Just finished my tour in Afghanistan and traveled home to Indiana to finally Retire. Looked everywhere for a good quality gym to workout and treadmill for running. Found Hansen Fitness on the web and went to there shop. Great guys and purchased at a great price the floor model weight machine and the owner gave me a used Treadmill for Free. He stated that was for my service to my country, like he did. I do not give hugs often but did last week. With times like this, what the guys at Hansen Fitness did was honorable. Thanks from the bottom of my heart.

So sad an unidentified review gave so much false information to make me, Dale Hansen and Hansen Fitness Equipment look bad. Wow!! Could it be bad employees, who steel and take thousand of $$ from my wife and two investors do about a year later is write bad reviews. So sad to see Chris Umber and Ryan Valdez who signed Non-Compete go the next day after 6 years of hard work I personal did from up to 20hr days, 6 days a week and create lies like "I am a Marine so you need to trust me" and "The Non-Compete will not stand in Court if we put them out of business". Yes so sad. I lost from my last business partnership about $114k of my personal retirement accounts and investments & shut down Second Fitness. Yes, working for 2 years on a line of Cardio Equipment and co-engineering means thousands of hours in R&D, beta testing and outside investors to bring in a few containers to test and sell to dozens of High End Commercial & Home facilities, to then sell to the open public. After 100 units we have less than 2% failure, I guess that is cheap foreign equipment. And buy the way, HFE equipment is made from the sub-manufactures that make the same parts for LifeFitness, Precor, True, Paramount and many other US companies. Because the manufacture is based in US does not mean it is made here, just sometimes assembled here. And by-the-way our Custom Equipment is made right here in Fort Wayne, IN. Please unidentified reviewer get the truth and facts straight. Sincerely, Dale S. Hansen

Hansen Fitness brags on his website that for the past 2 years he has been developing his own equipment. How would he have money to pay for that??? Easy he ripped off all of his prior vendors by taking their products, reselling them and NEVER paying for them. Goes into "bankruptcy" and presto chango has "new" equipment to sell. So know when you are buying the cheap- made in a foreign country - equipment he sells - its off the dollars that were taken from good AMERICAN companies!!!

Shortly after starting Hansen Fitness, there was an opportunity to contribute to the redesign of some of Johnson Health Tech Co.'s Matrix equipment. The redesign worked out very well for the company and the improvements helped sales of the equipment by Hansen Fitness. We launched our own line of treadmill and elliptical equipment in September after two years of research and development, including beta testing at Summit City Fitness, Huntington YMCA, Sweetwater Sound, North American Van Lines, University of Saint Francis, University of Notre Dame and Indiana Tech. We are at various stages of obtaining eight patents and plan to launch some equipment based on those innovations this year. We also are adding a section to our Web site that will make it easy for customers to select all the features they want in their equipment as they order it online.

My friend told me about Hansen Fitness from the radio show she listens to on WBCL 90.3 FM. I thought they were a health club or personal trainer studio. They sell very expensive health club equipment but I found a used elliptical for $800 they sold to me. Same elliptical on-line for $1700 and new for $3899. They delivered later that day and a trainer scheduled by Saturday. If only my hair dresser was that fast. Hard to find in an Industrial area off the main road but worth my while. I would recommend them to anyone.
