Meet The TSM Swimwear Designer and the TSM Ambassadors

Cody here and I am the “man behind the curtain” so to speak, lol. Since starting The Speed-oh Movement / TSM Swimwear in the fall of 2019 I have had the pleasure of working with some of the best brands in the industry, made many genuine friendships and have grown and learned so much about myself and our collective experience as humans that it boggles my mind. I always say, The Speed-oh Movement is about so much MORE than just the little spandex suits we all know and love.

The goal is to create a safe space for expression, to celebrate our individual uniqueness and to support each other regardless of any factors that so commonly separate us. All bodies are speed-oh bodies and all people (well, not evil or mean people, but almost all people lol) deserve to be treated with respect and integrity. I am on a mission to help as many people as possible (including myself) to shed the toxic norms of the world and let themselves be free to "just be." I believe that it is genuinely one of the “keys to happiness.”

I have loved swimwear and underwear since my early adolescence and can even remember being a teenager in the 90s and finding patterns online that I printed off to make my own. I didn’t know how to sew and yet I wanted to design and make them so bad. It wasn’t until my late 30s that I actually taught myself how to sew and make things. As a designer the line I have created is near and dear to my heart and I hope you love the pieces as much as I do. TSM Swimwear is an extension of me and is genuinely a dream come true!

I live in the Kansas City area with my wife of over 20 years, Abby, and our two dogs Vivienne Leigh Westwood Von Puppenstein and Talia Mackenzie. I work in the insurance industry as my “day job” and design, sew and create in my “spare time.” I am often asked what my wife thinks of speed-ohs and the best way to sum that up is to say, she prefers me in something even cheekier so speed-ohs are A-OK as well 😉. I love to go running, traveling to new places, wine and cocktails, cooking, being with friends, art, and if all that isn’t enough I find plenty of time to binge watch “everything” on TV. My favorite pastime is just being at home with Abby (and the pups) in our “bubble” which is our den/my studio where we can hang out and enjoy each other.

Thank you for joining me on this adventure. Please feel free to reach out (Insta DM is easiest for me) as I love meeting and talking with other speed-oh lovers and people that are interested in spreading kindness the world over. Check out the NEW TSM Swimwear designs, the swap shop and the rest of the site. Please follow The Speed-oh Movement’s various social media pages to connect with other people and keep this community going! I am so thankful for everything that I have been able to experience and am looking forward to many, many years to come!

With sincere gratitude, keep body positive and speed-oh on!

"My name is Jason and I’m 42 years young. I live in Freeport New York, but I was born and raised in Durham North Carolina. I currently work in human resources where I love making a difference for the every day employee.
I’ve been married to my husband Steven for nine years and we currently have six fur babies (2 dogs and 4 cats)

When I’m not working, I love traveling and spending time with friends. I consider any place that has a beach a vacation no matter the occasion. I’ve always loved wearing a swimsuit because it’s  a symbol of vacation and fun times (if you add a martini 🍸) and definitely a required item. Like my swimsuit my body has changed over the years and I’ve enjoyed finding new ways to love the skin I’m in. I’ve always enjoyed wearing a speedo from the more boxy  to the barely there. For me, it was an opportunity to show my personality, embrace body positively and still feel cute."

Hey, I’m Keith! I have been super into men's underwear, swimwear and sportswear for as long as I can remember. Since I got my first job out of high school, I have had a blast evolving and curating my collection throughout the years. As a former interior designer I learned to love a vast variety of textile types and patterns which I feel I have brought to my underwear collection just over 1,000 pairs strong. I love all kinds of underwear from slinky thongs, to tighty whiteys and everything in between. I currently live in Boise, ID with my amazing husband and my pup, Hank. I work in the fitness Industry as a group fitness coach, personal trainer, and I manage a growing fitness start-up company. When I’m not at work or hanging in my undies you can find me surrounded by flowers in the garden, working on some sort of arts and crafts project, or exploring the outdoors with my friends. I’m excited to be a part of TSM and to make lots of new friends! Say hi anytime!

I was born and raised in El Salvador, but, South Florida has been home for most of my life at this point. I Have always had a love for swim briefs and have been fortunate not to care what others may or may not think about it. At the very least, posting my pics in speed-ohs is giving people things to say about me: good, bad or indifferent! LOL. Wearing them makes me feel sexy and that’s all that matters.

I’m Chris. Born in Virginia but moved to Colorado about 10 years ago and never looked back. I can usually be found in a pair of meggings with my two pups sipping on a glass of wine or an espresso martini. I enjoy hiking, camping, traveling and spending time with my friends. I began a journey of body positivity about 3 years ago which started when I put on my first pair of meggings. It has only grown since finding TSM! I never thought I had the “right body” for a speedo but now you won’t catch me in anything else. I started The Megging Movement at the end of 2023 to normalize men wearing leggings and build body positivity for all! Joining TSM is the best crossover bringing two of my favorite things together!

Eddy in "Curves" Swim Brief by TSM Swimwear

"I'm Eddy (Edgar), born and raised in SoCal, I am the TSM Tech and IT/Digital Art Guru. I remember my first speed-oh I ever had was when I was 4. It was checkered patterned black/white with hot-pink on the back and had a Snoopy on it.

They were my favorite speed-oh till I outgrew them. Since then I didn't wear any speed-ohs anymore because I was very self-conscious (still am at times) of my body of what people would think of me because I use to be bigger and I didn't want to get made fun of or be teased about it being "gay" (BS male masculinity). So I didn't wear any speed-ohs for years and would only wear a shirt and shorts. It wasn't till my early 20s and I was in college that I began to love myself and started doing things that I wanted to do and not care what everyone else thinks. At times I still struggle with wearing a speed-oh (body image, straight & queer community), but I definitely feel much more comfortable now learning to love myself more and seeing more body positivity, diversity and support in the world.
