Nitro — Different in Design. Precise in Function. More Affordable and User-Friendly than Ever.

In many facilities, floor space is at a premium. Big machines may look great in a catalogue, but they can occupy too much space and limit the number of options you can offer your athletes and students. The competitively priced single-station weight stack equipment (with weight adjustments in 5 lb. increments) from Nautilus features a low height profile and compact footprint ideal for heavy use facilities, and are designed for a wide range of fitness levels and body types.

Our goal was to put explosive power in a smaller machine - and we achieved it! Nitro was designed from the ground up - it is not a modification of existing equipment, but rather is a new design concept that preserves the bio-mechanical integrity of all Nautilus products. With converging single axis movements and full-range, variable resistance cams, belt drive and EZ-Glide seats, Nitro machines simulate the feel of free weights. Each piece of Nitro equipment is constructed of solid, 11-gauge 2" × 4" steel frames for long life and features the full Nautilus three-year commercial warranty.

20 new sleek and streamlined machines built around efficiency, Nitro machines from Nautilus offer a challenging workout and superb fitness results, but use less of your valuable floor space - these compact units pack maximum power in a minimal package.

2ST

Nautilus 2ST's bio-mechanical design provides full range of motion for every exercise and duplicates the function of the human body. Our unique engineering and patented components combine to maximize the results and minimize the stress in the least amount of time - something exercisers of every age can appreciate. The 2ST line features one pound weight stack increments, hydraulic adjustable seats, and converging movement arms. Nautilus 2ST also combines the workout efficiency of CAM design with the smooth and quite feel of a belt-driven weight stack. Twenty individual stations are available in the Nautilus 2ST line.

IC® Evolution

While the fitness industry is known for its fads and short-lived wonders, indoor cycling has established itself as a group exercise activity that's here to stay. More than 250,000 Schwinn®-built bikes are now ridden in clubs around the world, making indoor cycling a must-have activity in health clubs everywhere. Schwinn Fitness is pleased to announce the arrival of the Schwinn Evolution® and Evolution-SR® bikes, the latest versions of Schwinn's original group exercise cycles. With their sleek, one-piece design and all-steel frames, the Schwinn Evolution indoor cycles are further examples of the innovative and high-quality products the industry has come to expect from the company that started the Indoor Cycling revolution. And like the IC Elite bike, the Schwinn Evolution-SR features the patented Smart Release system, offering all the benefits of a fixed gear - essential to any Indoor Cycling workout - while adding a unique braking feature.

RiPP

This revolutionary new exercise device creates isotonic resistance that simulates the feel of free weights. The unit is a fully functioning adjustable weight bench on wheels, with a resistance engine that's powered by a technology called SpiraFlex, a patented system used by NASA. Developed and engineered to withstand all commercial environments, the RiPP Pro incorporates only top-quality components and has been tested to over a million cycles at the highest stress point. The SpiraFlex engine contains FlexPacks that create the resistance: Rotation of the FlexPacks stretch durable, elastomer straps around the hubs, producing resistance. Unlike most resistance methods, the RiPP Pro creates linear resistance matching free weight's flat curve and momentum. The resistance is regulated by a gear-assisted crank at the front of the unit and also has a “self locking” gear box. The resistance can be turned clockwise to increase the workload and counter clockwise to decrease the workload.

Spa Partners launches ‘Club Aroma’ new steam room aroma range.

Spa Partners, formerly known as ChemSpa, has re-branded its best-selling steam room aroma range under the ‘Club Aroma’ name. Spa Partners now offers 11 aromas including its world-famous Club Aroma Eucalyptus (formerly Eucalyptus Inhalation Concentrate). Other aromas include Alpine (formerly Sauna Scenta), Caribbean Breeze, Cherry, Citrus, Coconut, Lavender, Menthol, Mentholyptus, Mint, and Oil of Wintergreen.

All of the oils were personally selected by Jerome Rudy, a world-renowned aroma specialist and President of Spa Partners. Rudy earned his Ph.D in chemistry at Colombia University, and has dozens of patents through his work at Merck & Co, Unilever and other blue-chip companies. His life-long commitment to products that ‘work with nature’ manifests in the aromatherapy quality of the products.

The Club Aroma Steam Room Aromas are available in quantities ranging from 1 gallon to 55 gallons. Their amazingly low price ranges from $28 to $37 per gallon, depending upon quantity purchased.

‘Unless properly fragranced, many steam rooms wind up smelling like a swamp. A 1-2 combination punch of superb aroma with regular cleaning is the key to successful steam room management’ says Rudy. Spa Partners also offers our Chem Spa Steam Room Cleaner for less than $10 per gallon. ‘Nothing will lose you customers quicker than a steam room that smells less than pleasant. Conversely, an aromatic steam room is a sure customer winner.’

Spa Partners also provides simple and reliable aroma dispensing systems. Our SteamAroma Micro (only $345 with rebate) is a fully automatic aroma pump, which is wired directly into the steam generator. Small enough to fit in the palm of your hand, it packs a mighty punch, and is able to fragrance even the largest steam room.

For the ultimate in ‘keep it simple’, our spray bottle with or without tether is the answer. Simply place the spray bottle on a shelf outside the steam room (or sauna). The tether prevents theft and un-authorized spillage.

For saunas, Spa Partners offers Club Aroma Sauna Aromas, dispensed by our SaunAroma Deluxe. For in-club massage or profitable re-sale to your members, Club Aroma Aromatherapy Oils in 1.69 oz. bottles are a marvellous addition.

Here is what Gold's Gym has to say about Club Aroma. ‘With 3,000 members, keeping our steam room smelling fresh and beautiful is essential. Your Club Aroma Eucalyptus makes this happen. It's far better than anything we've tried.’

George Bernheim, Gold's Gym, Santa Rosa, California Club Aroma Steam Room Aroma Range with Spray Bottle and SteamAroma Micro Jerry Rudy, President, Spa Partners With the introduction of their patented, 8300 dual action/total body elliptical, SportsArt has established a new benchmark in the elliptical product category. Foremost among the innovations is the patented stride length adjustment. Accessible from both a toggle switch built in to the handle and from the display, this feature allows the user to adjust stride length from 17 inches to 26 inches. Besides providing different sized users with the ability to find the perfect stride length, this feature can also vary the training effect. For example, sprinting while on a shorter stride setting and full stride running at longer settings.

In keeping with the demands of many of today's club members, the 8300 is a total body conditioner. A wide range of resistance levels are available, the uppermost of which will provide an anaerobic or strength workout. Resistance changes are made from a convenient switch built into the handle. Power supply is self-generating with a two-minute battery backup so users can do all programming prior to starting their workout. If you've ever had to try programming while pedaling, walking or striding, you'll know what a great feature this is. And talk about programming options — a dozen pre-set courses (all with user override), two custom designed user courses, multiple HRC options and contact heart rate are all standard in an attractive, user-friendly control module featuring a bright dot matrix display and LED windows with full time readout of all key workout data.

While the 8300 is indeed a breakthrough new product in the popular elliptical category, it will come as no surprise to those familiar with SportsArt. After all, they have been designing and manufacturing innovative cardiovascular products for two decades. To learn more about the 8300 or other SportsArt club products, call (800) 709-1400.

VITACUBE

Nutritional Supplementation for Athletic Clubs

VitaCube Systems are the SAFEST and most COMPLETE products on the market.…

The VitaCube concept is to provide high quality vitamins and minerals (No Ephedra, Creatine, Androsterone), in a system that promotes routine supplement taking. Putting safety first, V3S researchers came up with an array of systems that include everything from a multivitamin to a joint support formula. Each nutritional system, or VitaCube, has been designed to provide a complete foundation of nutrition, with an emphasis on overall health and performance.

Members are attracted to the VitaCube…

Too many members are left dumbfounded when walking into vitamin stores because they have no idea what supplements are going to provide the best results. Members have found the VitaCube easy to use, telling you exactly what to take, how much to take, and when to take your supplements. In addition, each VitaCube is neatly packaged in 30 or 60-day systems, with everything running out at the same time.

Athletic Clubs love the opportunity…

Athletic Clubs have now found with VitaCube Systems the opportunity to promote nutritional products that are not sold in large retail markets. Athletic Clubs do not have to worry about being undersold by the large retail nutrition store down the street; they now have a product specific for them.

Clubs find it easy to market…

Athletic clubs find that the VitaCube product sells itself. The convenience, simplicity and quality set it apart from any other product line in the industry. VitaCube Systems' commitment to product integrity has attracted the likes of Super Bowl strength coach Barry Rubin, All-Pro Denver Broncos quarterback Brian Griese, World Series MVP Curt Schilling, and a whole host of other All-Star athletes and trainers.
