Phenom Elite Custom Gloves & Gear

Mission Statement:

To develop inspirational fitness and performance products, gear and tools because we believe motivating athletes every day can positively impact them in every area of life. Our vision is to inspire an athletic world.


Our Seven Core Values:

1. Innovation – Be creators
2. Quality – Perform to the best of your abilities
3. Commitment – Commit to the process
4. Perseverance – Learn to overcome obstacles and all doubts
5. Respect – Respect the journey
6. Leadership – Be someone or something you’d want to follow
7. Self-Awareness – Know who you are; strengths and weaknesses

At Phenom Elite we seek to provide value through our hard work and dedication to the high quality products our company produces. We feel that this hard work and dedication directly correlates to the message wew ant to send to our athletes and people who use our products. To be a 'Phenom Athlete' you have to be gritty, tough, and willing to define the moment regardless of circumstance. Our brand's goal is to aid in bringing to light the stories that are bigger than sports, eliminating the entitled, selfish and lazy minded athlete that is ever so common today. Define the moment. No matter what.

Phenom Elite was originally founded by Nathan Dorton, who, as a former college football player at Appalachian State, could not find the quality of product he wanted so he, with $65, went out and had his own glove manufactured. After 6 months, Nathan brought on Josh Ortegon, a sports performance coach and friend, into the business to help take the product to market and build a culture around a quality product with the belief that our mission is bigger than sports.
