When my grandfather invented a tricycle for a child with cerebral palsy. This story and news clippings have led to my inspiration. Little did I know that over the years of working together in his basement would serve as the foundation for my entrepreneurial spirit.
I knew how precious time was and how busy our lives can be. If only I could make every step count…and then some, suddenly resistance activewear was born. I felt such a strong desire to bring this product to you that I left behind my financial job in China to create Sweetflexx.
With no venture backing, I set out to acquire a patent. A kind lawyer who wasn’t so sure what to think offered to help me shape the claims while I wrote the majority of the patent.
Having put in hours of stitching for my first prototype, I headed to New York’s famous Garment District in hopes of a better prototype. With no background or knowledge in fashion, every manufacturer rejected me, but I eventually found a company willing to take the risk. A year was spent perfecting the pants, developing just the right fabric, and integrating the resistance features.
We are excited to bring this product and a whole new lineup to you. With ongoing sports lab research and plans to delve into the medical benefits, Sweetflexx is taking off! We plan to continue my grandfather’s legacy, and just like he did, make life a little sweeter for you.
