We Are WOD Gear
The vision for WOD Gear Clothing Company began in 2010 with Gabriel Pelino. Gabriel, the dreamer, mentor, friend, published author and entrepreneur, nurtured his passion for fitness. He built his vision of launching an all encompassing athletic brand, geared toward the Everyday Athlete, with those around him. From the personal attention and encouragement of close friends and others, the dream became a reality.
In the beginning, WOD Gear was started with only four T-Shirt designs, knowing that one day it would offer a full line of athletic apparel, which it now does. All of it's products are made in Downtown Los Angeles, CA. Today, the heartbeat of WOD Gear lie in it's team, Abassadors, and customers around the globe. WOD Gear strives to impact each indivudual by celebrating them and providing an experience, through it's brand, by providing positive messages.
Within many of it's pieces of clothing, WOD Gear also has a strong desire to "give back" to the community, through it's "Purpose over Profit" campaigns, as well as gathering our Ambassadors to participate in local non-profit activities. Gabriel believes that as a brand, WOD Gear MUST be socially conscious and care for those in need! "If we fail to look after those less fortunate than us then our gain is worthless!" We want to be a positive force and influence within the fitness community and beyond! We feel that it is also important to invest in cases, outside ourselves, that will impact lives around the world in a positive way and make a difference!
