Aphelion's Fitness Management Software lets clubs monitor every facet of their business, from the front-counter check-in to the back office. This brochure offers details on the company's programs, including member services, sales and marketing management, accounting and operations. In addition, Aphelion's software includes special tools to automate tasks such as printing bar-code hang tags, applying late fees and tagging members.

Body Bar
The Body Bar Product Guide and Order Form features storage units, varying weight bars, club packages, and the “Master Your Body” video series, as well as the “Express” series. The Body Bar (available in 4 to 36 pound weights) is constructed of solid steel and features an easy-grip, durable rubber coating and end caps. All bars are black and less than 2 inches in diameter.

BodyPump/The Step Co.
Don Oliver Barbell is the only barbell manufacturer licensed to carry the BodyPump name. New Zealand's own iron sands reportedly provide the basis for the iron core which sets like steel and is almost twice the density of concrete. The iron core is covered by quality German polyethylene. These weights never rust, chip, need repainting, and are quiet and easy on the floor, states the company.

Checkfree Corp. offers custom-designed solutions for improving cash flow (up to 26 percent), reducing billing costs (as much as 80 percent) and increasing customer retention (up to 22 percent) via a comprehensive electronic payment processing system, according to the company. In addition, the company claims to reduce delinquency rates as much as 78 percent.

The Modular System from ClubRunner reportedly embodies all the management features an operator needs to run a club efficiently. The modules include guests, utilities, members, daily backup, inventory and front desk. Real-time processing automatically updates all data throughout the system when the user posts entries. Security is assured when the user assigns passwords for levels of access.

The Exerflex Aerobic Floor System is made of a 7/8-inch beech hardwood, which provides durability and strength. It is prefinished with an aerobic traction polyurethane designed for precise footing. The boards meet at a tongue-and-groove joint and are held together by a spring steel clip, allowing the floor to flex upon impact. At the point of the impact, the 3/4-inch foam underlayment absorbs the shock.

Fitness First
With categories that cover everything from kickboxing to water exercise to wellness products and weight room flooring, the catalog from Fitness First offers a wide range of products for health and fitness facilities. The company's latest catalog offers more than 100 new products, and includes the Omron Body Logic Pro Fat Analyzer.

Iron Grip
Iron Grip has released a new and expanded brochure for the IGX line of free-weight equipment. The new literature includes the original IGX pro-style dumbbells and fixed barbells, as well as the IGX Olympic plates that feature Iron Grip's patented opposing grip design. New to this brochure are IGX neoprene dumbbells, as well as hard chrome Olympic bars, beauty bells and a complete cable attachment line.

Magnum's Biangular mechanism reportedly creates perfect form through multi-joint, multi-plane movement patterns. This patented technology has been incorporated into Magnum's selectorized and plate-loaded equipment, and is highlighted in the company's latest product catalog. With nothing more than a seat adjustment (in most cases), Magnum Biangular can deliver perfect form for every repetition for any user, according to the company.
