VANCOUVER, WA –Treadclimbers are getting another look at 24 Hour Fitness facilities across the country as Nautilus Inc., the equipment’s manufacturer, reintroduced the equipment in late June after withdrawing it last fall to strengthen the hydraulic system.

The announcement, made by Mark Mastrov, chairman and CEO of 24 Hour Fitness, and Gregg Hammann, chairman and CEO of Nautilus, occurred as the last of 500 Nautilus Commercial TreadClimber units were shipped to about 80 of the more than 360 24 Hour Fitness clubs across the country.

"Our hydraulic cylinder supplier worked with us for six months to deliver a product that is performing well in the laboratory, in test markets, and now in clubs across the country," said Hammann.
