Chick: -noun. The female who just passed you.
Chicked: -verb. The act of getting passed by a female athlete.
CHICKED focuses on empowering female athletes, professionals and life-livers to get out and compete in all aspects of the Game of Life. With a spirit of female camaraderie and a bit of competitiveness, we announce our strength. We know we can do it and we are assuring the people we pass along the way are well informed!
CHICKED started in Minneapolis, by two “chicks” – Jennifer Martin and Gretchen Heim, has taken off and is proud to be empowering women with attitude-inspiring athletic wear.
Let’s be honest, you don’t need us to motivate you to finish well. We are simply giving you a billboard to wear. So while you’re concentrating on the road, the trail, the game or the finish line…those behind you are well informed.
We would like to acknowledge all of our talented and dedicated friends who are continually supportive and inspiring.
We are growing faster and we need your help! Thank you to all who have given your time and efforts
already and to those who have offered!!
We have compiled a few ideas and ways you can help us directly at CHICKED headquarters in
Minneapolis-St. Paul or by spreading the CHICKED message in YOUR community.
Our ultimate goal is to encourage ALL WOMEN to participate and push themselves to their limits. By
having our message on shirts, skirts, tanks, capris, and stickers, the females wearing them are endorsing
the confidence and attitude that IS CHICKED!
If any of the ideas below inspire you, please email us at INFO@CHICKED.com.
