Anybody who follows Brian Mazza on Instagram knows the guy spends a lot of time working out (with the results to show for it) so it’s not a shocker to see the entrepreneur combining his love of fashion and fitness with a new project. Today on Layer8 he’s exclusively launching Mazza Sport, his very own athletic apparel line, which is one way of looking as good as him without actually having to go to the gym! He fills us in on his new venture.
Why did you decide to start a brand?
Mazza Sport is an athletic apparel brand that represents more than fitness. Mazza Sport is a brand for the everyday person trying to be the best possible version of themselves. I wanted to focus on a really great product at an affordable price that can tie in a very important cause, Beyond Type 1, since my father has diabetes. (Layer 8 will donate $1 for every social media post that Beyond Type 1 and Layer 8 is featured in, showing a workout using social hashtag #Activ8Mazza.) We need to give back more as humans! When I told my dad that I was partnering with Layer8 & Beyond Type 1, he was very appreciative. My father has been the most influential person in my life for many different reasons, and working closely with him on this project has been a dream come true.
