As a young boy I would remember my Dad taking me to the local YMCA while he would weight-lift.  While it isn’t allowed in today’s clubs I remember running around the track and wandering in the free weight area to keep myself busy.  I was the only kid in the gym.  They either didn’t have a kid-zone or my Dad just skipped over that part of the registration.  My Dad was an amateur bodybuilder that ranked in statewide competitive bodybuilding events in the late 70’s and regularly worked out in the 80’s.  As I got into my teenage years I began an interest in weightlifting that carried through high school and most of college.

It was fun and I always felt like I had an expert personal trainer in the house, which I did!  I was never a competitive bodybuilder like my Dad, but I enjoyed going to the gym and beating personal records and staying fit and healthy.  I didn’t pursue the fitness industry right out of college, but kept the passion close to heart.  I would follow all sorts of fitness idols from Mr Olympia qualifiers and Strong Man competitors to Professional Athletes and Extreme Sports.  I’ve always been encouraged and intrigued to learn about how someone becomes the best at something, how much practice, hard work and sacrifice is made to be at the top of their game.

About Pound4Pound Fitness Equipment
Used Fitness Equipment United States


I graduated from Northern Illinois University with a B.S. in Communications in 2004.  I sold software for 10 years and learned to master the craft of selling into C-Level Executive’s for Major and National Account companies, as well as a niche for selling to Owners of small and medium sized businesses.  I was a top producing sales individual and grew top producing sales teams.  Corporate America was fun and fulfilling, but I always had a desire to create a business that helped people. The idea fell into my lap during the 2009 recession.  My wife and I were having our 1st son and we were looking to cut back on expenses, which included our gym membership.

While still needing to stay fit I began the search to outfit a home gym with used equipment.  I quickly found out that there was an opportunity to acquire a large amount of used gym equipment during the recession and so my “hobby” began!  After a few years of figuring out the market, getting back into the industry from another angle and developing a business plan, Pound4Pound Fitness Equipment was created.  After boggling the start-up struggles for the first 2 years coupled with still producing in Corporate America I made the decision to run the business full-time in January of 2014.  As I previously mentioned applauding the athletes that are the best at a competitive level has also translated into being the best each of us can be for our personal health and fitness goals.  From my family to your family we invite you to ask us questions, visit us if you are local, provide us with your feedback and if you have an excellent experience – refer a friend!


Call us today if you are looking for a unit to be re-furbished or re-manufactured! We offer both conditions by request of our customers, and we will discuss with you our step-by-step process to make sure your expectations are met for equipment that is refurbished or remanufactured.
