Read below what a few AEE customers have to say about us.
"I have known Tim Cluny for a long time, the sales rep who assisted us throughout in designing our new weight room and choosing the proper equipment. We have become friends because of his interest and support of area high school coaches and student/athletes. By no exaggeration, it is because of Tim's support we have been able to develop the exceptional program we have today. He takes a personal interest in the people he works with and continues to follow-up to ensure you are pleased and continue to be serviced. Over the past 30+ years as a high school S&C coach I have dealt with many in the industry but NONE better. We will continue our relationship for as long as we are both in the business."
- Kevin Kinney. Strength Training Coach.
"One of the biggest challenges we faced in designing our weight room was space. We used Hammer Strength HD Elite Combo Racks with Platforms to combat the space issues and to create an open feeling while gaining more lifting stations. We are very please with the end result... " Read More »
"Our weight room is beautiful and functional at the same time. We are now able to safely train large groups of athletes efficiently. The uniformity of the equipment and wood platform inserts with the school logo really makes the weight room outstanding!" Collapse
- Thomas Perrault. Director of Athletics.
"We are so happy & pleased with our new fitness center, it is such an upgrade and it meets our patients needs perfectly."
- Shelbi Bahena. Cardiac Rehab Manager.

- Ted Blake. Athletic Director & Barbara Munderloh. Buyer.

- Cam Brown. Strength Coach.
"The UCLA Recreation Department undertook a large and much needed fitness center expansion project many years ago. We worked closely with members of the Advanced Exercise team in planning this new space. They were a great resource for us in helping select the best equipment for our students, faculty and staff. Advanced Exercise has a great team of fitness professionals who we rely on for a great deal of our fitness needs. I can trust the people and the Life Fitness and Hammer Strength products they represent. It is a pleasure to work with Advanced Exercise!"
- Elisa Terry NSCA-CSCS. Fit Well Program Director.
"I know in dealing with Bob Dicandia he will take care of every detail and keep me in the loop along the way, from beginning to end."
- Jim Morgan. Assistant Fire Chief.
"When looking in to furnishing our new weight room, Tim Cluny and Advanced Exercise Equipment were far superior to the competition. Tim was helpful in every way possible from the selection of equipment to the layout of the room. Our community could not be any happier with the quality of the equipment, while our student body has great pride in knowing that we have the best weight room in the area. There is no doubt that all future projects will go through Tim Cluny and Advanced Exercise Equipment."
- Todd Burris. PE Teacher/Head Baseball Coach.
"Being the only Community Recreation Center in Mesa County with a population of around 150,000, we knew our fitness equipment purchases needed to be durable and fit a wide range of the population, while not breaking our budget. Our Advanced Exercise representative, Laura Emrich, was right there helping us evaluate and understand each piece of fitness equipment recommended..." Read More »
"She took the time to understand our community and what our goals were. She then helped us put together a complete fitness plan that would take a lot of use, last a long time, and serve a wide range of the population. Our patrons constantly comment on the great choice of equipment we selected and that is due to the exceptional equipment and service we received from Laura and Advanced Exercise." Collapse
- Ture Nycum. Recreation Director.
"We are so happy with the overall look, feel and function of the Life Fitness products in our facility. I love the streamline look of the signature series pieces. The service and training after the initial purchase is wonderful, just what I had hoped for as I looked for equipment."

"Bob Dicandia is great to work with because he always shoots me the truth and I know he will follow up and do what he promises."
- James Tonda. Wellness and Safety Coordinator.
"At Pittsburg State University we have about 90% of our cardio equipment with Life Fitness the rest with Pre-core and Concept II. We opened a new rec center in June 2008 and I had the opportunity to purchase all of the cardio and strength equipment for this facility. I looked at most of the top cardio companies out there: Pre-core, Cybex, Star-Trac, Woodway and Nautilus and though each of them had certain pieces that were top of the line they didn't seem to have the whole package. With that said, Life Fitness became our vendor of choice. This allowed us to work with their platinum dealer, Advanced Exercise Equipment... " Read More »
Another major selling point for AEE was the factory tour! If you get the opportunity to take a Life Fitness factory tour with them you must do it. You will see the quality of their products and the people that build those products! Their assembly line employees take a lot of pride in what they produce. Also during the factory tour you get to see their testing area where they test their products to failure and then break them down to see what parts failed so they know what part to design better. You will see the engineer design team and how they design their products to last longer and have a more natural body range of motion.
Last but definitely not least; their product is made here in the USA and their service is impeccable. The few times we have needed replacement parts, the parts are here within a few days so our equipment is never out of service for an extended period of time. Their repair technicians know the equipment, so they are in and out in no time and we are back online. My experience with Life Fitness and Advanced Exercise Equipment is that they care about the businesses that buy their equipment. They are constantly checking on me asking on how things are going and for input on the equipment. Advanced Exercise Equipment has shown me that they will not take your money and then forget about you, like some businesses out there. I would be more than happy to speak with you if you have any questions. " Collapse
- Vince Daino. Director Campus Recreation.
"As one of the leading homebuilders in the country, our homeowners expect a high level of quality. Advanced Exercise Equipment was the key in the success of our two-story fitness club at our Anavia condominium project in Anaheim, CA. From the design of the Core Training Room and full Fitness Club experience to equipment delivery and installation, I found John Zychowicz and the Advanced Exercise Equipment team to be extremely detailed and professional. Best of all, they were sensitive to our deadlines and met the demands required to achieve truly tremendous results."
- Thomas DiPrima. Executive Vice President.
"Our goal with the new fitness center was to provide a more inviting environment and a much better equipped workout facility. Jay Gallagher was instrumental in helping attain this goal. Jay's assistance in equipment selection and placement within the facility was invaluable. We knew that what we had developed, with Jay's assistance, would be well received. However, we were pleasantly surprised with the abundance of positive accolades and have welcomed the increased usage of the new fitness center. Everyone here raves about the new facility."
- Greg Allen. Vice President.
"After 35 years, the original Westminster High school had provided years of educational experiences and physical challenges. Unfortunately the building and much of its fitness equipment no longer met the needs of the students and staff. Commercial grade equipment is necessary in a high school setting and with Advanced Exercise Equipment’s host of over 40 manufacturers; we obtained exactly what we needed." Read More »

Thank you for providing such an enhancement to our Wellness program!"
- Julie Raistrick. Spa Director.

We highly recommend AEE as your one stop, from design through delivery, and beyond."

"We recently completed the building of a new fitness facility at San Diego Yacht Club with the help of Mario Rodriguez of Advanced Exercise Equipment. This is truly a state of the art facility with several cardio machines, a variety of strength machines, free weights, stability and medicine balls and several components for balance and core training. Mario was incredible to work with as he was available to attend planning meetings and take tours of the site during construction." Read More »
"Using software available to him he prepared a space plan showing how the equipment would fit into our small space. Mario was also a great consultant when finalizing the selection of equipment for our specific needs. He remained intimately involved in the entire building process from beginning to end, even overseeing the installation and assisting in conducting member orientations of the facility upon completion. The members of our Club are ecstatic with our new facility and have a great appreciation for the high level of equipment that we purchased from Advanced Exercise Equipment." Collapse

"An important component to this project was outfitting a state-of-the-art fitness room that would meet the needs of an older adult demographic. Mario Rodriguez of Advanced Exercise Equipment (AEE) was chosen, through a competitive Request for Proposal process to assist in making this project a success. Mr. Rodriguez's knowledge and extreme professionalism from the beginning made this decision easy. Furthermore, the product he provided was perfect for both the City's requirements as well as the needs of the community. From start to finish, the customer service AEE provided exceeded my expectations (including showing up at our grand opening) and Mario's understanding of the proposed equipment and its specific application for senior citizens has made our fitness room a huge success. There has been nothing but praise for the layout, design and product choice and I attribute this to his commitment to choose a combination of pieces that create a comprehensive fitness room."
