Aion is pronounced like "ion." Inspired by the concepts of eternity and longevity, we aim to give you more vitality and help you make the most of your time.

How do I join in on the Aion mindset?

The Aion mindset is for everyone. Aion was born from the experience of serial entrepreneur and bestselling motivational author Brent Yates, representing his journey to rebuild his mind, body, and spirit. In his bestselling book “The Gravity Of UP,” Yates faced a rock-bottom moment, battling declining health and deep despair. He developed Aion as a tool to help transform his own life and elevate his own health and wellness. If you’re someone who’s committed to creating lasting change in your life, and redefining what’s possible for yourself, then you’re already living out the Aion mindset. If you're looking for support on your transformational journey, that's exactly why we created the Aion Mind & Body Journal.

Product

Do Aion products run true to size?

Most Aion products are true to size. However, you should refer to our size guide to ensure a perfect fit.

How do I store my Workout Vest?

The Workout Vest is best stored by laying it on a flat surface. This ensures an optimal fit and maintains both the built-in resistance and compression fabrics.

How do I know which vest to choose? When should I wear each vest?

The Workout Vest is intended to be worn during athletic activity. That includes strength training, plyometrics, stretching, running, walking, hiking, active recovery and other similar activities. The Boardroom Vest is meant to be worn during daily life when you’re not specifically exercising—when you’re at work, at home, running errands or commuting.

What materials are used in the Workout Vest?

The Workout Vest is made from high-grade neoprene fabric and stainless steel weights. Neoprene is extremely durable and helps create the compression fit of the vest, while the steel weights are designed to be perfectly centered on your chest and back to improve posture and provide a balanced load so you can perform at your best. 

What materials are used in the Boardroom Vest?

The Boardroom Vest is made from faux suede with a quilted texture and refined stitching, which creates a durable and comfortable fit. The placement of the weights is specifically designed to pull your shoulders back, open up your frame, and encourage good posture.

How heavy are the resistance vests?

The Women's Workout and Split Vest weigh between 4.78 and 5 lbs depending on size. The Men’s Workout Vest weighs 7 to 12.52 lbs depending on size. The Men’s Boardroom Vest weighs 5.5 lbs across all sizes.

Is the Workout Vest waterproof?

No. While normal sweating is okay, the Workout Vest should never be immersed in water. Clean the vest with spot treatments only.

Can the Boardroom Vest be worn while exercising?

The Boardroom Vest is not intended for exercising. It should be worn outside the gym as you’re going about your daily life.

What are the benefits of resistance vests or clothing?

Studies have shown that resistance clothing has numerous health benefits.

That includes:

  • Enhanced physical well-being
  • Optimized athletic performance
  • Improved muscle development
  • Higher caloric expenditure
  • Increased bone density
  • Improvements in posture, stability and mind-body connection

By combining the proven science behind resistance clothing with a compression fit and our proprietary Dynamic Resistance™ technology, we’ve created vests that are above and beyond anything that’s been offered before.

What’s my role in giving back?

When purchasing an Aion vest, you’ll select a nonprofit during the checkout process that will receive a donation from us. You can also share the Aion story with friends and family and we’ll donate for each of their vest purchases, too.

Why does Aion believe in making an impact?

As detailed in his book “The Gravity of UP,” our founder Brent Yates was able to transform his life through the help of his family and community. Since the beginning, the Aion brand has been committed to serving the people around us and lifting them up.
