The advanced tendering platform for gym operators Daniel Jones is the brains behind Orbit4, the world’s first digital ecosystem to manage and facilitate the entire commercial fitness product cycle. We caught up with him at Orbit4 HQ in Cheshire What is Orbit4? Orbit4 is the umbrella brand for our fitness industry platforms: FitnessCompared, FitnessFinance, WeServiceGymEquipment and WeBuyGymEquipment. The company has qualified and aggregated the industry’s best partners so that gym operators have access to the wider market. We’re providing automatic pricing following the bidding process when gym operators are looking to purchase and finance gym equipment, tender for service contracts and dispose of or resell unwanted assets. We’ve even given our industry its own fitness equipment comparison site!
These are really exciting times for our group, which recently received £350,000 of growth funding to help us ramp up services for our customers Daniel Jones, CEO, Orbit4 76

Why are gym operators and your partners so excited about this platform? Orbit4 is an amazing present to the industry and a genuine win-win for any company involved in the fitness industry. It allows gym operators to go digital when it comes to purchasing, financing, maintaining and disposing of fitness equipment. Our qualified, aggregated partners are placed into our bidding platforms to provide the perfect ecosystem to tender at relevant times during the asset cycle. Spreading the net across the whole industry in a few clicks of your mouse enables you to quickly and impartially test the market.
What’s the next big thing? Gym operators are particularly excited about our plans to combine all the businesses on one dashboard called Orbit4 Premium. With the inception of WeBuyGymEquipment in 2015, FitnessCompared in 2018 and now FitnessFinance and WeServiceGymEquipment, it is the next logical step. Orbit4 Premium is currently in its final build phase so we’re looking forward to making further announcements in the forthcoming weeks. These are really exciting times for our group, which recently received £350,000 of growth funding to help us ramp up services for our customers.
