Every club should be filled with equipment that’s both beautiful and fun for members to use. But club owners are concerned with qualities beyond end-user satisfaction: They also need attractive, low-maintenance products that improve facility appearance and increase safety. These needs are what guides Hampton’s product innovations.
Hampton Fitness was founded on the idea that free weights aren’t a “necessary evil” for fitness facilities, they’re an essential part of the foundation of any gym. Hampton’s founders had years of experience in iron and steel manufacturing before entering the fitness industry with the launch of Hampton Fitness in 1996. The company’s dedicated team of fitness equipment experts is headquartered in Ventura, California, and Hampton free weight products are sold both directly and through a large network of independent dealers all over the country. It’s this strict attention to detail that sets Hampton products apart.
Hampton is committed to a tradition of innovation that can be seen in such product lines as its new Gel-Grip Urethane Series, Jelly Bells, Hybrid Barbells, Eclipse, Fusion, Dura-Bell, and Chrome Beauty Grip. If a change doesn’t advance the art of fitness cosmetically or functionally, then we don’t add it to our line. But it’s not only about the iron. Hampton knows that attractive, space-efficient storage displays can be as important to club owners as the weights themselves, so we spend almost as much time on the racking design as we do on what’s going on the rack.
We think the best innovations in free weights are still ahead of us. The more user-friendly we can make our equipment, the more people are going to want to go to the gym and get healthy.
Hampton is proud to be a part of an industry that has the potential to help people not just live stronger, but better.
