The company was established in 1998, but the story of Escape Fitness began decades earlier with engineer Richard Januszek and Matthew, his eldest son. Inspired by Arnold Schwarzenegger and the strong sense of community in the gym, Matthew’s passion for bodybuilding and fitness grew to complement Richard’s inventive business mind. Approaching the turn of the millennium, fitness had changed a lot over 30 years. From beginnings as suppliers of great-looking equipment, Escape has evolved to return gyms to a place where members never struggle to find support, a challenge or motivation.
