Review and Giveaway: Mpowher Apparel



By Toby Amidor, MS, RD

The workout gear giveaway is sponsored by MPowher Apparel. Photos courtesy of MPowher Apparel.

As part of my healthy lifestyle, I exercise frequently. I play on numerous U.S. Tennis Association (USTA) leagues, take Pilates classes 1-3 times a week, and do lots of walking. Of course I like to exercise in style, but I found that MPowerHer has a bigger message that speaks to me. So for me, exercise gear that’s both stylish and provides a message is what I love.

Hanna Bowden and Laurel Kasel, recently launches Mpowher Apparel, a company founded by women, for women, to empower women. These two former college athletes combined their athletic passion into a business effort in order to provide future female generations more opportunities that the one that proceeded it. And boy, does that speak to me! I play high school basketball and was scouted to several universities, many of whom did not provide level 3 basketball athletes any scholarships. With being the first of 5 children, I could have used some athletic scholarship! Mpowher Apparel is to show love for fitness and style, while building a community that inspires, motivates and empowers women.

I had the opportunity to speak with the founders Laurel and Hanna to ask them a few questions:

Q. What’s your favorite workout?
Laurel: HIIT workouts
Hanna: TRX workouts

Laurel co-founder

Q. What’s your go-to pre-workout snack?
Laurel:  Banana
Hannah: Peanut butter and jelly sandwich

Q. What’s your top workout gear pick?
Laurel: Elevate Long Sleeve
Hanna: The Fierce top

Join the Community!
Women can get involved by signing up to join the Mpowher Community, becoming part of the Mbassador program, and sharing empowering stories. 20% of the proceeds from the clothing go to a women centered non-profit.

Laurel and Hanna were kind enough to give away an awesome Energy Top to one randomly selected commenter (pic below).

    This might seem silly but I have lots of old exercise VHS tapes from the 90’s. I go down in the basement and put on a workout video. Some of them do have great soundtracks 🙂
