Eegad, has it already been almost a month since I posted my first “Retailer Review” here on TreadmillSensei.Com? Wow.
Today, in honor of our fast-approaching 2-year anniversary I’ve got a note we received recently from a reader who last took a look at our website back in the very beginning. Joe picked up a remanufactured Precor unit based on our recommendation back in 2006. Let’s see what he has to say. Take it away, Joe!
Dear Treadmill Sensei,
Its nice to see your still around. I read your pages a couple of years ago back when I was looking for an elliptical for my home. I had been working out at a local 24-hour fitness and just wasnt having it and didn’t want to give up the feel of a gym elliptical. Like a lot of people I just didn’t have the money for a brand new precor elliptical from busybody. Looking on google I found a place called www.Fitness909.com and saw they had the best prices I could see for remanufactured precor ellipticals. The precor 544 elliptical I bought showed up in about 2 weeks and looked like it was new and came right off the floor at busybody. I can’t believe I almost paid $2000 more for a new elliptical. Tony at www.Fitness909.com was very helpful and a nice to. Two years later and the precor they sent me still works as good it did on the first day in my house. I hope you dont mind an old customer writeing in to say hello. – Joe
Thanks for the great note. www.Fitness909.com is actually about 35-40 miles away from us here at the DOJO and we are indeed very familiar with those guys. The shop is run by Tony Mule and his wife, Barbara. Tony has been in the fitness business since the 70s when he started out with Jack Lalanne. There are few people in the fitness industry who know as much about the equipment as Tony does.
While Fitness 909 does sell a lot of new equipment (Esprit, Spirit, Bodycraft, York), they are actually better known as the producers of some of the best remanufactured or refurbished commercial treadmills and ellipticals available. In fact, they do the remanufacturing work for a lot of the larger online and offline retailers. Chances are if you’ve purchased a high quality remanufactured Precor or Life Fitness elliptical that it came from their shop. Their remanufacturing process is top-notch and a lot of their reman Precor ellipticals could pass for brand new. Because they are the source for a lot of the remanufactured equipment available, they are able to keep their prices down below what everyone else charges on the internet and, if you’re looking for a rock-bottom price on a remanufactured commercial grade treadmill or elliptical, then they are the place to check out. More than likely they’ll be able to beat any price out there on the internet for new, remanufactured or used fitness equipment. They also ship nationwide at some of the lowest rates around.
Almost as good as their pricing is how knowledgable and darn sweet the owners are. Tony and Barb will go above and beyond in their customer service because Fitness 909 is their family-run business and they take the utmost pride in what they do. For an absolute class act, check out www.Fitness909.com…and mention the Treadmill Sensei sent you with the Coupon Code TMSENSEI and save an additional 3% on any order you place.
Thanks again for the note, Joe, and I’m glad you like your Precor!
