VANCOUVER, WA. May 24, 2016 – Core Health & Fitness, an industry leader in the distribution of commercial fitness products, and ECOFIT introduce Cintel. Cintel, Cardio Intelligence, is a cross-brand cardio management solution designed to network hundreds of cardio pieces on the health-club floor without costly networking infrastructure. 

ECOFIT’s key to successful cardio management is a robust, high density, long range wireless technology. ECOFIT's solution has been designed from the ground up to address unique challenges in busy club environments. The patented technology works with new and existing cardio equipment, is low cost and does not tie up valuable WiFi bandwidth.

We are so proud of ECOFIT and all of FITC's supporters and the contributions they are making to this new era of technology in the fitness industry.” 

The Cintel solution is scalable and designed for easy facility adoption on an enterprise level. Cintel works with all of your cardio brands and allows viewing of the ‘health’ of all cardio equipment from anywhere at any time. Cintel also helps manage purchasing decisions based on real-time relevant data. 

Merrill Richmond, Vice President of Marketing for Core Health & Fitness says, “The power of the Cintel solution stems from its open and inclusive design. In addition to the Core Health & Fitness brands Star Trac and StairMaster, Cintel works on many other manufacturers' products and on many legacy models of equipment. Cintel brings state of the art capabilities to any fitness facility without requiring operators to discard what they have. It’s scalable, easy to install and a smart approach for operators large and small. “
