Tone, lose weight and develop muscle power with over 30 different exercise options. This unit comes with an instructional DVD to maximize its potential.

New from Tunturi Marketing

This year our focus is building and developing partnerships with our dealers. We feel the best way to achieve that is through our dedication to marketing support. For marketing support, we will be providing full line brochures, product specific fold outs, hang tags and banners.

New from Bremshey

Bremshey took North America by storm in 2005 so here they come again for 2006. More treadmills, more ellipticals, more bikes and brand new recumbent bikes! Bremshey will launch the Cardio Comfort line at this year’s show that contains two recumbent bikes. They will have versatile, easy-to-use consoles, step through frames, comfortable yet adjustable seats and a striking new design. With one manual and one programmable they are sure to fit your floor!

Bremshey Brand Names

Since Bremshey has added a number of sku’s to their line up, it was imperative that names be streamlined. It is quite simple, there are 5 categories: Ambition, Trail, Pacer, Control and Explorer. Within each of those categories is one treadmill (Treadline), upright bike (Cardio), recumbent bike (Cardio Comfort) and elliptical (Orbit).

New from Batavus

Everything! The Batavus line up will consist of 3 ellipticals, 3 upright bikes, 2 recumbent bikes and 3 treadmills. This brand creates another alternative in the introductory level price point category and is sure to be a big success.
