IHRSA 2013

What could be more exciting than getting a sneak peak on what’s to come in the Fitness World?!! This year at IHRSA all the fitness products and equipment were nothing short of amazing! The only bad thing is we wish we could have stayed longer!

First we got to start off our trip at the Stairmaster 30th and Schwinn 10th Anniversary party. It was great to mingle with some wonderful people in the fitness community! It was great listening to the speakers and having some alumni there to check out how far the Stairmaster has come after 30 years! Did you know that Sportsmith is Stairmaster and Schwinn’s authorized product support center? Yup! So give us a call if you have any questions!

We started our morning off right with an early morning workout by Xerciselab. We checked out the Build Lab class. This is a workout that uses your body weight as resistance. My thighs are still burning from all the squats!

Then we were off to the trade show floor. Oh the smell of new equipment… Ok, maybe it was the Chobani Greek Yogurt we were smelling... Still amazing! We were in awe of all the new technology that has come out for the new equipment. A hot new product we loved? The Grid Mini by Trigger Point- we may not leave home without one now. I was dying to lie down and try it out along with the ColdRoller. Unfortunately the Grip Mini is not available until April. We were also able to hop onto Star Trac’s new TreadClimber®- love it! Some popular items this year seem to be surf board workouts (SURFSET Fitness, FreeMotion Fitness, and StrongBoard Balance), Suspension training (TRX, Jungle Gym XT) and different functional training stations (SYNRGY 360T by LifeFitness and CT8 Fitness Training System by Tuff Stuff Fitness).

We had a wonderful time checking out the new equipment and can’t wait to get some new stuff in stock!
