Gear Up For Summer at Mettler
Mettler Center is pleased to announce that our new equipment, which include four treadmills and three ellipticals, has finally
arrived! Your response to the new equipment has been overwhelming, and we
really appreciate your support.
We're well aware the equipment
was to be delivered in January, and we'd like to apologize
for any inconveniences and frustrations this may have caused. Several part suppliers for Star Trac went out of business, and many OrthoTech
(our distributor) shipments were delayed.
We were in contact with the OrthoTech president throughout the process, and he
also expresses his apologies for the delay in getting our new equipment to us.
We hope you'll stop by the Mettler Center in the coming weeks to try out
our new equipment as you continue on your journey to Whole Life Fitness.
