July 12, 2017 — Core Health & Fitness has recalled about 3,600 Inspiration® pulley exercise machines after 31 people were injured.
The problem is that the height-adjusting carriage assembly can loosen and fall on the consumer, posing an impact and injury hazard.
There have been 48 reports of the height-adjusting carriages loosening and falling, resulting in 31 reports of injuries, including cuts that required stables or stitches.
The recall involves about 3,600 exercise machines in five styles of Inspiration® Cable Cross Over and Dual Adjustable Pulley machines. They were installed primarily in fitness centers and gyms.
The following exercise machines are affected by the recall:
- Core Inspiration Dual Adjustable Pulley
- Core Inspiration Cable Cross Over 9 Station
- Core Inspiration Cable Cross Over 5 Station
- Core Inspiration Cable Cross Over
- Core Inspiration Cable Cross Over 14
The units are stainless steel adjustable pulleys with single hand adjustment designs and high-low cable positioning components.
“Inspiration” is printed on each Dual Adjustable Pulley model, and “Star Trac” or “Nautilus” is printed on the Cable Cross Over models.
The exercise machines were sold at Core dealerships nationwide from November 2010 through April 2017, and by Unisen distributors from 2001 to 2010, for between $2,700 and $8,400.
The manufacturer is offering a free onsite repair and asking consumers to immediately stop using the recalled exercise machines.
