Welcome to Anook Athletics!

Anook derives from the French name “Anouk,” meaning grace. As mothers, women are constantly juggling the weight of the world on their shoulders all while expected to have a smile on their face the entire time. At Anook Athletics, we believe mamas are the true definition of grace under fire. In our modern baby-centered world, Anook Athletics was founded to offer women the mother-based support that is lacking in our communities. We are here to provide women innovative clothing that supports their bodies from their first prenatal yoga class to running after a thriving child. We want all women to feel supported in their bodies physically, mentally, and spiritually. We take the guessing game out of what to wear so that mamas can do what they do best, empowering their little ones to create a better world. We are proud to say our garments are designed in the US and made in Canada by women who are the best in their respective fields.

Allie Lindenmuth

CEO and Founder: Allie is a yoga teacher who has worked with hundreds of women over the years. Coming from a nonprofit background, Allie was always on the lookout of how to better serve the mothers of her community. When she became a mom herself in 2016, Allie noticed there was a huge gap in the athletic apparel market. Because of the lack of high-quality maternity and postpartum workout gear, pregnant and nursing moms, herself included, were having to make their non-maternity workout clothes work. Blending her passion to serve women and her love for all things yoga, Allie started Anook Athletics. Allie believes that motherhood is one of the biggest transitions in a female’s life and support through this time is crucial. Allie lives in Austin, TX with her husband, two kids and their golden retriever.

Chris Wong

Director of Operations: Chris has a background in textiles and operations and has worked for some of the world’s largest brands. After her years at Nordstrom and Nike, Chris developed a love for working and surrounding herself with color and textiles as well as understanding the process behind the making of wovens and knits. Her eye is always drawn to color and pattern, whether it’s in her garden or in working with the team to choose Anook’s color palette. In her spare time she loves redesigning her backyard landscape, scheming about what room to ask her husband to paint, and weekly beach walks with girlfriends. Chris lives in Santa Barbara with her husband and two kids.
