Meet Jake Howells: The Founder of Gym Deck Apparel

September 09 21:02 2020

Meet Jake Howells: the CEO and founder behind Gym Deck Apparel. Gym Deck Apparel is a Gen Z run clothing brand that is dedicated to providing you with the best athletic apparel in the market. The brand was founded in June of 2020 by Howells and has since expanded its product line due to the success of its first couple drops. Gym Deck set out with one main goal: to create high-quality apparel for high-intensity athletes. When speaking to Howells, he told us “we take pride in the fact that our apparel is both stylish, affordable, and durable.” 

This 19-year-old entrepreneur is currently studying Finance at the University of Scranton. Howells started this business mid-pandemic which some said was the worst time to start a business but he thought otherwise – “Over the recent lockdown with the pandemic, I decided to take advantage of the extra time I had and began to conceptualize a business.”  Over the next couple of months, he turned that idea into what is now Gym Deck Apparel. With the help of a few friends, Howells was able to take Gym Deck from just a concept into a fully functioning, profitable business.

Now being back at college full-time, we wanted to know how Howells balances a full college workload with his business. He told us, “along with running Gym Deck, I cook at a restaurant so my schedule is pretty tight. It’s usually going to school, going to work, and then the time in between is what I put towards working on my business.”

Howells’s most satisfying moment so far has been when he made his first sale. “I had put so much time and work into setting the company up and getting it ready for launch,” he says, “it almost didn’t even seem real. So when I actually launched the site and got my first sale, it made all that work worth it a hundred times over and I’ve been hooked ever since.”

You may ask how Gym Deck is different from other fitness apparel brands. The brand is constantly evolving with new designs and high-quality materials in order to make their clothes perfect for wearing during a workout.

This is just the start of a long era of Gym Deck Apparel, with new product lines and influencer marketing in the works the brand is set out to be one of the biggest fitness clothing brands on the market. Intrigued? Stay tuned on what they are up to on their website.
