Our Story

As a former US navy/marine corps field medic and cancer survivor, I can say that the creation of the anchor gym was forged out of necessity and survival. After exiting the military, I became a licensed Physical Therapist and Fitness/Nutrition coach. Unfortunately, I couldn’t find a fitness system that could anchor all of the accessories I used for my patients, my clients, or even myself. Rather than settle for less, I decided to invent one!

Interview With The Fitness Inventors

In this interview Core Energy Fitness owner Shawn Finnegan explains why he created the Anchor Gym. He explains the flaws with workout equipment and how he couldn't find anything that would be sturdy  and functional enough to help you work out.

Shawn started the company in 2009 and receive a patent on his design for the Anchor Gym. His goal was to develop something you can use anywhere all while staying safe. He's created many designs you can use traveling, at home or even at a gym. Check out the original Anchor Gym in the interview when Shawn speaks about how it all started.

My Mission

After surviving stage 3 cancer, I made it my mission to stay strong and to help as many folks as possible get healthy and fit. That’s why I made the Anchor Gym so versatile and affordable. Now, I’m proud to say that our system can be found in gyms, universities, hospitals, military bases, professional training facilities, and homes all over the world!

I appreciate you making us a part of your health and fitness journey. I’ve told you my story… Now I want to hear yours. Please contact me anytime if you need help getting started, have a question, or just want to say hi.
