In , former bodybuilder and US Marine, Joe Gold opened up a gym in Venice California as a place for himself and his friends to train. Charging $60 a year, Joe kept costs down by making his own gym equipment, skimping on the heating and recruiting every bodybuilder worth his salt as a member.

Unbeknownst to Joe, his simple gym would eventually become an institution in the fitness world.

Why open a gym?

Since the early s muscle men had flocked to California to join the growing bodybuilding community at Venice Beach. Back then the Santa Monica Pier severed as the go to gym for aspiring muscle men.

Crudely decked out on a wooden platform lifters competed over free weights, rings, dip and chin up bars. It wasn&#;t unknown for legends such like Steve Reeves to train in Santa Monica. In however, things changed.

Following allegations of sexual misconduct by a small cohort of bodybuilders, a decision was taken by the Santa Monica City Council to pull weights from the beach. Bodybuilders were seen as an anti-social group and the decision to force them from the beaches and into small indoor gyms hardly helped matters.

Bodybuilders begrudgingly made their way into nearby gyms like the Dungeon, Wilshire or Muscle Beach Gym. There was one bodybuilder who wasn&#;t content with the selection of gyms on offer.

In , Joe Gold decided to open his own training facility for himself and his former Santa Monica compatriots. A man well versed in the comings and goings of the real estate market, Gold by then had amassed a tidy number of beachfront properties for a small sum. Joe soon decided that one of his properties on Pacific Avenue would serve as his new gym.

joe-gold-cropJoe Gold in his prime

Gold had chosen his location well. Santa Monica&#;s lifters were Joe&#;s first pool of members and when rumors began to emerge around Venice that Gold was opening up a serious training gym, lifters could hardly contain their excitement. Dick Tyler writing in August being one such example;

Here&#;s big news to all the BIG men reading this column. Well-known California muscle man, Joe Gold will soon be opening a gym at Pacific Ave. in Venice. For those of you who now know, Venice is just a stone&#;s throw from famed Muscle Beach. Joe, who owns some real estate hereabouts, is building the gym from the ground up. Nothing &#;made over&#; for Joe. Now this is going to be a gym for men. No fancy rugs or chrome &#; just plain old-fashioned weights and the greatest apparatus you ever saw.

How&#;s this for dumbbells? The gym will have two complete sets of dumbbells going from 10 lbs. to 80lbs. in five pound jumps. From there they&#;ll go to lbs. by tens. Already Joe is having equipment made to order for the specialists. Joe is a Weider man and you can bet your bottom dollar that this is going to be a hot bed of training for Southern California strong men. Co-managing will be ole Zabo Koszewski himself. How can they miss? Those of you not already here in &#;Sunsville&#; better make Gold&#;s gym a tourist attraction.

Tyler&#;s predictions that the gym would be a hot bed of training proved to be true. Within five years Gold&#;s boasted a veritable who&#;s who of the bodybuilding scene with legends like Zane, Arnold and Franco all regular attendees but as the gym became increasingly popular, its owner became increasingly disgruntled. The gym was a money pit.

In , Joe Gold sold the gym for $50, and became a merchant marine.

The Birth of Mecca

With Joe Gold now out at high seas, Gold&#;s Gym fell into the hands of Dave Saxe and Bud Danitz who ran the gym for a little over two years before selling it on to Ken Sprague. Sprague had been training at Golds since and as owner he would oversee its first expansion.

Almost immediately after buying the gym Sprague began sponsoring bodybuilding contests, which regularly drew upwards of 5, fans. Sensing the need to attract greater and greater audience numbers, Sprague would create circus spectacles where half-clad bodybuilders would rid atop bull elephants to the music of brass bands. Amidst all this chaos, the Gold&#;s Gym logo would be brandished.

MSprague would put the Gold&#;s logo on anything he could

As luck would have it, it was the logo that helped Golds spread across California. In , Ric Drasin created a new logo for Gold&#;s Gym on the back of a napkin. The logo of a bald brooding lifter, caught Sprague&#;s attention, who instantly began putting them on Gold&#;s Gym T-shirts. Every the promoter, Sprague would have bodybuilders wear them during photo ops and on the beach. The strategy paid off too. At one point Sprague was selling t-shirts faster than he could mail them out.

goldsgymlogoricdrasinDrasin&#;s Gold&#;s Logo was an instant hit

By , Sprague had cemented Gold&#;s position as THE place to train for bodybuilders. It was a mecca for men of strength and a golden age for bodybuilding. Al Antuck musings in Ironman magazine showed as much

Why are some restaurants and other establishments the &#;in&#; places to go?&#;Whatever it is, Gold&#;s Gym on Pacific Avenue, one block from the beach in Venice, California has it. Gold&#;s attracts many of the top California physique stars &#; Schwarzenegger, Zane, Draper, Columbu, Bill Grant, Birdsong, to name a few&#;.

Gold&#;s is a bodybuilders&#; gym. Here you won&#;t find business men types who work out just to stay in shape. Most members are bodybuilders who work hard to gain bulk, density and symmetry, and they work hard with minimum time for kibitzing or goofing-off.

The idea that Gold&#;s was some form of Bodybuilding Mecca was born but there was something the sport still lacked. Mainstream acceptance.

Pumping Iron and Going Hollywood

Pumping_Iron_movie_poster

In , freelance photographer George Butler and his partner, novelist Charles Gaines, called Sprague about the possibility of filming some of the bodybuilders in California. The two men had been responsible for Pumping Iron a book on the subculture of bodybuilding published that same year, which had met with financial success. The clear interest in bodybuilding from the general public encouraged the two men their work to the silver screen.

Despite the success of Pumping Ironthe book, Gaines and Butler failed to secure any real form of funding for a movie. Studios were doubtful that a documentary on a niche subculture would garner any interest whatsoever. Not that the lack of support deterred the two men. Keeping costs to the bear minimum, Butler and Gaines managed to raise enough money for the necessary equipment and a contract for the star Arnold Schwarzenegger ($50, for the Austrian Oak&#;s services). Luckily for the aspiring film makers, they managed to secure a free venue for the majority of their filming, none other than Gold&#;s Gym. There the two men would film legends like Arnold, Columbu, Waller and countless others lift weights with unparallelled intensity.

Pumping-IronStill from Pumping Iron

The movie itself was shot over the course of a month and detailed the epic bodybuilding battle between Arnold and Lou Ferrigno for the Mr. Universe and Mr. Olympia titles. Aside from the constant financial worry the two men faced, they also had to deal with massaging the egos of the periphery lifters. Whilst Arnold was earning $50,, the rest were given paltry contracts, something that irked the men in Golds. Every now and then, scenes would have to be re-shot after a disgruntled bodybuilder deliberately stepped into frame. Eventually however, deals were struck and by the end of , Butler had all but wrapped up shooting the movie.

All he had to show for his work was a single print of the movie and no means of promoting it. For two years, the movie sat in the back offices of studios in what film buffs refer to as development hell. Frustrated that his movie would never see the light of day, Butler rented out space at the Whitney Museum in New York and had Arnold and Ken Waller pose on rotating discs to raise money. To increase interest in the event, Butler arranged for Candice Bergen to be a celebrity commentator and made noise about the fact that Arnold, then a Golden Glove winner for his performance in Stay Hunger would be posing. The theme of the exhibition was living art and surprisingly, the art critics loved it. Butler had only expected people to show up. Instead he got 5, and more money than he could fit in the registers. The publicity stunt worked, and allowed Butler to finish production on his movie.

In Pumping Iron finally hit US scenes and although fewer than one million Americans ended up seeing it that year, a buzz had been created. Soon after the movie&#;s release stars such as Clint Eastwood and Muhammad Ali began to show up at Golds looking to train at the Mecca of bodybuilding. Hollywood and popular culture became hooked on muscle.

The following years saw Arnold become a movie star with flicks such as Conan, Ferrigno become the Hulk and mainstream actors like Stallone, Weathers and Eastwood display chiseled physiques in their movies. Sprague&#;s Golds suddenly began to feature in fashion magazines and even a piece on 60 minutes. During this time, dues at Golds reached $, a far cry from the $60 Joe Gold had charged in the beginning.

Gold&#;s in the s

By the s bodybuilding and fitness in general had entered the mainstream, sadly Sprague would not be part of it. In the late s following a personal tragedy, Sprague sold Golds on to Pete Grymkowski, Tim Kimber and Ed Connors. The three men would help expand Golds&#; influence across the US.

In Connors commissioned the first ever licensed Gold’s Gym in San Francisco in and began spawning out licensees across the US. By , there were over 5, Golds in the United States. Connors appears to have had a keen eye for the fitness industry, opening up the first group fitness class in Golds in , about a decade before such movements became popular.

The s were a period of sustained growth for the club, both domestically and abroad. In the gym went international, opening up its first branch in Canada to the joy of Canadian lifters everywhere. Unsurprisingly, the growing expansion of the gym franchise meant that the Gold brand began to pop up everywhere in American popular culture. The iconic Drasin designed t-shirts was worn by Carl Weathers in an SNL skit and by numerous celebrity figures in other TV shows and films during this time.

The Nineties

By the time the s rolled into the 90s, Golds membership established itself as a status symbol, with some scholars arguing that it became the McDonalds of the fitness community. From Janet Jackson to Michael Jordan, the Golds brand was pictured with a plethora of celebrities. By the gym franchises had over one million members and Gold&#;s trainers were often presented as experts in the field appearing in local and regional magazines with the latest fitness tips.

In , chains were opened in Europe and Asia, including Moscow. Less than 5 years after the collapse of the Soviet Union, Gold&#;s Gym, an American institution had found it&#;s way into the heart of Russia.

Gold&#;s Gym became a worldwide phenomena

The continued success of the chain did have its downsides however. Catering to larger and larger demographics meant that Golds was forced to move with the winds of the fitness industry. The releative re-birth of the cardio age saw Golds shift its focus more towards treadmills, steppers and group classes. Free weights were still there, but now they took a secondary place to everything else the gym had to offer. During the 90s, the franchise would be bought by Brockway Moran for an undisclosed fee. The private equity firm would spend five years acquiring other gyms and branching out the chain even further.

to Present Day

In , Gold&#;s was bought by TRT Holdings for over $ million. TRT Holdings slowly but surely helped Gold&#;s evolve even further into a cross-sector company that happened to specialize in fitness.

In , the company created its own Gold&#;s Gym Fitness Institute to serve as a think tank on critical health and fitness issues. The same year also saw Gold&#;s branch out and become a national fitness sponsor of the American Diabetes Association&#;s Tour de Cure. In , Gold&#;s released a Cardio workout on the Nintendo Wii. All of which serves to demonstrate how Gold&#;s has moved away from being solely a gym into a multi-agency machine.

TRT never slowed down on Gold&#;s expansion either. At the time of writing the gym franchise boasts locations in 37 U.S. states and 20 other countries with over three million members worldwide. It&#;s a far cry from the cold shack opened up by Joe Gold for his buddies in the &#;60s.

Gold&#;s Gym XRS 50 Home Gym

Content Protection by DMCA.com

The Gold&#;s Gym XRS 50 strength training machine is quite similar to the XR 55 model that we&#;ve already reviewed. However, it lacks the preacher pad attachment and includes a slightly lighter weight stack. It&#;s a machine made for home use but does offer the possibility to perform exercises for most muscles.

Key Features and Specifications

  • Assembled dimensions: 64L x 38W x H inches (L x 97W x H cm)
  • Max. user capacity: lbs ( kg)
  • Stack weight: lbs ( kg)
  • Max. weight resistance: lbs ( kg)
  • Possible exercises: 35+
  • Warranty: Parts 90 days / Labor 90 days

Frame construction, parts, accessories

The Gold&#;s Gym XRS 50 features a heavy-duty steel frame combining polygonal and cylindrical tubes in its construction. All the steel parts are coated with a corrosion-resistant paint finish; the colors used are gray and light gray, with the &#;Gold&#;s Gym&#; logo painted in yellow on the covers of the weight stack.

The fully assembled machine is not extremely large compared with other home gyms, such as the Body-Solid G2B, for example. Its footprint is approx. 64&#;L x 38&#;W ( x 97 cm), to which it is recommended to allow at least two feet of clearance all around. Also, its height is approx. &#; ( cm) which means it can fit in a room with a 7&#; ceiling. These being said, the XRS 50 may not be the best choice for users over 6&#;0&#; ( cm), as the cable length may not provide a complete range of motion for all exercises.

The fully assembled unit is fairly heavy as well. It weighs close to lbs ( lbs), so it is not meant to be moved once it is assembled. All this weight can be a plus as it provides plenty of stability for the machine. It doesn&#;t need to be anchored to the floor, and does not have pre-drilled holes for it. However, it is recommended to place it on a rubberized mat, to prevent floor damage.

The Gold&#;s Gym XRS 50 integrates 13 heavy-duty pulleys (9 standard pulleys, 2 v-pulleys, and 2 thin pulleys). They&#;re all made of durable nylon material designed to withstand prolonged usage. They also integrate ball bearings to provide a smoother cable motion.

The machine is equipped with three main cables. Their exact weight capacity is not specified, but they should handle at least times more weight than the machine&#;s stack and weight resistance.

The seat and backrest of the XRS 50 don&#;t offer any adjustability. They attach directly to their bars via four screws each. They integrate approx. &#; (3 cm) of foam padding for optimal comfort and their upholstery is made of durable vinyl material. Also, the seat pad and its sustaining bar are rated for a user weight capacity of lbs ( kg).

In terms of accessories, this home gym system includes a lat bar, a D-handle, and an extension chain. As we&#;ve mentioned above, a preacher pad is not included with the XRS 50, and the machine does not offer the possibility to add one. Therefore, if you want a model with a preacher pad attachment, the XR 55 is the one you should opt for.

Workout stations

The Gold&#;s Gym XRS 50 home gym includes three main workout stations. These are:

High pulley station. This workout station offers the possibility to perform a wide array of high-pulley exercises, such as lat pull-downs, tricep press-downs, and even ab crunches. A standard lat pull-down bar with curved grips is included with the machine. The unit&#;s high pulley offers a maximum weight resistance of lbs (~59 kg).

Press & fly station. The front press of the XRS 50 home gym offers double functionality. It can be used as a front press or as a pec fly station. It is equipped with thick foam pads for extra comfort during fly exercises, and multi-grips for seated chest press exercises. The maximum weight resistance for the press is lbs ( kg) while the max. resistance provided by the fly arm is lbs (~52 kg).

Low pulley station. The machine&#;s low pulley offers the possibility to execute seated rows, bicep curls, or leg abductions. A short bar for low rows, and an ankle cuff are not included, though. However, the machine is equipped with a leg developer attachment which has 4&#; foam rollers for extra comfort during leg extensions. The leg developer attachment produces the highest weight resistance of all the workout system. With all 9 plates loaded, it generates lbs ( kg) of weight resistance.

Weight Resistance

The XRS 50 is a weight stack home gym system. Its weight stack is composed of 9 weight plates, each one weighing approx. lbs. The total weight of the stack is approx. lbs ( kg).

It is important to mention, though, that the weight plates are not made of cast iron. They are cement weight plates coated with a layer of durable vinyl material. This is one of the reasons this fitness machine is considerably cheaper than one with a cast iron stack, like the Body-Solid G1S, for example. But nonetheless, since the XRS 50 is intended for home use, even if the plates are not made of cast iron, they can still last a lifetime. That&#;s because a home-use machine takes a lot less abuse than one used non-stop in the premises of a gym club. Plus, due to the vinyl coating, the impact between the plates during exercising generates considerably less noise.

This Gold&#;s Gym strength training system doesn&#;t offer fixed weight ratios for its workout stations. Depending on the pulleys used and the selected load, the machine produces different resistance. The weight ratios for each station are shown in the table below:

Last but not least, the machine&#;s weight stack cannot be upgraded with extra weight plates. However, you can still add micro-adjustment elements for lbs or 5 lbs adjustments. This may be necessary because sometimes the resistance gaps between one or two extra plates can be more than 20 lbs.

Possible Exercises

The XRS 50 strength training machine offers the possibility to perform more than 35, gym-quality exercises. Some of the most important of them are:

  • Seated Biceps Curls
  • Stand-up Biceps Curls
  • Concentration Curls
  • Triceps Press-downs
  • Triceps Extensions
  • Triceps Kickbacks
  • Ab Pulldowns
  • Low Pulley Trunk Rotations
  • Deltoid Raises
  • Seated Rows
  • Upright Rows
  • Vertical Grip Chest Presses
  • Horizontal Grip Chest Presses
  • High Cable Cross-Overs
  • Lat Pulldowns
  • High Pulley Ab Crunches
  • Standing One-Leg Curls
  • Leg Extensions
  • Leg Abductions
  • Leg Adductions
  • Kickbacks
  • Squats
  • … and more.

Assembly and Maintenance

This home gym requires complete assembly and comes in two large and pretty heavy boxes. Therefore, its transport and assembly is a two-person task. The whole assembly process will take at least hours, but it&#;s not too difficult and the included manual provides very clear step-by-step assembly instructions and schematics. The necessary tools for the assembly are not included, though. You will need two adjustable wrenches, a rubber mallet, one Phillips screwdriver, and one standard screwdriver.

Once the unit is assembled, maintenance doesn&#;t require much. In case the pulleys develop squeaking noises, some lubrication may be required. The guide rods of the weight stack should also be lubricated for a smoother travel of the weight stack.

The Pros

  • Excellent construction, extremely sturdy frame;
  • Thick and durable vinyl upholstery, with consistent padding for maximum comfort;
  • Consistent foam padding on the chest bars and leg workout station;
  • Relatively small footprint for a home gym system;
  • Three main workout stations including high pulley, front & fly press, and low pulley with leg developer attachment;
  • Over 35 exercises available;
  • Up to lbs of weight resistance;
  • Quiet operation, a suitable machine for apartment use;
  • Lat bar included; 
  • Extension chain included;
  • D-handle included;
  • Little maintenance required;
  • Fairly easy to assemble.

The Cons

  • No preacher curl attachment possibility;
  • The seat is non-adjustable;
  • Short bar for low rows is not included;
  • Ankle cuff is not included.

Summary

The Gold&#;s Gym XRS 50 is a weight stack gym system designed for home use. It includes a lb, cement-vinyl weight stack, and three main workout stations. It offers the possibility to perform more than 35 gym-quality exercises. It’s a perfect choice for beginners and intermediate users, but since the weight stack is not upgradable, it may not suffice for advanced users. It&#;s also not recommended for users taller than 6&#;0&#; as it&#;s not a very large fitness machine. In all, it&#;s an affordable home gym great for a full-body workout, offering excellent value for the price.

KICKED OUT OF GOLD’S GYM ( 2nd TIME)

Humans’ fragile understanding of worth and employment has long been tested by comically effective get-rich-quick schemes — think rare Beanie Babies or the volatile world of cryptocurrency. Now there’s a “why didn’t I think of that?” business idea for the pandemic era: reselling dumbbells.

Literal, not figurative, dumbbells.

Dumbbells — cast iron molded to a specific shape, set to a specific weight, and created for the simple act of being picked up and put down — have become some of the most coveted items of Like cookware or cars or electronics, there’s a range of quality when it comes to dumbbells that might not be apparent at first glance. Some dumbbells are worth every penny. But on the resale market, on sites like eBay, Facebook Marketplace, and Craigslist, dumbbells are being sold for twice to sometimes six or seven times the amount they went for before the coronavirus pandemic struck.

The markup and profits are the result of a dumbbell shortage combined with meteoric demand. But there’s something else happening: This new supply of ravenous consumers is largely uninformed about the market, and resellers are eager to take advantage of that perfect storm.

“And you know, of course, the million-dollar question is: Is this thing going to correct itself? And what happens when it does?” American Barbell CEO Phil Patti told me. “The bottom line is we don’t see that happening anytime soon.”

America has a dumbbell shortage and an excess of resellers

Understanding the lucrative dumbbell resale market means understanding the shortage. The pandemic resulted in gym shutdowns across the country in March. With their fitness plans in limbo, people started ordering weights from retailers, which burned through their inventory and placed orders that most likely went through China (according to my sources, the country accounts for 95 percent of cast-iron weights). At the same time, China’s winter and spring lockdowns gummed up the supply chain. Retailers’ stock remains sporadic, sometimes taking months to ship.

This shortage put resellers at an advantage.

“I never once considered selling everything that I own. I had everything that I wanted,” Brian Doyle, a former NCAA coach and home-gym enthusiast, told me. “Once I put it on paper, and I saw exactly how much money that the market was telling me that I could make off of my gym, that told me,‘Go ahead, you’re gonna make a 3x return on your investment on this.’”

Doyle said he had been working on his home gym for five or six years before selling everything during the pandemic. He then used that money to repurchase a more expansive home gym. Putting Doyle’s flip into plain English, the weights and dumbbells he was looking at two years ago were going for less than $1 per pound, sometimes as low as 50 cents per pound. Those same weights now go for $ to $3 (or even more) per pound on the resale market.

If you were to buy a pound dumbbell at the cents-per-pound steal Doyle found, it would cost $5. On the current resale market, that pound weight could be $30 (if not more). That’s a percent difference. Obtain and sell enough weights, or really anything at a percent markup, and you’ve got an extremely profitable business model. Or one that could, if enforced, qualify as price gouging.

“I’m defending the secondhand market because price gouging is typically only enforceable in retail, not in secondhand sale,” Doyle said. “You know, the secondhand market is free game. It’s the wild, wild west.”

As Doyle points out, there isn’t a federal law against resellers marking up their prices. He saw it happen to the very dumbbells he sold.

“When I sold everything here, I sold my dumbbells at $ a pound,” he told me. Later, “I saw four pairs of my dumbbells marked up for $2 a pound. They were listed online two days after I sold them. And so I see it happening immediately with the stuff that I sold. I sold it at what I thought was a very reasonable price.”

Reseller Lupe Barajas told me he makes roughly a 30 percent profit from the weights he’s been buying at retail. His strategy is to go directly to retail stores, ask when shipments come in, and then flip the weights that he buys.

“Big 5 [Sporting Goods] gets loads once a week, and Walmart is pretty much every day but varies,” Barajas said. “Usually workers will let me know when that is and I make sure I get there in the morning, when everything is stocked up.”

While Barajas started out selling on eBay, he learned that selling locally was a better option, since he could avoid shipping fees and eBay’s cut. I asked him what he would say to a buyer who says he and other resellers are price gouging.

“I think that should be motivation to producers of items that there is a shortage on,” he said. “It’s not just gym equipment — there’s tons of items people increase the price on. But some people like the convenience of knowing someone like myself has the item available and are fine paying a little more, versus going to stores and the store not having what they want and they’re just wasting their time.”

While writing this story, I received tips about more complex sourcing and selling techniques, from bots that crawl Amazon to sellers who have found that moving equipment was more lucrative than their current career. Those sellers declined to speak to me on the record, though I spoke with a few one-off resellers who had stories about selling adjustable dumbbells and even equipment like Nintendo’s Ring Fit Adventure video game for around double the price.

Earlier this year in March, a man from Tennessee hoarded 17, bottles of hand sanitizer in an attempt to make a monster profit. His plan went awry when lawmakers like Gov. Andrew Cuomo took action against price gouging, and websites like Amazon followed suit and blocked bad actors.

That said, dumbbells and weights aren’t considered “essential” items during the pandemic the way sanitizer and other items were. There’s also no law or even Amazon directive that bars you from hypothetically purchasing dumbbells from a seller looking to make an exponential profit. The reverse is also true: There isn’t anything stopping sellers on Amazon or Craigslist or Facebook Marketplace. And it’s worth noting that these extreme markups, while rare, are actually commonplace with items such as sneakers and watches.

The transactions, as simple as a click on Venmo, are often unregulated.

It’s not hard to find the resellers on sites such as eBay or Facebook Marketplace, the latter of which features multiple sellers offering dumbbells at $2 to $ per pound. On the r/flipping subreddit, sellers share stories about how buyers’ offers for dumbbells have skyrocketed during the pandemic and strategize about whether gym reopenings will drive prices down.

Dumbbells have become a luxury.

No one needs them right now, but there’s a premium on having them because for the most part, how we work out still hasn’t returned to “normal.” Even in places where gyms are open, some people might not be comfortable working out with others amid the pandemic.

Retailers sell weights for a fair price with delays, but with dumbbells that allow you to work out right away, you run the risk of getting hosed. Doyle summed up the price dilemma: “How much is my time worth? How much is it worth to not wait two months to get what I want right now?”

The answer, it seems, is as much as a percent markup.

How uninformed customers have driven up dumbbell prices

For 42 years, American Barbell was a behind-the-scenes player and commercial manufacturer of, you guessed it, American barbells. It supplied everyone from Orange Theory to Planet Fitness, but when the pandemic struck, most of its business — $ million of the $30 million it did in — shut down overnight.

As American Barbell’s Patti tells it, it was a crisis — for about a week.

As the CEO was plotting his next move, one of his partners came to him. “He said, ‘We have $4 million in internet orders,’” Patti told me. “In we did about $1 million to $ million in total [online]. Now we had $4 million all at once.”

In the before times, gyms such as Gold’s or Equinox or Planet Fitness edited and picked out weights for their customers. According to Patti, these customers were now ready to spend money without having a clue what to buy. And as a result, resellers and new retailers looking to cash in on booming demand are getting away with selling or reselling poor-quality products at astronomical prices.

Take hexagonal-shaped dumbbells, for example.

“Hex bells are very, very popular for the home market. They’ve been around forever,” Patti explained. “But you know, you can buy one that’s recycled rubber that smells like old car tires, and it’ll smell up a room and, you know, gag people. That’s the majority of what people sell.” (Rubber and urethane-coated dumbbells are popular because they protect both the equipment and surfaces like your floor.)

Patti is very clear that his products aren’t cheap — he said they signify premium, top-shelf strength-training products. His rubber hex bells are going for the high end of retail value ($ to $ per pound), but he argues that you’re paying for quality and natural, non-stinky rubber that won’t induce your gag reflex.

The thought being that if you’re already paying a premium, above-market price for a product, you might as well go with a premium product. Further, Patti said the influx of new and resold product could result in serious safety issues, such as equipment falling apart or something disastrous, like an Olympic bar snapping.

“We realize that, boy, the public needs a little bit of education because to us it’s a tremendous disservice to watch all these people that are making big money,” Patti told me. “They don’t deserve it. They haven’t put in any dues. They’re just capitalizing on, you know, the unknowing customer, and to me, I take that extremely personal.”

Doyle, the home-gym expert, echoed what Patti said about education. He said he was at an advantage because he’d been building and researching his home gym for years, as well as coaching college athletes. He knew what to look for and the price points to seek out.

“Without market knowledge, it’s kind of like shooting a dart with your eyes closed trying to find the right price,” Doyle said.

Patti said he doesn’t see the market shifting back to gyms anytime soon or in the capacity it once was, at least not until a vaccine is created. He doesn’t blame people for not wanting to be in a tight space working out with others. He also doesn’t blame consumers for wanting to bring those workouts home — he just wants them to be more educated.

“Don’t be afraid to ask the seller tons of questions,” Patti told me. “If you’re buying something very inferior and you’re paying a Ferrari price, that’s a problem.”
