,

Sweepstakes ends: September 5, 2012

 
What’s your mantra? Whether it’s an inspirational quote, advice from a coach or mentor, or something your parents instilled in you… they are the words you live by. The words that propel you forward to accomplish what you set your mind to. It’s sometimes that one quote that speaks to you at the exact moment you need it.

At Sport Chalet, we are passionate about inspiring others to get out to do the things they love and to dominate their sport, whether it’s climbing a mountain peak, a winning touchdown or finishing a 5k. Our mantra?

”Take it to the limit!”
