FORTIUS is a sportswear brand and online retailer based in the United Kingdom. We are focused on the journey one takes through life embodied in the pursuit of athletic excellence and constantly developing strength. Our logo represents the cycle of growth and development.
To inspire you to be a better version of yourself.
After playing a number of sports in Nigeria and finally rugby both at amateur and semi-professional level in the UK for a decade the decision to create FORTIUS SPORTSWEAR was created by TJ Okeshola. The decision was based on a desire to create effective performance wear with a good fit for athletes of all sizes ensuring they’re also suitable for lifestyle requirements.
Growing up in Nigeria, TJ witnessed a lot of talent that wasn’t acted upon because sports aren’t encouraged in Nigeria but instead professions such as doctors, lawyers and engineers. FORTIUS SPORTSWEAR was created in 2018 to help people unlock their full potential and aspire to be the best version of themselves. FORTIUS (Latin for STRONGER) is not simply about physical strength, it’s more about the state of mind, the ability to pick yourself up and keep going when life gets hard, to stay driven towards your goals against all odds.
