Meet Our JAWsome Team - the passion behind the brand!
KYM - CEO 'AKA' HEAD HONCHO
Kym is The Founder of JAW and one seriously amazing chick! She has always had an entrepreneurial flair, however a few years ago she was forced to do some real soul searching. Kym found herself at a local Affiliate and with nothing to lose but her tuck shop arms, so it was then she set about a mission to lose the flab and reclaim her life.
Being an 'all or nothing' girl, Kym threw herself into vigorous workouts and quickly got into the best shape of her life. But that's not all she got, Kym found a niche in the Fitness market where athletes had no access to appropriate weight lifting handgrips. “The training I am involved with requires a lot of lifting and my hands were torn to shreds, everyone was complaining that there was nothing on the market that was suitable, that's when the light bulb moment happened”, says Kym.
Armed with the last of her savings Kym set about purchasing a sewing machine and decided that the only way forward was to make her own set of specifically designed 'Pull Up Grips' to protect her hands and the rest is history.
That's the serious bit, but on a lighter note Kym is the runner of this tight ship and probably the funniest Head Honcho you'll ever meet. She really has to be seen (or heard) to be believed.
SEAN - OPERATIONS & LOGISTICS MANAGER aka GURU
Sean is the brawn behind the woman, and he needs to be one hell of a man to stand up to his wife on a daily basis in the JAW abode. You can see Sean daily managing orders from worldwide fans and retailers for urgent delivery. Sean's (aka Wristy) smile and wicked sense of humour surely helps to get us all through the day...
NAT - OFFICE COORDINATOR
Not only is Nat an amazing and dedicated Hardcore Athlete (with guns like that believe me, you do not want to cross her!), but in her spare time she gets into the JAW office and coordinates our office focus as well as all your orders.
ABBIE - CHIEF VISIONARY OFFICER
Make no mistake you are looking at the future of JAW. Abbie may look sweet and innocent but the apple doesn't fall far from the tree. It seems as though history may be repeating itself as Abbie is a master visionary like her mother (Kym) and as determined as a bull like her father (Sean). Watch this space as Abbie takes over not only JAW in years to come and knowing her passion plus genetics, we know she will go GLOBAL!
PAULA - SEWING MANAGER
Paula, originally from the UK, now calls AUS home and her wealth of knowledge of the factory floor has meant our sewing team is not only well entertained, but also managed to ensure the quality of our range is passed on to our JAWsome fans! When Paula's not working she enjoys being our CrossFit Clown... "one has to laugh at herself"
JAW, by design, have a wonderful team of sewers working 24-7 across Australia to bring you the JAW products you know and love.
Yep, it's true, JAW are committed to keeping our products genuinely Australian made and owned! Why? Kym's passion is quality and premium manufacture and her eye for detail means Australian made! This quality, has awarded her with the World's #1 Rated Pull Up Grips status. The JAW Passion is your reward.
