COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — USA Triathlon today announced that San Diego-based Perspective Fitwear has been named the organization’s Official Training Apparel through 2023. The company, owned by Founder & CEO Stephanie Perez and U.S. Naval Officer LCDR  Kory Perez, was launched in 2017 as a women’s performance apparel brand and now features size- and fit-inclusive, sustainable designs for both men and women.

The company currently offers an additional line of USA Triathlon-branded apparel for sale on its website, including tech tees, tanks and hooded sweatshirts. 

Starting in 2022, Perspective Fitwear will serve as the Exclusive Parade Kit for USA Triathlon’s age-group Team USA at World Triathlon Championship events. The kit will include a tech tee, quarter-zip pullover and bottoms to outfit the nation’s top amateur athletes during the Parade of Nations and throughout race weekend. 

Additionally, the company is the exclusive training apparel provider for USA Triathlon High Performance program athletes, including members of the U.S. National Team, Toyota U.S. Paratriathlon National Team and elite pipeline programs. 

“USA Triathlon is proud to align with Perspective Fitwear, a company that shares in our commitment to advance diversity, equity, inclusion and access for multisport athletes everywhere,” said Victoria Brumfield, USA Triathlon Chief of Staff and Chief Business Development Officer. “Additionally, Perspective Fitwear fits the needs of all athletes who participate in multisport, regardless of experience level. From ethical design to diverse sizing and representation across its branding, Perspective Fitwear is the epitome of ‘walking the walk,’ and we look forward to working together to advance the sport while serving all its participants.”

“We are excited to partner with USA Triathlon as they create space for more inclusion and representation in triathlon. As a former Division I athlete, Ironman finisher, and endurance enthusiast, I am thrilled that Perspective Fitwear's company core values align with USA Triathlon's vision to grow diversity, equity, inclusion and access in the sport.” said Stephanie Perez, Perspective Fitwear Founder & CEO.

Perspective Fitwear was created with a goal to empower people of all athletic experiences and aspirations, and the company will partner with USA Triathlon on several programs as part of USA Triathlon’s Together We Thrive initiative. Perspective Fitwear will be a Supporting Partner of the Together, We Thrive: Actions for Change Summit, a free virtual event that equips athletes and others in the multisport community with best practices to create an inclusive atmosphere for the sport at the grassroots level.  

At the 2022 Endurance Exchange, an industry-wide endurance sports conference hosted annually by USA Triathlon, Perspective Fitwear will serve as the Presenting Partner of the Women in Triathlon content track as well as a Women in Triathlon networking event. Perspective Fitwear will also be the Presenting Partner of USA Triathlon’s Women’s History Month, which will feature a content series showcasing the contributions of women in triathlon throughout the month of March.

The company will also present the Journey to Nationals video contest and Team Spirit Award at the USA Triathlon Collegiate Club National Championships, starting in 2022. 

Perspective Fitwear is a proud supporter military-focused nonprofits — most recently partnering with Active Valor, a combat veteran run organization serving Gold Star children, in a “Giving to Those Who Gave” campaign. Perspective Fitwear also sponsors Feisty Media, USA Triathlon’s nominee for the 2021 World Triathlon Women’s Committee Award of Excellence. 

The company is also dedicated to environmental sustainability and ethical manufacturing. Perspective Fitwear’s Good Human Tech™ line features a landfill-degradable technology and SPF 50+ protection.
