It’s quite simple. We believe everyone should be able to train how they want, where they want, and when they want. Our mission is to provide quality, durable, innovative functional fitness products so you can train on your terms.
Training is more than getting fit and looking good. It’s a daily opportunity to connect with your goals and make progress.
Functional fitness and bodyweight training is a personal journey. Part strength, part meditation, it offers an escape from daily life to work on yourself without distractions.
Our products are just the beginning. We are proud to support athletes and events, offer workshops and accredited training courses, and run a lively Facebook community.
We want to be part of a world where people move their bodies, strengthen their weaknesses, and fulfil their potential.

Our founder Rich Hawkins had been struggling with shoulder injuries, and decided to work on bodyweight strength. He bought a set of parallettes – but was shocked by the quality. He sent them back, but couldn’t find anything better. That night, he decided to design quality, fit-for-purpose parallettes that could be manufactured at a reasonable price. Gravity Fitness was born.
We worked with UK calisthenics athletes to develop parallettes that were exactly what athletes need. The first batch sold out in two weeks – we were onto something! We still work closely with athletes across the UK and Europe to design and develop high quality functional fitness equipment.
In 2016 we joint hosted the UK WSWCF Championships and sponsored the World Championships. This was a pivotal moment for calisthenics in the UK. Gravity Fitness build lasting relationships with athletes – many of whom are now part of the Gravity family.
We sponsored the WCO Battle of the Bars in Amsterdam, part of the Amsterdam Fit Expo. By now, we were supplying Gravity Fitness equipment to over 30 European countries.
In 2017, we turned our focus to industry education. We teamed up with Bodyweight Gurus to offer calisthenics workshops and REPS-accredited instructor training courses across the UK. We still run these sources, and we’re really proud to be at the forefront of education in this part of the industry.
When we launched our range of resistance bands (6 sizes with varying levels of resistance), they sold out straight away and have been a best-seller ever since.
Parallettes have always been our flagship product. Over Christmas 2017 we sent out a huge customer survey and added rubber feet to all our parallette products, making Europe’s most popular parallettes even better.
That 2017 customer survey asked which new products people would like. As a result, we introduced wooden gymnastics rings to the range.
Our next big launch was weighted vests, and they’ve been a best-seller ever since. Our weighted vests can be used for running, bodyweight, and calisthenics work.
Our famous Portable Pull Up Rack got a makeover in 2019, with wider feet to create an even more stable product.
We gave our Parallettes a glow-up the following year. They got a complete redesign to make them stronger, more stable, with zero wobble.
Our Facebook Group is a free resource run by our coaches, offering training tips, specialist tutorials, and daily workout ideas. It’s set to be the biggest and best online resource for calisthenics and body weight training.
We relaunched our apparel range in 2020, switching to eco-friendly bamboo fabric for our training tees and launching our slouchy Gravity hoodies.
It all systems go after Covid19 and lockdown! We were delighted to launch 7 new products: steel maces, kettlebells, jump ropes, sandbags, battle ropes, grip trainers and foldable mat.
The pace didn’t let up in 2022. Our focus was on bringing unconventional training tools to the market, including Indian clubs, sledge hammers, our assisted rings system dip belt, wrist wraps, anti-sweat tape and ankle weights. We also launched our distinctive Thor Hammer.
