Vision Fitness will reportedly launch a commercial line of strength equipment at the 2024 IHRSA tradeshow, March 7-8, in Los Angeles, CA.

In conjunction with the launch, Chris Torggler was named general manager of Vision Fitness’ U.S. Vision Commercial Group. Torggler brings 30 years of commercial fitness industry sales and product leadership to the position. 

Vision Fitness expects that the line expansion, timed with Torggler’s hire, will position the brand for growth. 

“Chris is the ideal person to lead the future development and expansion of the Vision Commercial line,” said Bob Zande, president of Johnson Health Tech Retail, Inc., parent of Vision Fitness. “He joins us with a wealth of industry experience, having held senior leadership positions with other leading commercial fitness companies.”

Most recently, Torggler was VP of sales for Inspire Fitness after being the company’s chief operating officer for almost two years. Before Inspire, he worked at Precor for 23 years in roles ranging from sales manager to VP of sales, SVP/ZGM for strength and global sales director for strategic accounts. Previously, Torggler was the international sales manager at Stairmaster.

“I am thrilled to join the Johnson Health Tech team in this new role,” said Torggler. “The new Vision product line is incredibly strong and represents a tremendous step forward for the brand. I’m excited to bring it to the market with Johnson and its strong team.”
