About us

Meet the team

Gungnir consists of personal trainers with a combined experience of 10 years, engineers, and athletes. We are determined to deliver products that exude both simplicity and quality, thus giving the best workout experience possible.

Our vision

A new standard

Gungnir aims to become the new standard solution for securing weight plates worldwide. We started in Oslo, Norway, as an idea for a better solution to a problem well known to many who use weightlifting equipment on a regular basis. We started working on a solution in 2018, and our determination to make our vision a reality has grown ever since.

The spear of Odin

Norse roots

“Gungnir” (pronounced “GUNG-neer”) originates from Norse mythology, and is the name of the spear that belongs to the god Odin. As you can expect for the weapon of a god, Gungnir is no ordinary spear –  much like our bars. We take pride in referencing a bit of history, while creating products that stand out among their peers.

Our green way

Sustainable longevity

In Gungnir, we strive to create durable, high quality products. When we build our equipment to last, we contribute to less waste, less transport and quite simply a different mentality towards waste. When you often hear “Buy two, get three”, we say “buy one, and get three times the lifespan”. For that reason, we make products that require little maintenance, and we encourage our customers to take care of them throughout their lifetime. Care and respect for our surroundings and the things we use is key to minimize the impact we make on our home planet.
This is the way.
