Founded by the late Dr. Walter Marcyan, Marcy home gym equipment has always had a reputation as being one of the top name brands in the industry.
Starting with his gyms, “House of Health”, a string of gyms that were located in Los Angeles, Dr. Marcy soon began manufacturing basic fitness equipment back in 1946 making Marcy one of the oldest gym manufacturers around.
Terry Todd, a fitness historian and kinesiology professor at the University of Texas at Austin indicated that Marcyan’s equipment “played a huge role in making gyms a little more friendly to the average man or woman who wanted to train.”
Jack Lalanne described him as “a very modest man with big talents and he made major contributions to weightlifting and physical fitness.”
Dr. Marcyan continued to innovate fitness machines and in the 1970s, his company Marcy Fitness Products became the leading manufacturer of gym equipment.
Even with his passing in 2007, Marcy Fitness continues with his vision and manufactures quality home gym equipment.
