Tamara & Brian Smith

Brian and Tamara Smith bought Gibson Gymnastics in 2005 from another husband and wife team, Gary and Holly Gibson. The Gibsons had started their business out of their garage in Littleton, Colorado over 35 years ago, growing it to become one of the most successful gymnastics and ballet equipment manufacturers in the country. The Smiths were excited about acquiring an athletic company because they believed so deeply in the positive impact that sports can have on people's lives.

Brian and Tamara met working in the political arena in the 90's in Washington DC and came out to Colorado on a ski vacation. They fell in love with Denver because of its mix of entrepreneurial spirit and athletic living and decided to call Colorado their home. Brian quickly undertook ownership of several franchises and Tamara went into the financial industry. It wasn't long before their family grew and they now are proud parents of three boys.

Within Gibson, Tamara heads up finance and marketing and Brian focuses on production, product development and operations. They make a great team whose tireless spirt has created a company which is focused on producing innovative, quality products and are a proud US manufacturer and employer. Under their direction the company has also grown to include the Rage Fitness Division; a functional fitness line.
