Star Trac has solidified its status as the fastest growing company in commercial fitness as the company announced its status as the only global MYE Entertainment distributor in North America.
Star Trac is aggressively supporting its relationship with MYE. Effective Sept. 4, Star Trac has hired three individuals exclusively to sell and develop the MYE system in all markets. This step furthers the partnership Star Trac announced with MYE in March 2007 (http://www.startrac.com/press/display_pr.asp?ID=54).
â€MYE utilizes technology to make workouts more enjoyable for individuals, and Star Trac is committed to providing the tools for people to enjoy active, healthy lifestyles,â€ said Randy Bergstedt, vice president of marketing for Star Trac. â€œIf people can enjoy MYE technology while exercising, we believe they'll keep coming back for more. Regular exercise habits are not just profitable for the fitness club owner, but healthy and beneficial for the user, which is truly the foundation of Star Trac's mission.â€
The hiring of three employees to focus solely on MYE means increased support for Star Trac's customers' entertainment needs. Subsequently, some MYE technologies will be designed specifically for integration into Star Trac equipment. MYE Entertainment LLC, led by President Tony Garcia, will be the primary creative force behind the products and will own the MYE Entertainment name and brand. Star Trac's new in-house sales force includes Andrea Garvey, Kathy Mitchell-Guthrie, and Lee Guthrie, who will be servicing MYE Entertainment and Star Trac customers.
"This allows us to be more aggressive with future product opportunities," said Bergstedt. â€œThis agreement solidifies our base of products in entertainment and gives us the foundation to launch additional new products in the future. We have big plans."
