  • Patent number: 10016652
    Abstract: A shared workstation apparatus with converging treadmills including treadmills with centerlines that are transversely oriented towards each other at an angle, which can for example be an acute angle. The shared workstation includes a frame, a first treadmill, a second treadmill, and at least one shared work surface located above the treadmills. The orientation of the treadmills and the shared work surface allows users to share work with each other across the shared work space.

  • Patent number: 9682267
    Abstract: An exercise device including a housing with first and second ends and a longitudinal axis extending therebetween. A bore is defined in the housing and a disc member is located within the bore. The disc member includes a side surface extending between first and second surfaces, said side surface being generally parallel to the longitudinal axis. An aperture is defined in the disc member and extends between the first and second surfaces. The aperture is bounded and defined by a face that extends between the first and second surfaces of the disc member. A friction-reducing material is provided on the face. A first resilient member extends between the first and second ends of the housing and passes through the aperture. An aperture adjustment member may be engaged with an enlarged end of the resilient member to retain the same in the aperture in the disc member.

  • Patent number: 9630048
    Abstract: A variable resistance band assembly may include a first end and a second end spaced apart from the first end. Additionally, a first disc is proximate the first end defining a plurality of holes arranged in a pattern extending through the first disc, and a second disc is stacked adjacent the first disc along an assembly axis, the second disc defining a plurality of holes arranged in a similar pattern to that of the first disc and axially aligned therewith. A connector is proximate the second end and a first resilient member is releasably attached to the connector and extending through one aligned hole in the first and second discs and releasably attached to the first disc.

  • Patent number: 9555278
    Abstract: A fitness station and resistance band assembly and a method of using the same. The station includes a base; a support extending upwardly from the base; a first arm extending outwardly from the support; and a plurality of attachment members provided on one or more of the base, the support or the first arm. The assembly is selectively engageable with one of the attachment members and is operable to apply a resistive force during a performance of an exercise. The assembly includes a housing that is at least partially rigid and a first resilient member for providing the resistive force located within the housing. The assembly is attached to one of the attachment members on the fitness station. A pulling motion is applied to the assembly during the performance of an exercise. A resistive force is generated within the assembly in response to the applied pulling motion.

  • Patent number: 9555280
    Abstract: An attachment assembly for an exercise device and a method of using the same. The device includes a first end and a second end; a first J-hook defining a portion of the second end; and a second J-hook defining a portion of the second end; wherein the first and second J-hooks are releasably attach the device to a separate exercise structure. The method includes providing a ring on the exercise structure, wherein the ring defines an aperture; affecting relative movement of the ring relative to an exercise assembly, defining a gap between two inverted J-hooks; positioning the ring in the gap beneath two ends of the J-hooks; affecting a relative rotation of the ring relative to the two J-hooks such that the ring is beneath a J-hook passageway defined by a downwardly facing concave surface on each J-hook; and engaging the ring with the concave surface on each J-hook.
