MILE ACTIVE: Bridging the Gap Between Quality and Affordability in Women’s Activewear

Wearing suitableand truly comfortable apparel while working out is something that everyone expects to do. The hurdle that everyone stumbles at is getting the right apparel.

MILE ACTIVE – a women-centric activewear brand by Harshita Motaparthi, a law school graduate, is strongly positioning itself to be at the head of the race to be the chosen solution to this issue. With Harshita herself being a passionate fitness enthusiast, the brand is an answer to the problems she personally experienced, while looking to buy apparel for her workout.

The entrepreneur in Harshita came alive from her realization that quality activewear at an affordable price point was not readily available in India, and accessing international brands came with a hefty price tag. Motivated to make premium activewear accessible in India, especially with the growing health consciousness post-COVID, Harshita embarked on the journey to create MILE ACTIVE. Fuelled by her passion for both the brand and the challenges women encounter with activewear, Harshita sought to bridge the gap in the market.

Rather than positioning itself as a typical commercial entity, MILE ACTIVE strives to be more than just a brand. Harshita envisions it as an ambassador of overall health and wellness, an ally for women pursuing an active lifestyle.

Harshita shared, “Our mission is to craft an activewear brand centred around community, uniquely designed to embrace the expectations and the essence of every Indian woman”
