But first, listen to what Craig & Hut have to say about these well-made machines in their video review:
Hut: This is Hut Allred from New Wave Fitness, here with Craig Lewin from Busy Body and Fitness Headquarters.
Craig: Hello! Hello!
Hut: That didn’t come out too well.
Craig: Let’s start over. Do you want to start over? Or just keep going; I like it. Listen, it’s Fitness Headquarters.
Hut: Yes, but I was like “Hea-Headquarters!”
Craig: It sounded good and maybe it will grab some attention and it will make people want to come here.
Hut: This is true.
Craig: But only if you’re here…so we’re going to have to like bolt you to the ground so they can come see you.
Hut: This is true.
Craig: Frisco, Texas Fitness HQ.
Hut: Yes, we are in Frisco, Texas Fitness Headquarters, and we have Fitness Headquarters throughout the Metroplex.
Craig: Yes, we do. They’re all over the place. We’ve got Preston & Forest, out in Southlake, Fort Worth. We’ve got a Fitness Outlet Fitness HQ store off 75 as well. We’ve got this location here. They’re everywhere.
Hut: And it’s so amazing, the type of people that come in the stores. I mean, you guys have everybody—stars, celebrities, to us!
Craig: That was really funny. That was really good. You know what? I think that at the end of the day, we pride ourselves in offering a certain level of customer service.
Craig: Presidents—it’s true. George Bush is buying stuff from us all the time. We just delivered some stuff out to him a few weeks ago.
Hut: Out of an HQ store.
Craig: Yes, in Dallas. He’s such a good dude. But we do—we pride ourselves on good customer service. Look, the fact of the matter is, we’ve done this for 30 years, since we were kids. We actually don’t know how to do anything else, so this is what we’ve got to put all of our energy and focus in because if this doesn’t work, we’re on the street.
Hut: You burned the ships already.
Craig: Yeah, the ships are gone. We love what we do. It’s a lot of fun, so we want to bring you this Landice Treadmill. We’ll talk a little bit about that.
Hut: Yes, let’s do that.
Craig: Landice is our most premier treadmill in our Fitness HQ stores and it’s incredible. We sell a ton of them. A lot of people don’t know the name because they’re used to seeing some of our other brands that you see in the clubs. But Landice is phenomenal. They really focus hard on the homes and making sure that you’ve got the quietest, softest suspension, best quality out there. They’re actually one of the last manufacturers left building these in the United States, in New Jersey.
Hut: Wow, which, with everything we hear these days, that’s important.
Craig: It is important because I think it’s important to support us, number one. And number two, where it’s important for the customer is that if I ever need anything, a part, we get it just like that. We never have any issues with Landice saying, “Well, it’s on back order,” or they have to import it from overseas. So that makes a huge, huge difference.
Hut: That’s awesome. They have a lifetime warranty?
Craig: That’s the other big thing. I think that’s why these guys sell so many of these too. They really back up their product. They’re the only manufacturer in the industry on the high-end level that actually has a lifetime warranty on all of their parts. I mean, that’s insane. Usually you’ve got anything from three to five to seven years, maybe ten on some of them, but this is lifetime on all the parts, which is amazing.
Hut: That’s really cool.
Craig: Yes. They’ve done a great job.
Hut: So anything specific about it that you want to go over?
Craig: One thing about Landice in general is that they’re incredibly responsive—more responsive than anything else that we’ve had. So when you walk up to this treadmill here, it’s real easy. You can hit the start button here. The increasing and decreasing of the speed when you use this machine—it responds faster than any other machine. So if you’re doing interval training, for instance, it gets right up to speed very quickly.
Hut: So you can navigate without having to just adjust your tempo.
Craig: Exactly, and that makes a big difference. You also have what we call Express Speed and Express Incline keys. Right here, you can just hit the number 1, 2, 3, 7…and it goes right to that speed. Again, just the fact that it’s very responsive, both with the speed and the elevation, has to do with the fact that they have a massive incline motor—a big, 4-horsepower motor for the speed. So you can increase and decrease that really, really nicely. But they just totally redesigned this treadmill.
Hut: It’s clean.
Craig: This is actually a brand new look and they’ve done an awesome job. Brand new consoles, new uprights—just a new, fresh look all over the place, which is just fantastic. It’s really, really cool what they’ve done with this treadmill.
Hut: That’s great, and of course it has all of the heart rate, interactive programming, all that.
Craig: Yes. All of that stuff is on there. You’ve actually got heart rate control built into it. You’ve got all the normal interval-training programs. They do a great job with their programming, but again, what Landice is really known for is that it’s an absolute work horse and at the end of the day, that’s why they can give you a lifetime warranty.
Hut: Exactly, because this is going to be around for a long time.
Hut: Great. Well, that’s the Landice treadmill and if you want to check it out, it’s in all the Fitness Headquarters locations and we look forward to you coming in and helping you find the best piece of equipment. All right, y’all, we look forward to sharing another fitness equipment review with you in the near future.
Craig: Yes, that will be awesome. Come see us.
Hut: Thank you.
