Empowering Modesty: Ayana Active's Innovation in Weightlifting Attire

As part of Ayana Active's ongoing innovation series, the creation of the first-ever modest weightlifting outfit marks a significant milestone in the intersection of fashion, functionality, and inclusivity.

The journey began when Ayana received a call from Mubarakah Ibrahim, Fit Muslimah health coach, seeking assistance for an upcoming weightlifting tournament. Recognizing the specific requirements of the sport—where visibility of body movements was crucial for fairness—Ayana understood the challenge of creating a modest outfit that adhered to industry standards.

Navigating the intricacies of athletic regulations, Mubarakah obtained a religious waiver allowing full-body coverage and the freedom to design a unique jumpsuit. The collaboration between Ayana Active and Fit Muslimah was driven by shared values of modesty, functionality, style, and self expression.

Through meticulous attention to detail, Ayana crafted a lightweight jumpsuit with a front zipper for ease of wear, accompanied by a coordinating hijab and bandana in the Fit Muslimah brand's signature colors. The first meeting, held over video, showcased Ayana's commitment to understanding her client's needs and translating them into functional yet fashionable designs.

The fitting session at the Danville DRIVE Business Incubator epitomized the collaborative spirit of the project, with minimal adjustments needed thanks to Ayana's dedication to perfectionism. The custom outfit not only met but exceeded Mubarakah’s expectations , empowering her to compete with confidence and style.

The success of the modest weightlifting outfit extends beyond the competition arena. With multiple wins under her belt, the health coach continues to wear the jumpsuit, feeling empowered and true to herself with each lift.

Ayana Active's foray into inclusive athletic wear exemplifies the brand's commitment to addressing the diverse needs of athletes. Whether in weightlifting or other sports with unique dressing challenges, Ayana Active invites individuals to reach out and experience the transformative power of personalized, fashionable solutions.

The idea that you can turn a drawing into an outfit- a dream into reality is insane. Especially when it’s used for inclusion. I love that there are modest workout choices nowadays because it’s soooooo hard to find something that doesn’t show everything. Thank you for being inclusive and innovative!

What is Lorem Ipsum? Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum. Why do we use it? It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using 'Content here, content here', making it look like readable English. Many desktop publishing packages and web page editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and a search for 'lorem ipsum' will uncover many web sites still in their infancy. Various versions have evolved over the years, sometimes by accident, sometimes on purpose (injected humour and the like).
