Our Approach- Supporting Your Journey.
Within Athletes Insight’s world you will find a very active community of supportive individuals celebrating the athlete journey together. We are a tight-knit, passionate group and have an accountability group called The Uplift Community, which you can find here.
Over time, Athletes Insight’s diverse portfolio has developed into a respected, authority resource for information around training, nutrition, lifestyle, and tested product recommendations. Everything we do falls under the common goal of helping athletes.
Athletes Insight was originally founded by an international gold medallist and long-distance athlete.
Successfully funded through Kickstarter, Athletes Insight’s flagship performance sunglasses range are now worn by elite athletes all over the world, and are highly-acclaimed for their exceptional performance capabilities whilst retaining accessibility for consumers of all levels of activity. They have been a true success story, worn by professional athletes globally for running, cycling, obstacle racing, and winter sports, and much more. Our products have been featured in an ever-expanding variety of internationally recognized publications.
