Well Naturally – Treat yourself better – Indulge in a better-for-you snack that actually tastes great. The Well Naturally No Sugar Added range is made without any added sugar (just like it says on the pack). Select from an array of delicious flavours in Well Naturally Dark and Milk Chocolate, and be assured we do not add any sugar, artificial sweetners or “secret sugars” (honey, agave syrup and fruit concentrate are all classified as sugar and add to the sugar content in foods). Instead, we use Stevia (also known as steviol glycoside) to sweeten our products. Stevia is a natural, plant based sweetener that is around 300 times sweeter than sugar, so we only use a little to replace the sweetness in our products. Stevia has no calories and no impact on blood sugar levels. We see it as the perfect ingredient in our better-for-you range. We’ve left out the undesirable ingredients, so you can enjoy more of the good stuff. Because unhealthy treats are so yesterday. Treat yourself better with Well Naturally. It’s the healthier choice for a happier you.
SKINS – In 1996, an Aussie skier had a bold ambition – to feel ten years younger so he could ski all day, party all night and be ready the next morning do it all again. His starting point was the knowledge that improved blood circulation would supply more oxygen to his muscles, helping them work harder for longer and recover faster. So he consulted with NASA and other experts to confirm he was on to something. Turns out he was. It took five years to invent and refine the very first pair of SKINS tights. Today we continue to push the boundaries of compression, forever looking for new and unique ways to improve our garments. The benefits of SKINS have been highlighted by endless independent research, with ten studies published in peer reviewed medical journals. SKINS are also recommended and endorsed by the Australian Physiotherapy Association and are registered as medical devices by the Australian Therapeutic Goods Administration. SKINS continues to innovate and grow the field of compression and has become the world’s most advanced and well known sport compression brand on the market.

FlipBelt – Gone are the days of baggy sweat pants with bulky pockets. Active wear is sleeker and more stylish than ever before. The only problem is there’s nowhere to hold your phone, music and keys. That’s where Flip Belt comes in. Who would have thought a singular tubular waistband could solve one of the biggest nuisances that athletes face—where to tuck must-have items while exercising. Every bit as flattering and contoured as the rest of today’s athletic wear, Flip Belt is designed to carry your on-the-go essentials without tying up your hands. Made of a moisture-wicking, spandex-lycra blend, Flip Belt slides right on and sits snug on your hip. No bulk. No bounce. Flip Belt is also machine washable and machine dryable. To keep items secure, all you have to do is flip the belt inward. Now, everything you need while exercising fits right around your waist. Flip Belt is great for holding your valuables while you are walking, hiking, travelling, cycling and more!
The Chia Co – In 2003, Australian farmer John Foss founded The Chia Co with a strong vision: to improve the health of the global community by making chia available to everyone, every day. Chia seeds are one of the world’s oldest sources of nutrition, documented to have been eaten by the ancient Aztecs and Mayans as early as 3500 BC. Derived from the desert plant Salvia hispanica, chia seeds offer the highest combined plant source of omega-3, fibre and protein, alongside a range of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. Chia offers essential wholefood nutrition that is often lacking in the modern diet.
