Testing and gathering feedback is an important process at SportsArt. We want to ensure that the features of the units we provide not only look great but are functional and meet the expectations of our dealers, gym-owners, and end users.

Conversely, a flashy ad for a $2500 economy car may make your wallet feel better, but in the long run, it probably won’t be very good at getting you from point A to point B. Fitness equipment is no different! So here are a few things you need to know.

Can your equipment handle that guy? SportsArt’s equipment is built with these bull-like gym goers in mind. Take our treadmills for example. From design to production, our treadmills are put through the ringer with rigorous tests designed to break the average machine. These tests allow us to simulate the biggest, baddest users that “run” in your gym for hours on end and make sure that they can withstand the abuse time and time again. Some of the tests our treadmills must pass are:
