Long Beach, CA (19th Jun, 2015) Powertec, a leader in Plate-Loaded Home Gyms, acquired most of the intellectual property of Muscle Dynamics, including, but not limited to, the Maxicam & Muscle Dynamics brands & designs of the Dynamax line from Oscar Leon, President & CEO of Muscle Dynamics, for an undisclosed sum.
Muscle Dynamics was started in 1971 to build anatomically correct fitness machines that would last a lifetime of use. For almost 45 years, the Maxicam branded machines have been used in hard-core gyms such as Gold’s Gym & World Gym to mainstream gyms like Bally Total Fitness & 24 Hour Fitness.
The acquisition will solidify Powertec’s presence in the light commercial & specialty gym marketplace. Powertec’s President, Wayne Lee, said, “We have been interested in solidifying our position in specialty gyms as we have in specialty retail. This acquisition allows us to take the ergonomic designs of Maxicam & integrate it into our ability to manufacture high quality products at a price point that will be interesting to the specialty local gyms competing against the larger membership chains.”
