Since October of 1990, Bandit Fitness Equiment has been the Tampa Bay's source for all the best quality gym equipment available, and our customer service has kept our customers coming back again and again.

We are not Amazon or Dick's. We're serious about this stuff.

Established Expertise

Bandit Fitness Equipment has been family owned and operated since it was incorporated in October of 1990, which means we've been your local fitness experts for over 30 years. We specialize in fitness equipment because it's an area that requires specialization – we're talking about more than just lifting weight. Everything comes down to your personal health and wellbeing, and we think everyone agrees: that's worthy of your time.


Since 1990 we've seen the fitness industry change over and over, from the rise of the as-seen-on-tv "miracles" to the injury farm gym "cults" and everything in between.

But our mission has always remained the same: provide people with equipment that stands the test of time in terms of durability, safety, and kinesiology, at excellent value, and with the absolute best service possible. Yeah, we could probably shorten that.

What Makes Us Different?


Our sales staff is here to help you find what works for you, plain and simple. Everybody's needs are different, and some customers know exactly what they want, while some customers aren't so sure how to get started or how to take their next step, but it doesn't matter to us. We're comfortable helping you out no matter where you're at, or, we're happy to leave you alone too. Just say the word, and we'll let you look around and make your own decisions!

Huge Selection

23,000 square feet is a lot of space, and it's full of new & preowned equipment to fit almost any need. The building is fairly well divided, so when you get here, you can go towards what you're looking for. The front showroom is mostly new equipment, with some exceptional preowned equipment featured as well. Through the hallway and in the back, we have a huge selection of high-quality preowned equipment (which you can see here.) We started to sell preowned equipment a number of years ago, and for many customers it's a great way to save some money and expand what they can accomplish within their budget.

We're Meatheads Too

Where we come from, "meathead" is a compliment, but admittedly, not every one of us fits into that category. Whatever term you want to use, we practice what we preach. Our staff actually cares about fitness, and many of us have personal training experience. The point is, we know what we're talking about.


For over 30 years, Bandit Fitness as designed, equipped, and installed thousands of home, garage, and commercial gyms in Tampa Bay.
