SPENGA chooses BeaverFit as new provider of innovative strength solution

BeaverFit has partnered with SPENGA to be the new provider of the ‘strength pod’, an equipment storage and racking system used by the rapidly growing fitness franchise.   Also known as the BeaverFit Single Post, this functional training solution maximizes exercise and storage capabilities in a compact design.  “By partnering with BeaverFit, SPENGA is now able to enhance the member experience by adding functionality and equipment without needing any additional spatial requirements,” said Roger McGreal, co-founder of SPENGA. SPENGA, whose workouts combine spin, strength and yoga, was challenged with finding a new solution for their strength pod after the former manufacturer stopped producing the version used widely across the franchise’s studios.  “While interviewing different companies, no one was offering a truly unique product that fit all of our needs. All of that changed when we were introduced to BeaverFit,” McGreal said. https://vimeo.com/897241087 McGreal reached out to a former connection in the fitness industry, Nick Vay – VP of commercial sales at BeaverFit – to see what the team could do.  “They had a challenge that required a custom solution,” said Vay. “Other vendors were trying to sell them what they already made off the shelf because they don’t really have the capacity to do what we do – which is, in a pretty quick amount of time, come up with basically a brand new product and produce it at scale.” After back-and-forth conversations about SPENGA’s requirements, the BeaverFit team invited McGreal and others to the BeaverFit headquarters in Reno, Nevada, to show them a prototype. From there, the teams worked together to finetune the product through several iterations to be exactly what SPENGA needed.  “BeaverFit carefully listened to all of our needs and designed a completely custom solution for SPENGA,” McGreal said. “The team was extremely professional, timely and offered great insight that led to the creation of a one-of-a-kind product that far exceeded our expectations.” Custom branding and design With SPENGA being a franchise model, branding and customization are top priority, McGreal noted. While working from the original strength pod concept, one of the first things BeaverFit did was incorporate custom colors and branding to bring the SPENGA brand aesthetic to life. BeaverFit also added a battle rope ring, a center anchor point for bands and ancillary work, an angled footplate for improved suspension training, and side hooks to pull accessories out of the way when not in use.  “These things sound simple, but they create better functionality and storage which makes a big difference in a small space,” Vay said. “Many times, facilities are stuck using a product that does not fulfill all of their needs and this negatively impacts the user experience,” McGreal added. “Being able to design a product custom to a facility’s needs offers competitive advantage.” The first BeaverFit Single Post units for SPENGA were installed at studios in Naples and Fort Myers, Florida, in August 2023. BeaverFit will continue to produce the units at scale to support the growing franchise and offer the solution to other brands needing similar functionality. The Single Post joins the new BeaverFit Functional Training line, solutions designed specifically to fit any training space while providing multiple training modalities. With customizable branding, colors, storage and functionality, this line enables maximum storage and exercise capability. “BeaverFit is extremely innovative in their approach, which allows facilities to deliver a superior and truly unique experience,” McGreal said.

BeaverFit chosen as exclusive manufacturer of Rumble bench and boxing rigs

RENO, Nev. – April, 12, 2022 – BeaverFit USA, a veteran owned and operated business, the leading manufacturer of outdoor fitness equipment, and the largest supplier of military human performance solutions in the world, has been contracted by Rumble, the popular boxing-inspired group workout concept owned by Xponential Fitness, to manufacture custom designed benches and boxing rigs for new Rumble franchise locations. The newly designed Rumble bench and boxing rigs, which are already in use at recently opened Rumble studios in Anchorage, Alaska and Henderson, Nev., were designed, prototyped, and manufactured in a matter of months following close collaboration between BeaverFit product design, engineering, and fabrication specialists working with Rumble leadership. “As we scale the Rumble brand to new locations it was critically important for us to have the right equipment,” said Shaun Grove, president, Rumble. “Not only did we want to capture the look and feel of the Rumble brand in this equipment, but we wanted to make sure that for our franchise partners making an investment that this equipment will last for years to come, and to ensure our members have the highest quality and safest equipment every time they step into a Rumble studio.” The new bench was created for the strength portion of Rumble’s 45-minute classes, providing a cushioned bench top, storage slots integrated into the middle for five pairs of dumbbells, and hooks on the end to hold Rumble’s weighted knuckles. A hollow opening also provides an area for participants to store their boxing gloves between Rumble rounds. Beaverfit worked with Rumble to create four different custom rigs in order to provide Rumble and its franchisees increased flexibility from a space and functionality perspective to make the leasing and facility design as streamlined as possible. “Designing the Rumble bench and boxing rigs was really a total team effort from start to finish,” said Justin Smith, COO, BeaverFit, North America. “Our design and engineering teams worked closely with the Rumble team to ensure the design met their functional requirements as well as brand aesthetic, while our in-house manufacturing and 100% domestic supply chain allowed us to quickly prototype, make updates, and ultimately begin producing hundreds of units for new Rumble locations. This opportunity is one of many we’re excited to support as we continue to see the aggressive growth in our commercial business from both a custom manufacturing and outdoor fitness perspective.” “This has been one of the best experiences I’ve ever had around product procurement in terms of how smooth and how fast it went,” said Pete Rigs, EVP of construction and procurement, Xponential Fitness. “We went from discussing an idea over lunch, to having a napkin sketch, a computer rendering, and a finished product in less than three months. During a time when so many equipment manufacturers are struggling with their supply chain, the BeaverFit team and their domestic manufacturing capabilities really allowed us to deliver the equipment needed to help our newest franchisees open their locations on time.” To learn more about BeaverFit commercial equipment and custom manufacturing capabilities, visit beaverfitusa.com.
