HOW $WEATPANT MILLIONAIRE STARTED:
Although $weatpant Millionaire Clothing Company started in 2016, the story began in 2003.
In 2003, Founder Mark Langowski started his professional career in sweatpants as a personal trainer at Equinox Fitness Club in Darien, Connecticut. After quickly rising to the top of his field, Mark left Equinox to go out on his own. Upon leaving, he began Body By Mark In-Home Wellness. As of 2019, Body By Mark is one of the largest and most respected in-home wellness companies in the country, with hundreds of clients and over 25 fitness professionals working for him.
The journey along the way is what inspired Mark to write a book about the business side of the fitness industry with the title “Sweatpant Millionaire” (not yet published). Mark’s degree in business and marketing is what helped him turn his passion for fitness into a lucrative career, not only helping people get healthier, but also enabling other wellness professionals to make a great living.
Along the way, not only did Mark build a very profitable fitness empire, but he also got involved in real estate investing. It had always been of interest to him and he saw the opportunity in 2003 to start a real estate investment company that would flip houses as well as manage properties.
Mark was a pioneer of the $weatpant Millionaire lifestyle; work hard, stay focused and never give up. With that; anything is possible, even while wearing sweats:)
Our company is meant to empower and inspire traditional and non traditional ways of being successful.
Not all millionaires wear suits to work; some wear $weats.
A NOTE FROM THE FOUNDER:
Fashion was important to me ever since I was a kid. I grew up reading my fathers GQ magazines and being amazed by the looks that they would put together. My father always dressed impeccably and instilled in me that you want to always dress your best because people will take you more seriously if you do.
I built this company with my passion for fashion but also my passion for business & entrepreneurship. If you are not passionate about what you do, it will feel like a job and it will show in your work. I can’t wait to get out of bed in the morning to work on one of my three businesses. (Fitness, Real Estate & Clothing).
I was inspired by reading books about great entrepreneurs such as Richard Branson (Virgin), Amancio Ortega (Zara Founder) and Steve Jobs (Apple). They inspire me because they created great brands and great wealth in a non-traditional way. They weren’t simply trading stocks to get rich, they created something massive out of nothing. I want to create a lifestyle clothing brand that will support this way of thinking and way of living. I want to empower and inspire those that are following their passion; not just to become rich, but to build something that people haven’t seen before.
