ICON Health & Fitness, Inc.

We help people live their best, healthiest lives

The origins


In 1977, two college classmates sat at a kitchen table in the very house pictured above,
sketching business ideas on a napkin. The entrepreneurs started with a small import
business selling various items including wood-burning stoves and clocks. Spotting early
trends of fitness and running, ICON’s founders shifted their focus to the emerging
opportunities in these new industries.


In the 1980s, ICON introduced treadmills that folded for storage. The result was
SpaceSaver™—an ICON innovation that lets consumers “fit fitness into the home” and
ignited growth in the home fitness category.


This early example shows ICON’s synergy of design, engineering and manufacturing
knowledge.  Over the decades, many more simple but brilliant improvements followed,
allowing ICON to lead by innovation.

equipment in each of the industry’s three largest categories—treadmills, stationary

Get a Good Score on the Dental Acceptance Test

Administered by the American Dental Association, the Dental Acceptance Test is a major component of a dental school application. Comprised of 280 questions, this five-hour test is heavily weighted toward questions related to the natural sciences, with reading comprehension and quantitative reasoning also making up a significant portion of the overall score.

Scored out of a possible 30 points, the current average score is 19. To be truly competitive, though, students should aim for a higher mark. The ADA reports that enrollment for 2014-2015 reached its highest level in the history of dental school, beating out the peak levels of entrants seen in the 1980-81 academic year. In reviewing admission cycle statistics, the competitive nature of the process becomes clearer when considering these admission numbers reported by some of the following top schools:

  • University of California San Francisco: 1,935 applicants,
