Taipei City, Taiwan, November 15, 2018 --(PR.com)-- AeroHike Incline Treadmill, the latest innovation of JK Fitness was recently honored as a winner of the 2019 Taiwan Excellence Award, the most prestigious award in Taiwan organized by The Ministry of Economic Affairs. AeroHike was recognized among thousands of applicants as a high value-added product based on indicators of R&D, design, quality, and marketing.

Following the 2017 Taiwan Excellence Award granted for AeroWork Desk Treadmill, the encouraging news again shows JK’s competence in technology, innovation, and marketing capabilities. Incline training is an effective way to tone the muscles in different ways, adding more variety to daily workouts. JK’s AeroHike incline treadmill is designed to lower the stress on the knees and joints for longer periods of exercise. Just a 3-degree incline reduces shock to legs by about 25%. 5 times the calories are burned compare with jogging on a flat level at same speed.

"This is an exciting and monumental occasion for JK. We are proud that AeroHike was selected by worldwide professionals and judges for its innovation and excellence. Climbing at limited speed prolongs the workout period thanks to less loading on leg and knees, greatly improve cardiovascular, strengthen muscular endurance and tone major lower body muscles. Apart from the general functions of a treadmill, AeroHike especially enhances the benefits of climbing. No matter your fitness goals are to burn more calories, tone muscles, improve cardiovascular endurance, AeroHike will get you there!" said Sherry Hsu, the marketing director at JK Fitness.

AeroHike’s "3-in-1" design combines functions of walking, climbing and running. The interchangeable Running/Climbing mode buttons offer mandatory safe workout experiences with limited speed and inclination ranges in each mode. Unlike traditional treadmill requiring a helper to tilt the heavy machine to adjust the stabilizers back and forth for leveling or transportation, the patented Switch-Pro allows effort-saving 360 degree moving and leveling of the 100 kg heavy machine, merely by one hand. One of the most unique function of AeroHike is the E.M.T.A.I Heart Rate Reserve (HRR) program, which provides 5 training zones considering each user’s resting heart rate that is more accurate to personal fitness level than traditional HRC programs that count on user’s age only. The console is designed with Patented Step-Count, LUBE Alert and Cool Down Button to immediately lower the intensity whenever necessary for user-friendly workout experiences.

As a Taiwan-based manufacturer, we have been devoted to developing high value-added products with innovation and technology to get out of the severe price war, as well as supporting our global partners to be distinguished from their competitors,” said Victor Chen, the founder of JK Fitness.
