VANCOUVER, Wash.-- Nautilus, Inc. (NYSE:NLS), a pure fitness company, expressed its congratulations to Indianapolis fireman and entrepreneur Jim Campbell, 48, who shattered the world record of steps climbed on a StairMaster(R) step mill during a fundraiser this week.

Campbell climbed 106,377 steps or 13.4 vertical miles in a 24-hour period, 60 percent more than the previous record 66,000 steps set earlier this year. The feat was the equivalent of a half-marathon vertically, or climbing steps of the Empire State Building more than 56 times, in just 18 hours of stepping. His feat, which is awaiting certification by the Guinness World Records, was staged to generate about $20,000 for two cancer-related non-profit organizations and three memorial scholarship funds.

"This is a remarkable accomplishment in human endurance and in demonstrating compassion for others," said Tim Hawkins, President of fitness equipment for Nautilus, Inc., which manufactures StairMaster(R) step mills at its cardiovascular manufacturing facility in Tulsa, Okla. "Mr. Campbell's achievement reminds us that the single most important ingredient to achieving a fit and healthy life is a passion to improve."

For two decades, StairMaster steppers and step mills have been considered the most effective and rigorous cardiovascular workout among primary fitness equipment and serve as part of the training regimen for firefighters who often climb many flights of steps. Mr. Campbell received a Pike Township Fire Department unit commendation for heroically climbing to the second story of a burning building September 26, 1999, to rescue a trapped individual.

In addition to serving as a firefighter, Mr. Campbell raises chili peppers and markets hot sauces through his Mild to Wild Pepper and Herb Co. More information on the fundraiser is available at www.stepupforcharity.org.

Nautilus, Inc. donated two StairMaster(R) step mills to Mr. Campbell's Step Up for Charity fundraising program.
