"Every morning, we all wake up with a choice: to focus on the obstacles in our lives, or to focus on the opportunities," says Bert Jacobs, Co-founder and Chief Executive Optimist of Life is Good. "With the introduction of this new activewear collection, our aim is to remind our community that optimism is not only a tool you can use in your everyday life but can also be used as a tool to reach your health and fitness goals."
Championing the collection, Life is Good has brought together a diverse and inspiring team of athletes to represent a range of backgrounds and abilities, showing the many ways a resilient and optimistic mindset can positively impact one's physical and mental growth.
"Sometimes it's hard to get out of our own heads and push ourselves further and higher due to perceived surface-level limitations and negative self-perception," says Akuna Robinson, Life is Good activewear team member, triple crown hiker and metal health advocate. "Through mental and physical hardship, what keeps me coming back to the trails is the powerful sense of community and genuine good vibes. Positive energy changed my life and I'm thrilled to be a part of the Life is Good activewear team to connect with others who are using activity to better themselves and their mental health."
