Willi Resch KG was founded in 1947. It produced machinery for shoe production. At the beginning of the 1970s, the company started looking for new markets. The managing director at that time, Hans Resch, had a strong interest in sports and medicine and began to lead the company into the field of cardio training.

In 1973, Willi Resch KG presented its first exercise bike for physio-therapeutic use. Thanks to its unprecedented quality, it soon became a success. 1981 brought a new turning point: The company presented the first exercise bike with Eddy Current Brakes. Today, this system has become the standard for exercise bikes. Thanks to continuous research and development, the company, now called ERGO-FIT, has found its way not only into the physiotherapy sector but also into the fitness industry.
