Serious Competition, Serious Fun: The Title Nine Olympics.

At Title Nine we believe that sports and fitness can be fun and transformational. It says so right on our walls. Our CFO leads Tabata classes in the company gym. Lunchtime yoga is taught by a customer service rep. The distribution center hosts parking lot boot camp classes, and our stores hold their meetings while hiking or navigatiWe believeng ropes courses.

We believe sweating together, laughing together, and encouraging each other makes us better coworkers, and in turn, a better company for all of our customers.

Cheering TeamWhich is why, once a year since 2002, we shut down headquarters, suspend shipping, send customer service phones to voice mail, and fly in all 23 store managers from across the country. We come together for a day of teamwork, athletics, and a lot of silliness at the Title Nine Olympics.

Serious Competition

The 2015 games were held at a cavernous local gym. We began our morning by dividing up into eight teams with names such as Dink & Sparkle, Bras n’ Bros, and Back in Black. Team captains were chosen, cheers composed, and hilarious dances choreographed. Team loyalty was strong, and the competition was serious (injuries included), but ultimately we knew we were all playing on one big team.

Morning games included Off the Wall Ball (a game made up by our founder, Missy), Office Chair Foosball, Human Hungry Hungry Hippo, and Cup Stacking. The games were a mix of physical exertion, mental strategy, and just plain ridiculousness – something for everyone.

T9 Behind the Scenes: Winter ’15

Winter Behind the Scenes

What do you do when you have to shoot your winter catalog in summer? You get creative! Lucky for Title Nine, we have some of the most creative people around. Our team got to work searching for summer snow, and where there wasn’t snow, well, we had a few tricks up our sleeve.

T9 Behind the Scenes: Fall ’15

Our team is finally back at T9HQ after traveling to shoot our Fall 2015 catalog. If you’re a follower of Title Nine’s Instagram account, our “guess where we are?” photo may have given it away. While the guesses were great, we weren’t in Alaska, Colorado or Canada. We returned to, as one commenter so aptly put it, “heaven on Earth,” better known as Bend, Oregon.

Of course, just like any other Title Nine photo shoot, every day on location was an adventure unto itself.

T9 Behind the Scenes: Summer ’15

They came, they took photos, wrangled chickens, visited hidden swimming holes and ate pumpkin pie for lunch: just another successful Summer shoot for Title Nine.

Joss, Louise and a well-placed slackline.

We take a lot of pride in having ordinary women who are capable of extraordinary things gracing our pages and website. They’re real – and so are our images. Surfing, juggling soccer balls on the beach, making fruit salad with machetes, climbing palm trees barefoot: if you see a picture of it, yes, our model athletes really did it!

Caitlin: strong. That's one sharp machete.

Mahea monkeys around.

Mahea is a true kama’aina who grew up climbing palm trees.
