The founder of It Bandz – Stacia Pache
A few years ago I decided to train for a sprint triathlon. At that point I didn’t run, cycle, or swim. It turns out that I love to run and bike but I am a terrible swimmer! This discovery led me to become an avid runner and I soon completed my first half marathon. The downside was that I found that my knees really began to bother me as I increased my miles.
itBandz emerged out of my desire to wear a knee brace that was comfortable, stayed in place, and provided optimal support for my knees. I had the idea for It Bandz while I was on a run! The band I was wearing at the time fell off and I thought to myself “I can make a better band, something especially for active women who love to run and workout!!”
I put my 20 years of product development experience to work to create prototypes, get user feedback, and now I’m bringing them to you. I hope you like your It Bandz! I love them! Happy running or whatever it is you do that keeps you moving!!
Philosophy and Vision
Health and fitness are a huge part of many people’s lives, but physical pain and injuries can prevent them from doing what they want. It Bandz for Knees are providing the next generation of knee support for today’s active lifestyles. It Bandz are about helping people who suffer from knee pain stay active and able to participate in the activities they enjoy.
I appreciate the value that fitness has brought to my life and want to support others in their efforts to run and train for various events. As part of this, It Bandz is a proud sponsor of the Puget Sound Chapter of Girls on the Run. This group is fantastic, check it out!!
