Founder's Story

Founded by fitness enthusiast, former lawyer, and mother of two, Leyla Cooper.

"Exercise has always been an important part of my life, helping me to maintain my physical and mental health throughout the years. Being able to support other women by way of the Pretty Athletic products, brand and community is something I am incredibly proud to do every day."

Our philosophy

Exercise is amazing. It boosts your mood and wellbeing, promotes better sleep, helps keep weight under control, and boosts blood flow and oxygen to the skin.

Yet whilst working up a sweat regularly is super amazing for your skin, sweating, regular showering, exposure to chlorine, and exercising outside in the elements (to name just a few) can cause or exaccerbate common skincare problems such as clogged pores, redness, irritation, dehydration and inflammation.

Our British-made skincare works hard to protect, support, and nourish your skin, helping you to achieve your best.

Pretty Athletic has been featured in a number of magazines including Vogue, Elle, Women's Health, Women's Running, Women's Fitness, The Metro, The Daily Mail, The Independent, The Telegraph, Harper's Bazaar, Forbes and more.
