Kent, WA â€“ JULY 8, 2009 â€“ The Diamondback Fitness 900Sr recumbent bike was recognized for its outstanding design, features and value by Health Magazine, receiving America's Healthiest Fitness Buys Award in the July issue. â€œWe continue to attract attention for our value, features and design which have helped us stand out in a â€œsea of greyâ€ product,â€ commented Brian Davidson, Director of Sales for Diamondback Fitness. Much like its sister company, Diamondback bicycles, Diamondback Fitness is well positioned as a highly featured, value priced product line exceeding the features and benefits of other products in the same price category.
The recognition by Health magazine follows two previous recognitions. In September of 2008, FitnessProfessorReview.com recognized Diamondback Fitness with 4 â€œHead of the Classâ€ awards for their 500Ub, 500Sr, 900Ub and 900Sr upright and recumbent bikes. â€ It is always great to have one of your products recognized in the industry, but when we received the Best Buy status for all four products, we new we were on the right track with the new product line,â€ continued Davidson. The second recognition was in January of 2009 when Diamondback Fitness was also recognized by one of the leading consumer magazines as a â€œRecommended Buyâ€ for its 1260Ef front drive elliptical and received the highest points rating of any elliptical product. Diamondback received one of only 2 recommendations in the 2009 consumer rankings for elliptical products.
On top of the product recognition, Diamondback Fitness has also attracted the attention of some of the largest specialty fitness retailers in the industry. â€œWe are very fortunate to work with such a great group of retailers including some of the largest in our industryâ€. Working with large retailers like Chicago Home Fitness, Leisure Fitness, Push Pedal Pull, Fitcorp USA, and Fitness Showcase in the U.S. and Fitness Depot in Canada has been a great opportunity for our companyâ€.
Diamondback will continue with its product innovations when it launches a new elliptical product line this fall. â€œWe continue to use our resources and design influence from the bicycle side of our business to rethink our approach to fitness product design. Less plastic and more attention to detail is our mantra.â€ The dealers that have seen the prototypes and concepts drawings have given us incredible encouragement and praise and have stated that we are on the right track to bring a fresh new look to the elliptical category.
