Star Trac’s TreadClimber® Makes Noise at Club Industry Show

IRVINE, Calif., October 24, 2012–Las Vegas was hopping in October for the 2012 Club Industry Show. Fitness owners and operators from all parts of the country attended  the event and were excited to see Star Trac’s New TreadClimber®. Industrial Designer, Victor Cornejo, and Mechanical Design Engineer Maxwell Gilmore were on-hand to assist onlookers with the new alpha prototype of the TreadClimber.

Attendees spent time learning about the mechanics of the TreadClimber as well as physically testing it out. The reviews are in and the TreadClimber was a hit.

Here’s what people were saying:“The product was such a great workout that Patchel Evans, owner and founder of GoodLife, came back on Friday and used it as his workout for the day,” shared Michael Bruno, Founder of Core Industries DBA Star Trac.Brett Athey, CEO of Glide exclaimed, “These guys figured it out! They did it!”

“Everyone loved the look and feel of the TreadClimber. The number one question was: when can I get one? Many commented “This unit feels better than ever before”. Even Star Trac’s competitors came over to try it out wanting to find out more about the product. It was a great show,” said Victor Cornejo, Star Trac Industrial Designer.

“The industry response to the progress of the TreadClimber was fantastic, we had so many positive responses to both the mechanical design and the overall look that we couldn’t be happier,” shared Jeff Dilts, Star Trac’s Senior Director of Marketing & Product Management.

The industry response comes as no surprise given the products efficiency. The TreadClimber promises to burn significantly more calories than a similar treadmill workout with a lower perceived exertion. It enables the user to work harder, burn more calories…in a fraction of the time.

Functionally the TreadClimber moves like a treadmill and an elliptical preserving the best of both due to the exclusive patented  motion of the decks. Other benefits include more flexion at the hip and knee for more muscle engagement and a better overall lower body workout.

The TreadClimber is scheduled to launch to the general public at the IHRSA 2013 International Convention and Trade Show.For more information about the TreadClimber or to find out more information about Star Trac’s products and services call 1-800-228-6635 or visit
