Be an Athlete

It’s often difficult to find quality gym-wear that crosses function with style well. However, Be an Athlete (BAA), formed by Andrew Xeni and Phil Learney in 2013 does just that. BAA is a ‘lifestyle brand’ delivering quality and style in a luxury sports inspired clothing brand for both men and women.

Xeni and Learney, acknowledging a gap in the market for premium sportswear, combined their industry experience in fashion manufacturing with brand building knowledge and an athletic ambition.

BAA uses soft materials and subtle branding to create a line that looks, feels and performs with aptitude. Available in two lines; classic and premium, all hoodies have been designed with compartments for MP3 players whilst leggings, bottoms, tops and on-trend snapbacks come in varying styles and sizes. Whether training, travelling or for everyday use, Be An Athlete delivers smart, comfortable and luxury sports clothing.
