Why “AWEAR”NESS ATHLETICS?
My story started out as being a stressed out military service member not knowing how to deal with my anxiety.
I was so frustrated that I didn't know how to relieve my stress, I quite literally started to run away from all my problems. After that first mile I ran, I noticed that I didn't feel like my world was crashing anymore.
I began to fall in love with fitness because it made me feel better mentally. Over the years, I became known as the “Fit Girl”. Feeling completely misunderstood, I wanted to create a conversation starter that explained why I started my fitness journey.
As a result, I designed the t-shirts with the phrase "I WORKOUT FOR MY MENTAL HEALTH".
I knew in my heart I couldn’t have been the only one who worked out to improve mental wellbeing and lower stress levels.
