With HUR USA’s recent birthday on June 21st,, it’s hard to believe that we have been in business for almost 30 years, and time has certainly flown! HUR initially started as a result of a research project at the University of Technology, Helsinki in 1989. Through this journey, HUR has been the leader in strength training equipment for aging adults, providing a wide range of solutions for seniors and giving them the strength to thrive. We continue to be a partner in the success of our clients, offering a full range of consulting services, from facility layout and design, to installation and training, to wellness programming and marketing.
Strength in Numbers
Since 1989, we have grown tremendously! With over 10,000 installations on five continents, HUR pneumatic (air resistance) strength training equipment is manufactured in Finland and distributed in well over 30 countries. The company has maintained close ties with the research community ever since, which means the latest findings are incorporated into HUR products, programs, software, and consulting services.
Powered by HUR’s 30 years of experience, evidence-based Scandinavian design and air resistance technology, industry-leading providers who choose HUR are equipped with premier strength training equipment and solutions for aging adults. HUR offers better results, enhanced customer satisfaction, and the marketing muscle their centers and clients need to thrive.
Nothing is stopping us from continuing to move forward into the future! Our journey as a pioneer in fitness equipment continues...
