Our Story

YAKKA STRENGTH was created by two brothers from Durham, England. As the 2020 coronavirus pandemic hit and gyms began to close, we built a garage gym. Being fitness and weightlifting enthusiasts, we carried out extensive research on equipment and what the UK market had to offer. We then found an avenue that we could explore. That was providing high quality equipment that can withstand the British climate and the constant repetitions of a commercial gym. So as brothers, we decided to create YAKKA STRENGTH. When looking to buy products, there are so many different options. We aim to make that decision simple by having a product portfolio to cater to everyone’s budget without sacrificing quality. 

Unlike most businesses, our main objective is not to maximise our profit margins. We understand the value that exercising has on people’s lives and we want to make that as accessible as possible to everyone. We are a small business that holds our principles at heart. TEAM YAKKA wants to bring the gym to you by providing high quality commercial grade equipment to your home at an unbeatable price.


Behind the Name

YAKKA STRENGTH was established in a former coal mining village in County Durham. People who used to work down the mine were given the nickname ‘Pit Yakka’. Decades on, this slang term is still used and is the ultimate calling of strength.


Our Mission

We want to make your decision for fitness equipment easy!

We have been in that dilemma of what fitness equipment to buy, what brand? What style? What model? The options are endless and that’s we created YAKKA STRENGTH. We have done the research so you don’t have to. Our products are engineered to withstand the British environment and tested for the constant repetitions of a commercial CrossFit gym. Whatever YS products you decide on, be rest assured that they are the best. Don’t just take our word for it. Try them for yourself…


Our Goals

  1. Have the best customer service. 
  2. Supply nothing that we wouldn't use ourselves.
  3. Create a Yakka Strength universe that is the go to place for everything fitness.

If we achieve our goals we will be the best brand in the industry. We believe that the sky is the limit and with continuous hard diligent work we will transform a business idea that began in a garage into something special. We can't wait for you to join us on our journey. 



Team Yakka has a passion for the fitness industry and wants to become the market leader. If you have any products that you want to see in the future, any suggestions that will make the brand stronger or you want to join the team, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
