A community who want to be better than we were yesterday
Join the fight against stagnation
The Development Society
Physical movement & mental health. That's what we deal in.
Our goal is simple; to help people create a better life for themselves and for those around them. Built on the ethos of creating a callused mind and a stoic approach to the difficult situations in life. The pursuit of excellence is never-ending. If you want to get better alongside likeminded people, you’re in the right place.
In short, DEVSOC is a community who want to be better than we were yesterday. We encourage wholesome physical education and mental preparation for the tough times ahead.

A little about what we believe in.
We don’t settle for second-best
DEVSOC only ships items that we are 100% happy with. Shortcuts are not an option. Fanatical attention to detail, unrivalled customer service, and a strong moral compass is what guides us. We take our time, but we do it properly – “Slow is smooth, smooth is fast”. We are humans, but if we make a mistake, it will be made right.
We're a community who want to be better than we were yesterday
I’ll say it again. We’re here for you. No matter where you are in life, we’ve got your six. It’s a long road; let’s ride it together. It will get better. There is light at the end of the tunnel. There is hope. You got this. Join our secret FB Group. Search for “The Development Society” on Facebook – make sure it’s the right group.
“We learn not in school, but in life” – Seneca
A mantra that we truly believe; if we are never challenged, how can we grow? Just because we have left school does not mean we have finished bettering ourselves. A core element of our work is the pursuit of virtuosity. We grow and develop by exposing ourselves to things we are not comfortable with. If you want to grow, this is the place for you.
Great organisation, doing good in the world. Fast dispatch, clear and regular communication and always happy to answer questions.
Excellent from start to finish with minimum fuss. Easy to order and the guys are always there should there be any problems.
Great merch, insightful content on the site, shirts have increased my gains.
Solid team, mindset and view. If you get fortunate enough to be apart of the limited batches, feel lucky. But don’t get it wrong, you’ve got a question, held to a higher standard, or need a reminder to be better, they’ll post a reminder, show you that high standard, and humble enough to give you an answer to help your growth. Tribe and Philosophy.
Like most people, 2020 has been a dumpster fire. I’ve struggled with my own mentality and mental health for a few years before this but not even halfway in, the camels back was broken. DEVSOC was a group I’d followed ages back but call it fate or a coincidence, when I decided I needed to turn things around and help myself become better, these guys had me covered. Their Instagram is full of the kind of positive motivation with betterment at its core that you almost never see other companies go for, at least for free.
