Before there is a company, there is an idea. Respond Fitness is a personal health and online retailer accessories brand that encompasses the never ending pursuit of physical fitness. Based in the United States, we exist to create the tools that help people unlock their full incredible potential and put their ideas into action. Created in 2019 and supported by millions of highly engaged social media followers and customers. This growth comes from a devotion to innovative, and an ever-expanding social presence, and above all, a commitment to the Respond Fitness vision:

Through all the hardship and struggle, and the moments when you feel at your lowest or that you can't go on, we want to inspire you to keep pushing forward and to continue to do whatever it takes, to Leave Your Mark.

Everyone has a diverse path to personal health, and we're here to help you find yours. We believe in the power of technology, know-how, science, human empathy, and well-being to make the journey simpler. Through individual’s health fitness, we have the power to change lives. To start, a healthy, balanced diet, and regular exercise are necessary for weight loss, maintenance, muscle building, or toning. Let us help take care of you. If it doesn’t challenge you, it can’t change you! Be all that you imagined you could be. Just Respond.


Passion. Keep seeking, never settle. Having the courage to look and leap is the way we grow. It is at the heart of our company. We are continuously moving forward, innovating, and improving. We are a family of like-minded individuals working to bring our respective visions to life.

Integrity. We are honest, consistently open, ethical, and genuine. People trust us to adhere to our word. We encourage our associates to adopt and adapt good ideas from others to initiate creative and entrepreneurial ways of serving our customers and improving the business. Because asking “what if?” pushes us to the next level as people and as a company.

Progression. Our products exist at the intersection of engineering and art. We strive to create economic opportunities for those who have been denied them and to advance new models of economic justice that are sustainable and replicable.

Empowered. Make it happen. True empowerment is the result of taking responsibility. Include, value and trust each other. This means giving yourself permission to see it, say it and do it, and owning the outcomes. We are smart alone but together we are genius. 

Vision. In everything we do, be true to our values, company vision, and respectful of others. Push for progress, not perfection. There are very few overnight successes. Greatness is borne of many little victories (and failures). We are here to bring fitness concepts to life. We must deliver our very best in all we do, holding ourselves accountable for results. To be the best Fitness Company in the World.
