CYBEX Products Take Center Stage at IHRSA Show.

MEDWAY, Mass. -- Cybex International, Inc. (AMEX: CYB), a leading exercise equipment manufacturer, debuted a design upgrade to their premier Eagle strength line at last week's International Health, Racquet & Sportsclub Association's (IHRSA) annual convention which was held in Las Vegas, NV, March 20-23, 2006. With the recent launch of the CYBEX VR3 strength line and the addition of the Eagle upgrade, CYBEX commanded a strong presence at the IHRSA show with their resistance strength training equipment lines.

The IHRSA organization celebrated their 25th anniversary at the convention and tradeshow last week, which boasted recorded-setting attendance numbers, and it definitely showed in the CYBEX booth. With the company's strong family of cardio products, including the Arc Trainer, Cyclone bikes and Pro+ treadmills, coupled with the new additions to their strength line including VR3 and the brand new Eagle upgrade, Art Hicks, CYBEX Executive V.P. and COO stated, "The IHRSA show was a success for CYBEX not because of one single reason, but because of one united team. The commitment behind our products is the same commitment from the team of industry professionals that backs the reputation and excellence for which this company stands for."

Ray Giannelli, CYBEX Sr. V.P. of Research and Development stated, "We had 42 individual pieces of equipment in our booth that had never been seen before by the IHRSA audience! The upgrade to the Eagle line, the new VR3 strength line and our light commercial 425T treadmill took center stage at the IHRSA trade show. CYBEX's heritage stems from our strength training equipment, and it dominated in our display of new equipment at the show." One of CYBEX's guiding principals is to meet the needs of fitness enthusiasts and professionals through function, performance and results. CYBEX does this through superior technology and a passion for fitness which is backed by exhaustive research in human biomechanics and decades of experience in sports medicine and fitness R&D. "If club members and end users demand superior results, CYBEX is clearly the only choice. We expand the training possibilities and accommodate a wider client population, which is just the tipping point of how CYBEX is reshaping what people believe fitness equipment can do," stated Ed Pryts, CYBEX's V.P. of North America Sales.
