Athletegy: A Review of My Order
I reviewed the Athletegy website while updating another blog post. I decided to purchase a pair of shorts and a t-shirt for a review. The sizing for the Quad Short runs from small to extra-large. I could not determine which size would fit me. I sent a question to the customer service about this. I received a reply from Andrew.
After reading Andrew’s email, I decided to try on the extra-large. I would guess the extra large would fit waists measuring 36-40 inches. I note that there is the brand offers a 14-day try-on period, so you could buy two sizes and return the one that does not fit. Also, I selected the large size for the Ace Tee.
The price for the clothing is on the high side (58 U.S. dollars for the Quad Short and the same price for the Ace Tee). The price is comparable to the pricing of other high-end workout shorts and t-shirts.
In addition, I have been a follower of Andrew’s social media, so I expect that (1) I am helping a small business with owners with whom I am familiar and (2) that I can communicate with them about purchase-related issues.
|Quad Short (five-inch inseam and has a liner)||88 percent polyester, 12 percent Spandex|
|Ace Tee||81 percent polyester, 14 percent cotton, 5 percent elastane|
The website is built with Shopify so I did not experience any website or payment problems.
I paid for the purchase and received it within three days (the standard U.S. Postal Service delivery time between New York and Maryland).
|Fabrics for Workout Clothes|
|Polyester||Lightweight, wrinkle-resistant, durable, sweat resistant||Retains odors, bacteria can grow on the fabric|
|Spandex||Elastic (permits full range of motion)||Can lose elasticity if tumble dried.|
|Cotton||Washable, does not hold odors||Absorbs sweat.|

The package arrived in a compostable black bag.
Inside is a white bag that contains the clothing that I ordered (wrapped in white tissue paper), a postcard (with a thank-you message from Andrew and Michael (a nice touch that is appreciated). As discussed earlier, there is a return label if the clothes do not fit.
The t-shirt fits well. The fabric is soft to the touch and is lightweight.
The shorts are mid-thigh on me. There is also a mesh material toward the top of the back of the shorts. I am guessing this feature is to allow better air circulation for runners. The shorts’ inner stitching and overall construction are neat and well done, as expected for the price point.
I used them for a home workout, which included deadlifts and dumbbell squats—the clothes allowed for a full range of motion during the training.
The clothes are well made and perform as advertised. In addition, you get to communicate with the owners who thank you for your business (a sadly rare business behavior). The price point is higher; however, the clothing should have a long life with high-quality and durable materials.
The brand explained that the brand will be adding more products for sale. I review them to see if I see other items I would buy.

Several other blogs that Andrew spoke with—
Interview with Willpower Magazine
Andrew spoke with Willpower Magazine for an interview. Andrew discusses his start in fitness with school sports. Andrew started weight training in college. Over time, Andrew worked with a number of personal trainers; he felt he learned the exercises best when he taught himself.
Andrew’s notable muscle group is his thighs. He explained in the interview that he initially did not like having big thighs.
As a young man, I hated my muscular legs because they made it difficult to fit into clothes. It’s funny because now I think they are my best physical asset.
A lot of body development is accepting who and what you are and recognizing your own assets.Andrew Morrill in Willpower Magazine
