Vision Fitness to Launch Commercial Line Expansion, Chris Torggler Appointed General Manager of Vision Commercial Fitness


COTTAGE GROVE, Wis. – Vision Fitness, a provider of durable and intuitive fitness equipment, is set to launch a full-commercial line of strength equipment. This line, designed for value-conscious health clubs, hotels, and other vertical channels, joins the existing cardio offering which includes a full-commercial warranty.

The launch plan includes 32 new product introductions throughout 2024, which were revealed on March 7 and 8 at the brand’s inaugural IHRSA tradeshow booth at the Los Angeles Convention Center. 

The new products were designed and developed to deliver reliability and strong value for customers.

  • The first phase of the launch is a 14-piece collection of selectorized strength equipment, including 7 single stations and 7 dual stations, which are available for purchase now. 

  • The second phase of the launch is a 16-piece plate-loaded and free-weight strength line, which will launch later in Q1.
  • The third phase of the launch in 2024 will be two new cardio pieces, launching in Q2.

"We are incredibly excited to offer a full-commercial product line and expand our assortment, headlined by the brand-new selectorized strength line,” said Jeff Moser, Senior Director of Sales. “Now with our full collection of durable, intuitive strength units, Vision is a great choice for any fitness facility looking for reliability and value in their equipment, creating instant equity for the facility owner.”

The new selectorized strength line is built to withstand a variety of demanding environments, boasts a durable, contemporary matte black finish. The products are tested to withstand over a million reps, which is more than four times the industry standard. Open frame designs with color-coded adjustment points and exercise placards make it easy for exercisers of all levels to use. Converging and independent movements along with fully enclosed weight stacks and ergonomically sculpted pads are all additional examples of value-add features in the line.

In conjunction with the launch, Chris Torggler has been named the General Manager of the U.S. Vision Commercial Group.
