Primo Fitness announced that it has acquired Gym Pros (, an online retailer of new and used fitness equipment. The purchase will expand Primo Fitness’ reach further into the consumer market.

The acquisition of the company, along with its popular website, fits well with Primo Fitness’ strategy to offer fitness equipment to a larger customer base.

Leonardo Marangi, Primo Fitness CEO, said “We’ve done really well in domestic and international commercial sales. Gym Pros has a huge consumer presence in the US and that is the logical next step for our growth model.”

Gym Pros CEO Roy Crocker will now head up Primo Fitness’ sales team.

“I’m really excited,” says Roy, in his charismatic accent. “We’re going to do big things together and are now able to offer a better price point and turnaround time on all of our new and used commercial equipment for our clients.”

Leo and Roy are both native South Africans. They share a strong work ethic, with over 40 years’ industry experience between them and have remained friends through healthy competition over the years.

Gym Pros will continue operating under that name but is now specified “A Primo Fitness Company” on their website.
