Sherwood Park’s TerraFrog leaps to U.S.

Designer athletic-wear company expands to upscale New York studio

The Edmonton Journal, August 3, 2010

Sherwood Park-based TerraFrog Clothing Corporation has made the jump into the U.S. market with a deal to sell its designer athletic wear through Kinespirit Studios, a chain of upscale New York wellness studios.

Sisters Cori and Bobbi Windsor started the company less than two years ago and now sell through 20 boutiques across Canada and online.

“The funky-but-functional perspective TerraFrog brings to athletic wear is truly unique,” said Christopher Daly, co-owner of Kinespirit Studios, in a news release.

“And that is what New Yorkers look for — something fresh and chic. TerraFrog is going to be a big hit in New York City.”

Kinespirit has been featured on TV programs The Rachael Ray Show and Live With Regis and Kelly, and the publications Pilates Style and Natural Health.

The sisters started the clothing line because they were unhappy with the “generic, mass-manufactured workout wear flooding the market.”

They design the Canadian-made clothing.

“We started TerraFrog because we wanted workout wear that was fresh and funky, unique and durable,” said Cori Windsor.

“We did not want to wear what everyone else was wearing. Obviously, a lot of other people were looking for the same thing.”
