Andrew Page has worked as a strength and conditioning coach for athletes and NBA players in New York City since 2007. Seeking a barbell that athletes and people from all experiences could lift, he built an improvement on the 100-year-old barbell that scaled to everyone who wanted to lift.
The Axle Workout mission is to bring affordable strength training to people everywhere. Make it affordable, accessible, adaptable. We’re taking barbells to the next level.
Working with NBA players and elite athletes in NYC, Andrew Page realized that the 7-foot, 45lb Olympic Bar struggled as a functional tool for most people. String together a couple of BMX bike wheels, a cable crossbar, and some 2” ends and you have what is, effectively, an ultralight Olympic Barbell that anyone can lift. Such was the first version of what we now call The Axle. It’s a tool that lets everyone of any level experience the benefits of lifting.
Every detail from the length to the grip, to the air-filled smooth-rolling tires, is designed to give the user an empowering training
experience. And it fits in a bag. With lifting wherever you go, strength and performance have never been easier.
Axle. Just add work.
