The birth of BodyFly 

U.S. Navy Petty Officer 2nd Class Kareem Smith was serving onboard the hospital ship USNS Mercy performing a humanitarian mission off the coast of Vietnam. Smith wanted to create a compact cable machine that would allow users to achieve a full body workout that could be used at home, a gym or -- in his case -- on the flight deck. 

Excited about the idea, Smith called friend and former military member Drei Carnes to share his idea. Carnes urged him to write down all the details and they would explore the concept when he returned to San Diego. Smith and Carnes did their homework and conducted a vast amount of research. 

They discovered there were no other products on the market that were similar in features and functions to what they were envisioning. The two ran the idea by three friends they met at Shock Fitness who were all fitness enthusiasts and played football together at Fresno State to gauge their interest. San Diego Chargers running back Ryan Mathews, San Diego Chargers wide receiver Seyi Ajirotutu and Bobby Lepori were all on board. 

The five individuals investigated the idea more in-depth and determined that they could create a product that was affordable, portable, effective and could be used by various individuals from military members and professional athletes to the average professional who just wanted to complete a workout without having to go to the gym. 

In October 2012, the team contacted San Diego-based product developer Leardon Solutions to begin working on the project and BodyFly Fitness was created.

FROM IDEA TO OUR FIRST PROTOTYPE

Co-founder Drei Carnes talks briefly about the original prototype.

 Linkage and Spring

 This is the stage of conception I like to call Lightbulb! This is where we realized we can make this work and this is the technology that we own.

 Encasing with roller bearing: Roller bearings guide wire smoothly in all directions. Gives flexibility to exercise from front, side or back.

WE ARE SERIOUS.. BODYFLY works out ANYWHERE
