Our Fabulous FitPink Models

FitPink have real women who lead normal lives on a daily basis to model the look and feel of our garments.  All these women inspire us on a daily basis. All our models were customers who happened to love our product and wanted to join our tribe.   Get to know them:  Breda Canning Breda is a Personal Trainer who exercises to FEEL good not to LOOK good.
