Fans of the SitNCycle will rejoice that this popular exercise bike has made it to the audition round of Walmart’s Get On The Shelf contest! This means it needs votes to move on to the next round, so head on over to the page and cast your vote before September 2:

You can vote once per day per product. Your votes are crucial, since the judges will be looking at products’ popularity and consumer support as indicators of their commercial viability. The more votes, the better! We know there are many people out there who love the SitNCycle just as much as Dorothy Hamill does, so get out and show your support by heading over to the contest page and vote! All you need is a Facebook login.

The Walmart Get On The Shelf promotion is a nationwide contest putting thousands of well-loved products through three rounds of voting, with finalists featured in an original Walmart web series. The ultimate prize is placing the product in Walmart stores across the country, as well as marketing support from the retail giant. The first Get On The Shelf contest launched in 2012, and was a great success: over a million votes were cast for a great batch of products. We’re excited to be a part of the contest because it involves investors, marketers, and businesses big and small, letting consumers vouch for the products they love.

If you’re passionate about promoting great exercise equipment, then hop on over and vote. Smooth Fitness appreciates your involvement and we can’t wait for what’s next to come in the process.
