strong is beautiful

It's kind of crazy how therapeutic the simple act of picking up and putting down various metal objects can be, right?

When I was a little girl, I was extremely shy. I was especially shy at the gym. My parents started taking me to workout with them when I was in middle school (which in retrospect was incredibly awesome of them).

We Stand for Strength

by Sarah Wilson

Over the course of the past five years it has been my goal to strengthen and clarify the message behind Fashletics. What started as a couple charms designed by one woman has become an extensive collection of fitness jewelry and workout clothes inspired by a community of thousands - a community that believes in physical fitness as a lifestyle, not just a "quick fix" or way to get skinny...
