In their mission to boost body confidence and make workouts more fun, Tikiboo has collaborated with Mr Motivator to launch a funky new activewear collection. This fabulously '90s LYCRA line for autumn/winter 2020 features unapologetically bold patterns and colours popularised by fitness guru Mr Motivator, aka Derrick Evans.
Making his debut on GMTV in the 1990s with live fitness sessions and tips, Mr Motivator’s trademark bright unitards have inspired this exciting range.
His famous catchphrases and slogans have made their way onto leggings, vests and T-shirts including ‘Get wicked’ and ‘Feel awesome’.
Funky prints in the collection include ‘Mr Motivator Goes Tropical’ and ‘Tribe Vibez’ with mix & match accessories. Derrick was involved in deciding which Tikiboo prints would make the cut and best represent his extroverted and fun approach to fitness. And yes, there are flamingos and bum bags!
Tikiboo’s co-founder Faye Jobbins commented:
“We know what makes our customers move and this range will be popular with those who remember Mr Motivator from the '90s and those who simply love bold and funky designs for the gym. Our aim is to make everyone feel they can be themselves, be active and not hide away. Derrick’s motivation is infectious, and we believe the clothing really reflects his personality!”
The collection includes full length and capri leggings, shorts, vests and bras in sizes XS – XXL, plus a kids’ range and accessories. Previous Tikiboo collaborations include Care Bears, Sesame Street and Mr Men and always sell fast, becoming collectors’ items amongst the ‘TikiTribe’.
Tikiboo and Mr Motivator are a natural fit, sharing a passion for getting active in fun apparel that performs. The fitness guru himself explains:
“Mr Motivator brings you exercise clothing that helps you to move better, feel great and look even more fabulous. It provides support where needed and most of all gives you good reason to show off what you have got. So say yeah to gear that complements your every movement and helps you to breathe easily in the process.”
As the evenings draw in and enthusiasm to work out can dwindle, the Mr Motivator range has come along just at the right time. Come on everyone, you look so good!
