About

Hello!

I’m Florian. I live in Cologne and came up with the idea of integrated fitness furniture a few years ago – when a slice of lime came to people’s minds when thinking of Corona.

As a graduate in sports science (German Sports University Cologne) and with about ten years of experience in the fitness industry, I have met quite a few sporty people. Despite gym or club membership, many of them also train at home. So do I. But pure bodyweight exercises are rather monotonous, not to say boring, in the long run.

So I wanted more variety, but that requires space and hardware. But space is usually at a premium, and the more equipment you accumulate at home, the more it gets in the way of your living space. It’s not uncommon for expensive training equipment to end up in the basement or garage after a while.

My vision: A space-saving, functional and ready-to-use training station that integrates inconspicuously and elegantly into the living area.

Hello!

I’m Andreas, Co-Founder at Gymfurn, born and after 15 years abroad now back in Aachen, Germany.

From 2008-2018, I worked as a consultant (McKinsey) and manager (Amazon). I couldn’t really integrate fitness into my daily schedule. The gym was too far away and felt like too much effort, I didn’t have the time for a sports club and I didn’t want random fitness equipment lying around in our bedroom or living room. In the various hotels I stayed in, the gyms were rather bad, overcrowded or closed. In short: I didn’t have a sustainable fitness concept.
In 2008 I weighed 88 kg (at 1.93 m) and was well-trained and fit. From 2011 onwards it was always between 100 and 110 kg.

The Gymfurn Epeius permanently solves my problems in one fell swoop. It takes me 5 seconds from the couch to the gym and 5 seconds back. With this minimal set-up time, there are no more excuses – even for people who like to work 14-hour days. A workout of 10-15 minutes a day (plus 2 times 5 seconds) can be accommodated by anyone – including you!

In a team with fitness equipment designers and carpenters, our goal was to develop a comfortable “training furniture” that could be used without a lot of set-up time and that would allow a wide range of exercises. Above all, however, the training station was to be unobtrusive and space-saving and not have the appearance of typical fitness equipment. Like clothing, furniture is a matter of taste.

So we created a solution that had never been seen before: a multifunctional training station in a timeless furniture design – freely according to the motto: Fitness meets Furniture. The result is the Gymfurn Epeius Fitness Cabinet.

Discover the new dimension of Homegym!

In times of home office, home gym is only logical. Even though we will soon be returning to a new “normal,” time is still the most precious commodity. A workout in the gym doesn’t always fit into the evening. However, a short workout session at home is always in, and any 15-minute workout is better than no workout at all.

With a functional home gym like the Gymfurn Epeius Fitness Cabinet, which integrates perfectly into your personal living space, you create the basis for an active and healthy lifestyle in the long term.
