Functional and strength training has been at the core of our mission and workout philosophy since we embarked on this journey over 25 years ago.
We took a simple resistance training tool, built by my father when I was a teenager, and this became the central idea for our family business start-up, the formation of Escape Fitness and becoming the first company to develop an affordable SBX dumbbell for the UK fitness industry.
Having saved up to import into the UK, we hit our lucky break when a small start-up reached out to us with a problem; they had been let down by their supplier and urgently needed a set of dumbbells for their grand opening the next morning. Presented with the opportunity, we delivered that very same evening.
That small start-up went on to become one of the biggest fitness chains in Europe, and in turn, helped us to become one of the largest suppliers of commercial free weights in the world. Over 1,100 tonnes shipped in the last 12 months alone proves that when you invest in an Escape product, you can guarantee your investment is in safe hands.
More than two decades later, we continue to solve problems for our customers through the design and build of high-quality, functional, free weight training equipment.
As one of the few fitness companies to own a dedicated manufacturing facility, we produce patented dumbbells and weight plates with complete control of the supply chain, from raw materials to shipping cartons. With no middle men, no trading agents and no additional costs built in, you can be assured you’re getting the best possible price and quality on the market.
