The first thing that comes to mind when you hear the name Gronkowski is the New England Patriots and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. After all, Rob Gronkowski spent over 10 seasons playing legendary quarterback Tom Brady. But the Patriots and the Bucs aren’t all that the Gronkowski name is known for. The fame, success, and image that the Gronkowski][los have can all be attributed to a fitness company called G&G Fitness.
The Business Over the Years
G&G Fitness was built from the ground up by the Gronkowski patriarch, Gordon, and his brother, Glenn. The company was founded in 1990 with the goal of supplying premium quality fitness equipment to fitness enthusiasts and commercial gyms all over the nation. Since then, G&G Fitness has evolved into one of the premier sources of home fitness solutions in the United States. Just a few short years later, in 1997, G&G Fitness expanded locations, going out into Rochester and Syracuse, NY. By this time, we’d already evolved into one of the most successful fitness retailers in the country.
The success and fame didn’t stop there either, as the early 2000s saw a lot of growth for G&G Fitness. In 2000, we expanded to Pittsburgh, PA. Then, in 2004, we expanded into North East Ohio, including Cleveland and Akron. Two years later, in 2006, we further expanded in Southern Ohio by purchasing a store chain, called “The Fitness Store”, making G&G Fitness and our sister company (The Fitness Store) a 15-store chain with more than 80 employees. This made us the largest and most experienced fitness equipment dealer with a hand in every fitness niche. As recently as 2021, G&G Fitness added a retail store in Indianapolis, Indiana, where a fitness equipment service department was added in 2022.

Meet the Family
G&G Fitness would be nowhere without family. Family is what started our business and family is what keeps our business going strong as “America’s First Family of Jocks”. We’ve mentioned Gordon and Glenn, the original Gronkowski brothers and founders of G&G Fitness. They've been and have continued to be instrumental in the success and fame that G&G Fitness has garnered, but let’s meet the second generation of Gronkowski brothers that have been the driving force behind the business.
The oldest Gronkowski brother, born in 1983, played in minor league baseball. He’s the only Gronkowski brother to not play professional football. He joined the G&G team a few years ago and now runs the commercial segment in Boston, New Hampshire, Maine, and Vermont. His father and brothers have dubbed him the most socially adept of the bunch and has therefore been deemed a skilled salesman within the family.
Born in 1985, Dan is the second-oldest son. He, like some of his brothers, played football in college. He was recruited as a quarterback but later switched to tight end. He earned a degree in marketing as well as an MBA. He was even in the process of being nominated for a Rhodes Scholarship but decided to pursue a professional football career instead. He played in the NFL from 2009 to 2013. After his NFL career, he came to work for G&G Fitness. During his time with G&G, he orchestrated two new business segments: the development of its own products and an e-commerce operation.
Born in 1986, Chris Gronkowski is a busy man. After his career in the NFL, he moved to Texas with his wife, Brittany, in 2013 to focus on her engraving business called Everything Decorated. He would focus on business development while she would handle the day-to-day necessities. Since then, he launched his company, Ice Shaker, which offers insulated, spill-proof, stainless-steel cups. Ice Shaker was even featured on Shark Tank and garnered huge success from the airing. Along with his brothers, Chris co-owns three businesses: InSite Media Services, Gronk Bus, and Gronk Nation.
Born in 1989, Rob is probably the most well-known of his brothers. He notably played for both the New England Patriots and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. What some may not know about Rob is that he earned A’s as a high school student and had a 3.0 GPA at the University of Arizona. After his college career, he jumped straight into the NFL where he built his brand. He is known as a force to be reckoned with off the field, too, helping with the marketing and brand management of Gronk Fitness and G&G Fitness. While his focus is now on his professional sports career, he does want to stay involved in the fitness world, as the two are seamlessly woven together and interconnected.
Born in 1993, Glenn is the youngest of the Gronkowski brothers. Glenn has had an illustrious stint as a professional football player with the Buffalo Bills and the New England Patriots, alongside his brother. Since then, he's been making some noise outside of the gridiron, just like his brothers have. He graduated from Kansas State University with two bachelor’s degrees: one in marketing and the other in management. He graduated with a 3.81 grade point average as well. He works alongside his brothers with their shared business and interests in G&G Fitness.
Without knowing the history of the Gronkowski family, it sure can be easy to dismiss the family as a bunch of jocks that just like to have fun. While that might be true, the family works just as hard in making sure that their businesses and G&G Fitness are the best they can possibly be. Clients always come first, and they take fitness and health as seriously as possible.
The G&G Fitness Mission
As a business, G&G Fitness is all about providing the best quality fitness equipment that’s available on the market. This is the most basic version of the mission that G&G Fitness has set out to complete and continues to work toward. At its core, however, G&G Fitness is about building healthy lifestyles, promoting competition, and encouraging people to be the best possible versions of themselves.
All throughout their lives, the Gronkowskis have lived by the “work hard, play hard” mentality. Though the family does fit the description of "a bunch of jocks," they have built their lives around success with healthy competition and knowing how to relax after a hard day’s work. This is exactly the mentality that we want to give our clients: a way to build up their success in fitness and share in the Gronkowski mentality. While our items may just be pieces of fitness equipment at the end of the day to some people, they are much more than that to us. In the end, they're pieces of a bigger puzzle that’s all about contributing to your fitness journey and improving your lifestyle.
