GymQuip Fitness was created in 1992 with our first location on Townsville St Fyshwick. We were the first specialised fitness store in Canberra and quickly outgrew our initial location. In 1998 we moved to 6 Ipswich St and tripled in size. The 1400m2 superstore covered 3 levels and allowed us to broaden our range. Fast forward to 2012… we purpose built our current 2000m2 building at 16 Goolwa Plc Fyshwick. Co-tennanted with our mates Drummond Golf, this massive showroom has the largest fitness and spa offering in Canberra.
From Home to Hotel to Gym
In the early years we concentrated primarily on the domestic market, but over time we received more and more requests from the commercial market frustrated by lack of service from interstate companies. These companies were happy to sell equipment into the ACT, but after sales service was non-existent. We expanded into commercial market with some of the World’s best equipment including Body Solid, Circle Fitness, Water Rower, Concept 2, Horizon, DKN, Sportop and of course the world’s number 1 selling spa – Hot Spring.
We have seen the evolution of many items over the years. Treadmills once upon a time didn’t even have motors! Elliptical / Cross Trainers were once the new fad, now it is one of the most popular pieces of cardio equipment sold with over 20 models stocked! Exercise bikes are now whisper quiet, super smooth and fully enclosed so kiddies can’t lose their fingers anymore…. We have also seen the explosion of functional training, which covers endurance, stamina, strength, flexibility, power, agility and speed…. essentially the make-up of fitness. The beauty of Functional Training is you don’t need a whole heap of equipment and it is very cost effective.
