As part of our continued look into the major companies who make the products that keep us happy and healthy, we have turned our attention to Californian-based company Paradigm.

Paradigm has numerous brands under their umbrella, many of which are makers of treadmills that are great for walking & running, and other innovative fitness products that we love and we think you will too.

You may have heard of some of Paradigm’s brands; Iron Man, Workfit, Progear, Fitness Reality, and Exerpeutic.  They also offer an app for tracking progress called MyCloudFitness.

All Paradigm brands products are made in China, but the company itself is American.  Today we want to take a closer look at these brands, and what they have to offer the fitness enthusiast in terms of treadmills, as well as other practical home fitness products.

PARADIGM BRANDS

At the moment, the Iron Man brand offers a full range of gym and home fitness equipment from exercise bikes, training cycles, strength training, power cages, and many other items you’ll find in the gym.

By the name, you’d expect Iron Man to focus mainly on fitness products that will turn you into a sculpted Greek god or goddess, and it’s true that they do have many such products, but did you know Iron Man also has a great kids line of products called Ironkids, which focuses more on fun stuff for kids to enjoy like this fitness playground ?


EXERPEUTIC by WORKFIT

exerpeutic-workfit

Exerpeutic and Workfit seem like they might be two different brands, but our understanding is that they are closely aligned, with Exerpeutic products being brought to you by Workfit.  As such, we can’t help but see them as one fitness entity.

The main focus of Exerpeutic and Workfit is to manufacture treadmills for home use, but as the name implies, the Workfit are the “working” treadmills that specifically incorporate the standing desk within them.

Hence you can literally, jog on, whilst continuing with your daily business.  This helps to combat a lot of sitting and lethargy, which is something needed in today’s sedentary society.

These are a big trend amongst office workers everywhere (with understanding bosses and thick carpets) who want to burn a few calories, stay fit and still manage to put in an eight hour shift.

Here below you will find most of the Exerpeutic Treadmills which are out there today.  Exerpeutic treadmills specialize in walking, and also many of them you can fold up and store easily.

As we said earlier, Workfit and Exerpeutic are inextricably linked.  However, Workfit does have its own line of fitness related products, including a wide variety of great treadmills for home use.

Here are some from that line that are great for both promoting mobility, and losing weight if you’re ready to push yourself a little bit.  The great thing is, with many of these, you can actually get work done at the same time, which is precisely the point here.

Progear are an enigma as they appear not to have a separate website which is currently reachable from the main Paradigm website.  Likely, it is in the works,so be sure to check back.

Also, in reviewing these treadmills, we noticed that they may be very close cousins of the Exerpeutic brand.  Close, but not actual DNA matches!

The Progear brand motto is “Stay Fit, Spend Less” and is the go-to budget brand of Paradigm.

These are great for home use and for those not wanting to shell out thousands on a treadmill for the home.
