Plans for the next 12 months
We are celebrating StairMaster’s 40th anniversary and launching the StairMaster 4G. Designed to fit perfectly into hospitality and multihousing training centres, the 4G is the StairMaster solution when size matters!

Star Trac launches the Virtual Bike, the most versatile bike, giving the rider an unlimited experience. The Virtual Bike is purpose-built to withstand the rigours of a commercial cardio floor and meet the needs of non-staffed vertical market spaces such as hospitality and multi-housing amenity centres.

Core offers more customisation options with Throwdown rigs that are built-to-fit for a standout piece that optimises space. The total-body workout on the HIIT Ski and HIIT Rower brings the natural mobility of sport to the training zone.

Together with our partners, we create the best fitness offerings with the most recognised brands worldwide.

Testimonial
“We chose Core Health & Fitness for several reasons, the main one was that we were able to get the majority of the equipment we wanted from one place at a competitive price.

The Star Trac and Stairmaster brands have been big favourites of our members in our Taunton gym so we were keen to make them a central part of our new gym in Plymouth.

Schwinn was a natural choice for our indoor bikes and we’ve been really pleased with the AC Power in our classes.

Throwdown became available as we were looking to equip our functional areas, we took a gamble on the rigs and it paid off. Our HIIT classes and functional areas have the rigs as a central focus providing multiple options for each workout.

As a gym we have a strength and resistance focus so choosing the right plate loaded equipment was really important, we were really impressed by the focus that Nautilus places on the smooth and intuitive way each piece of equipment functions so we bought most of the range! We are proud to be a Nautilus Trusted Strength Centre and our members are really enjoying the kit.”
