Fitness Ad Examples From Ten Thousand Inc

First, testimonial with five bullet points:

“Running, lifting, HIIT — I wear them for E.V.E.R.Y.T.H.I.N.G.” – Geoffry T.

✔️ Permanent anti-odor treatment.

✔️ Cling-free & ultra-wicking shell.

✔️ Stretch for max range of motion.

✔️ Perfect pockets.

✔️ Anti-chafe liner.


They’re testing this with a similar version, longer quote, less bullets:

“By far the most comfortable, no nonsense pair of shorts I own for workouts, bike rides, and general outside activities, from the water to the hiking trails.” – Auden S.

✔️ Bombproof Durability.

✔️ Abrasion-Resistant Fabric.

✔️ No stretchy office clothing.


“Our promise to you is simple: The best workout gear you’ll find, made for men who prioritize function over everything.”
