Woodinville, WA. (October 23, 2006) SportsArt Fitness, an industry leader in the design, development and manufacture of premium quality strength and cardiovascular fitness equipment, is pleased to introduce the new commercial grade Xtreme Cardio Series.

Comprised of treadmills, upright and recumbent cycles and elliptical machines, SportsArt Fitness’ Xtreme Cardio Series is the result of years of design and development with leading fitness professionals including health club owners, personal trainers, top-flight equipment designers and industry influencers.

“Utilizing our position as the industry’s most seasoned international supplier we’ve developed the Xtreme Cardio Series; commercial fitness equipment that will not only excel in the most demanding club settings but will ultimately save owners money,” said Terry Brown, President of SportsArt Fitness. “Based on feedback from our ‘Xtreme Team’ – a combination of nationally renowned club partners, our incredible design team and other key industry insiders – we’re bringing to market a comprehensive fitness collection that reflects our commitment to excellence,” concluded Brown.

Each product category brings innovative technologies to the mix from the new IntelliDriveâ„¢ treadmill system to the patented adjustable stride mechanism on all Xtreme Series elliptical machines. Xtreme Cardio equipment comes with two screen options; a new dot matrix and LED user interface or an amazing entertainment-ready 10.2-inch Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) screen capable of displaying full screen workout data, full screen video or split screen combo. Xtreme Cardio machines also have convenient contact heart rate points and are HR telemetry compatible.

The 600 Series treadmills headline the new Xtreme Cardio offerings with sleek, elegant lines that will enhance the look of any facility. Refinements including integrated handrails and a wrap-around console, combined with a host of innovative technological advancements and incredible durability, will make the SportsArt Fitness Xtreme treadmills the cornerstone of any club.

The first of many breakthrough features found in the 600 Xtreme Series treadmills includes the new IntelliDriveâ„¢ system, a self-regulating, brushless drive system designed to be virtually maintenance free. Equally as important is the fact the 600 Series treadmills use up to 32 percent less electricity than standard DC powered units resulting in lower energy costs and long term savings.

Additionally, the My-Flexâ„¢ cushioning system, guaranteed for the life of the machine, ensures a comfortable joint-friendly workout by automatically adjusting the softness or firmness of the treadmill deck based on the users weight. Finally, the command center features SportsArt Fitness’ proprietary CardioAdvisorâ„¢ heart rate training system, easy to reach controls and a three-speed fan.

500 Series bikes are available in both upright and recumbent models. Upright models have an ergonomic design to accommodate a variety of riding styles. A large, comfortable seat, complete with one-touch adjustment system, provides proper positioning, while oversized pedals ensure a steady riding platform. Recumbent cycles feature a convenient step-through design, a patented, adjustable Comfort-Driâ„¢ seatback and comfortable oversized pedals with one-touch adjustment system.

The 800 Series elliptical machines continue to build upon the momentum SportsArt Fitness brought to the category through their patented, electronically adjustable stride length. Offering over ten different positioning points, the adjustable stride enables users of any size to comfortably operate the machines and also allows users to vary their individual workout at the touch of a button. Multi-Radiusâ„¢ stride arms help provide a smooth, no-impact total body workout, while resistance level and stride length adjustment are both operated by fingertip controls located on the handlebars.

Look for the SportsArt Fitness Xtreme Cardio Series in finer fitness facilities throughout the United State and Canada beginning in December 2006. Images and pricing available upon request.
