Markovits, Stock & DeMarco Files a Class Action Lawsuit against Nautilus Based on Allegations of False and Misleading Treadmill Horsepower Representations

| Jul 9, 2020 | Firm News

On July 7, 2020, the attorneys at Markovits, Stock & DeMarco, along with co-counsel, filed a class action lawsuit alleging that Nautilus employs misleading horsepower representations in advertising, marketing, and selling treadmills to everyday consumers. The lawsuit alleges nationwide warranty claims and state-based warranty and consumer protection claims against Nautilus. The lawsuit seeks, among other forms of relief, an order from the court stopping Nautilus from continuing to promote its treadmills using false and misleading horsepower representations.

Nautilus and its brands Bowflex and Schwinn promote and emphasize in their advertising the horsepower capabilities of its treadmills, from 2.5 continuous horsepower to 4.25 continuous horsepower, and charges a premium based on these claims. But the Complaint alleges these horsepower numbers are not achievable during normal household use. A copy of the class action Complaint detailing the alleged misrepresentations is available here.
