WHO WE ARE
We're an average family from central Iowa. He's a pastor. She's a stay-at-home mom of five, soon-to-be seven, kiddos. We both love CrossFit. We're not great at it, but we love the philosophy and treasure the community.
Two years ago we ventured out on a journey unlike any we'd travelled before. Adoption. Her motherly instinct drew us to two precious orphans in the heart of Africa. His provider/protector instinct began counting the extreme financial costs associated with international adoption. A prayer for guidance and provision would lead him to a small factory located in the heart of Iowa with an idea to solve a problem: his pistol squats were junk.
Soon after, the idea for VersaLifts was born. We spent the first six months testing the market, refining the product, establishing a brand, and questioning whether or not we were in way over our heads.
Our first month in business we sold about 15 pairs. The second, 30. The third, 60. We recently reached our one-year anniversary as a company, and to-date we've sold thousands of pairs of lifts to customers in every state in the U.S. and 15 countries worldwide. Apparently you all stink at pistol squats, too.
Only God knows what the future holds for this modest endeavor, but we're having fun and are grateful to be able to make our small contribution to helping you meet your fitness goals.
With much love,
Shane and Michelle Rothlisberger
