22 Apr At Home Fitness has treadmills to go!
Arizona’s fitness leader helping people stay fit by selling carry out specialty fitness equipment at record rates.

PHOENIX, Arizona – Longtime At Home Fitness general manager Jaime Janman said the last two weeks have been “like Black Friday Sales – times 10.”
The coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has changed life for people in ways that are unprecedented in our lifetime. Much of the country is on some form of lockdown, leaving their homes only for essential jobs, trips for medical appointments or groceries.
The shutdowns include public gyms.
That’s led to an influx of people turning to At Home Fitness’ four Arizona superstores, along with its online site www.athomefitness.com, to purchase all kinds exercise equipment for their homes. People want to stay in shape –and relieve stress – during the lockdown.
Two weeks ago At Home Fitness put out its biggest order in the store’s history, and even that hasn’t been enough to satisfy demand. Fox 10 Phoenix’s Bailey Miller visited the At Home Fitness Scottsdale Superstore (6969 E Shea Blvd., Arizona, 85254, phone 480-951-6951) recently, where she interviewed Janman about the huge increase in demand for home gym equipment.
“It’s not like toilet paper where everyone is hoarding them, but stuff is flying off the shelves,” Janman told Fox 10 Phoenix. “People are stressed out more than ever and people are needing that release, it seems like we have become that product.”
Dumbbells have been shipped out of the stores almost as fast as they can be boxed up.
Treadmills, rowing machines, ellipticals, exercise bikes and home gyms are selling faster than ever, too. Call At Home Fitness at 1-800-940-1022 to speak with a sales associate to find out what equipment is best for you and your budget, as well as up to date information on availability.
At Home Fitness employees hope they can provide as much relief as possible during these tough times.
“I hate the circumstance is what it is, but we are trying to help people out,” said Janman.
At Home Fitness will stay open as long as it can. They are sanitizing any equipment after it’s been touched, and they are monitoring each other’s health.
The At Home Fitness Superstore Advantage

Here are the need to know details about this virus:
Symptoms for coronavirus COVID-19 include fever, coughing, and shortness of breath. These, of course, are similar to the common cold and flu.
Expect a common cold to start out with a sore or scratchy throat, cough, runny and/or stuffy nose. Flu symptoms are more intense and usually come on suddenly, and can include a high fever.
Symptoms of COVID-19 may appear more slowly. They usually include fever, a dry cough and noticeable shortness of breath, according to the World Health Organization. A minority of cases develop pneumonia, and the disease is especially worrisome for the elderly and those with other medical problems such as high blood pressure, obesity, diabetes or heart conditions.
Right now there’s one big difference between flu and coronavirus: A vaccine exists to help prevent the flu and it’s not too late to get it. It won’t protect you from catching the coronavirus, but may put you in a better position to fight it.
To protect yourself, wash your hands well and often, keep them away from your face, and avoid crowds and standing close to people.
And if you do find yourself showing any of these flu or coronavirus symptoms – don’t go straight to your doctor’s office. That just risks making more people sick, officials urge. Call ahead, and ask if you need to be seen and where.
