To meet the need for heart rate monitoring in fitness training, Brewer's Ledge has quipped every Treadwall® rotating climbing wall with a Polar® heart rate receiver that is built inside the wall. The information from a climber's chest strap or other monitor is automatically acquired and shown on the digital display. The highly readable display is eye level to climbers, showing heart rate, distance and elapsed time. Trainers appreciate their new ability to work closely with clients, adjusting the Treadwall's speed and angle to best suit their client's heart rate.

Hampton Fitness Inc. has extended its Dura-Bell line of fixed dumbbells into the barbell market with Dura-Bar. Dura-Bar fixed barbells have a patented design that makes them virtually maintenance-free. The bar is permanently fixed to the heads, which puts an end to tightening loose plates. The bar is solid steel, with a hardened chrome coating that resists cracking or peeling. Because the heads are hexagonal, the barbells don't roll, and the thick, virgin-rubber encasement on the heads minimizes the risk of damage to floors and equipment.
