We’ve been a little quiet…

You might have noticed we’ve been a little quiet recently. Rest assured we’ve been beavering away behind the scenes: preparing, packing and shipping orders and coming up with some ace new designs. We’ve also faced a couple of small hurdles over the past three months which may have affected you. We wanted to explain what happened and to thank all our customers who have been wonderfully supportive.   We use a drop shipping service for our clothing and mugs (if you want to know more about what drop shipping is, just head here). In the lead up to Christmas the...

Happy Birthday M Squared Fitness!

Kirsty and I are members at an awesome CrossFit box in Manchester called M Squared Fitness (or CrossFit MSQD to give its affiliate name). Today M Squared is celebrating its 2nd birthday, so I thought I'd write a post about what our box means to us and how the community has helped build AMWRAP as a brand.  It's quite fitting that AMWRAP's home box is M Squared, as the gym is impeccably designed from the branding to the space itself to its apparel range. We have been training there for 18 months and as well as seeing great improvements in our...
