International award recognizes Nautilus, Inc.’s industry-leading innovation

Vancouver, Wash., January 30, 2018 – Nautilus, Inc. (NYSE: NLS), a leader in innovative fitness equipment, has received the prestigious ISPO Award for the Bowflex® HVT® machine. Recognized for its ground-breaking design, the revolutionary Bowflex HVT machine was selected as a Winner in the Health & Fitness category – an honor only 18 products received.

The Bowflex HVT machine expands on the traditional home gym by offering hybrid velocity training – a new approach to fitness that combines cardio and strength training into one of the fastest, most effective workouts ever designed. In as little as 18 minutes and 20 seconds, everyone – from beginners to seasoned pros – can increase their metabolism and burn calories while building sculpted, lean muscles.

The Bowflex HVT machine captured the ISPO Award jury’s attention for its innovation, quality and unique design – standing out amongst hundreds of submissions. A highly regarded international design award, the ISPO Award honors the most exceptional sporting goods products.

“With the Bowflex HVT machine, our goal was to create a new category of fitness equipment with advanced technology and motivational workouts,” said Bruce Cazenave, Chief Executive Officer of Nautilus, Inc. “The ISPO Award validates our unique design that enables customers across the globe to achieve their fitness goals.”

The HVT machine’s dynamic coaching console features three pre-programmed workout modes, resistance adjustment at the turn of a dial, and an intuitive interface that provides instant feedback to keep users motivated and on track. With built-in Bluetooth® smart technology and the free HVT® app, available for iOS and Android, users can choose pre-built workouts or customize their own from 50 trainer-led videos that guide them every step of the way, and allows them to go at their own pace.
