By SHAWN ROSS, AP sports editorThe New York Times has reported that Amazon is developing a new workout treadmill that could help Indian athletes in training and compete in international competitions.
The treadmill could be called “Amazon Fitness,” the paper reported.
The company did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
The Indian government has long been pushing for the world’s largest online retailer to create a physical workout facility.
Amazon has long struggled to create such facilities because of the country’s complicated regulatory and regulatory framework.
Amazon’s first fitness treadmill, which is called the Prime 2, was unveiled in 2016 and was a popular model.
The treadmill is the first Amazon product to be produced in India.
India’s fitness ministry did not respond to an email seeking comment.
India also has a number of companies competing for Indian sports athletes.
The United States-based Fitocracy, which has more than 30,000 members, was one of the first fitness facilities in India, according to the Times.
The program offers a “full range of exercise equipment for competitive and recreational athletes.”
The company also sells a number other fitness equipment, including treadmills, weights, and treadmiles, the Times said.
Amazon did not return a request seeking comment on the report.
