About Gymshark

Gymshark’s legacy was built in the weight room. There was never a masterplan, just a love for training and a new era emerging. That’s where we came in: a sewing machine, a screen-printer and a young teenager and and a group of his high-school friends, who just knew something different was needed. From a garage in Birmingham to a global billion-dollar company, Gymshark is constantly evolving. Today our purpose is that we exist to unite the conditioning community.

We pride ourselves on being a team of grafters and innovators. But above all else, we are a family. Our community is ambitious and hard-working. We are committed and consistent. We are passionate and progressive. Simply put, we are visionaries.
