CREATING BETTER SELF-DEFENSE OPTIONS
I am Jodi Fisher, founder of Go Guarded. The inspiration for Go Guarded came a few years ago during a solo run in a local park when I inadvertently took a wrong turn and ended up a tad concerned for my personal safety. The sun was setting and I found myself in an unfamiliar and secluded part of the park. While I picked up the pace and found my way to a more populated area, the concern for my personal safety while running stuck with me.
This experience led me on an unfruitful search for safety products for runners. I was actually shocked by the lack of convenient, comfortable, effective options that made sense for runners. Although I had no product development experience at the time, I had (and continue to have) a long background in criminal justice and a good amount of personal safety knowledge. A lot of stressful days and sleepless nights later, Go Guarded was born.
I am proud of what Go Guarded has become, and I am proud to be part of a movement where women stand up for themselves. I would love nothing more than to be part of the solution that stops the all too frequent attacks on female runners.
On a personal note, I believe runners come in all shapes, sizes, and paces, and will be the first one to cheer each one of you over the finish line. I love women who cheer on and support other women. It can get rough out there so we need to show up for each other! I also believe love is love and ALL people deserve to pursue their own happiness regardless of gender, identity, sexuality, religion, race, ethnicity, county of origin, etc.
Go Guarded is a women's self defense company that believes in the power of women. We are a company that:
