Our Story

HIGO Apparel was established in 2019 by Noele Figueroa, who brings a rich background in art and design to the brand from studying fashion and illustration in NY. Previously, Noele served as the General Manager at a chain of gymnastics facilities with several locations on Long Island, NY, where she crossed paths with her future husband, John "Fig" Figueroa. John had owned his own successful gyms in Michigan for nine years before transitioning to a career as a college coach for women's gymnastics in 1999. It was during one of his recruiting visits to the gyms managed by Noele that their fateful connection was forged.


Inspired by her passion for art and design, Noele ventured into creating leotards and apparel, leveraging her expertise in the field. Subsequently, the couple relocated to St. Augustine, Florida, where HIGO is currently headquartered. While John focused on coaching, providing Noele with invaluable insights into the evolving preferences of young gymnasts, she assumed the helm of HIGO's operational activities.


The business has experienced exponential growth beyond their initial expectations over the years. In August 2023, John chose to retire from coaching, prompting the couple to diversify the business with various initiatives that had been in development. These new ventures are now taking shape and enriching the HIGO brand's offerings.
