As sport and fitness enthusiasts and entrepreneurs in Winnipeg, it was simply a matter of time until I crossed the paths of Lisa and Bryan Salvador, owners of LBS Yoga and Athletic Wear. LBS – Live Breathe Strive – is a 100% locally owned and Canadian-made, exceptional women’s yoga and athletic clothing line. I sat down with Lisa to find out about the inspiration and the motivation behind it all.
Growing up playing sports lead husband and wife team Lisa and Bryan to be exceptionally hard working and motivated professionals. Living healthy lives and providing quality products at affordable prices to Winnipeggers with LBS motivates them on a daily basis. Their goal to become a new provider for yoga, athletic and everyday casual wear is well under-way.
LBS began in 2014 as an opportunity to challenge themselves outside of their full-time jobs and to start something that was solely theirs. As parents, they like to be busy and enjoy following their wide-range of interests. Sports and self-sufficiency have always been drivers for them and have always motivated them. They started this business because it aligned perfectly with their goals.
Their athletic careers have taken them through various sports and activities including soccer, hockey, ringette, fastball, volleyball and yoga. As active gym-goers and yoga enthusiasts, this power couple knows what makes for great athletic wear. Although their clothing line is currently just for women, they plan to expand to both kids and a mens’ line in the near future.
As a woman who literally feels some days that I live in my sweats, a high quality active wear line is gold to me. There are a huge variety of styles and colors that can easily go from the office to running errands to the gym. And that is exactly what I need.
The Nylon Supplex feels like cotton – which is a very comfortable material to wear while working out or running around town. Bamboo fabric is sustainable and anti-bacterial, and drapes without clinging. And oh my word is it SOFT! And then there is the Cotton Fleece – no words can describe how soft this material is – from pants to sweaters, it’s absolutely glorious on the skin.
Lisa’s overall outlook on life makes her not only want to be someone you want to support in business, but someone you want to be around all of the time. Her motto for life is simple – if you don’t love what you are doing, change it! If you want to try something new, do it! And whether you are 3 or 83, always play play play!
Lisa attributes so much of her life’s success and happiness to sport. She is a terrific example of a positive role model for both young girls and women in Winnipeg. And for that, we at Fit Communications want to commend her and support LBS as much as we can. So how can you support this wonder woman?
