The Axle Story
Axle CEO and co-founder Andrew Page originally conceived the idea for The Axle based on his work as a strength coach for NBA players in New York City. By pairing Olympic Lifts with unique rolling exercises performed with the same barbell, Andrew recorded dramatic strength and metabolic gains across his clientele. Realizing that there was no existing solution for this type of movement pattern and exercise, he approached his friend and healthcare investor Anuj Patel (COO/co-founder) to help design and manufacture an ultralight yet strong barbell that was designed for all populations to lift and roll. The Axle was born.
