ABOUT History Gymstick International was founded by two sport professionals, Risto Kasurinen and Miika Vesalainen in 2003. Since then the company has grown and distributes to over 45 countries around the world. Starting as athletes and sport instructors in Sports Institute of Finland, Risto and Miika have always been passionate in creating programs and equipment to assist to people to move more. After his athletic career Miika worked as personal trainer and physical coach in many different sports. He also taught the initial personl training course as well as training new sports coaches at the Sport Institute of Finland. Risto’s first initative was his involvement with Nordic Walking and was part of a team that developed Nordic Walking into a world wide fitness phenomena, which now has over 20 million participants. Miika and Risto developed the Gymstick concept, which originally started with the Gymstick Original (LINK TO ORIGINAL PRODUCT), a fibreglass stick with two rubber tubings with foot straps at each end. Realising that this was going to be a huge success, the company started to grow by adding more innovative fitness products that have truly helped people to achieve their fitness and personal goals. Today Today Gymstick’s wide product range is sold in six continents, in over 45 countries and through thousands of resellers. In addition, we represent a number of high quality international brands in our domestic market in Finland. Gymstick is a leading fitness brand in Finland.
