COURT ACKNOWLEDGES DAMAGES TO NORDICTRACK BY FITNESS QUEST

 CHASKA, Minn., March 9 /PRNewswire/ -- In a March 2 judgment, a district court acknowledged that NordicTrack is entitled to damages for actions by competitor Fitness Quest through its misleading advertisements. These actions were previously enjoined by the court in a ruling issued on Oct. 18, 1991. As part of the March 2 judgment, the court's order expanded that ruling requiring additional disclaimers on a multi-page mailer which has been used by Fitness Quest for direct response purposes. The decision stated that "the plaintiff (NordicTrack) is entitled to some award of monetary damages," which will be determined when the case actually goes to trial.
 The judgment also specifically allowed NordicTrack to continue to use the claim that "seven out of 10 NordicTrack skier owners still use their skiers." This means that the court does not enjoin NordicTrack from using such claims acquired from market study based research.
 "This judgment is a reaffirmation of NordicTrack's important place in the marketplace," stated Jim Bostic, president and CEO. "We are proud to say that our studies prove over and over again that NordicTrack stands for quality, integrity and customer satisfaction."
 NordicTrack is a CML company.
