Our Story in a nutshell
The Chestee concept was born out of competition about 6 years ago. Our founder, Nicole, was competing in a CrossFit competition in Miami, which called for a 20 minute AMRAP of 145lb shoulder-to-overhead movements. After just a few reps, she removed her shirt and stuffed it into the straps of her sports bra to provide a makeshift barrier between her collarbone and the barbell. Although it helped a little bit, she was sore for days after that competition-and she knew then, she needed to create a real solution.
