Happy Birthday, Dissident!

October 16, 2016


I'm proud to announce we are officially 1 YEAR OLD! I would personally like to thank each and every one of you for embracing the DISSIDENT brand and what we stand for. I'm humbled daily to see so many of you representing the brand, embodying the message and lifestyle. I am truly honored to be a part in so many of your personal growth stories, and I would like to share a brief behind the scenes of how DISSIDENT was born. 

When this started I had no idea what it would become. Actually I didn't set out to create a clothing brand at all; I just wanted to create something that was true to me and represented what I was most passionate about, what drove me in life and in some way give back to help raise awareness for the less fortunate. In fact the first name I came up with was MOTIV8 but I think DISSIDENT worked out better.

Sometimes in life no plan is the best plan, and you just need to take that first step. It's not about knowing the future, it’s about doing what you feel is necessary, putting in the work, having the courage and acknowledging that the self-doubt is there but making the choice to go for it anyways. I probably told myself it wasn't going to work more than a few times, but I turned that voice way down and just stuck with reaching my goal.  Long story short I worked my ass off! I still do every day to turn DISSIDENT into something amazing that can inspire and possibly make a difference in people’s lives, by encouraging every one of us to embrace the best version we can be, live on our own terms, take responsibility for our decisions and tune out self-doubt. 

The problem we all face isn't doubt itself because doubt will be there in every situation. It is about having the conviction and the confidence to believe in yourself and not make excuses knowing that no matter the odds you will prevail. Whatever you’re doubting yourself about in life my advice is just go for it, you don't need to wait for the perfect plan. Being successful in any area of your life isn't just about doing the right thing it’s about having the self-belief and resolve to move in the direction of your dreams. I really hope, if anything, our brand, culture and message can help you be the best you can be. If we can make some of the best gym wear in the industry in the process than that's just icing on the cake.


Without your support we wouldn’t have grown as quickly as we did. Every one of you plays a very important role in the development of our company. It is your enthusiasm, support and dedication that have brought us here and we shall ever remain indebted to the contributions of TEAM DISSIDENT.

We are also grateful to our customers who trusted in us to help provide quality services and products. Your demands, challenges and feedback have pushed us to go ahead and improve vigorously. Our success story remains incomplete without the support of our customers and ambassadors. Not only have you made us a part of your lives but also helped us reach out to the world. You spread the word faster and in a better way than any of our promotional means could.

I thank you on behalf of all of us at Dissident Gym Wear, we are so grateful to have you on board!  We plan to keep our business and relationship growing with you and continue to provide you nothing less than the best. We've got so much we want to accomplish this year so stay tuned!

On this commemorative day we have released a Special Edition Tune Out Hoodie! These come in black color with high quality gold foil rubberized print of our classic Dissident logo and Believe/Achieve hoodie. They also feature a unique 1YR DISSIDENT anniversary embroidered tag. These are limited quantities! It's been rumored that actual Gold flakes we're used in the print solution!! ;) So grab yours while we have them! When they're gone, they're gone!

A particularly frustrating part of struggle is the ability that it has to stop us dead in our tracks IF we allow it. The potential embarrassment of failure freezes us. The possibility for rejection discourages us. The idea of disappointment makes us check out of the game.

Our world today is a convection of deception, constantly the bullshit is on the rise, and the truth, subsurface and disregarded. We must hold true and steady the course through the lies and contradictions. We have to hold the line between our own lives, and the world that tries to breach in.

Gratitude is something we could all benefit from. Gratitude means thankfulness, counting your blessings, noticing simple pleasures, and acknowledging everything that you receive. It means learning to live your life as if everything were a miracle, and being aware on a continuous basis of how much you’ve been given. Gratitude shifts your focus from what your life lacks to the abundance that is already present.
