This is the front of the Strong Athletic Chronically Ill black muscle tank with white ink. For those living with chronically illness, the world sometimes writes us off as incapable of being athletes, but we all know that's a lie. Standup and be seen, be proud, be strong. #strongathleticchronicallyill #strongathletic

About the Strong Athletic Chronically Ill Flowy Muscle Tank Top

This shirt was requested by roller derby skater Killanois from Windy City in Chicago.  She both plays sports and lives with the autoimmune disorder Hashimoto's. Founder of Strong Athletic, Nadia Kean, also lives with Hashimoto's and knows the ups and downs that humans with the disorder feel everyday. From brain fog, to apathy to lethargy, it impacts everyone differently. In the message that she wrote after she received her tank she said, "This past weekend I played my first division 1 playoff knowingly ill. I've trained all year for this weekend in hopes to advance to champs... I'm so proud of my team and myself for how far we've come. I feel like I played well even if the score doesn't that. I will continue to work hard and strive for champs with my team in the coming years and prove that even with chronic illness, you can compete at the highest level of sport." We couldn't agree more with Killa and we're so proud that she wanted to represent herself as a #strongathletic athlete.

About the Shirt

The words "Strong Athletic Chronically Ill" and the Strong Athletic logo are printed in white on the front, the logo is also printed on the back.  The tank is a black marble, which means it is not solid black, rather it has a grainy look to it, making it our favorite tank that we carry. 

The shirt is made by Bella and Canvas.  It is designed to fit loose and flowy. Wear it with your favorite sports bra, because it's going to show a little near the bottom of the armholes. This shirt does not shrink after the first wash. The color of the shirt and the ink stay vibrant after many washes. 

Features: Sideseamed. Relaxed, drapey fit. Low cut armhole. Curved bottom hem.

Solid Colors: 65% poly 35% viscose, 30 single 3.7 oz. (Ath. Heather - 52% poly 48% viscose)
Marble Colors: 91% poly 9% combed and ring-spun cotton, 40 single 3.5 oz.
Slub Colors: 50% poly 37.5% combed and ring-spun cotton 12.5% rayon, 30 single 4.0 oz.

    Love this tank

    Posted by Mary Lee on Jan 21st 2020

    Not only am I sending a super strong message, I’m strong despite and because of my chronic illness, this tank is also made of lightweight material that’s super soft. In summary, inspiring message and great shirt feel.

    As someone who deals with several chronic illnesses, but still tries to maintain some level of physical activity, I was excited to see this shirt. Rather than hide from being ill, I embrace it, while acknowledging that I am strong (mentally and physically) and that I am, in some way, an atlhete. I may not be the fastest or strongest, but I still am out there in spite of everything and that really is all that matters to me. I struggle with things against my skin and found this shirt was so soft. I could have gone down a size, but that is because I shrunk (and has nothing to do with the shirt). It washed well and is durable. It is still a staple. Thanks for making it!

    I'm a roller derby skater with a chronic autoimmune disease, and I love being able to be honest about the fullness of my experience and also bust stereotypes while I'm wearing this shirt!

    As a skater with Rhuematoid Arthritis and Hashimotos Disease it's nice to have a shirt to wear that brings the invisible diseases to light. The shirt is great quality and I love the color. Thanks

    Amazing shirt

    Posted by Stephanie on Dec 18th 2019

    I am so happy and excited for this shirt. Its fits well and I have had no issues with the logo on the shirt. I got this shirt to stand proud that I am chronically ill and still am strong and can kick ass. I wear it as a reminder and as well to help remind myself when I am having a tough go.

    Love it!

    I was so excited when I saw this somewhere on fb that I immediately ordered one. It's awesome to have some recognition as athletes who also have a chronic illness. I get tons of compliments when I wear this & have derby friends who have also ordered as well after seeing mine. I also feel like a bada** when I wear this shirt. Super soft and fits well.

    Love the tank

    This shirt is a perfect reminder. Some days are hard but I’m still athletic. Fits great and is true to size. Soft fabric, thin so I wear a tank under it.
