There are so many good things to share this week! We have a fitness industry supplier that hit record growth in 2020, another supplier that recently acquired its ninth company, a gym owner that’s sending positive messages out of all the bad things the pandemic has caused, and so much more. Let’s get right into it.
FITBENCH Doubles Business Amidst Pandemic
After just five years in operation, IHRSA partner, FITBENCH, experienced record growth in 2020, with 50% of revenue coming from international sales. Founder Tyler Danen said, “Throughout COVID, we worked with new studio owners who took advantage of negotiated lease rates, and our biggest growth was from home exercisers.” FITBENCH is a versatile tool that offers four commercial units that include dumbbells, kettlebells, a slam ball, and FITBANDS. These products are available in 40 states and 25 countries worldwide through distributors, big-box retailers, studios, health clubs, vertical markets, homes, and even the U.S military.
