Sherman Oaks, CA (PRWEB) August 26, 2004
Encore Fitness, a provider of quick, effective and high-intensity workout facilities, today announced it is the first gym in Southern California to have adopted X-Biking from Trixter to lead the market with cutting-edge full body indoor cycling. The announcement was made by Jennifer Benson, CEO and co-founder of Encore Fitness.
Encore Fitness has a long history of being at the forefront of the latest fitness developments. Formerly Billy Blanks original Taebo Center, it was also one of the first gyms in the country to provide indoor group cycling classes.
"We see X-Biking as the future of high-intensity cardio workouts", says Benson. "The fitness community is constantly on the outlook for better results, quicker workout turnarounds and a more enjoyable cardio experience. X-Biking is delivering a fun, extremely effective and quick cardiovascular workout that we expect to quickly become a dominant trend across the country.Â
The X-BikeÂ incorporates a unique articulating handlebar with adjustable resistance to provide an unparalleled 30-minute full-body cardiovascular workout that feels Âtrue-to-cyclingÂ. This is not accomplishable through spinning or regular stationary biking with fixed handlebars.
Encore Fitness and Trixter have been formulizing a partnership since May of this year, which will also involve joint marketing and public relations efforts in addition to Encore FitnessÂ in depth involvement in the ongoing development of Trixter products and services such as the X-Bike and X-Biking programming. The partnership will also turn Encore Fitness into the only location in Southern California to provide high-level instructor training and certification services for Trixter.
ÂThe relationship that we have successfully crafted with Trixter is a major step towards Encore FitnessÂ goals of providing the most innovative and effective group exercise workouts available, as well as our ambitions of regional expansionÂ, continues Benson. ÂWith venture capital recently secured by Funk Ventures Capital Partners (http://www.funkventures.com), we are poised to implement our expansion plans as early as next year.Â
