About American Fitness Couture
Yoga inspired activewear for the upscale woman at competitive, affordable prices for working out and for your daily activities. Our custom knit superior and thick—yet breathable—buttery soft, peached nylon/spandex fabric is made from a special nylon fiber called Tactel. (It's what they use in bullet proof vests--so it's incredibly strong, durable and supportive!) According to rigid testing, Tactel fiber is at least twice as soft and 20 percent lighter than most performance activewear fibers. It also dries eight times faster than cotton.
Our tactel nylon/spandex fabric is a certified anti-microbial to help fight the funk, and moisture to help minimize any unsightly sweat puddling around your lady parts. No more uncomfortable exposure!
Our design team consists of fitness-focused fashion designers, exercise physiologists who understand how the body moves in all planes of motion, and seasoned top-shelf pattern makers. Each carefully curated style in our collection is crafted to support and drape a woman to make her feel comfortable, move optimally, and of course, look beautiful.

Linda developed American Fitness Couture after seeing a laundry list of problems with many of today’s fitness lines that sag, bag, are too loosely woven (peek-a-boo!) and wear out too quickly. On a deeper spiritual level Linda believes that when it comes to health, it matters not only what you put into your body, but also what you put on your body. Thus, she determined that the market needed a high-quality, upscale, yet affordable line: American Fitness Couture.
