Strong Athletic & Fat Muscle Tank by Strong Athletic and Chub Club

This is Wendy, the Maine Roller Derby skater who contacted Strong Athletic in 2018 and asked us if we'd consider making her this tank. We get a lot of requests for tanks, but this one really hit home for us as one that was so important because of the message behind it. Strong Athletic knows that an athlete's body size has nothing to do with their athleticism or strength. We know that there are too many humans in the world having to educate the population about the damaging impact of body shaming and we stand with humans like Wendy in their quest to do that work. Read more about why Wendy requested this tank in her blog post in our blog section. We were super stoked to collaborate with one of our favorite t-shirt company Chub Club on the release of this tank. #strongathletic , #strongathleticandfat , #strongathleticfat , #fatathlete

The Strong Athletic & Fat Design by Strong Athletic in Collaboration with Chub Club

We created the Strong Athletic & Fat shirt after a request came in from Major Chaos, aka Wendy Marois, from Maine Roller Derby. While in the process of designing this shirt and also deciding if it would say "Strong Athletic Fat" or "Strong Athletic & Fat" we met Caitlin Schultheis and Eleni Burd of Chub Club, a Fat-Positive Clothing Brand and Collective. We already knew that we were going to make this design, but knew it would be more impactful to do so with another company that had set out to specifically highlight fat fat athletes. As Caitlin and Eleni said to me when we met, "fat is our favorite f-word."

This shirt was printed by a small-locally owned printing shop in the USA. This design is based on the original Strong Athletic shirt designed by Cristen Perks in 2013. The Strong Athletic logo was created by Angel Ortega of Garzig Design. The Chub Club logo was created by Caitlin Schultheis.
