King Smith Fitness, the creator of the WalkingPad® and an intelligent home fitness equipment pioneer, launches in the United States with offices in Dallas, Texas, and a vision to help US consumers fall more easily in love with fitness and healthy living. The company also announced that its WalkingPad® brand will now be carried at Lowe’s and Walmart, making King Smith Fitness equipment available to consumers at two of the largest retailers in the US.
King-Smith Fitness has seen tremendous growth since its founding in 2015, expanding to more than 70 countries and developing a range of fitness devices that are helping people live happier and healthier lives. Momentum in the US was particularly strong in 2021 with sales reaching over $10M, making the US office a natural next step for the company’s global expansion. The new Dallas office will allow the company to better serve a fast-growing clientele, hire US talent, and help reduce supply chain issues.
According to Fortune Insights, the U.S. home fitness equipment market is projected to grow from USD 4.81 billion in 2021 to USD 7.80 billion in 2029 at a CAGR of 7.2%. A confluence of trends including rising obesity prevalence and growing awareness regarding the health benefits of using such equipment is mainly driving demand in the US.
“As a fitness proponent and a descendent of blacksmiths, I launched King Smith Fitness with the vision to produce smart, well-designed, and functional home exercise equipment accessible to everyone,” said Albert Jing, founder, and CEO. “With more people leading sedentary lives, our WalkingPad products – designed to help users to easily work out at home – have been well-received in the US. Opening our Dallas office is the first step toward enhancing our ability to better serve our North American customers and to meet growing demand.”
Select WalkingPad® products can now be purchased at Lowes.com and Walmart.com. The initial WalkingPad collection at both retailers includes King Smith Fitness’ unique “walking machines” and treadmills, as well as accessories.
WalkingPad X21 was named one of the top inventions of 2022 by TIME Magazine. WalkingPads feature innovative fold designs, multi-sensors, and auto-speed control technology. When folded, most WalkingPads occupy just under 5.4 sq. ft., allowing them to fit into any home or workspace. Users can choose from more than ten models depending on their speed, activity, and load preferences. WalkingPad C2 is also available in five contemporary colors– white, black, yellow, blue, and red – to complement any style preferences.
