Born in an age of change, HyGYM was founded in the toughest of trading times.
Daniel and Shane started HyGYM from a single garage on a mission to help keep gyms open during the global pandemic and support mental health: originally providing PPE equipment for gyms.
We very quickly realised the impact of Covid-19 would close all gyms in the UK. So the mission changed. HyGYM understood the impact this would have on both physical and mental health.
We wanted to support and supply the UK with affordable, high-quality home gym equipment and encouraged everyone to keep training. We pushed on and had to combat many unforeseen circumstances. Brexit, global demand, stock pilling, weather, driver shortages… you name it, we saw it. It seemed everything, and everyone was experiencing a national shortage.
However, despite being a start-up and having to navigate through times no-one had ever seen before, with the entire world locked down, we continued to fight and overcome our challenges. We invested everything we had into stock and made a bold decision to take on our first employee.
The demand for fitness equipment continued to rise, and fast running out of space, we knocked on the door of a local farmer. Managing to scale up the business premises, we surrounded ourselves with a team of like-minded people to power up the operation. We now had a 3,000sqf barn to work with. Ok, granted, it was -4 degree conditions, but still, it was watertight and gave us the foundations to create the working environment we wanted. This allowed us the space to design and manufacture products in the UK and become one of the UK’s leading suppliers for home gym equipment.
With your continued support, we very quickly outgrew the barn; with the world slowly moving back to more normal times, we managed to secure a much more serious premises in Swindon.
This allowed us to be extremely more efficient (and warm!) in our response and delivery times, grow our product range and design more products in-house – based on your feedback. We now offer a next day delivery and click and collect service.
Our ethos is simply to bring the most comprehensive range of reliable, affordable, high-quality products that are available to the UK and EU – backed by award-winning customer service and advice in designing the dream set up, tailored to the level of the individual.
