ABOUT

My name is Melissa Wu and I’m the creator of Havok. I’m a 3 time Olympian and Olympic Silver Medallist in the sport of Diving.

I have been on the Australian Diving Team since I was 13 years old, so I’ve worn a lot of activewear. I know there is nothing worse than training in uncomfortable or restrictive gear. To get the most out of your training sessions you need your activewear to give you the freedom of movement your sport demands. But you also want to look good, so it's important to me to create pieces that give you both function and fashion.

When creating Havok products, I use premium quality fabrics that are super soft and comfortable and team them with pretty prints and soft summery colours. The shorts are all squat proof and the collection is designed so that all the pieces mix and match. 

 

UNITED BY STRENGTH

Strength develops through challenge and adversity. Challenge and adversity come in many forms, for someone it could be the loss of a loved one, while for someone else it could be the challenge of learning a muscle up.
  
Life will bring us all Havok at some time, in those times we are UNITED. BY. STRENGTH
  
Havok is built on strong family and community values and our mission is to embrace strength in all forms.
   

Strength of Mind | Strength of Body | Strength of Character

        
       

OUR STORY

In 2014 my younger sister Kirsten took her own life as a result of depression. She was just 21. My family was turned upside down and we didn’t think we could go on without her. It’s still a daily struggle, but we decided to live our lives big and do all the things Kirsten wouldn’t get to do.

 
It has always been my dream to have an activewear label, so I finally took the plunge and spent the last year creating Havok Athletic. This label represents my dreams, and the struggles I’ve had to overcome to make them come true. But more than that, it celebrates every one of you who has fought to overcome a challenge in your life.
 
We all face different challenges, both in the gym and in our personal lives. These challenges build our strength.
 
Havok represents the strength gained through adversity. Don’t let life wreak Havok on you, #gohavok on your struggles and goals and live the life you want.
 
UNITED. BY. STRENGTH
