Hello all!

After going back and forth with ideas for the past few years I have finally decided to execute on one.

I have an idea for a new fitness product. I have been researching products and the market for a while now and I have a design that I have drawn up that I would like to have someone physically create.

Can anyone help point me in the direction of where I must go now to actually get the product created and then manufactured? I have been emailing suppliers on alibaba to create the product for me and that has been hit or miss. Should I keep emailing suppliers on here, or is there a different route I should go?

Thank you in advance!

Hey!

Well, it depends on many things. Is it a totally new product that no one is offering right now? What are the materials, budget, how complicated is the product?
If you are from US, then probably you have some local manufacturers too.. It's more expensive than chinese, but I believe it would be faster and easier to communicate with locals.

Fitness is hot .... Many are looking for fitness routines that don't slot nicely into the new work from home working environment. Scalability will be your biggest challenge. Lots of luck.

Thanks for the response. It's a totally new product in a sense that no one has it. I've found a similar product and found a way to improve and enhance it. Materials would be plastic and metal, and budget I don't know.

In terms of a US manufactures for this specific type of product, where would be the best place to look for one?
