As a family, we have moved around the United States and Japan for the past 19 years. We moved to Lafayette Indiana and immediately knew this was the town we wanted to settle down in.
For many years our dream has been to open a business. As a couple, we bring both aspects of fitness to our business: someone working towards staying fit and a competitive athlete; Tami enjoys working out for her health while Travis enjoys training to compete in triathlons, marathons, and multi-sport events.
Our desire is to provide Lafayette and the surrounding communities with access to high quality athletic apparel and accessories normally found in bigger cities, without the drive! We believe everyone can achieve any goal they set their mind to, no matter how big or small.
Tami is her family’s number one fan. Watching the family compete is such a treat. She is most impressed with the “underdog” that has the dedication to push themselves to reach their goals. She enjoys cross training, jogging, and Seidokan karate. For the last several years she has homeschooled their two girls and toted them around to swim practices. Before that, Tami was a Sr. Project Research Associate in the clinical research field assisting in the documentation of experimental medication and therapies.
Travis has been in service to this great country of ours for over 18 years. He loves the sport of triathlon and has competed at all levels of triathlon, from sprint to Ironman distances and has completed numerous marathons. Family vacations are planned according to race locations! His desire is to provide the Greater Lafayette Indiana area and surrounding counties with access to a specialty store to support the three disciplines of triathlon: swimming, biking, and running.
