FIBO Show in Cologne, Germany

The past two months have been very busy for Hampton Fitness. In March we attended the IHRSA trade show held in San Diego, California. And in April we travelled all the way to Cologne, Germany for the FIBO show.

At IHRSA we showcased the strength-training line that have become an industry staple ever since we got our start in the fitness business twenty-two years ago. We brought dumbbells, olympic plates, racks and group-ex equipment set up in the booth to highlight our Hampton strength training line.

We also debuted our Hero Strength accessory line of equipment that includes medicine balls, wall balls, slam balls, plyo-boxes, battle-ropes, and strength-bands.

We held a Terra-Core and Hampton Fitness challenge and giveaway. Terra-Core brought their stability balance trainers that we paired with our medicine balls and Jelly-Bell dumbbells to increase the difficulty of the Terra-Core equipment and challenge the competitor’s cores to its fullest.

The women who entered our booth for the challenge put the men to shame! Here are all these shredded muscle-men strolling in confident that they would have no problem completing the challenge, only to walk away shaking their heads at how hard it was.

We also met with our favorite gym owners from South Africa, SWEAT 1000, who use Hampton Jelly-Bells in all of their group-ex classes and have been loyal supporters of ours ever since we began our partnership with them two years ago.

IHRSA is an inspiration every year and this year definitely did not disappoint. There are so many great products out there. We left inspired to elevate our products to an even higher level and with an appreciation of the continued growth of the fitness industry.

Next came our trip to Cologne for the FIBO trade show. Here we met with all of our international customers and were able to make introductions to new partners in the fitness industry as well.

Jeremy Jay who is Hampton’s Global Brand manager had this to say of the FIBO experience:

“My experience at the FIBO 2018 exhibition was an incredible learning opportunity for our company to continue progressing into the future of the industry. We made great contacts with wonderful people around the world. It was an honor to connect and continue building trust with our partners from Russia and the GCC, namely, Well-Mir and Sports Group Kuwait. Another highlight was our rendezvous with MFitness who we are proud to establish a new partnership with in the UK market. Overall, this was a jubilant experience for Hampton Fitness and we cannot wait to participate again at FIBO 2019.”

FIBO gives great opportunity to spread our Hampton products throughout the world. It also gives us the potential to see what direction fitness is moving country to country. And to meet such amazing innovators in the industry.
