Fitness apparel brands are targeted towards the elite athlete and the aspirational idea of the elite athlete. Very few, if any, fitness brands focus on the regular person who works out or aspires to working out.

A lifestyle fitness apparel brand build around a community of regular people. Utilizes brand images and real people to push the message.

Customer
