We are delighted to announce that Gym+Coffee is Official Clothing Partner of Wellfest 2017. It has been a whirlwind few months for us since launching the brand in January. We have had the most amazing feedback and what makes us most proud is seeing the community continue to grow.
Cultural trends are incredible to watch across the world and closer to home too. Whether this interests you or not, the cultural change taking place in Ireland right now hits you square in the face wherever you look. Across all walks of life, people are changing their attitudes and behaviours, reflecting new values they now prioritise. A profound event like the recession always shakes things up but who’d have thought the effects would be so significant.
It’s been 3 weeks since our launch and there is certainly a lot for us to reflect on. The build up to launching our site was pretty crazy but on Wednesday 18th of January we sat there at 6am and watched our site go live. We anxiously waited until about 7:30am, we figured this would be a good time for people on their phones while commuting, and we sent out a few posts on Instagram, FB, and Twitter.
To us, coffee represents so much more than just a caffeine kick to start the day. From visiting and working in cafes all around the world we have witnessed first hand how the coffee culture has grown in recent years. While it’s great to get a hot drink, going for a coffee is so much more than that.
Tomorrow, we will officially launch Gym+Coffee. Needless to say, we are incredibly nervous. We are asking ourselves so many questions: what if it launches and nothing? What if it takes off? What if we’ve got it completely wrong?
