The idea for Garage Gyms was born during the first Coronavirus shutdown. People started scrambling to find at-home workout equipment as gyms all over the country closed. What we witnessed was people not knowing what to buy, what brands and models were best suited for their fitness needs and goals, and oftentimes overspending on items they didn't need or underspending on cheap equipment that was unsafe and would likely break.
From there, we decided we wanted to help people get the best quality home gym that was tailored to them without the stress of trying to find it, then waiting months for it to arrive, and finally trying to assemble and install it. Believe us, we saw the posts of frustration on Facebook!
So Garage Gyms was born.
The goal was pretty simple: Design and install quality home gyms for people who wanted the convenience of working out without the hassles. We put hours and weeks and months into planning, brainstorming, sourcing partnerships, and creating the Garage Gyms brand.
Today, we serve Northeast Florida including Jacksonville, Amelia Island, and the Beaches. We also have plans to expand into franchises in other cities so more people can get the Garage Gyms workout experience from the comfort of their own homes.
We know a garage gym isn't for everyone. We believe that Garage Gyms is a brand for those who train hard and don't believe in excuses, for those who want their gym their way, and for those taking control of their bodies without worrying about shutdowns, restrictions, commutes, crowds, or distractions. It's essentially a no-b.s. way to work out, and we love that.
Thanks for being a part of this movement.
