Q: Can you give us more insights into your offering?
A: Our fitness clothing is designed for athletic people who are on the go. Our focus is on creating and cultivating designs that work at the gym, for a meeting or casual lunch, and/or for running errands around town, without sacrificing style or comfort. We are certainly an athleisure wear company, combining current fashion trends with extreme comfort and durability.

Q: What is the best thing about your company that people might not know about?
A: The business, Pheel, was created and is still run by two women who have been best friends since the age of fourteen. Focussed on fashion and pheeling good our entire lives, we are working mothers, entrepreneurs and sports enthusiasts.We spent many hours working out, yoga, boxing, hiking, tennis and noticed a lack of cool, exciting and flattering activewear. We spent a year, almost daily, creating a fitness brand that encompasses all our personal wishes, but also one that fills the void we saw in the marketplace.. Our true commitment has always been to empower our peers and young adults. We mentor young women and men who are interested in business,fashion,athletics etc. We hope to teach them what it takes to follow your dream and run a business. We offer a mentorship yearly for high school and college aged individuals. It’s our hope that these opportunities help develop the same feelings of confidence, resilience and motivation that our brand stands for.Activate Social Media:
