    Meet The Design Team!

    design team_blog becca "Hi! My name is Becca and I've been a designer at Sweaty Bands for a bit over two years now. I co-oped at several places while at the University of Cincinnati, including Dick's Sporting Goods and Salomon Ski, before graduating with a bachelor degree in Graphic Design. I love that I have a job that encourages creativity and gives me the opportunity to focus on my health every day. It's taught me that the ability to balance home, work, and self is so vital to a healthy, happy mindset! Outside of work I love to create, travel, and spend time with my amazing hubby and daughters." jordan "Hi, my name is Jordan! I graduated from the University of Cincinnati in Graphic Design. I appreciate simple, beautiful, functional design, so Sweaty Bands was a perfect fit! I also love getting sweaty and I am currently training for my third half marathon in May! I enjoy doing hot yoga and I play soccer every week. Designing at Sweaty Bands has been such a fun adventure with an amazing team and I am excited for what's to come!" meredith "Hi, I'm Meredith! I am a sophomore at the University of Cincinnati in the DAAP program for graphic design. I am currently co-oping at Sweaty Bands for this spring and fall semesters.

    Freeset + Sweaty Bands

    This Saturday (11/21) and Sunday (11/22) we are partnering with Freeset. Being dominantly an all woman’s company, their mission hit us straight in the heart. What exactly is Freeset? Freeset is a fair trade business offering employment to women trapped in Kolkata’s sex trade. They make bags and organic tees, but their business is more than just that. It is about freedom. “Freeset is located in Sonagacchi, the largest, most infamous sex district in Kolkata, India. Within a few square miles more than 10,000 women stand in line selling their bodies to thousands of men who visit daily. Many are trafficked from Bangladesh, Nepal and rural India. For others poverty has left them without options. The cries of their hungry children drive them to sell their bodies.” – Freeset In India, prostitution is big business and thrives on exploitation and slavery, robbing the poor of dignity and innocence. We as a world need to be aware of this violence against women and girls or it won’t end. We all must use our own voice to bring awareness to the issues facing women and girls worldwide and create a culture of intolerance for the degradation of women through violence. To find out more about Freeset’s fair trade and environment values, visit: We couldn’t be more supportive of their mission and drive to bring freedom to woman everywhere. In addition to 100% off Freesets proceeds going to Freeset, 20% of all Sweaty Bands sales that happen in our warehouse this Saturday and Sunday will benefit Freeset as well. Come join us at the pink door!


    As we launch the #RealSweatyWomen campaign, we couldn't think of a better way to start off the campaign than with a story from one of our customers. We have already received some incredible stories and we can not wait to see the rest of them start to roll in!! What exactly is this #RealSweatyWomen campaign about? We are paying a well-deserved recognition to women everywhere. Women of all shapes and sizes, from many diverse backgrounds, and all levels of ability. Our first #RealSweatyWomen story comes from Courtney Marques: "In early October I traveled to Baby Watoto in Gulu, Uganda with the organization Watoto. I met this baby named Gift. I learned her mother passed away while giving birth to her. It struck too close to home as I too could have been that mom, and our 3 children orphaned. Without the intervention of c-sections it could have been me and consequently, them. How blessed I am (we are) with 1st world medicine! Uganda This shot was captured and it represents the candid 2 hours I spent with baby Gift...just so happens I also had my selection of Sweaty Bands in Africa as well. Another part of my story is my journey in athleticism. As a young adult, I was always pleasantly plump....minus the pleasant. :) After delivering our third child I was pushing 210 pounds. I was unhappy with how I felt and looked. I was diagnosed with degenerative disc disease in my neck and became even more discouraged about a lifelong need for pain management. I struggled to play on the floor with our toddler aged children because of the pain and discomfort. I tried many methods to deal with the pain and then...I had an idea, maybe my weight was causing some of my health issues. So, I started moving. I started walking. And, I changed my portion sizes. Since then, I have managed to keep off more than 50lbs. I never touched a diet pill or forced meal replacement into my plan. My goal was to simply lose weight and keep it off. Through diet and exercise I can now run after our 8, 6 and 4 year old and I am no longer on a daily pain medication. We live our lives around staying active and I wouldn't have it any other way.

    Courtney's transformation between December 2006 and April 2015.
    I am a self proclaimed sweet-aholic. My gym time has allowed me to get stronger and given me the freedom to enjoy a little treat each day. Weight loss shouldn't be solely about denying oneself for a return investment of a pretty silhouette in the mirror. But rather, about setting a goal and living within a healthy boundary to reach it. The key word here is healthy . This means we must consume calories, healthy ones. Being active is just another part of that equation to remaining healthy. As a result, I am smaller now than I was in high school. I have maintained my new weight and become more toned as the years have passed. I've set healthy boundaries with food and exercise. My goal is to stay active for many years to come. My parents always told me, I could do anything I put my mind to. I'm here to tell you, that once I took my health serious. Nothing was going to hold me back from achieving that goal. #unstoppable" - Courtney Marques Each woman has a different reason to get sweaty. What's yours? Tell us your story by sending a video or photo to or #RealSweatyWomen on social media. Don't hold back, you could be featured in our very own Sweaty Bands video!

    October means Halloween, pumpkins, and most importantly PINK! As many of you are aware October is National Breast Cancer Awareness month. There are many actions to be taken than wearing pink during the month of October.

    There are plenty of ways to support Breast Cancer Awareness. Here are just a few that we love here at Sweaty Bands:
    • Girls night in! Who needs to go out to have a good time? Skip girls night out and have a girls night in. All of the money that you would have spent on Uber's, a fancy dinner, etc., donate it to raising much needed funds to help beat breast cancer!

    • Send your Mom, Aunt, loved ones a Momm-o-grams
    • Give a meaningful gift! We found this super cute craft idea on the 'One She, Two She' blog, titled "Help Us Kiss Cancer Goodbye." This cute, yet very informative idea promotes the understanding of why regular breast cancer screening and early prevention is so important. The blog features printouts with early detection statistics, so all you need to do is buy the kisses, plastic bags, and then print and assemble. As we said earlier, Trick-o-Treater's aren't the only ones who deserve some candy. Print this adorable idea and share it with all the woman you love in your life.
    But really, grab those pumpkins and go get a mammogram! ;) Happy October!
