WARFIT Clothing Co.
The War Within
Warfit Clothing Co. was founded in October 2014. From its inception, it was truly original as a lifestyle brand that brought emotion and heart that its customers could feel and experience when opening their orders. Warfit's primary focus is bringing its supporters premium apparel, with a message to inspire the masses. We are a one of a kind brand for everyday life on the street and in the gym.
How WARFIT Clothing Co. Began:
Erika always wanted to reach out to a broader base of people. To tell her story, to inspire, to show people that they are not alone, and to motivate others with similar backgrounds and circumstances. To show people that problems are a part of life, but that they are not life. If she could help just one person in some way, and give them the help or motivation she didn't have on her journey, then everything that she'd been through would of been worth it.
Warfit Clothing Co. was a spinoff of a personal charity program Erika was running, called The Warfit Program, to help others in similar situations come back to fitness/and health through free coaching. She felt that formulating a brand based on her message; not to go through life a victim of your circumstances, would make that message tangible and empower those who wore it. Creating a community of strength.
The Founder's message to you:
Founder Erika Garcia's Story:
Where I started from, I was never suppose to get this far, I was lucky to even be up on my feet. I’ve been fighting through a long journey back to fitness since a car accident in 2004. At the dark end of the tunnel, I was in a wheelchair due to a severe leg injury, had lost my thyroid completely, was enduring 15-17 migraines a month, and over 275 lbs due to all the medical issues. Instead of giving up, I found every reason to fight, and get angry at the cards I was dealt with at such an early age in life.
The anger, became the fuel that lead me through to my recovery and gave me limitless determination and will to rehabilitate and train to get stronger. So what exactly happened? In short, it was all bad luck, being in the wrong place at the wrong time, and bad genetics triggered by trauma of the accident. Today, I call this dark period of my life character building…as every portion of my body and mind would be put to the test over the next ten years rehabilitating and training my leg and body from a post accident state of atrophy, injury, and obesity, while mastering my metabolism and thyroid medication, seeing countless specialists, and undergoing many reconstructive surgeries. I was told by doctors, specialists, friends, and family that what I’ve done could not be done. But I did it.
Today I am fit, strong, and as healthy as I can be (albeit the migraines, and thyroid issues will never go away), coaching and motivating others with similar stories and goals, giving them the push they need to succeed even in their darkest times. My passion reaches people, and I’m able to connect with them and their struggle on a personal level, because I share the same struggles they do every day. I try to give them the help I didn’t have on my journey, while showing them that willpower can achieve anything if you don’t give up.
