I have gained skills and experience that I never imagined.
Talk about destiny. I started out in the sanding department, did some powder coating and practiced welding during my breaks.
Eventually I got my certificate in Arc Welding and now am part of the welding team. I have gained skills and experience
that I never imagined. I am grateful for the opportunity that I have been given and look forward to many more years at Cybex
with the chance to keep growing within the company. I know that Cybex is a manufacturer of premier equipment and I take
pride in my work because I know people are expecting a great product. I believe in the excellence of the products myself
which motivated me to finance an exercise machine and my wife and I use it religiously.

I learned, in great detail, what it takes to build a high quality machine
I started working at Cybex in the manufacturing department running one of the sheet metal bending machines. I decided to
take advantage of the tuition reimbursement program and continue my education at night. Shortly after earning my Associates
degree, I accepted a position as an Associate Industrial Engineer where I learned, in great detail, what it takes to build
a high quality machine in the most efficient manner possible. I think it is fairly common for a company to have a tuition
reimbursement program, but what makes my experience at Cybex Fso much better is that for every step of the way a new door
was opened. I now manage the Medway Mechanical Engineering group...I feel that I have worked hard to get here and Cybex
has shown appreciation.

For me Cybex is the mark against which all other companies are measured.
I thought that I had worked for good employers before but working for Cybex has made me realise that in fact they were merely
average. Cybex is completely focused on being the best supplier of fitness equipment in the market both from a quality and
ethical stand point with no exceptions. Cybex is constantly pushing me to be the best that I possibly can be. I am aided
in this through professional courses in areas such as negotiating and time management and we constantly strive for ‘best
practice’ throughout the sales force. For me Cybex is the mark against which all other companies are measured.

I feel [my job as a Cybex welder] will encourage my son
When I was growing up I had no one to look up to and I feel [my job as a Cybex welder] will encourage my son to do something
positive or maybe he will be the next welder in the family!

The atmosphere at Cybex is one of cooperation and support
I feel like my work here is always recognized - never overlooked. The atmosphere at Cybex is one of cooperation and support,
which I think is rare in today’s workplace. While many of my friends are searching for new “more satisfying” jobs, I know
am very fortunate to be just 25, have had the privilege of being promoted to the lead of my department since I’ve started,
and working for a company that I know I will stay with for years. Cybex is truly a great place to work.

I never in my life would have imagined that I would take part in a triathlon.
Well, I never in my life would have imagined that I would take part in a triathlon. But here I am, almost 37 years old,
exhausted by working full-time and taking care of my toddler and preschooler sons, and training for my first triathlon event.
How did I get this goal? Well, my co-worker completed this for her first time last year and has motivated me to do the same.
I watched her train for months in the Cybex workout facility and then saw firsthand how her hard work and dedication to
her goal positively impacted her. And what a remarkable accomplishment and confidence builder that was.

Cybex’s tuition reimbursement program has given me the opportunity to exercise my intellectual muscles
Cybex’s tuition reimbursement program has given me the opportunity to exercise my intellectual muscles at my university
and remain an employee of the Fabrication Department. As a machinist, I’ve been able to take advantage of the Owatonna facility’s
weekend shift, which has given me a manageable balance of work and education. This balance has allowed me to carry over
many of the useful traits I’ve developed as a Cybex employee to my everyday life, such as strong work ethic and teamwork
skills. Along with tuition reimbursement, I also earn wages higher than the average college student and have the privilege
of working in a positive culture every weekend. Thanks, Cybex.
