Let’s play the GymValet version of “Where’s Waldo!
Recently, my good friend, Dr. Franklin Marcus, sent me a clipping from the Health section of the December 11th edition of the San Francisco Chronicle. Dr. Marcus wanted me to read an excerpt from a medical news brief. I couldn’t help but notice on the same page was a fitness related article with a color picture of two people walking on treadmills. I immediately noticed that all of the treadmills were Woodways, and there, proudly attached to the Woodway Curves on the left side of the picture were two GymValets (Photo by: LM Otero/Associated Press)! Check it out!!
I have to admit whenever I see articles about fitness centers and/or equipment I look at the pictures for GymValets. It’s my personal/professional equivalent of trying to spot Waldo in Martin Hanford’s drawings (Where’s Waldo?). It always brings a smile to my face when I “spot” GymValets. Sometimes I expect to find them–I directly sold the GymValets to the facility being highlighted. Other times I’m pleasantly surprised–the GymValets may have been purchased from, or supplied by, one of my distribution or OEM partners (such as Woodway treadmills).
The bottom line is, GymValets = Clean and Safe Equipment; it’s great to see them out there. And, selfishly, it’s still thrilling to see something that was just an “idea” of mine, less than 10 years ago, changing and improving the way exercisers clean and sanitize exercise equipment all over the world!
