Rodney Rice Continues Family Fitness Tradition with Fitness Expo

Metairie, LA / ACCESSWIRE / August 28, 2014 / Rodney Rice, local resident and fitness guru, continues his family's tradition of excellence in fitness equipment sales and education. The family business, Fitness Expo, was started by his father and was passed down to Rice. Owning and operating five stores in Louisiana, and one in Mississippi, Rice has expanded Fitness Expo and introduced the convenience of home fitness to a larger population.

The company was started by Rice's father, who noticed the lack of home fitness equipment available to non-commercial consumers, when trying to set up a home gym for his family. He founded Fitness Expo to allow consumers to access quality home exercise equipment. Rice has since expanded the business to accommodate commercial customers as well.

A variety of exercise equipment and accessories are available at Fitness Expo, including elliptical trainers, treadmills, bikes, rowers, and home gyms. The equipment is offered in a range of prices to fit every budget. With 30 years of experience, the team at Fitness Expo is ready and able to meet the needs of each customer, from a beginner to a seasoned athlete.

In keeping with family tradition, Rice and his team are knowledgeable in the latest fitness trends and technology. All locations carry the latest in fitness equipment, including the popular Lateral X elliptical trainer, and the Adaptive Motion Trainer (AMT). The Lateral X elliptical trainer increases lateral motion, engaging hip abductor/adductor muscles to burn more calories during a workout session. The AMT allows users to easily convert from walking to running, and climbing to lunging. Each of these machines has a small footprint, leaving more space in a home gym for movement and equipment.

Fitness Expo also offers residential and commercial customer services beyond equipment sales. They provide delivery and installation, in-home repair and setup service, commercial consultation and setup, and financing. Rodney Rice and his team continue the family tradition of excellence in customer service and fitness knowledge.
