It all started when Amy Cochrane was at her breaking point. “I was at the gym, doing a seemingly never-ending plank, when I looked down at my blank wrist and realized how great it would be to have something encouraging there,” she remembers.
Thus, the Motivate Wrap. Made of stretchy fabric wrap, each is adorned with an aluminum or copper pendant stamped with a motivational motto like "dream big," "be BRAVE," "BELIEVE in yourself," and "be the best version of YOU." The 30-plus mottos range from “hard-core motivational to life inspirational.” Some of them are funny. All of them are better messages to gift your preteen daughter than a half-shirt.
Cochrane, an avid bicyclist, runner, and Nordic skier, has had many motivating mentors in her life. “I wanted to find a way to be able to pass this inspiration and support on to others.” Momentum also makes other workout-friendly jewelry, including earrings, necklaces, headbands, and a line of motivational shoe charms particularly popular among men. Momentum even makes custom-stamped pendants and charms.
