Smooth Fitness Halts Operations

The original Internet-only treadmill brand andsmooth-fitness company, Smooth Fitness, has shut down most of their operations pending a sale of the company. The company is no longer taking new orders and, according to customers, not providing warranty service.

The business was bought in late 2012 by the private equity firm Larsen McColl, but, according the Smooth President Rich Hebert, Larsen McColl has chosen not to invest more money in the company, despite its being profitable.  Hebert says that Smooth is not filing for bankruptcy and is entertaining offers from qualified buyers.

    I bought a Smooth Elliptical in late July 2012. Now it has been purchased but the new company is not honoring the warranty. What was the terms of the purchase and should Icon honor my warranty that I paid for.

    Your warranty was from Smooth Fitness. ICON just bought their assets, not their liabilities such as warranty obligations. Therefore, ICON appears to have no obligation to honor the Smooth warranties. We are not aware of any recourse for you. Sorry!
