A QUICK BIO OF OUR OWNER:
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.
