Willpower ist für Läufer, die ihren eigenen Weg gehen
Our style is simple and aesthetic, just like the clothing you wear every day. If crazy colors and over-the-top functionality do not match your personal taste, Willpower running clothing is for you. Naturally our products are of high quality, race-, training- and adventure-approved and crafted with big love for simplicity and minor, but stunning details. It's more than just textiles and gear. Willpower is a strong brand for runners with attitude. Just like you.
Willpower was founded by Chris Z. in 2015. We started this independent running clothing brand to stand out against the mainstream sports industry. Willpower is about reducing running to it’s very core, the sheer bliss of movement. Far-off from high tech clothing and chronic over-gearing we narrow it down to pumping lungs, beating hearts, hammering strides and free spirits.
Despite being the first shirt design we created, "Running With Attitude" pretty much defines what Willpower is all about. We focus on the WHY rather than the WHAT or the HOW. We truly believe that there is a deeper meaning to this sport, far beyond a certain pace, altitude gain, distance or race result. "Running With Attitude" also means to feel, think and do things differently. Yes, running is a mass sport. However this does not mean you have to float with the current. Willpower is about proudly having both feet on the ground, expressing your true personality and going your very own way, no matter what others say.
What we Do
Willpower ist die Marke für Läufer, die sich von der bunten Masse abheben und ihren eigenen Weg gehen. Stil und Haltung gehen bei uns Hand in Hand. Wir sind Individualisten und Läufer mit ganzem Herzen.
Yes, without any doubt. We truly believe that the composition of a textile must not decide over its usage. Some of our products are made from polyester, others are made from cotton and other again are made from a blend of various materials. We strongly promote the elminiation of the separation line between sports and lifestyle. Simply wear what you feel like for whatever occasion. And by the way: Sweating is not something you have to hide. It simply shows that you have worked hard. Be proud of it.
Our "Athleisure Shirts" are made from a textile blend of cotton and polyester. They combine the best of two worlds, because they are comfortable and soft like a casual cotton shirt, but als have a great breathability and dry quickly like a sports textile. You can literally wear them all the time.
Our "Racing Shirts" are made from 100% polyester, ultra leightweight, highly breathable and quickly drying. We created these shirts for your hardest workouts and A-races.
Most of our products are unisex. This means that they have a cut that fits both, men and women, very well. Usually women wear sizes small (S) or x-small (XS) of our unisex prodcuts. However, some of our stuff is also available in a special Womens cut, usually marked as "Women" in the product title and description.
Yes, most of them are. We believe that runners should resonate with the environment in a positive way and try to make Willpower and everything around it as "green" and fair as possible. We also added info icons to all our product descriptions for maximum transparency.

No. Well at least not, if we don't know you personally, have raced, eaten and laughed together. We do not have specified requirements, registration forms or membership cards. This is not a sports club or a racing team. The Willpower Athletes are a circle of like-minded friends with a common attitude towards running. If you can relate to this, then let's start by saying "hi" if you meet one of us. In the meantime check out the "TOGETHER" documentary movie on YouTube, which pretty much sums up what the Willpower Athletes are all about.
Der Willpower Circle ist der Ort an dem sich Läufer treffen, die nirgends richtig rein passen. Wir denken, fühlen und laufen anders als die Breite Masse. Wir sprechen unsere eigene Sprache und gehen unseren eigenen Weg. Dieser Ort ist eine Zusammenkunft von Gleichgesinnten. Trete der Facebook Gruppe und dem Strava Clubbei.
Just like you we are runners and there's no topic we love to speak about more. The "Too Far Gone" blog is about our experiences in training, racing or just about the overall joy and excitement this sport brings along. It also features some kick ass interviews with other running people and the legendary "Running Rants" by Das Z.
Basically all visuals you see on this website and our social media channels have been shot by the following amazing people (in no particular order): Björn Lexius, Nils Laengner, Björn Fehl, Phil Pham, Martin Liebl, Stephan Wieser, Chris Drüke, Michi Berger and our Willpower Athletes themselves. We gladly forward your letters of appreciation.
No. Willpower products are only sold through www.willpower-running.com and a handful of selected other onlinestores. We might expand this in the future, but as for right now, you are just in the right place to do you shopping.
Berechtigte Frage. Willpower ist in der Tat ein deutsches Label. Wir sind allerdings seit Tag 1 eng vernetzt mit Läufern und Partnern aus der ganzen Welt. Auch unsere Kunden kommen von überall her. Deshalb haben wir uns dazu entschlossen, Englisch als Hauptsprache im Onlinestore zu führen. Solltet ihr irgendwo sprachliche Barrieren sehen oder etwas nicht verstehen, dann schreibt uns einfach (auf deutsch).
