Our Background

We are an Australian Special Forces veteran owned-and-operated business. Our ethos and core values are derived from our former military careers.

We are proud of the brand we have created and what it stands for.

Striving to inspire our customers, we exemplify the values of women and men who inspired us throughout our military service.

Kinta Fitness was born while serving overseas. In order to continue the arduous training regime that is required of special forces, with minimal equipment available, we set up a makeshift gym out of items we had at hand.

We returned to Australia wanting to build a brand that focused on quality and design. Our attention to detail across our whole range of products is meticulous. And just like in the military, our equipment is built to last.


Our mission is to provide the highest quality fitness equipment inspired by our military heritage, empowering individuals to reach their peak performance.

We bring the values and ethos that guided us through our service, focusing on quality and meticulous attention to detail, just as we learned in the military.

Our vision is to be the go-to brand for fitness equipment, known for our unwavering commitment to quality, design, and durability; all while honouring our Special Forces roots and the customers that have guided our brand journey so far.
