I received your thank you card; although it was not necessary, it was very much appreciated. I thought I would take this time to briefly summarize my purchase experience at your Algonquin location.
I fractured my fibula in December, and while still in an air cast I decided to purchase a recumbent exercise bike for future rehab purposes. After visiting the normal sports equipment chains, I noticed your store online. On my initial visit I was assisted by Bill Rockow, who not only demonstrated the features, advantages and benefits of the recumbent bikes that you sell, but also provided an overview of other types of fitness equipment that would help me reach my exercise goal. Although you equipment was more expensive than my budget of ~$500, the benefits outweighed the cost.
This brings me to the Octane Seated Elliptical. Since I was in a cast during my first visit at the store, my wife sampled the ride on my behalf. She is a nurse and former college athlete, so I completely trust her opinion. She was very impressed with all of the attributes of the XR6, and clearly visualized the near-term, and long-term benefits. Once my air cast was off, I visited with Bill again to try the equipment for myself. Obviously, I too saw the benefit over a traditional recumbent bike, but the cost was still a major factor. We finally decided to increase the budget and purchase the XR6e, but needed a lot of help from Bill to make the purchase affordable. Needless to say, we found common ground on the price, and we made the purchase.
The unit was delivered and set-up yesterday, and the team from TransMotion was efficient, and professional. So far, there are absolutely no disappointments, and we are starting to customize the settings to meet our fitness goals. I also purchased a monitor stand for the unit, which should arrive in a week. I am very happy that this accessory is available, and looking forward to the installation.
Lastly, I want to reiterate the outstanding job that Bill did. My wife and I are former owners for a Relax the Back franchise which sells high-end neck and back care products; so we truly understand the value of talented associates. You have a good one in Bill!
Thank you again for the card, and best regards,
I received not one but TWO thank you notes for my recent purchase from your St. Louis Park store (one from our salesman and one from yourself). I have been so impressed with my experience with your company that I felt obliged to send a note.
I purchased a Hoist gym and a Vision exercise bike from your St. Louis Park store last weekend. My dad has been a customer of yours for years, and when I mentioned I was in the market for a couple of pieces of new equipment, he suggested I check you out. My son and I went in to your store and were totally impressed. Logan LaBelle worked with us and he was probably the best salesperson I have ever worked with on any purchase.
I have previously purchased exercise equipment from Sears and Costco and will NEVER do that again. I will be in the market for a new treadmill in the next couple of years, and I know that I will be heading back to your store in St. Louis Park for that purchase.
You run a solid company. I am overwhelmingly impressed.
This has been my first major purchase at 2ndwind, and I would certainly consider your company for any future fitness equipment purchases. I would also recommend that any of my friends who are considering fitness equipment check out 2ndwind. Continue reading
It shows that you really do understand and know the ramifications of what good customer service is... Continue reading
Before making the purchase I went home and researched treadmills more than I would like to admit. Mark answered every single question and pointed us to the LifeSpan 3000e. My wife and yes, even myself have been using the treadmill for about a week now. She has logged many more miles on it than I have and loves it. I am 6’4, 250 lbs. and it has proven to be extremely sturdy. I would highly recommend this treadmill! Please share my email with Mark and congratulate him for a job well done. Like I said, I would have undoubtedly purchased a treadmill off of Amazon or Costco if it hadn’t of been for Mark. You have a great store, but most of all great people. Continue reading
Ben Stephens did a fantastic job of helping us with these choices and in identifying a real packaged solution for us. He made the effort to make sure we understood the equipment, our needs, our space requirements and our options.....all on a dreary, cold Sunday afternoon.....all after closing time no less.

Mike knew every question we had before we even asked. Mike could sense my wife's desire to get the treadmill in our house asap and he located one in stock across town. We were able to pick it up an hour later and run on it that night. Continue reading

The sales experience was 100% perfect in every way from the time I entered the store to the time I left. I was greeted with a warm hello as soon as I walked in the door.
