Our treadmills feature personal fans, integrated iPod® connectivity ports, towel bars and a space for a magazine. User-focused breakthroughs like the SoftTrac® impact absorption system and the Aero Bar™ comfort grip system ensure these treadmills lie at the forefront of innovation.
Factory Tip: treadmill training is an excellent way to build fitness, but remember a minimum of 1% incline is necessary to mimic the energy requirements of running outdoors! Interchange between high-paced and uphill treadmill sessions for maximum results.
The Total Body Trainers will get your heart pumping and your muscles moving like nothing else.

Spend five minutes on one and you’ll see and feel why there’s no other single machine workout quite like it.
The Concept-2 Indoor Rower is the best-selling rowing machine in the world. Rowing works multiple major and minor muscle groups through a wide range of motion, and consequently provides a superb workout every time. Knees, hips, arms and shoulders will each see 90 – 130 degrees of rotation in every stroke, which is more than you’ll find in most other aerobic activities. This greater muscle involvement makes rowing an excellent calorie burner, while also developing flexibility and strength.
Note: Rowing is impact-free, and the intensity is completely user-controlled. So you can row as hard or as easily as you want, making it suitable for people of all ages and all walks of life.
Factory Gyms provides nxt, pro and eSpinner Spin bikes for individual use in the Gym. Spin bike cycling provides an unrivaled cardiovascular workout. The high cadance (RPM) achievable on a Spin bike makes it perfect for high energy interval training. Crank up the resistance to combine your cardiovascular workout with muscle burning resistance training.
Note: Spin bikes are fixed wheel bikes and therefore cannot coast – this is what ensures they provide a fantastic cardiovascular workout. So, start out slow while you get used to the Spin Bike experience.
Factory Tip: Spin bike cycling optimally involves a combination of low resistance high cadence (RPM) spints and high resistance climbs out of the saddle. Set yourself a goal beforehand (e.g. 10 high RPM sprints followed by 10 hills) and don’t forget to bring water (you’ll sweat buckets!)
