10/7(Sat.) I will what I want ! Under Armour. (Host: Laura)

Dear all,

No one is born in perfect type. Learn one thing from YoYo every meeting that encourages us to progress indeed. Let's start.

Session I.

Under Armour Wikipedia
https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Under_Armour

Q1. Which brands of sporting T-shirts / footwears / accessories / ... do you have ?
Have you ever heard or used products of Under Armour(UA)?

UA founder Kevin Plank, perfected the design creating a new T-shirt built from microfibers that wicked moisture and kept athletes cool, dry, and light. Major competing brands including Nike, Adidas and Reebok would soon follow.

Q2. Will you buy a moisture-wicking apparel for exercise at higher prices? If yes, tell us your reasons. If not, you might wear a general one of Nike、Adidas、.., or the other flexible apparel. Please share with your members what your choice is ?

Q3. In February 2017, UA customers boycotted the brand because Plank expressed his support for President Donald Trump. If you were fans of UA, would you do the same? Yes or no, why? I'm curious about your reasons.

I hope the YoYo club is getting sponsorship money from Under Armour for holding this session. :lol:

Seriously, I don't understand why this brand is so popular in Taiwan. It seems the clothing is expensive and then you give Under Armour free advertising by wearing the stuff with the company's logo prominently displayed--ah, but I guess that's the reason many people buy it, for the logo? :)

Thank you to provide UA's inf., and, good sense of humor. :D

Questions of session two are inspired from it, not promoted UA, not commercial --ah. :mrgreen:

PS. this topic is for NEXT Saturday.

Hi Laura,

Thank you for your response.

In your loving tribute to Under Armour, don't forget to mention that there is no real evidence that that so-called performance apparel actually does what it says--keep people cooler and more comfortable when they work out, as this authoritative article states: :)

http://www.consumersdigest.com/special- ... l/view-all

The article quotes an expert as saying that this expensive clothing is more "fashion statement than something functional." It's sort of "retail therapy" for people who don't mind paying lots of money for a logo. :sun:

At the same time, celebrities and star athletes, such as Gisele Bündchen and Michael Phelps, get paid millions to endorse products, which they might not even like. Why, I bet Under Armour doesn't even have a T-shirt that would fit Phelps, given his huge torso. :D

I hope to make it to these sessions but will definitely drop in on at least one of Rock's atheism sessions. Now there's a product that probably won't get a celebrity endorsement. :wink:

Dan's mention is right. :)

So, I would like to hear answers of participators beyond price/product (e.g., session two). :ssmile:

文章Luis Ko » 週六 10月 07, 2017 2:43 pm

being a cynic and sceptic i got to say i don't like the slogan i will what i want. it sounds like 只要我喜歡有啥不可以 kind of stuff, which will be easily abused in my opinion, especially it's a campaign for women.. 8)

last but not least, it doesn't really try to encourage, instead, like Dan said, the purpose is to sell the logo and to curry favour with women la~ XD
i might be a cynic and, a sceptic as well but, i'm definitely not a bad person!!
