The Sudbury-based company’s 5,000 square-foot storefront is open to the public and carries products from many leading manufacturers of quality exercise equipment featuring the most advanced fitness technology.
The company prides itself on offering a high level of expert, personalized service, with a live representative able to answer sales questions and a dedicated service department of knowledgeable staff and technicians.
AKFIT’s founder Karen Hastie is a pioneer in the fitness industry, someone who envisioned a positive growth rate in the sector. By merging her passions for fitness and business, Hastie opened AKFIT in 1989, at a time when the industry was still in its infancy.
Since then, AKFIT has become the number one supplier of exercise equipment in Northern Ontario. The company’s success comes from Hastie’s ability to stay on top of market trends and the latest technology, all the while maintaining a customer and service-focused approach.
Technology is advancing at a rapid pace and Hastie ensures she is up to date with developments in the fitness industry, offering clients a selection of fitness equipment with the latest software.
AKFIT delivers and installs fitness equipment across the region, including homes, universities, colleges, physio centres and workplaces. It also offers maintenance plans to improve equipment’s performance, safety and reliability.
Not sure which piece of equipment meets your fitness needs?
Hastie goes by the motto try before you buy. “We have options– just because one product works for one person, doesn’t necessarily mean it will work for you,” she said.
She encourages people to visit the store and talk to an in-store expert. Because, sometimes starting a fitness program and learning how to use a new piece of fitness equipment can be a little daunting. That’s why AKFIT offers training workshops and step-by-step instructions and guidelines so that the owner can perform regular equipment maintenance. The store also has a fully stocked parts department with a full selection of manufacturer and generic replacement parts.
