UTAH GENIUS Awards bring together top inventors and creative geniuses from Utah to pay tribute to individuals and companies driving Utah’s creative economy.  The award acknowledges ICON’s contribution to advancing technology through its many brands and groundbreaking products and services, including the new iFit® Coach advanced fitness coaching and Altra’s IQ smart running shoe.

“It is humbling to be honored by the UTAH GENIUS Awards because it comes from our peers, it comes from our friends and we are proud to be among such an outstanding group. ICON has been known for our history of innovation in the health and fitness industry and will carry that legacy forward,” said Kurt Finlayson.

ICON has a continuous focus on innovation and technological improvement. The company’s premier brands consistently rank at the top of the home fitness industry’s three largest categories—treadmills, stationary bikes and ellipticals. ICON’s products are frequently raved about in leading magazines, including Consumer Reports “Best Buy” for a ProForm treadmill, Good Housekeeping “Best of the Test” for a NordicTrack elliptical, Women’s Health “Best of Fitness Tech” for the iFit Duo tracker, and Runner’s World “Editor’s Choice” for the Altra IQ smart shoe.
