LOL, my old boss is going to be so happy. I used to work at a fitness store and we sold Precor and Landice treadmills. There was a fitness store down the street that sold Cybex. I'm sure that right now he's going to be telling everyone about the recall so they buy the Precor and Landice treadmills.
