Hello, I'm Stacey the owner of AJ Activewear, also known as The (Crazy) Boss Lady. Let me tell you about myself, my family and why I created AJ Activewear.
I married my husband Sammy in 2013 and soon after that i became a busy mother of 3 girls and 1 boy. I am ex military having served 7 years with the British Army, within my service I have served in Afghanistan and was awarded the Queens Commendation. My military career ended when I was medically discharged in 2016. Since then I've been busy recovering from past injury and busy being mum, with my wonderful children.
THE AJ STORY
All my children were born very premature (before 30 weeks) and sadly we lost our little boy in 2016 at 2 days old. He is my inspiration that life is too short and that I still had unaccomplished ambition and dreams.
The name AJ Activewear comes from his name Henry Arthur John and he will always be my AJ even though he is now a twinkle star. Henry is a huge part of my activewear business along with his sisters and my husband.
AJ Activewear is my own brand, a small family business started in 2019 producing a range of activewear for women. 6 months later we 'started building the AJ Empire'. Say hello to AJ Activewear, Nutrition & Personal Training. Within the first lockdown of 2020, I sucessfully qualified to give nutrition and hydration advise alongside my personal training degree. My knowledge and expertise goes into active challenges (which are special additions to our fitness plans) and tailor made personal training.
At the moment our products are primarily for women, but the sky is the limit, so as the years progress so will we.
I will continuously add my own twists to designs relating them to my family and myself. Some pieces will be 'Limited Edition' so if you are looking for a unique design or style, that very few have, then take a look.
In late 2020 we tweaked our name slightly to become HENRY'S home of AJ Activewear, this change now incorporates homeware alongside our activewear.
I am keen on supporting those who have helped me and my family along the way. Take a look at 'Supporting' for a full list of charities we are raising money for. It also means a lot to me to support small businesses so I also have part of or website dedicated to promoting them. Take a look within our 'AJ STARS BLOG' sub pages to see these. We support other small businesses like ourselves so keep an eye out on our blog and Instagram and Facebook as we will feature those who we have purchased from.
