between the stitches: april 2022
Warmer days are here to stay and our team is out rocking their Commuter Shorts, Commuter Polos, Makos Shorts and Reign Short Sleeve tees. What happened at Rhone during the month of April? Upgraded styles and functionality in current products, Pursuit articles on everything from a 4-week kettlebell workout plan to six easy weeknight meals to the why and the how behind Intermittent fasting to the welcoming of a few Rhone baby's by Rhone team members.
While we're continually moving #foreverforward, let's take a moment to look back at what went down this past month.
Introducing Our April Pursuit: Nutrition
Nutrition is so much more than diet plans and supplements. It’s the fuel for your greatest machine–your body.
A Day on the Links with Professional Golfer Brandon Hagy
After recently joining the Rhone family, we caught up with Brandon at the Innisbrook Golf Resort to learn more about his story, his training regime and how he balances showing up fully as an athlete, partner and most importantly, father.

Getting Back Into the Swing of Fitness With One Tool
The translation of strength and functionality from a kettlebell practice for almost any sport or activity is impressive and will always be part of my training. So here we are, constantly coming up with new combos of lifts and variations of movements with no turning back in sight. Still growing, changing, evolving, learning, and having fun. That’s what life is about right?

A Sweat Session and Sit Down with Philadelphia Flyer Travis Sanheim
We caught up with Philadelphia Flyers defenceman Travis Sanheim to get a glimpse into his workout routine on and off the ice and how his community and sport have shaped him into the man he is today.
Although many passive modalities exist today (such as electric stimulation, ice, heat, etc), ACTIVE modalities have proven to be the cornerstone of successful recovery methods.

Mind and Muscle
During the month of April, our Manager of Community Marketing Cameron Ahouse, brought the Boston Community Mind and Muscle - a group workout event followed by a thoughtful mental health discussion.
Boston Yoga Instructor, Hydrow Athlete and Rhone Ambassador, Owen Henn, led a 30 minute yoga flow which was followed by a one-hour discussion that dove into the different facets and conversations that fall within the world of mental health.
The goal of these events are to show men that Rhone is a safe space where they can be as vulnerable and open as they feel comfortable–a space where there's no judgement. Too often men are told that they need to act a certain way or hide their feelings and that stigma needs to change. My hope is that with each event another man in the community realizes that there are other men going through or that have gone through similar situations and they are never in anything alone–that we can all relate to one another on some level and be there to lean on. - Cameron Ahouse, Rhone's Manager of Community Marketing
