Setting The Scene
Sweaty Betty delivers the perfect fusion of fitness, functionality and fashion what we like to call beautiful technical. We design product that goes beyond the gym or studio, an authentic London-cool outlook on style, and a culture that recognises it’s all good fun we exercise to look and feel good (not necessarily to find enlightenment), and know that the best workouts are shared with good friends and are followed by a glass of wine or cake (or both).
Founded by our Creative Director, Tamara Hill-Norton, in 1998 in London’s Notting Hill, Sweaty Betty now has over 44 stores in the UK and 8 (and counting) in the US. We are poised for explosive growth in the US over the next five years and there has never been a more exciting time to join our team.
