City Blends' new modified system, the City MiNi program, is designed for smaller footprint clubs and personal training/functional studios that may not have the clientele to support a full-blown juice bar. This new system is a compact, hand-pour program that uses a powerful tabletop blender, in lieu of the original BD-8 Blender Dispenser. The program allows club owners to offer the same City Blends smoothie menu to customers where space and finances are limited. The City MiNi program is a more economical option that is just right for customers looking to add a smoothie bar at a lower buy-in cost.

FitWall is more than a climbing wall — it is a gravity training product that allows users to engage in a total body workout and burn up to 900 calories per hour. The FitWall allows people to move and hold their bodies up against the force of gravity so their abs are constantly engaged. Plus, while using FitWall, multiple groups of muscles are always fighting against gravity to burn calories, shape the body, improve hand-eye coordination and core balance. The FitWall can be installed anywhere, indoors or out, where there is adequate support. It also can be easily disassembled and relocated.
