With Cheer Factor YOU work with a fashion designer that creates your SubDi II apparel from the ground up. You won’t see other studios/teams wearing your apparel at competition and we never discontinue your warm-ups! Here are a few SubDi II warm-ups/costumes to show what is possible!


The exclusive “Razor Fit” by Cheer Factor the ultimate in sculpture fit warm-ups!

This tight fitting warm-up was developed by request by our fashion design team for Dance / Ballet studios, gymnastics and skating teams who wanted that no-cuff, no waistband look and one that fits like a glove. This unique pattern allows for sleeves to have the ever popular tapered arm with or without “thumb hole”. Normally teamed up with our Yoga style pants there is no missing this look. Photo shows our proportion fit flare leg pants that allow for a performance walk-on appearance. Our warm-ups are created in our moisture wicking 11 oz. or 14.5 oz Performance Poly, available in over 49 colors, unmatched in the industry.




Introducing the MicroMini Warm-up by Cheer Factor®

The long awaited custom Micro-Mini "crop" design, has been adopted by All-Star competitive cheer programs across the country. This unique, ultra snug fit can easily be layered for stunting or color contrast visual enhancement.

Created with our exclusive close knit contour knitted cuffs and waistband, this design allows for a myriad of contrasting or matching colors to make it your own. Coupled with our proportion fit pants in Capri, Straight (boot-cut), Flare, or Side Slit design, all with no-charge custom made-to-length pants, makes Cheer Factor the Warm-up of choice for the nations leading teams, studios, and clubs in America.

Hard to find Colors just another reason Cheer Factor leads the industry.
Swim Teams, Dive into Cheer Factor


Because we can dye fabric or accent trim to match your hard to find color, there are endless possibilities. You do not have to compromise by getting something stock from a catalog supplier that does not quite match your costume colors, your studio, or your logo colors.

With the largest color palette in the industry, one of our 49 colors, including hologram reflective fabric, can give you an array of design possibilities never before available. Plus our ability to dye as well as sublimate fabrics with zebra, cheetah, tiger patterns, army camo, and even your team logo in fabric, are all possibilities when working with Cheer Factor.

This Competition Warm-up features angle inserts and incorporates hard to find teal fabric with detailed metallic silver piping in a clever geometric design that is clean and timeless.

Whether you create your Swim warm-up for travel or on the deck, you have the ability to separate your Swim team like never before. Our high performance fabrics incorporate moisture management fibers. You can incorporate additional, strategically placed, air mesh fabric inserts for additional high velocity drainage if you wear your warm-up seconds after getting out of the pool. Because we never discontinue a design, you can be assured that you can re-order year after year. By working with our fashion designers, YOU can create a warm-up that sets your swim team apart both at practice and at high profile meets.

This Royal Blue Warm-up with Hot Pink accent stripes, includes full-length tear away pants. But this Pennsylvania based Swim Club also wanted matching shorts to round out the look resulting in a practical use of form and fashion.

Skating Warm-ups for Synchro Teams and Figure Skating Clubs Cheer Factor has set a new Standard
Color Guard Warm-ups...
now the Ultimate Costume from Cheer Factor!

Whether you are creating a form-fitting sleek black warm-up for testing or a One-of-a-kind design, Cheer Factor allows YOU to make a difference in your "On- Ice" presence or as traveling apparel. Working with our Fashion designers allows you to express, in a design, what separates your Skating team from all the others - not the case when ordering from a catalog.

And because fit and functionally are key with Skaters, we have five Jacket and four pant styles. This includes full or partial zippered legs, and full or partial tear-away legs, with no-charge custom inseams to fit your entire team.

For that extra dazzle on the ice, have your warm-ups created with your logo in Rhinestones, Rhinestuds, Metallic Twill, or Reflective Embroidery (another aspect that separates our in-house design capabilities).

Color and Pageantry are synonymous with Color Guard, Winter Guard and Flag Teams. Now the ability to add color in a meaningful way to your Field Costume or Traveling Apparel has given this market countless opportunities to create what no one has.

Because YOU start with a clean slate, "What you can dream, We can Create" ™ takes on a completely new meaning when working with Cheer Factor. This navy design incorporates broadband lime green end slot inserts in a free flow-wrap pattern that has a hidden shoulder zipper. The affect is startling! The shoulder zipper allows for a "pull-over" look, yet maintains the flexibility for quick changing when needed. A similar slot pant insert that curves at the pant leg shows you that fashion is another reason Cheer Factor is the Warm-up company of choice.

Two Jackets Now the Trend!

Designing Warm-ups with our Fashion Design team is exhilarating in itself, not to mention a Cheer Factor exclusive. However, teams across the country have discovered by designing a completely different jacket from the Warm-up design they have just created can give a visual split to allow for the Warm-ups to be used as a performance uniform/costume, competition walk-ons and even practice wear at a fraction of the cost of two warm-ups.

Cheer Factor can produce this unique concept to enhance your apparel footprint, and now we are providing the studio owners/coaches with the option of producing just the jacket. This is especially helpful to those teams whose requirements might be a form fitting , proportion fit or a loose fit jacket to accompany a Hip-Hop, Dance or Skating costume.

Introducing, the Cheer Factor® Ultra Snug fit Warm-Up

Snug FIt Snug FIt This performance Warm-up integrates a myriad of design motion insert techniques that enable a very tight fit, yet with a full 360 degree motion potential.  The result, an excellent slimming jacket visually and the fit almost becomes part of you.  UCDC one of South Carolina's nationally recognized Dance programs,  has put the new design to the test and with excellent results in both fit, performance and crowd approval.

Kinetic Expressions Makes A Move

Dance Uniforms That Make A Statement


©Copyright Cheer Factor Inc. January 2006, All Rights Reserved.
This leading Daytona Beach dance studio needed a fresh look after moving into new digs. A white Performance Poly 11oz. Warm-up was created with a 1 ¼" Accent stripe in metallic red and iridescent black strategically placed on the jacket cuffs and waistband and down the pant legs draws attention when this competition dance team performs across the country. A cadet collar, full zip jacket with pouch pockets and custom inseams are just a few of the 26 No-Charge options only from Cheer Factor.

Perfectly designed Warm-up, created as a Dance uniform for this DC based Studio. A spectacular use of double piping, across body/arm fabric inserts and a single leg spiral insert color block, has turned more than a few heads at many a competition. The floor presence has been overwhelming noted the Studio owner, we wanted sleek and sophisticated and we got that and more working with the Cheer Factor design team. See our testimonials page. Produced in Performance Poly 11 oz in jet black, with a cadet collar and side seam pockets with flare pant legs.

New York based Dance Company
Turns on the Style

All-Star Cheer Squad creates
standout clean design

Attention to detail, innovative customer focused designs and memorable floor presence is what separates Cheer Factor and this studio warm-up is no different.  This design is highlighted by the intricate strips of black material that were inserted throughout the white fabric based jacket.  The fold-over collar, cuffs and waistband utilized this same design principle only in reverse.  The white pants with its broad black inserts helped to make this NY Dance Co. Warm-up a true fashion statement.

This simplistic style Purple and Red Competition Warm-up, was achieved by using contrast color cuffs and waistband and a clean 2 inch leg insert, which proves that “less is more” in this 11 oz. Performance poly competition warm-up.   Gone are the multitudes of stripes that are common practice with catalog companies. Cheer Factor's design team continues to make the difference, nationally.
Indy Race Costume becomes reality for nationally ranked Reign 247
Lime Green Warm-up -
Turns heads for Placer Dance Team

Vancouver based Skyview – Reign 247’s design challenge, was to re-create an Indy styled dance costume for their nationally ranked dance team.  Collaboration with our design staff began by creating a 3” wide checkered flag accent trim for our proportion fit warm-up pattern.  We then utilized contrast black fabric on the cadet collar, cuffs and waistband.  For authenticity we crafted a matching dancer name patch for the chest and on the jacket back we used “Cruiser” typeface for the two color twill. These design elements all helped to tie together this 14.5 ounce performance poly “electric” Hot Pink athletic fit warm-up design.


Opposites attract, and the attention California based Placer Dance team has gained confirms the design they collaborated with our design team is on the mark.  Electric Lime Green inserts, coupled with metallic silver piping and 1 ½" Accent trim used in an opposite design pattern technique, makes for an individualized look which was the original design plan.  The use of a black twill outlined team appliqué and embroidery combination put the final touch on this traveling warm-up design.

Dancewear and Dance Costumes have come of Age, thanks to Cheer Factor's fashion designers!

Gone is the "so-so" dancewear design, Create an electrifying team vision in your apparel by working hands-on with a Cheer Factor designer through a myriad of fit, design and fabrication processes unique in the Warm-up business. Cheer Factor's proportion fit Male, Female and Youth (no unisex) patterns provide an unequaled professional performance fit, with the pattern designed to promote active movement and we utilize moisture management fabrics for a comfortable experience. Plus we offer 26 Exclusive Cheer Factor No-Charge options in over 40 colors that is unmatched by any company in the industry.

This Warm-up created in 11 oz performance polyester (four-way stretch fabric) is an outstanding example of what can be achieved with collaboration between customer and designer. Working together new patterns were developed, creating flowing color inserts with detailed piping in symmetry, plus perfect match insert extension from jacket to pants where precision pattern making and sewing techniques distinguish Cheer Factor Dance Costumes or Warm-ups in the marketplace.

Notice that this Dancewear Costume/Warm-up has been designed with a zipper that actually curves to match the flow of the jacket insert and piping. Then to promote depth to the design, white 1/2" inserts were added to the cuffs, waistband and collar for that unmistakable Cheer Factor floor presence.

Incorporating double piping, geometric fabric designs and color leg inserts this Performance Poly-White/Brown/Gold Warm-up was a show stopper at competition in Illinois.

Unequalled Floor Presence


Attention to detail is what makes Cheer Factor different.  This custom Warm-up with Green contrast stitching against Navy, Purple, and Green Performance Polyester includes triangle color inserts, helps to put this Michigan dance team in a class by itself.  Note the open cuff and waistband design allowed for a sleek polished look.

Youth Sizes

The best fitting youth size warm-ups with the same detail as our adult designs have All-Star cheer teams and dance studios across the country competing with confidence.

Youth Sizes 4 to 14

Athletic Look Still A Classic


Royal Blue 11 oz. moisture wicking Performance Polyester, is the basis for this strong traditional design that includes pouch pockets, 1 ½” three stripe trim, matching zipper and contrasting drawcords . Warm-up pants incorporate the exclusive Cheer Factor concealed snap (tear-away) open bottom pants.

From Iowa to California these teams wear Wooley well.

They both made their mark with Red Wooley hooded warm-ups, featuring accent trim and customization with twill / embroidery personalization.

Iowa Cardinals Comp cheer and Pasadena's Maranatha High School. Matching beanies and mittens compliment this practice warm-up.

Recording Artists… Sets the Stage

Stunt team Warm-up of choice

For recording artists the “Olympic Hopefuls”, stage presence means everything. The group wanted something memorable, yet not over the top, when performing. The solution, a Columbia Blue Warm-up with fold-over collar, full zipper in white, pouch pockets and detailed hot orange piping, created this sleek stage clothing. Under black light it’s also most hypnotic. Produced in breathable 11 oz. Performance Poly

Our Signature Wooley fabric helps this Co-ed Partner Team stay warm and look great prior to their performance. Our Comfort V™ neck line allows for a comfortable fit, while the contrasting red zippers and drawcords add distinction. Both Male and Female designs, so they fit great!
