The Original Inspiration!

When going to the gym, I started wondering if all of the women had secretly been brainwashed by lululemon in the middle of the night! This is why I started Shine Athletica - to allow women to confidently express themselves through fitness apparel in any environment. We all have words that help us endure, enjoy, and push through our workouts. The cool thing is, these words are different for everyone, which is why Shine Athletica offers a variety of inspirational word choices. Oh and the other thing - all of Shine Athletica’s apparel is made right here in the USA, because we strongly believe in supporting American jobs.


Creating the Designs

After lots of brainstorming, I narrowed the initial words down to: Fierce, Peace, Pusher, Love, and Runner. Each word has a personal meaning to me that connects with a feeling I have when exercising.

  • When I am getting a hard, sweat-drenching workout in, I feel like a fierce woman who is pushing herself to her limits, which is where Fierce and Pusher evolved from.
  • I also have a passion for running, simply because it is my time to let my mind go and be one with nature. I know that a lot of other women love running as well, which is why Runner had to be one of the five initial words. 
  • Peace and Love actually derived from the feelings that I get when I am working out near my favorite place, the beach. Whether I am doing yoga or taking a relaxing bike ride, I always feel peaceful when I am there.

Designer Packages

The "Tank Designer" Package

This package will allow you to design your very own inspirational tank top! You will receive your design on five of Shine Athletica's Racerback Tank Tops of your choosing! We will include your personal design in the next release of Shine Athletica's designs.

The “Ultimate Designer” Package

This package will allow you, yes, you, to design your own inspirational line of fitness apparel!  You will also receive each piece of Shine Athletica’s fitness apparel with your design on it! We will include your personal design in the next release of Shine Athletica's designs.

Design Application Process

All of our designs are made out of a vinyl material called ThermoFlex Stretch, which is basically a fancy way of saying that the vinyl on our apparel can endure lots of movement without tearing or cracking. The vinyl is transferred onto the fitness apparel by a machine called a heat press that is set at specific temperature and pressure to ensure that the vinyl will stay on the fabric securely. Screen-Printed designs tend to crack and wear easily after only a few wears and washes, which is why we chose to go with a ThermoFlex Heat Press Transfer. Check it out for yourself!

Where the Funds Will Go

If Shine Athletica receives funding from its Kickstarter campaign, we plan to purchase additional inventory and begin rolling out new designs for our customers immediately. We are so excited about this chapter in our lives, and with backers like you, we can make this dream a reality.
