Top Five Products of the Year , 2000
9000 Series Treadmill
The combined efforts of Life Fitness and Cesaroni Design developed this second generation cardio product for the health club industry. The project goal was to create a durable look for this new treadmill product design.
Oversized design elements are incorporated into the new product design to reflect a durable cardio product. Wider stepping rails and lengthened side handrails help open and expand the user's space.
Muscular-shaped plastic motor housing integrates the vertical steel uprights with the horizontal running deck. The console is raised and angled to improve the sightline to the readouts. This new angle also brings the buttons closer to the user for easier operation.
The treadmill product design was recognized by Recreation Resources Magazine as Top Five Products of the Year.
