Founder, CEO, and head coach, Micah, was inspired to build a brand that represented the idea that we should always look for ways to build ourselves everyday for a better tomorrow. whether its in the gym, our jobs, relationships, or any other aspect of our lives, "always working" is a concept we should all strive for. After teaching and creating exercise and nutrition plans for best friends and co-founders, Max and Kory, the three of them knew this mentality of "Always Working" was something to be taught. each of the founders value the human condition and allow our experiences light the path of our futures. Together, A.W.A.Y. Athletics has been deeply committed to helping others harness the past to transform their tomorrow by always working.
Living is moving and the moment we stop moving, we stop living. From the "average Joe" to seasoned athletes still young at heart, everyone deserves the chance to live in a healthy body. If you have a body, you are an athlete. Although it’s not always easy, with exercise, healthy eating, and a willingness to challenge our own perceived limitations, each of us have the tools necessary to stay anchored young and make everyday the best day of our lives; age is just a number.
