This month at Fitness Equipment Cafe we’ve had product releases from Precor and Garmin. We also uploaded video interviews/demo’s featuring Johhny G’s new piece of fitness equipment with Matrix as well as Big Ass Fan’s – Black Jack fan which is ideal for gym’s. We also talk fitness equipment with pro surfer Sally Fitzgibbons.

Precor Announce Converging CrossRamp Elliptical

After creating the EFX elliptical in 1995, Precor are again breaking ground in the genre, committing their elliptical future to converging biomechanics.

Industry insiders have suggested that the new Precor EFX elliptical with converging cross ramp will eventually replace the current EFX model, rather than add to the existing line.  You can check out the full details, including a video – here.

Johnny G’s IN-TRINITY Board


We all know Johnny G as the creator of Spinning. After turning Spinning into a global fitness phenomenon, you’d forgive him for quitting while he was ahead, but – no. Johnny G joined forces with Matrix to create the Krankcycle and then most recently the IN-TRINITY Board. In this interview with Natashia, you’ll learn how Johnny G developed this piece of ‘energy-in’ fitness equipment. The IN-TINITY board was designed to help users improve balance, strength, flexibility, agility and co-ordination.

You can discover the full details in my interview with Natashia as well as see a comprehensive demo here.

Pro Surfer Sally Fitzgibbons Talks Fitness Equipment

While at the Fitness & Health Expo in Melbourne, Technogym offered me the chance to chat with pro surfer Sally Fitzgibbons. Sally became a Technogym ambassador earlier this year and has wasted no time becoming accustomed to her new Italian family. In this interview Sally talks about keeping fit on the pro surfing circuit as well as her garage gym and her favourite piece of Technogym equipment.

BlackJack Fan For the Gym

I also caught up with Big Ass Fans at the Fitness and Health Expo and discovered their BlackJack fan, which is the baby brother of the AIRGO. At a mere 1.8 metres high, the BlackJack fan fit’s under a standard door frame and therefor can be wheeled through your facility. It looks incredible (see below) and was a big hit with all the cross fitters competing at the Fitness Expo arena. Sexy ain’t it!
