In 2016, Amie Dodd founded Énergie Goods with the ideal that people today are living with the mindset of dressing for work, fitness and play. Her pop up shops, are all around Northern Virginia and provide apparel to people who are looking to go from their day to day tasks to whatever their fitness commitments of the day might be.
Ami Dodd decided to create a brand that provides athleisure clothing and products that are made by small companies and are of the highest quality. Énergie Goods philosophy is that they are a brand that unites people and communities through authentic connections and only carries products from small companies of high quality and standards. Companies that understand your needs and how transformative it is to feel great in your own skin. These products were hand selected to support and inspire you.”
Inside Ami’s pop up shop at the Reston Station Metro, a wide range of clothing for women, men, and children are available to support the active lifestyle shared by so many who live, work and play in Northern Virginia. Currently, Énergie Goods is available online and at six pop up shops around Northern Virginia: Urban Pop at Reston Station, BE, Wishing Tree at One Loudoun, BeFit NOVA, Wheel House Mind Body Spirit, and Play Well Nook.
Ami’s passion for health and fitness as well as her high energy levels inspired her to create a brand that worked well with her active lifestyle as well as support a community and culture that wants to be able to move. She says, “I love that when I wear Energie products, I am free to go to work, run errands, and then get my workout in whenever I am able to because I am already in athletic clothing.”
The path that lead Ami to Énergie Goods was an unexpected one. She was attending medical school and teaching yoga when her father passed away due to health related problems. For Ami, it was an eye opener and she began to examine the direction she wanted her own life to go in. She became more and more active with teaching yoga and was a customer of the many women owned brands that Énergie Goods now represents. Her role as a business owner though came naturally to her; both of her parents had owned and operated their own businesses so entrepreneurship is a lifestyle that she was familiar with. Eventually yoga lead Ami to becoming a fitness clothing expert and for Ami that meant shopping ethically.
Ami continues to add products to the Énergie Goods brand as well as pop up shop locations. “I love knowing that I am helping support other small business owners by sharing their products with my customers.”
