How bamae came to be...As many great stories begin with something you love, bamae began from a love of fitness, self-discovery and the thrill of besting sweaty workouts.
It wasn't about the gym, showboating or looking toned. It was about the journey, self-achievement, and setting personal goals and expectations.
Like many people who are proud of their journey, because every step is an achievement, bamae's founder posted to social media. Spreading love and positive vibes to help others to embrace their bodies, train on their terms, and skyrocket their confidence. Better yet, everyone was included.
However, being active on social channels means exposure to an array of expectations from people you don't even know. They tell you who you should be, what you should wear, how you should look and feel and do... it's exhausting. Where's the people celebrating you for being... well, you?
And that's where bamae comes in. You see, you're not defined by what you look like or what you do. All that matters is what you think and what you want to achieve. It's about taking steps forward, creating habits, and celebrating your wins. That's why bamae exists - to represent women of all sizes, races, ages and lifestyles on their journey. Supporting you in life and training with body-positive activewear and body-loving loungewear.
bamae is a community for likeminded women to motivate one another, share stories, celebrating wins, promote self-love and female empowerment. All the while cutting out the noise to make fitness fun for you again.
What does bamae actually mean? Well it's the letters of our three main pillars; Body & Mind & Earth. You see, we believe in both a healthy body and mind, and also connecting with humans and the earth.
Celebrating Your Individuality
Because you're all beautiful. We're inspiring women of all body types to connect and get involved in something special. Fitness that's all about having fun and getting healthy in the process. A movement that inspires you to feel confident in your skin by embracing your body and flaunting your uniqueness. Whether that's in activewear, loungewear, anywhere.
Size-inclusive. Body-inclusive. All-inclusive.
Inclusivity is the new exclusivity at bamae and you're invited! Free from expectations, we want women across the UK to explore themselves and discover their signature style on their terms. Whatever you need, bamae has your back. All our styles come in sizes 8 to 16 (We have plans to to expand this in the near future). From compression fit leggings to robust racerbacks and fleece-lined hoodies for when the air's a bit chilly after your workouts. Adapting to your lifestyle so you can enjoy fitness without stress.
Supporting Happy, Balanced Lifestyles
bamae are excited to champion and promote female empowerment and body-positivity in an industry that's still clinging onto stereotypes and unrealistic body expectations. We're tired of hearing about the perfect physique in fitness because it's a unicorn. What does exist are amazing benefits that will do wonders for any lifestyle you lead. Benefits such as more energy, strength and balance to your body and mental health.
