Adam said: “We are very proud of our local roots and the growth of the business has surpassed our wildest expectations.

“The three of us met up when we were personal trainers at a gym in Redhill many moons ago.

“Health and wellbeing is very important to all of us and the fitness marketplace sector is growing at a rapid rate.

“We offer a full range of top end to budget equipment at discounts of up to 60 per cent.

“Although a predominantly online business, customers can visit our Colwick warehouse by prior appointment.”

The origins of the company date back 15 years to when Adam operated out of a barn in the Notts countryside.

“I was offered a run-down treadmill, repaired it myself and that ultimately was the kickstarter for the business.

“All three of us are passionate about health and fitness.  Our company helps to encourage people to achieve their own personal fitness and lifestyle ambitions, irrespective of age from beginner through to elite level.”

Official stockists of NordicTrack, ProForm, Jordan, Precor, Technogym, Life Fitness, Concept 2 and more, The Fitness Marketplace offers a full range of equipment including running machines, cross-trainers, treadmills, elliptical, steppers and rowing machines.

The company has also created its own in-house MAS range for the commercial sector featuring dual adjustable pulley machines, benches, dumbbells, weight plates, bars and racks.
