Innovation and Steel Resolve: AD4M Fitness
AD4M Fitness is a success story like few others, and one of the world’s fastest growing gym equipment companies, with sales of over $1 million per month in… its first year.
Building barbells and dumbbells, among many other products for gyms, AD4M Fitness has developed a unique manufacturing process for their gym equipment. The company’s founders, Vincent and Monika, met with an auto-parts manufacturer overseas. Vincent and Monika negotiated with this manufacturer to use their machinery and raw equipment to produce high quality barbells and dumbbells. Vincent and Monika turned this into a profitable relationship, developed a distribution network, and the rest is history.
Based in Casper, Wyoming and operating with a distribution center in San Jose, California, AD4M Fitness is one of the world’s fastest-growing gym equipment producers with projected revenues of $10 million this year… their first year in business.
More notably, they’ve accomplished all of this during the COVID-19 pandemic, while gyms have been strained and the health and fitness industry has taken a toll. Sometimes, pure innovation and an unexpectedly genius distribution move are the secrets to building demand in a market hampered by a national crisis.
“My wife & I have been tackling all kinds of new challenges with manufacturing & importing equipment from overseas, and the logistical challenges of fulfilling 400-500 orders a day across the United States [are large]. Amazingly enough, [we’re doing this] all with five main products. If we can achieve this, the sky may be truly the limit.”
Here’s the description for AD4M’s dumbbells, one of their best-selling products:
“The FlexBell Adjustable Dumbbells are a modern day work of art. They come in a few different sizes but we decided to carry only the heavy duty 65LBS version.
These are incredibly compact, sleek, and easily adjustable with the flick of your wrist. The 65LBS (130LBS total weight) dumbbell set sells anywhere from $599 to $2,000 plus shipping anywhere on the net but here at Ad4m we’re able to offer them at an unbeatable price with free shipping anywhere within the continental USA.” (Source)
As Vincent and Monika explain to Medium:
“Putting consumer support, and satisfaction, first of course. We also plan on launching the best brand awareness, and marketing campaign the fitness industry has ever seen. We believe connecting with your consumer is really key so we’d love to build a very active social media presence, and really take people behind the scenes to see what we’re all really about.” (Source)
