Ja’Ovvoni Garrison R.T.A (Renegade Transit Authority)

This post was published and formated for an old version of the blog.

Last week, I hung out in the Skate Kitchen with Ja’Ovvoni Garrison and chatted about his new Cleveland skateboard and clothing brand, R.T.A.

Growing up in East Cleveland, there weren’t any skaters in Ja’Ovvoni’s neighborhood. Most of the kids played basketball or video games. Eleven years ago, he received a demo copy of a Tony Hawk video game from his local Pizza Hut. After playing the game, he decided to give skateboarding a try and quickly fell in love with the sport.  He spent most of  his time skating solo around his neighborhood until hearing about the downtown skatepark  left behind by the Gravity Games organizers in 2003.

Jakprints Spotlight – Tom Matzdorf / SoMo Apparel

We love hearing what our customers are working on. Last week, we caught up with Jakprints customer and friend, Tom Matzdorf of SoMo Apparel Company.

If you’re one of the millions of Americans that resolved to make 2013 a healthier year and have already fallen off the fitness wagon, Tom should be your new best friend.  The enthusiasm this guy has for working out and fitness is beyond contagious.

What’s so awesome about SoMo Apparel (which stands for “So Motivated”) is while they have an apparel line they sell online, their primary goal is to build a community of support for people trying to start an exercise program. Tom says, SoMo Apparel is about a lifestyle, not just a brand.”

Tom, who is a graphic designer by day, created the SoMo Apparel line of t-shirts less than a year ago. These t-shirts, printed by Jakprints on American Apparel are worn by runners, triathletes and a few iron men who help spread their “Motivated apparel for the motivated person” message.

I asked Tom for a few tips on how to get off the couch and start a successful workout plan. He said, “always remember, it takes three weeks to get into a routine and just three days to fall off of one!”  His advice to everyone is, “get out, get moving and get a work out partner.” 

He adds, “If you’re really trying to stick with it, sign up for a local run or something with a deadline date to help you keep on track.”

Tom and the rest of the SoMo crew have big plans for 2013! In addition to expanding their apparel line, they are working on The Burpee Run, happening in August.  It’s a  5 mile run that incorporates 50 Burpees, (10 per mile) into the run.  If you’re like me and have never heard of a burpee before, it’s similar to a squat thrust.  It’s an intense 4 step, full body exercise used in strength training.

What’s really fantastic about this run is that each participating runner dedicates their personal run to a family member or friend they’ve lost.

SoMo Apparel plans to create a special t-shirt for the runners, with the names of all the honorees on the back.

If you’re looking to catch the fitness bug, visit their website,read their blog and “Like” them on Facebook for more tips and workout inspiration!  Thanks to Tom for taking the time to talk to us. We loved learning more about SoMo Apparel.

We’d love to hear what you’re working on. Share your projects with us!

Here’s a design that we think is smokin’ hot! Camel City Goods and Airtype Design made these premium vintage soft T-Shirts to celebrate the spirit of Winston-Salem, North Carolina and tell the story of their city.

Bonus history lesson for ya — In 1849, the town of Winston was established—taking its name from Salem native & Revolutionary War hero Joseph Winston. After several decades of cooperation, the two cities joined in 1913. Fast forward 100 years…this fantastic commemorative shirt is born to celebrate their matrimony! Pretty cool eh?
