What we do

We make the best barbells on the planet. When you pick one of them up, you can feel the difference. We've been at it for over 40 years, and every decision made along the way has been in the pursuit of excellence.

We have set the standard in barbell technology and quality. Our innovations have been imitated by the biggest names in the industry, but hey, that's the highest form of flattery, right?

We originate, innovate and manufacture strength, that's what we do.


our story- More than barbells

American Barbell began building Gym Equipment in 1978 and our levels of manufacturing and quality have been apparent since day one. Our roots began an Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) for the biggest names in the global fitness industry. Over the last 40 years, we have blazed a trail, creating the most notable innovations and industry firsts. Our list of accomplishments range from creating the first Hard Chrome Olympic Barbell (1998), the first Urethane Bumper Plate (2012), The first Cerakote Olympic Barbell (2016), high-strength and lightweight aluminum cable attachments, custom molded urethane weights and our industry leading, Series-1 Urethane dumbbell with patented Spline technology, to name a few.

The depths of our experience and precision engineering are felt in the quality of our products, and it's because of this, we are the exclusive provider to the biggest commercial gym chains in the industry. Our equipment can be found in Gold's Gym, Orangetheory, Planet Fitness, Universities, Military bases and numerous strength and conditioning facilities domestically and world wide. We are confident that you've seen and felt our quality before.

No one thought we'd make it this far, and we're not stopping.

Join us, train with us and let's get strong.
