"Nestled atop a gym in Ballston Spa, sewing machines and sergers are moving constantly.
Synthetic fabrics are continually cut and the pieces pinned to patterns and will eventually be sewn into yoga pants and other athletic wear.
The pieces could easily be worn by anyone at the gym below, but from the outside, an onlooker would never know that it’s home to Greater Than Sports Clothing.
The company -- often referred to as GTS Clothing -- has been operating out of their Ballston Spa warehouse for the past few months. Four years prior, when the company started, they worked out of Saratoga Springs.
But what that work looks like has changed dramatically, according to founder Mike Borisenok.
He’s an Albany native who had always wanted to start his own athletic wear or lifestyle brand that could provide people with athletic gear that was fashionable. But it wasn’t until his freshman year at the University of New Hampshire that the idea for Greater Than Sports struck."
