Training equipment manufacturer Bowflex is shutting down its training cone and trainer programs, citing a lack of demand for the devices.
The company posted a notice on its website saying that it had reduced the availability of its training devices, citing the current low price of the bowflex and trainer.
The announcement comes as training equipment makers and retailers are struggling to keep up with demand for training devices amid the ongoing financial crisis.
Bowflex said it had sold 1.7 million training cones and training equipment to customers since it began making them in 2011.
The products are designed to help athletes prepare for competitions, and can be purchased for as little as $1.49 each.
Bow Flex has been selling its products in bulk since 2012.
