Fit Four was created on tough times, hard work and humble roots. Our legendary four-finger design was conceived after a run of unfortunate events that made Fit Four’s founder reach rock bottom physically, mentally and financially. This tragic series of events became the birth of the famous four-finger workout glove.
At 28, Fit Four’s founder, Jonny Robbins, found himself feeling pretty low. After the housing market collapsed in 2010 Jonny had to close the doors on a cabinet company he owned. Shutting down his company was the tip of the iceberg. Next he found himself divorced, broke and living back in his parents basement, not to mention Jonny was physically in the worse shape he had ever been. Growing up in a very sports driven and competitive family, losing was not the norm. This bitter taste of defeat was hard to swallow. Jonny Robbins was a phoenix in need of a rebirth and thanks to a good friend, Cross Fitness Training became his catalyst back to victory.
Having been born again in the waters of fitness, his addiction to high-energy activities was met with the challenge of extreme personal fitness. He found the support from his local box empowering. He was hooked—except for one major problem. His hands were trashed!
Inconvenient taping and bulky gloves weren’t fitting the bill, so Jonny Robbins took matters into his own hands. Pun intended. With tenacity, a bucket of sweat and a little help from his mom and her trusty sewing machine, our famous four-fingered glove was born. Simple, minimalist, form fitting and most importantly, effective!
Enter Fit Four. From that point on, Jonny Robbins exhausted every ounce of time and literally every last resource—down to the last dime in his pocket—to turn our patented, one of-a-kind gloves, from concept to reality.
Today, Fit Four is the official glove of Spartan Race and Fit Four products are purchased throughout the world by fitness and OCR athletes. Fit Four crafts innovative, purpose-specific hand protection for all types of sports enthusiasts and hardcore athletes alike.
Moral of the story? Fit Four is passionate! Passionate about fitness. Passionate about life. Passionate about providing everyone from the OCR weekend warrior to the elite Cross Training athlete, a way to kick some serious trash without chewing up their hands.
