'We promote confidence, sisterhood, and healthy lifestyles through the lens of track and field women and girls.' - Mechelle, Founder
Track and Field Olympian, Mechelle Lewis Freeman, started TrackGirlz in 2015 when she realized the powerful influence of the world-class women and girls in the sport was being overlooked. She wanted to start a brand that provided sport specific female role models while also creating ways to develop talent and share the authentic “Fast, Fit & Fly” Track Girl culture. We promote confidence, community, and healthy lifestyles through our fitness events, leaderships camps, and athletic leisure apparel to empower communities while helping to create and maintain exposure for track girls on a daily basis. And if you don’t run, jump, or throw, don’t worry, you can always channel your “Inner Track Girl” fierce mindset. We want all women and girls to know the power of track girls around the world and the opportunities in the sport that leads to long-term success.
The global “Track Girl” culture already exists. If you are a female actively competing in the sport, you are called a Track Girl – no matter if you run, jump, or throw. And, once a Track Girl, always a Track Girl. It’s a community of powerful women and girls who compete or have competed in the sport and live the lifestyle of being a person confident in their skin and a competitor both on and off the track and field.
Our goal is simple: Share the energizing spirit of a Track Girl to our audiences to empower their everyday lives. #TrackGirlz #FastFitFly
