Lepape, based in Paris, is a privately owned company that has been servicing the fitness market in France for more than 20 years and works with the French Ministry of the Armed Forces providing cardio and strength equipment for their personnel.

Lepape’s business philosophy is to adapt to the real needs of their customers, providing exceptional service and ultimately the right solution for each and every project. This aligns with Core’s values making them a perfect fit.

Lepape always uses the best specification products they can, to ensure quality fitness equipment is delivered to their end customers, which is why they have chosen to partner with Core Health & Fitness to give the best customer experience.

Claude Lepape, owner of Lepape, says “With our 20+ years of experience in the French fitness market, we are very glad to be able to distribute the full Core line-up with all of their brands; Schwinn, Nautilus, Star Trac, StairMaster and Throwdown. Those brands are both a mixture of true experience and technological innovation and truly complimentary.”

Inteam Développement, based in Lyon, France, comes on board as a fully-fledged distribution partner to Core Health & Fitness, after playing a key interim role during the transition period in 2020. With their particular focus on the vertical markets and commercial gym chains, they will be looking to continue Core’s growth in these sectors. Backed by over 20 years of industry experience, their business is based on a strong belief in health & fitness and making it accessible to all.

Inteam Développement pride themselves on offering tailor-made solutions for each gym project. Their commercial operation is built around 4 pillars, namely: performance, trust, humility & flexibility. This, along with their passion and expertise, is what makes them a great match for Core Health & Fitness.

Tangi David, founder and owner of Inteam Développement, says, “Everybody at Inteam Développement are proud to represent Core Health & Fitness in France. All the brands of this group are major players in the global fitness industry and perfectly complement the panel of high-quality partners that Inteam Développement already work with. We have great ambitions both in the fitness market and in the vertical market and are looking forward to a long relationship.”

Michel Somford, Director of European Sales comments “France is one of the bigger markets in Europe so to secure two new great partners complementing each other is a great step forward for Core to ensure national coverage for all our sales and support activities. We are very excited about the values and expertise both partners bring and look forward to developing long lasting, successful relationships with them.”
