With warmer weather approaching, we thought we’d take a timeout to focus on sun safety. As some of you probably know, May is the official month for skin cancer awareness. So, in hopes of ensuring our athletes and customers live their healthiest, most active lives, we wanted to remind each and every one of you to keep protected when heading outside this summer.
At TYR, we are dedicated to engineering apparel that works for you. With UPF 50+ protection included in our most popular fabrications, our gear promises to stand up to harmful UV rays just as well as it stands up to wear, tear and chlorine. To check out a few of our sun safe products, feel free to browse the images below or to visit us online.

With every new year comes the opportunity for new beginnings.
Here are a few healthy options for you to adopt in 2016:
- Eat breakfast
From improved concentration to increased energy, there are a ton of reasons why this is the most important meal of the day. This year, make it a point to start your day off right with good-for-you treats like oatmeal, fruit, greek yogurt or eggs.
2. Drink more water
As a brand devoted to water, this one obviously remains close to our hearts. But in truth, the importance of hydration should matter to everyone. After all, water makes up more than half of our bodies! Resolving to drink more water is an easy way to enhance digestion, circulation and the transportation of nutrients. So if you want to energize from the inside out, be sure to bring along a water bottle!
3. Be a smart snacker
With responsibilities like school, work or practice, it’s easy to let time get away from you. To prevent yourself from falling into the habit of grabbing the first snack you see, chose instead to plan ahead. This year stock your gym bag or car with a few good-for-you treats like almonds, granola bars or veggies. This will help to curb your hunger and keep you fueled for the day ahead.
4. Finally use a foam roller
We’ve said it once, and we’ll say it again: foam roller. Using a roller is a great way to release lactic acid build up- allowing for quicker recovery time and fewer sore muscles. Making time to do this regularly will help to keep your body in the best condition possible.
5. Kick one “bad for you” habit
Whether it’s too much fast food or indulging in a daily glass of soda, try to pinpoint one habit that could use a bit of improving. Remember, no one is perfect- balance is key!
6. Get your zen on
Manage and reduce your stress this year by carving out a bit of “you time.” Yoga and meditation are both great ways to help you better navigate life’s inevitable ups and downs.
7. Stretch more
As our bodies age, our muscles naturally tighten. So as you approach another year, consider scheduling some time to stretch out. Regular stretching is a great way to heighten flexibility, as well as boost physical performance.
8. Hit the hay
Better health begins with better sleep. Making time to recharge is essential to maintaining energy throughout the day. So, consider challenging yourself to improve those nightly z’s by shutting down all electronics, getting into bed earlier and refusing to hit the snooze button in the morning.
9. Keep moving
Simply being more active is a great way to start 2016. Even if it’s taking the stairs instead of the elevator, making small choices toward a healthier lifestyle can have some huge results!
With Halloween right around the corner, the TYR team was excited to brainstorm a few fun treats for the office. After a trip to the grocery store we realized that the best way to get our healthy, sugar-fix would be through fruit. So, we decided to try making our very own Snack-o’-Lantern Fruit Cups. And believe us when we tell you, this recipe definitely did the trick!
Whether you’re gearing up for a Halloween party or just in the mood to get festive, these quick and easy treats are the perfect snack.
