Our Athletes of the Month are people who inspire us to keep on working hard, follow our dreams, and keep our wardrobes looking spot on. They also know how to make TAILORED ATHLETE pieces their own. We sat down to chat with this month’s Athlete Jonny about style, goals, and life-changing advice. Read away as we get talking Athlete to Athlete.
What are your passions/hobbies?
For me, a healthy lifestyle is incredibly important. For years I trained regularly at the gym, lifting weights. However, I didn’t feel “fit”. There are a lot of health issues in my family, so I wanted to be fit with a muscular fit. I started CrossFit at the end of 2020 and have embraced it. I feel fitter and healthier. I am leaner, built muscle mass, and now believe that my cardiovascular system is healthier and my heart is much healthier than before. Mentally, I love reading. It helps me switch off and completely relax after a hard day.
What was your primary reason for purchasing from TAILORED ATHLETE?
As a chiropractor, I need to look smart. However, my job is also quite physical. I would regularly split the seat of my trousers at work and my shirts would dig into my arms. I had tried lots of “stretch” clothing before but they were never that good. The TAILORED ATHLETE clothing stretches and moves with me. Also, the fabric is light so I never get too hot. I also recently bought the Jeans. They fit perfectly around the waist AND the thighs which most brands don’t do.
Is there anything you're currently reading or listening to?
I’m currently reading The Mermaid of Black Conch. It’s very different from anything I’ve read before.
The motive behind this campaign has always been to inspire our community. We would love to hear the best piece of advice you've ever received.
The best advice I’ve had from my dad was “to let your yes mean yes and your no mean no.” It’s something I’ve always lived by. It’s allowed me to say when I don’t want to do something and for my decisions to be ones I want to make.
What advice would you give to future or existing TAILORED ATHLETE customers?
Wear the clothing with pride. You’ve built the body; show it off.
