Who Are We?
Stemming from the words “Holy” and “Strength”. A decisive term for deriving your strength and validation from God. True Strength that cannot be taken away, because it comes directly from the cross.
We uphold a set of core values in life. We stand up for what we believe in. We fight temptation. We are decisive, passionate, and aggressive in our pursuit of faith. We strive to negate the false “ego” and pride that at best is a thinly fake version of strength. We do not seek validation from others, or from the rest of society. Our lives have been validated by God from the day we were born, and that is all of the security we need. We understand our self worth yet are never content with stagnancy. There is a fire that burns within us to strive to become a better version of ourselves each day. To set an example. To break down barriers, overcome obstacles, and be a leader in society. Representing what it means to be a REAL, powerful version of who we are meant to be.
We represent the truth of the cross that Jesus died on for us. And there is nothing stronger than that.
We are HolStrength.
HolStrength is a family run business between my brother and I who share a passion for both Jesus and fitness!
We started this brand out of our mother's basement in January of 2021 with the goal to create high quality clothing that glorifies Christ. Throughout our journey an amazing community of people have been brought together and every day we thank God for the ability to get up and do what we do! Currently we operate in a small warehouse in Grand Rapids, MI!
We want to make even a small dent in the fitness industry that changes the way we look at everything we do. 1 Corinthians 10:31 tells us “Whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.” Meaning we aim to make Christ the center of all that we do, giving Him thanks throughout our entire day. We are not here to idolize ourselves, but treat our body like the temple that God wanted us to. At the same time, this does not mean we have to be passive as Christians. Jesus was a warrior and a fighter. He was aggressive in His pursuit of faith yet a caring light to those around Him. Our goal as a brand is to carry this message throughout our community, continuing to recognize where our true strength derives from.
A Word Of Encouragement
When you derive your strength from Christ, it CANNOT be taken away from you. What comes directly from God is already inside of you when you accepted Christ as your savior. We do not need to go searching anywhere else for validation, it has already been proclaimed and given to us the day Jesus died on the cross.
Romans 8:10-11 tells us "And Christ lives within you, so even though your body will die because of sin, the Spirit gives you life because you have been made right with God. The Spirit of God, who raised Jesus from the dead, lives in you."
We do not need validation from social media, our friends, from society, substances, or anything else external other than God. You have everything you need right inside of you. You have been given all of the tools to grow and become the best version of yourself you can be in the eyes of the Lord.
