What It Takes To Be Elite

What does it take to be an elite athlete in your sport? What does it take to be the best?


At Hammer Strength Apparel we stress five different traits. These traits separate the good from the elite… they’re characteristics that allow an athlete to be extraordinary.


1) Elite Athletes Seek Challenges: Hammer Strength Apparel athletes don’t hide from a challenge, and they don’t back down from an opportunity. When their number is called, they rise to the occasion. Hammer Strength Apparel athletes take on intense physiological conditioning and they are rewarded for their dedication and hard work.


2) They Are Focused: Hammer Strength Apparel athletes share single-minded dedication to performing and achieving. When it’s time to load the plates on the bar and grind out repetition after repetition, set after set, their mind is fixated only on becoming the biggest, fastest, and strongest athlete they can be.


3) They Are Uncompromising: Elite athletes don’t make excuses. They face challenges head on and courageously, and are rewarded with outstanding results and the respect of teammates, coaches and classmates.


4) Elite Athletes Outperform: They aren’t okay with average. Hammer Strength Apparel athletes aspire to achieve great accomplishments. They outwork others in the weight room and on the field.


5) They Are Leaders: Embracing challenges results in personal achievement, and leadership by example. Hammer Strength Apparel athletes aren’t content to follow, they want to lead.


A Hammer Strength Apparel athlete is special, one who displays the qualities above day after day, workout after workout and game after game. Be an elite athlete, be Hammer Strength strong.

Why We're Excited to Team Up With TCYFL

Why We’re Excited to Team Up With TCYFL


Youth football should be about a lot more than scoring touchdowns, making big plays or winning. The Chicagoland Youth Football League (TCYFL) seems to understand this. The league, which is the largest independent youth football league in America and serves 38 communities around Chicago and in southern Wisconsin, stresses the development of sportsmanship, character, teamwork, leadership and football fundamentals. The TCYFL also has high standards for safety and concussion prevention, and is a part of USA Football’s Heads Up program, a national initiative to teach proper and safer tackling form. The league is led by Geoff Meyer, who has decades of coaching experience and is the current Chairman of USA Football’s National Football Commissioner’s Advisory Committee.


It’s clear that there are plenty of reasons why it makes sense for Hammer Strength Apparel to partner with the TCYFL.


We’re just getting started with our partnership with the league. We made a trip to the All-TCYFL East vs. West game in mid-July where we provided each of the 80 players in the game with a certificate for Hammer Strength Apparel. It’s our goal to keep these youth players cool and comfortable while they’re on the gridiron.


This season, we will select a “Player of the Week” based not only on game performance but also on character and sportsmanship. We plan to donate $5,000 in Hammer Strength Apparel to the TCYFL Cares Program, which provides sports equipment to underprivileged youth.


We’re delighted to team up with the TCYFL, a league that’s doing things right when it comes to promoting youth sports.
