YORK, Pa.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Perform Group LLC, a leader in dance and gymnastics performance apparel, and Olympic gold medalist Shannon Miller launch Salto™ by Shannon Miller. Salto™ is a line of fashionable and affordable fitness apparel designed and constructed to allow women to feel confident and comfortable while transitioning to each activity in their busy day. The tagline Every Moment Matters is more than just a motto, it is the driving purpose behind each thing we do. Realizing the value in each and every moment of the day encourages women to take small, manageable steps towards a healthy lifestyle.
“The name Salto is a throw-back to my gymnastics days. A salto, or somersault, is one of the primary foundation skills you must learn. It’s the skill you build upon to grow as a gymnast,” said Shannon Miller. “As a woman, mom and advocate for women’s health, I realize that our fitness is the same way. We must build upon a foundation. It might be adding more steps one day or trying a new fitness class the next. Regardless of how you choose to add physical activity to your daily routine, what you do today, no matter how big or small, can truly impact tomorrow.”
Miller worked with Perform Group to produce a popular line of gymnastics apparel to help gymnasts make the most of every moment by training and competing with confidence. They are now extending that partnership to help the everyday woman live life to the fullest.
“Building on the success of our partnership with Shannon and our gymnastics brand, we are excited to extend that partnership to deliver fitness wear that encourages an active lifestyle for all women. The line is designed to be comfortable and practical, yet stylish, while supporting what every busy woman needs to thrive: the confidence to live a healthy and balanced lifestyle,” said Tighe King, CEO of Perform Group.
Perform Group believes the mission to make Every Moment Matter goes beyond just motivating oneself. These words encourage everyone to look at how they impact others. It’s because of this value that the company is pleased to be joining together with Shannon to support Look Good Feel Better, a free public service program dedicated to helping women with cancer improve their hope, courage and confidence by helping them to deal with the appearance side effects of cancer treatment. Ten percent of the net profits of each order from the Salto™ by Shannon Miller brand will be donated to this incredible program.
Added King, “Our company is comprised of 88 percent women, and all of us have been touched and affected by cancer in some way. Cancer awareness and education is also very important to Shannon's personal journey, as a cancer survivor herself. It's an honor to show our support and help empower women to find the strength and confidence to make every moment matter.”
Salto features mix-and-match pieces that combine performance-enhancing, yet easy-to-care-for fabrics, with ultra-comfortable designs. The line is the fashionable, yet uncomplicated, answer to fitness and yoga apparel that fits into the lifestyle (and budget) of the everyday, active, and busy woman. The line includes leggings, shorts, bras, tank tops and jackets ranging from $24 to $59. Customers can browse the collection at http://shannonmillerfitness.com and also on Amazon.
