Delwyn Evans - Power Lifter
This morning I was sitting out on the decking drinking my coffee watching some beautiful wood pigeons. I took a moment and thought to myself how lucky I am to witness this. My life as a power-lifter is just as rewarding.
I am totally honoured to be made Brand Ambassador for TXG Compression Wear.
I have been powerlifting for 4 years previously to that I did bodybuilding for 3 years. Power-lifting comprises of Back squat, Bench Press and Dead-lift. Bench Press is my favourite lift of the 3 and often we just have bench press competitions. Lifting is fun and rewarding its always about battling yourself and I am a great believer in My Lifts My Journey !!! I just live and breathe lifting and chip away keeping things humble.

Prior to my long-haul flight to Finland, I spoke to my GP about long-haul travel and he suggested I would be needing to purchase some decent compression socks for the flight. He suggested I go to a pharmacy to get some. I purchased these and within 30 minutes of wearing them they fell down and had lost elasticity not to mention they were very, very itchy. That night I got on the internet and found TXG Compression Wear and the reviews from satisfied customers bought a smile to my face. I sent an email through asking if I could have them dispatched ASAP as I was traveling to the World Power-lifting Champs in Salo, Finland. I woke up the next morning to a lovely Email I knew then that TXG was a lovely warm and genuine company.
I traveled to my destination with no Jet Lag and not a day goes by that I don’t wear TXG compression wear. I'm totally in love with the TXG compression arm sleeves and wear them at training. This morning I got up and put my new TXG green compression calf sleeves on and OMG I felt like I was in heaven.
So when I was asked to be Brand Ambassador it was an absolute pleasure to be associated with TXG compression wear.
Santina Giardina-Chard - Ashtanga Yoga Teacher
My journey from suffering to liberation through yoga has led me to a deep and real study of yoga as a living practice.
My primary practice is in the Ashtanga Yoga system and I have completed the Primary, 2nd and 3rd series of the system under the guidance of Mark Togni. I travel to Mysore, India every year to continue my tutelage under R. Sharath Jois. I am a certified Master Teacher in the Nicky Knoff Yoga System.
Through tender endurance with each asana of my advanced Ashtanga practice, I have developed an intimacy with the physiology and spirituality of our human form. My commitment to a life of process, practice and courage makes rich soil from which to provide meaningful guidance as a teacher and assistant. I augment my yoga teaching with my work as a therapist, holding a Masters of Gestalt therapy – a humanistic therapy focusing on sharpening an individual's awareness of emotions and behaviours in their experience of the present to bring light to what really is.
I have had the opportunity to study and practice with some of the world’s most respected teachers including Kino McGregor and Tim Feldman, Nicky Knoff, Matthew Sweeney, and Prem and Heather Radha Carlisle. I have been assisting Kino and Tim on retreats abroad.
I have worked with a number of elite athletes from various sports including world-class surfers, swimmers, NRL players, boxers and triathletes. Santina has taught world champion pro surfer Mick Fanning, women's surf lifesaving ironwoman champion Courtney Hancock, surf lifesaving ironman champions Shannon Eckstein and Pierce Leonard.
I practice Ashtanga Yoga 6 days a week and I find that the TXG Compression Calf Sleeves have provided much-needed support through my lower leg muscles and particularly my shin bones. I suffer from poor blood circulation during the winter months. I started using the calf sleeves during my yoga practice and experienced improved blood flow, resulting in better performance and faster recovery. I have experienced deeper levels of mobility in my ankle joints as the shin bone is warmed by improving vascular performance. The TXG compression fabric comforts and fortifies the muscles and tendons in my lower legs while reducing inflammation, swelling and soreness. I use the calf sleeves when I teach. My shin bones are thanking me for the support.
I travel extensively around the world teaching yoga and spend many hours in airports and on planes. The TXG flight compression socks have significantly reduced the impact of swelling and decreased the effects of jet lag. Proper recovery to assist in the removal of lactic acid is so important to me during flight times. The graduated compression socks are knitted to apply maximum pressure at the ankles with gradually reducing compression up to the length of the sock. This allows my toes to feel free while the veins and muscles in the lower legs are constricted which prevents soreness and swelling. For maximum benefits, I put the socks on before the flight at the airport and notice a significant difference in the mobility of my ankle joints when I arrive at my next destination.
