comes in Fandango Pink with neon yellow stitched trim (my personal favorite) and Ultra Violet with lime green stitched trim. Both colors (pictured above) are flattering and fun for sports — and even appropriate as casual fashion wear. The fabric is an easy-care, washable rayon/poly blend and the tees are available in S-M-L-XL . Retail $28.00 (less 20% coupon code for Susan Said What?! readers – these tees are only $22.40 through September!)
In addition to the Venus Crew Neck Dry Wik Tee, the Marika line also includes a full range of chic, easy-fit, and affordable women’s active wear with innovative performance materials and technology in its versatile designs.
Last year Marika introduced the hugely successful shape-enhancing Marika® Miracles line, which features a ground-breaking slimming ELAST-TIGHT fabric that incorporates patented design and technologies. I have a pair of fabulous workout capris from this line, and I can safely say, they are truly a miracle!
