Built For Athletes was born out of the founder Nick’s Costello’s struggle with the hassle of lugging multiple bags to the gym to accommodate all his fitness essentials. Determined to find a solution, Nick embarked on extensive research, engaging in discussions with coaches and training partners, and realised the need for high-quality, spacious bags for serious training enthusiasts like himself.

The result of this pursuit are the iconic Built For Athletes backpacks, which have become an essential piece of kit within the CrossFit and functional fitness communities, as well as world-class partnerships with F1’s Oracle Red Bull Racing as The Official Luggage Provider, Texas A&M and Spartan Racing.
