Reflex Fitness was given birth in 1990 through the creative forces of Craig Askam and Mike Adolphson. Mike Adolphson began doing sales in the commercial gym equipment field from 1980-1990. It was during that time that Mike started wielding his creative equipment talents as well as his innovative designs. Mike is also a gym owner since 1983.

All of Reflex’s equipment is built in house and Reflex takes great pride in making equipment that proudly stands as built in America. Each piece of equipment begins with the planning process and then the application of raw materials. The materials such as raw steel begins to take shape through saws, mills and drills as well as CNC machining, the trademark of precision machining. When welding is required, the use of mig and tig are applied. Once the unit is completed, it gets covered with some of the toughest powder coating commercially available. Reflex wants the finishes to withstand years of use. For the selectorized equipment, the use of six inch diameter deep grooved chrome pulleys along with solid steel machined weight stacks are used.
