The real person behind the story is Alessia, currently 14-years old. co-founder of Om Athletix. A few years ago Alessia wanted comfortable clothes that she could wear while playing her favorite sports and not need to go home before hanging out with her friends. We found some styles that were OK but wanted to make a few small changes and thought the best fabrics, designs and styles did not need to be so expensive, especially since she was growing so fast!
We chose Om as the name because a few of us Parents started to notice after a few years of playing that the girls were being more mean and aggressive the more they played. Being aggressive is OK, as long as it is in a mindful way...that is when it hit us- there needed to be more Om in the sport and in girls' hearts and minds. Hence, Om Athletix!
