With this year marking 29 years of NBA action in the Western Conference for the Dallas Mavericks, the franchise is preparing for a promising season with a state of the art fitness center featuring top of the line fitness equipment from leading manufacturer Nautilus, Inc. (NYSE: NLS). Looking to add to their Conference and Division titles, an 11- piece assortment of Nautilus equipment is being installed this month at the American Airlines Center, the arena the Mavericks call home. The hand picked assortment consists of five cardio units, including treadmills, upright and recumbent bikes, along with strength and free-weight products from Nautilus, the company synonymous with commercial fitness excellence.
"We use a high intensity training program to get our players ready for the season, and utilizing quality equipment is extremely important to that process," said Head Coach Rick Carlisle. "As our partner, Nautilus has provided the Mavs with the best fitness equipment in the business."
The agreement involves furnishing the facility with the latest Nautilus equipment and granting prospective Nautilus customers access, by appointment only, to the fitness center during off-peak times.
