Transforming Lives in Armstrong: Fitness Business Nominated for 3 Chamber of Commerce Awards

Armstrong, BC (PRWEB) April 22, 2015

The Armstrong and Spallumcheen Chamber of Commerce nominates more than 20 businesses each year for special awards and recognitions, highlighting them as the most influential and successful small businesses in the area. This year, Armstrong Fit Body Boot Camp has been nominated for three awards: Best Customer Service, Small Business of the Year, and Entrepreneur of the Year.

Fit Body Boot Camp is an indoor fitness boot camp brand that combines group training with individualized attention from a personal trainer to produce consistent weight loss results. The boot camp’s 30-minute workouts use a combination of intense cardio and resistance training to burn fat, build muscle, and bring clients remarkable results.

The Armstrong Fit Body Boot Camp is owned by Sheryl Dyck. A certified personal trainer and body transformation expert, Dyck has been training the Armstrong community for seven years.

“I have always loved fitness,” Dyck said, “and how it can allow someone to become powerful within themselves. Fitness changes people emotionally, mentally and physically and without all three components one does not have inner success. Working in this industry allows me the opportunity to help people find the person they are supposed to be, which looks different for everyone.”

Dyck has been a boot camp instructor since 2009 but has only recently adopted the Fit Body Boot Camp business model. Since this transition she has received an influx of positive attention, including the three recent Chamber of Commerce nominations.

The organizations nominated for these awards are competing in a pool of over 20 elite local businesses known for their powerful impact on the Armstrong and Spallumcheen community. With nominations in the Customer Service Category, Best Business and Best Entrepreneur Categories, Armstrong Fit Body Boot Camp appears to be making quite an impact.

“The nominations are awarded based on community voting and popular demand,” said Dyck. “Being nominated for any award is an honor, but having my community, clients and piers nominate me sends out a real message: it tells me that I am providing the best possible me and business to my community.”

The awards will be announced at the Armstrong & Spallumcheen Chamber of Commerce Awards on April 25 at Armstrong’s Centennial Hall.

Cybex Nominated for the FIBO Innovation Award 2015.

Medway, MA (PRWEB) April 08, 2015

Cybex International, a leading manufacturer of premium exercise equipment, has been nominated for the prestigious FIBO Innovation Award for the Cybex Eagle NX Back Extension. As a FIBO Innovation Award winner in 2012 for the Bravo Functional Trainer, Cybex is proud to be nominated again.

The Eagle NX Back Extension is part of the super premium 15-piece Eagle NX strength line, and features refined movements, restyled aesthetics and reimagined user features – while offering extreme durability and advanced biomechanics.

“The Eagle NX Back Extension does a superior job of integrating all of the back muscles, from the shoulders to the lumbar spine,” said Dr. Paul Juris, Executive Director of the Cybex Research Institute. “It also has a unique counter balance which helps maintain the resistance through the entire range of motion.”

The Eagle NX Back Extension employs a curved lumbar pad to encourage optimal spinal range of motion, and to promote controlled movement from fully flexed into extension. A two-position lumbar pad allows users to train hip extension, lumbar extension or both at the same time. Meanwhile, the patent pending counterbalancing system offsets the user’s weight for more consistent loading and greater effectiveness.

In 2015, Cybex is also unveiling new innovations in strength, cardio and service.

In the strength category, Cybex introduces Prestige Strength VRS. This 21-piece line of selectorized strength equipment provides a premium strength option for facilities seeking an exceptionally versatile, user-friendly strength solution for “walkup and workout” users. Visually striking, truly innovative, durable, and biomechanically correct, Prestige Strength VRS has been engineered to surpass other manufacturers’ premium strength lines. The line will be available in the spring of 2015.

In the cardio category, Cybex introduces the SPARC Trainer. The SPARC Trainer is designed to meet the soaring popularity of high intensity interval training, and is Cybex’s quickest, safest, and most effective cardio experience ever. Delivering five benefits in four minutes, SPARC 1) burns calories, 2) strengthens and shapes the lower body, 3) increases stamina, 4) increases strength, and 5) enhances endurance – all while being biomechanically correct and gentle on the user’s joints. SPARC will be available in the summer of 2015.

Lastly, in the service category, Cybex introduces Cybex Care, a web-based asset management system designed to help gym owners save money, reduce equipment downtime and manage machine usage. This truly useful feature will be available on all Cybex 500, 600 and 700 Cardio Series. To complement Cybex Care, Cybex is also introducing Service Wheel, an easy to engage third wheel that allows gym staff to rotate, relocate, maintain, and clean Cybex treadmills – simply, safely, and quickly. Cybex Care and Service Wheel are available now.

Cybex is available in 90 countries globally and is represented by MoveToLive, it’s partner in Germany. For information about these new products, go to


For over 45 years, Cybex International, Inc. has been a leading manufacturer of premium exercise equipment.

TrakBar Pro-X by Trak Fitness LLC Nominated for FIBO Innovation Award

Freeport, New York (PRWEB) March 26, 2015

Trak Fitness LLC, a leader in functionally advanced fitness equipment, is pleased to announce that its TrakBar Pro-X cable attachment / pull-up bar has been nominated for the 2015 FIBO Innovation Award.

The FIBO Innovation Award is the most prestigious award in the fitness industry. For 16 years, FIBO, the largest international trade show in the fitness and wellness industry, has presented the Innovation Award to the world’s most inventive fitness products. The TrakBar Pro-X is one of three products selected for the “Training Equipment” category from a total of 70 participating products.

The TrakBar Pro-X is the first and only cable attachment / pull-up bar that includes multi-axis handles which travel along the length of the bar and automatically adjust to the user’s natural hand, arm and shoulder movements. With unrestricted mobility, users can perform a wide range of new rotational cable pull and pull-up exercises that are not possible with any other exercise equipment.

The handles can be locked in any position along the length of the bar with a single switch. So a single TrakBar Pro-X provides more functionality than every other cable attachment and pull-up bar combined. Users can improve the efficiency and effectiveness of workouts by performing an unlimited range of exercises in succession without changing attachments or releasing their grip.

“We are honored to be nominated for this prestigious award.” said David Kristiansen, President of Trak Fitness LLC. “Our company’s mission is to provide truly innovative equipment to help our customers excel in their fitness goals. This nomination recognizes the passion that goes into our products.”

The TrakBar Pro-X will be exhibited in Hall 7, Stand B20 by Scotfit GmbH, which is the exclusive distributor for Trak Fitness equipment in Germany. It will also be exhibited at the Forum in Hall 9 along with the other Innovation Award nominees. Trak Fitness extends its gratitude to Jimmy Andrews and his team at Scotfit Gmbh for their leading role in presenting the TrakBar Pro-X for consideration.
