{Mother's Day} Mondetta Performance Gear {review + giveaway}


{review + giveaway}
Sponsored by :


Do you know a mom who is looking to get back in shape after her first child, or third child? Or maybe you're like me and shudder when you think of the fast approaching bathing suit season! Well this year's round of belly toning and butt lifting just got a little bit easier thanks to the amazing array of active wear from Mondetta Performance Gear (MPG). Earlier this month I received a hearty package from MPG containing Sway Pants in Black, Capture Bermuda Shorts in Black, and a Minx Jacket in Black. Exercising has never been as fashionable or as comfortable, MPG's line of women's active and lifestyle clothing has definitely brought back some of the 'feel good' to my workout routine that was missing with other brands. MPG's clothing is comfortably fitted, breathable, and doesn't impede your motion. The quality of the clothing is also top-notch, I have no fear of a busted seam with the Sway Pants or the Capture Bermuda Shorts, and the light weight yet durable Minx Jacket will be my go to for jogging for several seasons to come, if I can keep it away from my sister! 


Fist up was the Minx Jacket, which I have been wearing almost daily for quick errands and walks since I received it. The jacket is warm when you're standing still but breathes when your moving which is a must for me as I tend to warm-up quite quickly. When jogging, the high collar and thumb-hole sleeves adds an extra level of comfort, keeping our morning drizzle and wind at bay which makes my morning routine more enjoyable on grey days.


Next were the Sway Pants which have got to be some of the comfiest pants I've ever worn. They're a casual fit for yoga, dance, and 'me time', but they look smart enough when paired with some of my graphic tees for popping over to a friend's house. An easy to follow size chart helped me to quickly find my perfect size the first time, one of my pet peeves is having to send clothes back that don't fit! These Sway Pants are fun to wear and provide full range of motion for Yoga routines, they also keep you looking good while you sweat it out! 


And last but not least are the Capture Bermuda Shorts. These shorts are great for those looking for a bit more coverage or who want a pair of shorts that can fit either a high or low impact workout. While the weather is still a bit chilly the Capture Bermuda Shorts are now part of my jogging ensemble along with the Minx Jacket. Like the Sway Pants, the Capture Bermuda Shorts move with you and provide a very comfortable aspect to any workout. The length is perfect and the drawstring waist makes sure these shorts stay put during those downward dogs! 

All in all I am very impressed with Mondetta's line of Performance Gear. And I highly recommend the performance gear from MPG to anyone who makes fitness a part of their daily routine or busy moms (because that's a routine all in itself!) who are looking for comfort and style. MPG's clothing is definitely a cut above the rest and well worth the price. (As of today their Women's Essentials are 25% off and you can also checkout their Clearance Section for more fantastic deals.)


The story behind Mondetta's founders is just as amazing as their clothing, and manifests itself as the Mondetta Charity Foundation. The Mondetta Charity Foundation (MCF) is a completely separate entity from the Mondetta Clothing Company; however it is very much a part of Raj Bahl's (VP Sales), Ash Modha's (CEO), Prashant Modha's (VP Finance), and Kish Modha's (VP Administration) vision to give back by dedicating a portion of the proceeds from the garments sold through their Mondetta Clothing Company.

Here's a little bit more about the Mondetta Charity Foundation :

From our beginning, we have dedicated a portion of the proceeds from every garment sold to various arts and athletic organizations in North America. Performing artists and athletes continually prove the human body is capable of incredible feats when the heart is wholly behind it, although their profession is not often recognized for the dedication it requires. By lessening the high costs associated with the physical arts, MPG helps those with drive receive the resources they need to continue.

The Mondetta Charity Foundation (MCF), a completely separate entity from the Mondetta Clothing Company, has been established to provide assistance to ease some of the suffering in Africa due to devastating problems such as AIDS and the ravages of povertyNearly forty years ago, two families left East Africa as both immigrants and refugees to eventually find their way to Winnipeg, Manitoba where they began to rebuild their lives and establish new roots.

In 1970, Raj Bahl, VP Sales, immigrated to Canada from Nairobi, Kenya, at the young age of three, along with his parents and siblings. Though recollections of his experiences in Kenya are blurred and clouded by the passage of time, his memories are kept alive through the stories told to him by his parents and various family friends who shared a similar experience.

In 1972, under the dictatorial rule of President Idi Amin, Ugandan citizens of Asian descent were forcibly expelled from the country, given 90 days notice to leave the only home they had ever known. The Modha family, including Ash, President and CEO, Prashant, VP Finance, and Kish, VP Administration, was one of thousands of families to leave the part of Africa known as the “Cradle of the Nile” and forge new roots in foreign lands.

The Mondetta Charity Foundation was created on the mandate that all operating and administrative costs would be born by the parent company thereby allowing all donations to be utilized in a strictly charitable capacity.
