At Gymstop we had one idea in mind, bringing our customers affordable prices for the big brands. As we buy in bulk, it would be rude for us not to pass the saving onto you!
Our goal is to become the biggest online fitness superstore in Europe- a bit of a challenge, but our team think it' possible. It's always good to have a realistic goal, and we believe that it's realistic.
The History of Gymstop
Gymstop started in 2016, it was originally called SportyThings when it was first planned to launch, but we quickly changed the name to Gymstop. We first started selling basic stringers online, and quickly noticing the demand for supplements we branched out.
Early 2017 we moved from our founders’ kitchen into our own little warehouse, by little it was a similar size to a standard garage. We purchased our first screen printer, not to do our own clothing, but to print our own boxes to give our customers a personal feel with the brand. Every box we have ever sent out has been handprinted by us.
During 2017 Gymstop grew from 1 to 3 orders per day to over 30 a day. We dispatched 6 days a week, focusing on getting orders to customers quickly and without any hassle. December 2017 we shipped just over 1000 orders! Our busiest month yet and it only got busier.
Early 2018 we started looking for a bigger warehouse, started to develop partnerships with our suppliers to offer better prices to our customers, and joining new partnerships with suppliers to offer the products in high demand. In 2018 we have large and exciting plans to take us to the next step, so watch this space.
We are a Registered Company in the United Kingdom, and our Registered Company No. is 10858621.
