About Us

When James P. Sargen created the company in 2002, he based the name “TriActive” on the three benefits of fitness: a healthy mind, body, and spirit. Sargen envisioned outdoor exercise equipment designed for all age groups and levels of fitness: “I wanted to create a company that empowered all individuals to enjoy exercising outdoors. My vision was to build outdoor fitness equipment that could be installed in parks, community areas, schools, college campuses, fitness zones, and outdoor gyms for everyone to use.”

Today, TriActive America’s success embodies the founder’s original goals and our products exist in almost every state in the nation, as well as several international locations. 

“TriActive America’s expert team specializes in functional designs that maximize the workout potential as well as provide ease of use and variety,” says Sargen. Among the company’s staff and consultants are experts in kinesiology, bio-mechanics, ergonomics, obesity, physical well-being, and athletic performance. “In contrast to other companies, our staff of engineers has designed each piece to fit the North American stature.”

In addition, TriActive America seeks to combat the obesity epidemic through the services and products that the company offers. “It’s more than just selling equipment,” the Founder reflects. “It’s fulfilling a mission to fight the obesity epidemic. Communities taking responsibilities for fighting the obesity epidemic through providing free outdoor gyms in public areas are creating opportunities for everyone in the nation to improve their health and well-being via exercise!”

At TriActive America, every employee wants to help your community step up to a new level of well-being. Through TriActive outdoor gyms, Fitness Zones™, and fitness trails, we can achieve that goal together. “We’re a for-profit company that operates like a non-profit organization,” says TriActive America’s CEO James Sargen. “We’ve consciously made a decision to help every individual enjoy a healthier lifestyle through the power of exercise!”
