In a screen-friendly world, Echelon is working to ensure that its fitness equipment delivers a studio-quality experience for users.

On Echelon cardio machines, for example, members can opt for live and on-demand coach-led classes, participate in a virtual competition with Echelon Worlds, take a scenic tour, train freestyle or simply enjoy streaming entertainment from apps such as Netflix, Hulu, YouTube TV, Disney and more, which is available through Echelon’s new proprietary FitOS software,

“Gyms are ecstatic with Echelon’s newest products and tech with advanced self-updating software,” Lentine added. “This technology gives commercial gym owners frequent updates and access to new features and advancements, ensuring a consistent and reliable machine experience while providing members with the latest gym technology.”
