Makes Noise


Las Vegas was hopping in October due to the 2012 Club Industry Show. Fitness owners and operators from around the world attended the event and had the opportunity to see Star Trac’s new TreadClimber® alpha protoype. Attendees spent time learning about the mechanics of the TreadClimber as well as testing it out. Functionally, the TreadClimber moves like a treadmill and an elliptical combined, preserving the best of both due to the 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.
