Kic x STAX. : Meet the Kic community behind the shoot!

Secret’s out Kic Squad! We’ve teamed up with STAX. to release our first-ever activewear collection to help you move with confidence.

Designed with Don Robertson, Founder of STAX. Steph & Laura have built a 15 piece collection with inclusivity, quality and comfort at its core. It’s designed to empower you to move, without holding you back. With a simple yet strong reminder that you are enough, just as you are.

To help bring our vision to life, we invited some of our Kic community members to our shoot in Sydney last week! Our community is at the heart of everything we do. We felt so lucky that we could bring some of our community along for this milestone journey!

Read on to meet Christina and Phoebe, who’ve been longtime community members with Kic and helped bring our STAX. collaboration to life!

Meet Christina… 

How long have you been with Kic?

I’ve using Kic for around 3 years with the app and then following along for a few years before that!

What do you love most about Kic?

Kic has been a great place for me to grow into wellbeing and fitness. Especially in the 2nd half of my twenties has allowed me to be on my own fitness journey in a very safe way. I started getting into fitness in my early twenties, found Kic and now am hoping to run a half marathon in May and I could not have done it if it wasn’t for groups like Kic that bring together people and motivate each other

What are you most excited about with the Kic x STAX. collaboration?

To see how excited everyone is! I can’t wait to see how the pieces look on different body shapes and sizes and how every will style the different pieces.

Meet Phoebe… 

How long have you been with Kic?

I’ve always gone on and off fitness apps in the past (I’ve seriously tried all of them) but started using Kic consistently throughout COVID lockdowns.

What do you love most about Kic?

I love Kic, it’s the first fitness app that I’ve consistently used and stuck with. Two things set Kic apart for me – In April last year I was diagnosed as a celiac and I was so overwhelmed about what I can and can’t eat. For the first three months I really leant on Kic Meals as it was easy to filter to Gluten Free and cook at home. KICRUN! My fave! I started running on and off in 2020, but didn’t take it seriously until late 2022 and followed KICRUN 0-5km when launched. This helped me build up to completing my first half marathon in May 2023.

What makes Kic stand out?

The actual community behind it is the biggest stand out for me. It takes it from being a fitness and work out app to a full community of likeminded people. I also love the step away from the usual “before & after pics” and “working out / eating to look a certain way” and having the emphasis on feeling good and being confident within yourself instead.

What are you most excited about with the Kic x STAX. collaboration?

The two brands stand for so much of the same thing, it’s incredible seeing them come together and create some gorgeous items for both of their communities. I hear there’s event talk too, which excites me a lot! If talking specifics on the collection, there’s a fair few items (basically the entire range!) that I’ll need to get my hands on.

The collection will be dropping Friday, 9th of Feb 2024 but you can sign up to the STAX. VIP list to get early access here.
