Total Body Benefits
Members want efficient workouts for the maximum ROI – so all muscles must be working hard. With HIIT, the ultra-effective Max Interval workout drives exercisers to burn calories, blast fat and improve conditioning. Plus, a major HIIT benefit is the post-exercise elevated calorie burn that can last for hours after workouts – which helps boosts metabolism and leads to better results and greater retention.
And the Max Trainer® machine is ideal for beginners, exercisers who choose steady-state or who prefer moderate intensity workouts as well. Its low-impact format means that users don’t beat up their bodies with repetitive pounding.
Exercisers love the Max Trainer® machine because they can just get on and go – without having to punch a bunch of buttons, decipher a complicated console or figure out time-consuming adjustments. The ultimate in efficiency – with no time wasted.
This is HIIT at its best, with instant resistance in response to an exerciser’s efforts, and no significant ramp-up time where heart rates can drop and intensity decreases. Its ease of use and immediate responsiveness make the Max Trainer® machine ideal for circuit training, where multiple users push their limits in rapid succession from one station to the next, and every second counts.
The beauty of the Max Trainer® machine is in its progressive intensity, provided by wind resistance and a magnetic brake. That means exercisers of different fitness levels can challenge themselves and progress continually for ongoing results. Intensity is entirely controlled by the users’ efforts throughout every workout.
The harder a user pushes, the more resistance the machine offers. This responsiveness makes the Max Trainer® machine an ideal machine for HIIT and steady-state cardio – for beginners to athletes.
Multiple hand placement options offer custom comfort to exercisers, along with valuable variety. Fully engaging the upper body on the Max Trainer® machine yields more work for the chest, back, shoulders and arms, and high intensity means that the entire body must work hard. Every muscle matters, and the arms cannot just go along for the ride!
For superior motivation, the convenient calorie meter offers instant feedback on calories burned per minute, and encourages exercisers to continually push their pace to accomplish even more. It’s addictive!
At a glance, members can track time, floors, pace and total calories, so it’s easy to make instant intensity adjustments as necessary within steady-state or HIIT sessions to meet goals and improve progress.
The CROSS CiRCUIT™ workout adds even more efficiency to the Max Trainer® machine by combining cardio intervals with strength-training exercises on the floor next to the machine. Exercisers use the PowerBlock adjustable dumbbells or body weight to perform a variety of exercises, benefitting from a rigorous regimen that burns calories and fat, builds muscle and boosts metabolism.
Health clubs can use CROSS CiRCUIT™ workout for individual exercisers, in personal training one-on-one sessions and in small group training – and potentially as a new revenue stream.
The CROSS CiRCUIT Pro Kit creates a compact, versatile cardio-strength station anywhere in a facility. It includes two PowerBlock dumbbells, which are easily adjustable from 4 to 32 pounds each, and an integrated PowerBlock weight stand on the Max Trainer machine.
The beauty of the CROSS CiRCUIT™ workout is the ongoing ability to progress, so that it accommodates exercisers of different levels and continues to offer challenges and novelty as people get more fit. PowerBlock dumbbells make it easy and fast to increase resistance, and other accessories, such as medicine balls, barbells and balance disks, present additional exercise variations.
The bottom line is that the CROSS CiRCUIT™ workout motivates members to push themselves, and equips them to work harder for powerful results and better retention.
Members today want virtually endless workout variety and efficiency, and CROSS CiRCUIT™ workout delivers. In addition to the PowerBlock dumbbells, additional accessories, such as a stability ball, BOSU Balance Trainer, medicine balls, kettlebells and resistance bands, vary exercises and create new challenges. Also, the order of exercises can be changed, along with the length of cardio intervals and the duration and number of strength training sets.
The CROSS CiRCUIT™ program energizes individual workouts, adds a new option for trainers, provides programming for clubs and delivers maximum ROI in a minimum space.
