    Great service! Great price! Great product! I ordered the machine (Kettler Favorit rower) Thursday afternoon and it arrived only two days later, on Saturday. This was even faster than promised, which was still faster than anyone else. I also got a great price for the machine, much lower than elsewhere. The machine itself is also great so far. It really simulates actual rowing, which no other rower in its price range does. Michael Schultz, Los Angeles, California

    I am very happy with my bike I purchased in December. I've been using it everyday for an hour since December 16th and I have already seen a big difference in my muscle tone and everything fits me better. I am so happy I finally went for the purchase; I should have done it years ago. It is worth every penny to feel so good about you. Andy was very helpful and pleasant when I called and I thought it was shipped out fast. I received my bike in one week and I can't say enough about how nice this machine is. Thank you so much.

    Tricia Kazlauska | Oneida, NY

    We purchased from Fitnessdirtect a WaterRower and the quality of the machine is outstanding. The machine is quiet and is a significant improvement over some of those noisy dust collectors. That assessment is based on 41 years of rowing in all types of boats and rowing machines. If you are looking for a great place to do business with then contact Fitnessdirect. They are courteous, reliable and very helpful. Combined with the great service and quality is the best price around.

    John Davidson | S Natick, MA

    Greetings, I am writing to congratulate you on your outstanding customer service. The item I purchased (sit up board) was back ordered so the transaction involved a number of communications between myself and your staff. Your company receives a 100% AAA+++ in this area. I was kept well informed by members of your staff regarding the status of my order and their friendly, prompt and courteous service is unparalleled. Having sold BMW and Mercedes automobiles for 15 years I recognize quality customer care when I see it. This was truly an extraordinary buying experience and it was your people who made it such. Lastly the product is exactly as promised and I could not be more pleased with every aspect of this transaction. Best Wishes, The purpose of life is to serve and to show compassion and the will to help others. Only then have we ourselves become true human beings.

    Just letting you know how satisfied I am with the product and service....the order actually arrived BEFORE I received my shipping confirmation number. As far as the ab machine....SUPER!!! I've been working out for 20 plus years and have been finding it more and more difficult to get up and down from the floor (no kidding) when doing my ab workout (I'll be 52 in March). Not only does the ab leverage machine conquer my up and down problem, but it really blasts my abs. GREAT PRODUCT!! I'll be shopping you guys again.

    David Burns | Ashland, OH

    Two points. One. From the time I first made an inquiry about buying a treadmill for my daughter through the delivery problems (see below) Andy Grenz was absolutely terrific! He always responded promptly, was most helpful in resolving any issues, and couldn't have been more user friendly. Second. The delivery service in Dallas was not particularly helpful in trying to find a convenient time for the delivery (it required intervention by Andy) and on the delivery date, they were two hours later than the scheduled time.

    Jerry claiborne | Briar Cliff, NY

    I received my bench, smooth transaction thanks.

    Michael and Lisa Ruiz | Phoenix, AZ

    Hi Andy, Just a quick note to let you know that I received my Kettler Condor elliptical Trainer today. You were right; this is one heavy duty and easy to use machine.It is just what I was looking for. Thank you for taking the time to hear my entire Elliptical trainer needs and for pointing me in the right direction. Also, the people at Conway Express are great to deal with, they even gave me a heads-up on the delivery time so that I could make myself available.

    Steve Parker | Birmingham, AL

    You can imagine my uncertainty........The Ab board was my first eBaypurchase, your help on and off the website made me feel more at ease knowing that there was a real person on the other end of the email address. I haven't received it yet, but it your response time to emails is any indication I should have it very soon. Thanks for all of your help.

    Palombi-Ali, Teresa | Mississauga, ON

    Dear Customer Service Manager: I have ordered the Linex Vertical Knee Raise X615 thru Efitnessdirect.com and I am completely happy with the transaction.

Thanks one more time to Andy and Victor who have made my buying process very smoothly. Regards.

    Armand M. Estrada | Alamo, CA

    I was very satisfied with the service and information provided. I will be a repeat customer.

    Kurt Schels | Eagle River, WI

    Andy and Victor, Thanks to for making the transaction go so well. I felt like my business was appreciated, which isn't as common as you would think in today’s environment with all the competition. I received my Kettler spinning bike and elliptical cross trainer. I considered getting only the bike, but you gave me a price that included shipping and swayed me to get both at once. They are both very high quality pieces of equipment and operate super smooth. Directions included made for quick and easy assembly. I'm looking forward to years of indoor fitness from my equipment. I would recommend doing business with Fitness Direct to anyone that wants to buy quality training equipment from people that are great to work with. I'm glad I followed your advice and had help to my merchandise. With the extra built in crating for the elliptical, the boxes were heavy and bulky.

    Thank you all so very much! The Horizon is awesome! I absolutely love it! I am so glad I went through your website for purchase. I will definitely go through you all if I need any other equipment in the future and will direct anyone who needs fitness equipment to your site! Thanks so much again! You guys are great!

    Jessica D. Sergent | Albuquerque, MN

    Thanks for the quick shipment and great value on the fitness equipment. I had been searching the internet for a VKR/chin/dip station. I saw the same piece on fitnessfactory.com but it was more than I wanted to pay after you figure in shipping. I had bought a home gym free weight rack system from fitnessfactory.com and I knew they sold nice, solid equipment. So I was very surprised when my equipment arrived and was shipped directly from fitness factory in Chicago. It was exactly the same thing they are selling on their website but considerably less expensive from you guys. I don't know how you worked that out but hey, I don't really care. I got a nice, solid piece of equipment for a great value, so thanks.

    Sam Phillips | St. Louis, MO

    I am so pleased with how quickly I received my order. The shipping was free and arrived to my door in 5 business days. The product arrived in perfect condition and is exactly as was advertised. I would definitely purchase through Fitness Direct again.

    It was a long and complicated journey sending my new Kettler Coach Rowerfrom San Diego to my home on Vancouver Island, B.C., Canada. Andy Grenz provided outstanding customer service and was at all times friendly and accommodating. It has arrived safely and I am delighted with its performance. Many thanks for your professional service and follow-up!

    Mary Jo Wilson | Lake Cowichan, BC

    Thanks Andy for the fast and courteous service. From the first quote request I was hooked. Even though the stepper I inquired about was out of stock, Andy offered me a higher priced model for the same price. He answered my questions on the phone, and assured me about the shipping process, which was so fast that it is within 2 days of ordering. They had just opened a fitness superstore in my neighborhood, but I never even stepped foot into it, because my stepper was delivered to my driveway by Best Overnight Express who helped roll it into the garage. I assembled it in a few hours, with the "help" of my 4 year old, and had my first workout that evening. The Diamondback stepper gives me a better workout than the one at the fitness center I'm a member of, and I have a feeling that I won't be going back there too often. I am truly satisfied and will visit your store the next time I'm in San Diego to see what else I'd like to try

    Clare Chu | Fremont, CA

    Once again I would like to thank you for helping me work through the comparison of the life core S series model 1050RBs and the Spirit RBs95 model recumbent bikes. You spent a valuable amount of time discussing the relative merits of both units and with further research, I found the Spirit was a far better value for my family and me. I could have never reached my decision without your expertise, for which I shall always be grateful to you!!! Sincerely yours, Frank (from Michigan)

Programs

Classic Workouts

  • Manual: Gives you complete freedom to choose your own speed and incline levels.
  • Hill: Challenges you with intervals of multiple hills and valleys with each hill becoming progressively more difficult.
  • Random: Includes many different motivating combinations of hills and valleys.
  • EZ Incline/Resistance: Slowly and progressively increases resistance so you're less aware of the building demands.
  • Sports Training™: Simulates working out outdoors by using a baseline value to simulate a flat surface then simulating uphill and downhill with values above and below the baseline. Adjustments above and below the baseline are resistance or incline changes. Speed is controlled by the user.
  • Fit Test: Estimates cardiovascular fitness and can be used to monitor improvements in endurance every four to six weeks. *Chest strap must be worn to execute the workout.

 

HeartSync™ Workouts

  • Fat Burn: A great workout for beginners or for those days when you need a lighter workout. Automatically adjusts resistance to maintain your heart rate at 65% of your theoretical maximum.
  • Cardio: Maximizes caloric burn and boosts your energy level. Automatically adjusts resistance to maintain your heart rate at 80% of your theoretical maximum.
  • Heart Rate Hill™: An interval workout made up of three hills with each hill becoming progressively more difficult based on your heart rate goals. The first hill is 70% of your maximum heart rate (HRMax) and becomes progressively tougher (75% HRMax on the second hill and 80% HRMax on the third hill). The valley is always defined as 65% HRMax. Similar to training for sports activities such as hockey, basketball, and soccer.
  • Heart Rate Interval™: Climb a series of alternating hills (80% maximum heart rate - HRMax) and valleys (65% HRMax). The number of times you climb each hill depends on your fitness level. Similar to training for endurance activities such as triathlons and running.
  • Extreme Heart Rate™: Quickly raises and lowers resistance to get your heart rate up to 85% HRMax and down to 65% HRMax as quickly as possible. Similar to training for sports activities such as tennis, racquetball, football, and sprinting.

 

Special Workouts

  • Distance Goal: Select the distance you want to achieve and during the workout the distance goal will be shown inside a track in the workout profile window. The workout ends when the defined distance goal is reached.
  • Calories Goal: This workout allows you to select a calorie goal to achieve during the workout. The calorie window will display the initial goal set and then count down to zero. The workout ends when the defined goal during workout setup is reached.
  • Time in Zone Goal: The Target Heart Rate Goal workout allows you to select a target heart rate to achieve and maintain throughout the duration of the workout. The exercise equipment will keep the you at that target heart rate throughout the workout.
  • Goal Workouts: Determine your workout goal, including distance, calorie-burn, or target heart rate, and exercise until you reach it.
  • Custom Workouts: Create up to 3 workout per user profile and replay a favorite program with specific speed, incline, level, and target heart rate changes. The ultimate customization.

 

Heart Rate Monitoring

  • Polar® wireless chest strap included: Provides accurate, hands-free heart rate monitoring.
