Hi! Welcome to Mantra Sports! I am Nathalie and, together with my husband Nigel, we created Mantra Sports.
In our past lives I worked as a French and Spanish teacher and Nigel as a consultant in a bank. We would come home and be so tired, maybe even more so when we reached 40! We don’t have any children but we would still find ourselves exhausted, bringing work home and constantly beating ourselves up about the need to do some exercise. Neither of us wanted (or had time) to go to the gym. I mean, yes, they work for a while and then you stop going, maybe you’ve been ill, you’ve been away or you had more important things to do like the washing up!! Basically, you let it slip and you just get out of the routine.
We wanted to work in something that we believe in, something that could help us balance that time between job, family, friends and even our furry loved ones! We also want to make a difference in the world that we live in. We want to make sure that children are inspired to get up off the couch, away from their computers and start living a life rather than living a life through a screen.
However, we need to start with ourselves first. It is sometimes hard to remember that we are as just as important as everyone around us and taking care of ourselves should be at the top of our to-do-list.
Have you ever felt that doing your job(s), driving, doing chores, looking after the family, takes up ALL OF YOUR DAY! Also, at which point did you take the time to look after yourself? Even for 10 minutes. Was that lunch rushed? Did you even listen to what someone was saying to you? Did you think if only I had a bit of time I could go to the gym?
Both of us wanted to create something that allows you to take the time to look after your health when you feel that you have not an ounce of spare time… Mantra Sports was born.
We spent a long-time creating products that allow you to work out at home, in your own time and your own pace! WOW what an original idea!! 😂 😂
We are so proud of our products and we use them every day in different ways. I use the ball as an office chair and to exercise on even at my desk. When I follow exercises online, I add extra resistance to squats with our booty bands and/or Magic Circle which really make me feel like I’m doing some work for a change rather than a no effort squat. I can do exercise even whilst I’m watching TV and it gives me a sense of satisfaction; that I have actually done something worthwhile even if it’s just for 10 minutes.
Mantra Sports has helped so many people, mostly on Amazon, with their rehabilitation, exercise and strength goals. We are ecstatic that we have achieved over 1000+ reviews with 92% rated 4 and 5 stars!
Also, our company contributes to the well-being of our society by donating many of our products to people and organisations that need a helping hand and don’t always have the means to purchase fitness equipment. That probably is one of the highlights of owning our own business; we are extremely grateful for everything that we have and want to share this with others.
Now, I don’t claim to be a skinny exercise guru, but I know that it works for me, for my routine, my body and my happiness. Everything in moderation and be happy. This is my mantra and the inspiration behind our company name. Your Mantra can be anything that you want it to be to help motivate and inspire you to be your best self!
Disclaimer: Moderation for me might be different for someone else so you know in your own head whether you’ve overstepped the dessert moderation!! 😊
So that's it! You know who we are and what we’re about. Just a regular family trying to make the most of our time together, enjoying life whilst looking after our physical well-being!
Now it's time for us to help you get the same sense of happiness in your day to day life! 🤗
OK…now where’s that chocolate éclaire.
