What is a "Drop?"

Every 3 weeks we release a few new items for sale in our online store at 8:00pm on a Friday night.  These items, like the one pictured above, will be available in limited quantities only.  Once they sell out they are gone for good.  "Drop" is the term we use for putting new items for sale on our website.  

Most of our items sell out VERY quickly, as a result the best chance for you to get one is to purchase them online quickly, as close to the 8:00pm Drop time as possible.

How do you purchase FTF item?

All of our sales are done through our online store located at this link, or you can click the "Online Store" tab above. 


When you get to the checkout screen you will need to select your shipping option... 

Shipping Option #1 is "In-Store Pick Up."  With this option you will need to pick up your order from 103 N. Jersey St. (Ageless Fitness) in Gillespie, IL.  There is no shipping charge for In-Store Pick Up orders.

Shipping Option #2 is "Standard Shipping."  We use USPS to ship.  Shipped orders usually take 3-7 business days to arrive at your door.  Standard shipping rates apply for this option. 


We are unable to do returns or exchanges on the "Drop" items because of the limited quantities available.  For example, if you purchase a medium and then want to exchange it for a small, we most likely will have sold out of all the smalls we had available.  

Please let us know any questions you may have so you can be ready to go before the Drop.

Thanks so much for supporting Fight the Fight!

Lesson #1 I Learned from High School Basketball

11 years ago I played my last high school basketball game.  It was the closing of one chapter in my life and the beginning of another.  To that point, getting better at basketball was the only goal and focus I had ever had.  

After the final buzzer sounded I thought that was the end.  I thought that I would be leaving the game behind forever.

I was wrong.  The lessons I learned from playing high school basketball will stick with me and help me for the rest of my life.  Over the next few weeks I am going to share 5 of these lessons with you guys.  Here is the first one:

Lesson #1 I Learned from High School Basketball: 

People only see the tip of the iceberg of the hard work you put in.

For every 1 game played in front of a packed gym there were 100 nights of practicing my shooting by myself in my driveway, sacrificing a social life, video games, just "hanging out" with friends, dating girls, etc...  On those nights if you took a drive around town (Gillespie, IL) you would have seen many of my teammates doing the same thing.

In the winter, I can remember chipping ice off my driveway with a shovel just so I could have a small space to practice dribbling and shooting.  Every summer while most kids were just "chillin" we would have one or more games, or practice every day of the week.  

Sometimes we would get tired and burned out, but our coaches and parents understood that if we wanted to be successful this was the level of dedication that was necessary.  

If you want to get to the top of the mountain and be successful you have to do a mountain's worth of work.  And once you do get to the top of the mountain you don't EVER want to fall back down because of the way it feels when you are there.  

I was there for a brief period in my life, and I will carry that feeling and experience with me forever.  We are climbing the mountain again with FTF right now!

Fashion Friday: Baseball Tees

Baseball tees are perfect for the transition from Winter to Spring.  I like wearing them with jeans, and my sleeves rolled up to the elbows.  

Slim-fit, colored pants are in style for both men and women.  Guys are rocking a variety of dark denims and camos, while the ladies are going for bright colors.  Neutral colored 3/4 sleeve tees go great with both.
