Based in Casper, Wyoming with a distribution center in San Jose, California, AD4M Fitness is one of the world’s premier gym equipment and athletic brands with projected revenues of $10 million this year.
And they’re not even a year old. And they started business in the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic.
AD4M Fitness is bringing in a searing $1 million in revenue each month, with projections of up to $10 million in their first year of business. AD4M Fitness provides weightlifting equipment like barbells and dumbbells at deeply discounted rates to gyms, who have been nothing short of ravaged by the economic downturn of 2020.
Being a gym owner isn’t the most ideal position at the moment, as gyms have been hit the hardest by drops in membership and are doubly affected by equipment shortages while manufacturers lessen their output… a vicious cycle of supply and demand gone bad.
This is exactly why AD4M’s low-cost products have dominated the market.
Founded by husband-and-wife combo Vincent and Monika, AD4M is a meteoric story of hard work, ingenuity, and blending two industries no one would expect. Vincent is an Italian American entrepreneur, an early investor in cryptocurrency and a US Army veteran. His wife, Monika, is Polish, and after moving to America 6 years ago, she began working in logistics for a big retailer, which provided much of the background for AD4M’s incredible manufacturing and distribution network.
Early on, Vincent and Monika approached a steel manufacturer focused on auto parts, and convinced them to start building cast-iron Olympic-style weightlifting plates using the same raw materials and machinery. This helped keep overhead low, and AD4M experienced incredible gym demand.
Here’s the description for AD4M’s dumbbells, one of their best-selling products:
“The FlexBell Adjustable Dumbbells are a modern day work of art. They come in a few different sizes but we decided to carry only the heavy duty 65LBS version.
These are incredibly compact, sleek, and easily adjustable with the flick of your wrist. The 65LBS (130LBS total weight) dumbbell set sells anywhere from $599 to $2,000 plus shipping anywhere on the net but here at Ad4m we’re able to offer them at an unbeatable price with free shipping anywhere within the continental USA.” (Source: https://ad4m.com/products/flexbell-adjustable-dumbbells-2x65lbs)
Vincent explains, “My wife & I have been tackling all kinds of new challenges with manufacturing & importing equipment from overseas, and the logistical challenges of fulfilling 400-500 orders a day across the United States [are large]. Amazingly enough, [we’re doing this] all with five main products. If we can achieve this, the sky may be truly the limit… [We have a] new line of gym equipment, sponsoring power lifting & strong man events, and a line of athletic wear [in the works]. We aim to leverage our early success to invest in building value & public awareness into our brand. The long term goal would definitely be to establish US-based manufacturing and go public.”
For a company that turned an auto-parts manufacturer into a gym-equipment manufacturer almost overnight, and has managed to bring in over $1 million in monthly sales, there truly is no limit.
