About Treadmill Doctor
In 1998 Clark & Jon Stevenson faced a dilemma. You see, both Clark and Jon were in graduate school. Jon was studying to become the next great economist and Clark was trying to decide the meaning of his navel. The problem was that, while graduate school is great, it doesn’t pay great. Between Clark’s family and Jon’s taste for living the good life, the funds tended to run ridiculously low. Being industrious, however, Clark came up with an idea that Jon quickly embraced. Let’s fix broken exercise equipment! To understand how this came about one only has to look at the history of these two brothers. In their youth both Clark & Jon worked for a hustler that sold fitness and exercise equipment. He hired both of them while in high school and poof...they were instant repair men. Of course neither of the brothers knew anything about fixing fitness equipment, but they learned rapidly. The brothers then went their separate ways but managed to work for various fitness stores and fitness equipment manufacturers in the meantime.
It was during this time that they learned how little they actually knew about exercise equipment. Frankly it was a revelation. In working with engineers at the manufacturing plants the brothers found out that the engineers wanted to produce equipment that would cost a little and sell for a lot. They never really worried how the equipment would hold up. The next big gimmick, the next big sales hit was all that the company management would care about. The guys thought that this was a hell of a way to run a business (sarcasm included)!
Years later the brothers finally ended up in graduate school when Clark’s idea finally hit. Knowing the quality of most repair people in the fitness business, or the lack thereof, Clark knew that someone who knew what they were doing would be a big hit! Jon being a good leech knew a good thing when he saw it! The rest is history.
