Meet Anthony, brand and store manager of Endeavor Athletic. He’s become a familiar face both at Suburban Square and among our local fitness community, given Endeavor’s status as a destination for stylish technical apparel for athletes of all types.
We love getting to know our tenants and all the people who make the Square so great, so we talked to Anthony to learn a little more about him and what makes Endeavor unique.
Q: Tell us a little about yourself and how you found yourself in Ardmore. When did you start working at this location?
A: I was born in Ohio, raised in North Carolina, and I’ve traveled across the country working in different roles and positions throughout the customer service world. I’ve settled in central Philly with my partner after the recent pandemic and found a new home with Endeavor Athletic as the Brand and Store Manager.
Q: What’s your favorite thing to do in the Square so far? Any favorite spots?
A: Nothing is better than a fresh cup of coffee from the Di Bruno Bros. coffee bar and a snack from Tabouli in the Ardmore Farmers Market. When I have the chance to sit down and relax, I grab dinner with my partner at Lola’s Garden and stroll the Square to shop in our neighbors’ stores.
Q: What do you think Endeavor brings to Ardmore and our visitors?
A: A taste of handcrafted products made exclusively from a team based in Philadelphia. Our motto says it best: “We’re not imitators, we’re innovators, leading the craft apparel movement for the retail fitness industry.” We’re not here to compete with anyone, but to enhance everyone’s shopping experience, specializing in athletic apparel that is both tech savvy and comfortable to wear.
Q: Any hot tips for visitors looking to get back into a fitness routine?
A: Endeavor is building a community of like-minded individuals who are looking to workout, train, and have the support of others with the same goals. We host a weekly Healthy Hour with different gyms and studios represented to showcase what they offer and how you can join. Find what works for you, what you can commit to, and join! Staying active is just the beginning of getting back on track and starting anew.
Q: Any fitness inspo you’d like to leave us with?
A: Be your biggest motivator! Pump yourself up! Prepare for your adventure and do it for you! At the end of the day, that’s what it’s all about, right?
