Total Gym was founded by Tom Campanaro almost 40 years ago, making the company that first revolutionized functional body weight training older than its current President. But there’s no better person suited to take Total Gym into the next generation than Jesse Campanaro.
Making fitness a family affair has been the norm in the Campanaro household. As a kid, Jesse began helping to assemble units in their own garage, then graduated to selling units and now he’s taken the reigns and is leading the company he grew up with into the future.
Recently, Jesse spoke withÂ Motionsoft’sÂ Hossein Noshirvani & Leigh Kessler for their weekly podcast, “Gym Class: Heroes of Fitness,” which featuresÂ unscripted interviews with the pioneers and innovators behind the best-known names in the fitness world.
Hear what Jesse had to say about growing up with the iconic fitness brand, where he see’s the fitness industry heading and how he plans to take Total Gym along for the ride.
