The Inspiration for the Strong Athletic Mom Shirts

Strong Athletic founder Nadia Kean created the first Strong Athletic Mom shirt in 2016 as a nod to her mom, sisters and best friends who were moms. Nadia and her sister were raised by their Mom and have a lot of pride when it comes to Strong Mamas! Eventually Nadia's sister Lisa also became a Mom and then one by one many of the best friends she grew up with also became parents.

As many of Nadia's friends became moms, they slowly started putting their hobbies and sports to the side so that they could prioritize their children. In most countries in the world, women are not expected to play sports past high school and college. If women do play sports beyond their early 20s, it is not likely that they will make their income from playing sports. The same can not be said for men. Men are more likely to make a living playing sports, or if not making a living, playing on some type of sports team recreationally. This means that a high number of children grow up watching dad play sports, but they don't see mom plays sports. 

Playing sports, being on a team and being physically active and strong are important factors to a person's personal self image and self worth. It's important that women not only play sports and remain physically active into their 20s, 30s, 40s, 50s, 60s, and beyond but it's also important that children see women playing sports. Women in athletics needs to be normalized. It should not be something that girls and women sometimes do, it needs to be something that is expected. There are still come countries in the world where a woman playing sports or doing something physically active is still considered a sign of defiance. For men, it is not the same. It is because of this that Strong Athletic wants to put women forward in sports. This is the exact reason that we want to support Moms in sports and athletics. 

Being a parent is highly romanticized, but it's not always a walk in the part. As we write this, it is April 2020, and the world is dealing with the most impactful pandemic in 100 years. How does this have to do with Motherhood? Many Moms are finding that not only can they no longer play their sport and see their teammates, but they are also isolated to staying at home. Many moms are working from home and also they are taking the role of teacher because schools are closed down. These means that many moms (and parents in general) are taking on responsibilities that they've never had to do before, such as being the key teacher for their child, while also juggling full time jobs. It takes a dedicated parent, with a lot of love to do all of the jobs they are now responsible for. 

Are you a parent, but not a mom? Perhaps you're a dad or you're a nonbinary parent? Keep your eyes out for announcements about the release of our Strong Athletic Dad and our Strong Athletic Parent shirts! 


The words "Strong Athletic Mom" and the Strong Athletic logo are printed on the front, the logo is also printed on the back.  The are for this design is based on the original art work by Cristen Perks. Angel Ortega of Garzig design, based in South Austin, Texas, designed the Strong Athletic logo.
