Vancouver, WA, May 4, 2015 - Core Health & Fitness LLC, the Vancouver, WA-based parent company of Star Trac and StairMaster, proudly partnered with the Simi Valley (Calif.) Family YMCA to create a best-in-class cardio experience for their 2,500 square foot fitness facility featuring user-focused Star Trac E Series treadmills, upright bikes, recumbent bikes and cross trainers as well as an indoor cycling studio with the quiet, belt-driven Spinner® NXT Black BeltTM to help members achieve their fitness goals.

“The Simi Valley YMCA is an integral part of Ventura County that is truly committed to providing their community with a facility that encourages and supports programs and activities designed to help create a successful path of health and wellness,” explains Nicole Hagar, Southern California Sales Representative for Core Health & Fitness. “It has been an absolute pleasure to work with the leadership staff at the Simi Valley Family YMCA to provide solutions to facilitate an inclusive and supportive environment within their branch that fosters life-long healthy habits. We are committed to a long-lasting relationship with them and their passionate staff to support the YMCA members in an active lifestyle.”

With parallel goals of helping people to instill healthy habits for long-term well being, the Simi Valley Family YMCA and Star Trac were natural partners to bring a customer-focused project like this to fruition. In order to understand the full breadth of products available to their members, the Simi Valley Family YMCA team visited the Core Health & Fitness showroom at the Company’s Southern

California headquarters to experience each product in consideration. To meet the needs of their varied membership base, they YMCA selected the stylish and feature-rich E Series cardio with motivational programs to engage members and comfort-focused upgrades like Soft Trac® triple cell cushioning for footpad surfaces. Because programming is also a vital component to the YMCA experience, the Simi Valley Family YMCA upgraded their Spinning® studio with the first belt-driven bike backed by Spinning education, the Spinner® NXT Black BeltTM which offers a smooth, quiet, and virtually maintenance-free ride.

“We are very excited to offer the community and our members new, high-quality equipment to help individuals achieve their health and wellness goals,” commented Dan Jaeger, Executive Director of Simi Valley Family YMCA.

Maintenance and product reliability were key factors in the decision making process for the Simi Valley Family YMCA. In addition to the high quality products they selected for the cardio area, Core Health & Fitness offers a dedicated service contact who exclusively services YMCA branches and has access to the parts depot at the Company’s headquarters in Irvine, Calif. This direct line to service means the Simi Valley Family YMCA has a local resource who is as committed to their product uptime as they are, which will benefit their members as they continue to work towards healthier habits.

“The Simi Valley Family YMCA is committed to enhancing our members’ fitness experience,” explained Tim Dominguez, Health Living and Sports Direct for the YMCA. “With the addition of brand new Star Trac cardio and Spin® bike equipment, our facility feels like a new fitness center.”

The result of the partnership between the Simi Valley Family YMCA and Core Health & Fitness is a comprehensive, customized fitness solution including stylish and reliable cardio products with the features that matter most to the member base and a commitment to service that addresses key concerns for the YMCA, all to help the Simi Valley community achieve their health and fitness goals.
