Established in Cypress Texas, Mind Over Matter Athlete was created to inspire people to challenge themselves through endurance sports. Built on the premise, "the body achieves what the mind believes" our founder set out to create not just a brand, but a community that represents the simply truism; "when you win the battle of the mind, anything is possible".
Having competed in swimming, running and cycling events much of his life, our founder Sean Moritz was familiar with the adversities many endurance athletes face during competition; and none more daunting than the enemy within ones own mind. To "Silence The Enemy Within" Sean would repeat the simple phrase "mind over matter" and in doing so, found a way to tap into that extra effort to get him to the finish line. In August 2016, while driving home from the USAT National Championships Sean realized strength does not come from physical capacity but rather, and indomitable mind, and thus Mind Over Matter Athlete was born.
Today, we are community of athletes that embody the mantra Mind Over Matter. We are those that refuse to be average and refuse to quit. We've come to understand there's no worthy goal, without any difficulty. Experience has taught us, the greater the obstacle, the more glory in overcoming it. Our mission is simple; to encourage and inspire all people to face adversity head on, for through adversity comes perseverance, and through perseverance comes strength. When you win the battle of the mind, Leave No Doubt, anything is possible.
