Vision Fitness received three “Best Buy” ratings in the January/February 2010 issue of Consumers Digest, a leading consumer magazine that provides the general consumer with product reviews focusing on convenience, safety and value. The X20 Elliptical Trainer received a “Best Buy” in the economy elliptical category, while the T9250 and T9200 Treadmills achieved top honors in the economy treadmill category.

“Since the launch of our brand nearly 15 years ago, our goal has been to develop value-oriented fitness equipment that helps consumers live happier, healthier lives,” said Gary Peak, Vice President of Sales for Vision Fitness. “To be recognized as a ‘Best Buy' speaks volumes for the quality of our equipment and the value we offer consumers. Vision products have received an unprecedented 28 Best Buys to date from leading consumer review publications. When you purchase a product from Vision Fitness, you don't have to sacrifice. You get the performance and features you want, without having to break the bank.”

The performance/value message is clearly emphasized in Consumers Digest's review of the X20 Elliptical Trainer. The magazine reports that it's an “incredible value” and provides “the fluid feel of elliptical machines that cost $500 more.” In its review of the T9250 Folding Treadmill, the magazine reports that it “beats the competition on warranty and storability.”
