Torque Fitness Named Preferred Vendor by Anytime Fitness


Andover, Minn. – Oct. 28, 2013 – Due to its commitment to functional group training, Torque Fitness, an innovator of premium strength equipment for health clubs and homes, has been named a Preferred Vendor by Anytime Fitness, the fastest-growing fitness club franchise with 1883 clubs in North America.

Preferred products for Anytime Fitness facilities are Torque’s unique X-Series collection of multi-purpose, multi-user equipment, which includes the versatile X-Lab and X-Racks. Preferred vendor status entitles all Anytime Fitness facilities worldwide to preferred pricing for the X-Series.

“We are truly excited to partner with Anytime Fitness to help their clubs deliver scalable, customizable solutions for functional training, which continues to grow more popular,” said Jerry Dettinger, CEO of Torque Fitness.

 “Torque’s innovative equipment is ideal for our fitness centers, because it offers so many options for our members and can be expanded according to space allocation,” added Shelly Nikolou, director of partnerships at Anytime Fitness, based in Hastings, Minn. 

Designed to satisfy the demand for functional small group training at health clubs, both the X-Lab and X-Racks allow personal trainers to lead multiple users all performing the same movements at the same time, thereby fostering efficient, safe workouts that are fueled by a group dynamic and motivational energy. Trainers can easily see each individual and give personal instruction and guidance, and clubs can run a variety of class formats throughout the day.

The X-Lab offers stations for kettlebell training, resistance band work, suspension exercises, ground rotational training, wall ball drills, a heavy bag, a plyo step and chin ups and dips. And for the ultimate in customization and space efficiency, the new X-Lab Spider offers 15 standard configurations and accommodates six users in less than 250 square feet. Every system is also expandable.

X-Racks are scalable as well, in four- and six-foot increments, and come in freestanding, wall-mounted, monkey bar and Warrior models for freestyle training. They include accessories such as a plyo step, ball target, dip station, ground rotational trainer, bar crosses and catches, attachments for suspension ropes and battle ropes, along with storage for bars and weight plates.
