I was contacted by Title Nine recently to attend a media event ahead of the FitFest about to take place in the Front Range of Colorado for the next three weeks. RSVP for the #T9FitFest my friends – no matter your athletic range.
My first thought was to trash the email because I do not feel like a very worthy athlete right now. I have not been able to be active with the foot still slowly recovering and I have put on a lot of weight with this lengthy process and still breastfeeding. It would have been easy to been busy that night and let this opportunity pass.
Then I thought about it. I have known about Title Nine since it started while I was in junior high – I have known the company to be about empowerment and I would have been a fool not to attend because I felt put off by my physical state. Women of all kinds of shape and activity levels NEED good bras fitted for our bodies. As I slowly get back to activity Thelma and Louise need to be caged.
My BRAVANGELIST, Cari, at the Cherry Creek store set me up in a fitting room, measured me, then picked out four bras for me to try on. The bras ranged from the work-to-workout variety, something that resembled a lobster bib on my short torso, a bra that I already own, and eventually the five-barbel beauty that I settled on – their Marvel Bra. The barbell-rating system has been a mainstay of Title Nine with 1 barbell being the least amount of support and 5 barbells standing for maximum control on their scale.
During my bounce test nothing moved as I hopped around on a bounce ball then moved side to side with a hula hoop. Ha! As if I would share those pictures at this time.
Here are the dates and times of the FitFest as it travels through Colorado. Contact your store location to RSVP for a time slot with your own bravangelist. This is a great opportunity as the events will have an expanded bra selection beyond the huge bra wall regularly at each location AND you will receive a professional bra fitting with encouraging women who support active communities in our area.

Now for the fun – Title Nine has been darling enough to extend the courtesy of a Fit Fest appointment to one of my readers that will include a bra for you to take home. Winner will have 24 hours to respond to my notification email or I will have to choose someone else due to the time sensitivity of this event. Good luck!!!
Disclosure – I was not financially compensated for this post. I was provided a bra but opinions are my own. And I really have been a Title Nine fan since they opened.
