Irvine, Calif. – November 13, 2007 – Star Trac, the fastest growing company in commercial fitness, today announced it has acquired all products and brands of Lamar Health, Fitness & Sports (LHFS).

The products that will now be distributed by Star Trac include brands that were formerly under the LHFS umbrella, including Lamar, Advantage and Ignite. This also includes LHFS' former product line of more than 150 strength and cardio products.
