Why Helix Lateral Trainers Are Better

Most machines work front-to-back. The Helix Lateral Trainer turns tradition on its side— literally. With lateral (or side-to-side) movement, you use more muscles, which means you burn more fat than during a traditional workout– in the same amount of time. Science proves it. Plus Helix’s patented motion tones your butt, core and inner/outer thighs better than old-fashioned cardio machines.

Side to Side
Traditional machines work the front and backs of legs: a Helix workout sculpts the entire lower body 360°.
Better Than Elliptical
A scientific study found Helix Lateral Trainers outperformed a leading elliptical on 4 out of 5 muscle groups, with 50% more core activation, 50% more outer thigh activation and 39% more glute activation.
Comprehensive Workout
Helix Lateral Trainer users achieve target heart rates faster and activate more muscles than traditional cardio users. End result? A better workout in less time.Bottom Line Results
Our patented lateral motion gives you the best workout of your life, with better results in less time. Try going sideways and finally get somewhere.

Why Helix Lateral Trainers are Better…According to Science

Our patented lateral motion activates more muscles—more quickly—than other machines, all while torching more fat and calories than old-fashioned technology, according to a comprehensive 2011 University of Tampa study. Plus, the Helix Lateral Trainer can deliver the equivalent of an hour-long workout in just 30 minutes. Consider:

55% More Core Activation
Want a toned midsection? You won’t get it with a treadmill, bike, stepper or elliptical. With Helix, your core muscles are continually targeted throughout the entire cardio workout.
40% More Glute Activation
With a Helix Lateral Training Machine, you work the total leg: front, back, and sides, translating to real glute sculpting. This just isn’t possible on traditional cardio machines alone.
23% Faster Achievement of Target Heart Rate
With Helix Lateral Trainers, you’ll achieve your target heart rate faster, allowing you to achieve real results in substantially less time.
50% More Outer Thigh Work
It makes sense: you can’t get perfectly sculpted legs if you ignore half your leg, the way traditional cardio machines do! The Helix’s lateral motion focuses on the total leg, including the outer thighs, translating to incredible results.
Strengthen and Protect Your Knees
Not only does the Helix not harm your knees, it actively strengthens and protects them by targeting a muscle that other cardio machines ignore: the Gluteus Medius, a key supportive muscle for the knees. And there is zero pounding, zero impact on joints.

Professional Athletes Use It to Stay at the Top of Their Game
Some of the most elite athletes in the world use Helix in their training protocol, including world-class ice hockey franchises and one of the MLB’s top all-time most winning baseball teams (we can’t tell you which one but you either love them or hate them depending on where you live!).

Tone Legs, Butt and Thighs
Nothing will tone your legs, butt and thighs like a Helix Lateral Training Machine, nothing! Instead of just concentrating on the front and back of the legs like old-fashioned aerobic machines, the Helix works the TOTAL lower body a full 360 degrees.

Stop Spinning Your Wheels: Get Fit in Less Time, Not More
We’ve proven that you get your heart rate up quicker and recruit more muscles with the Helix Lateral Trainer. A 30 minute Helix workout is like a 60 minute workout on another machine.

Helix is the “Best” Low Impact Exercise For Your Knees
Our patented, lateral motion isn’t just low impact—it actually protects your knees by strengthening key supportive muscles that other machines ignore.

Lateral training machines have become popular and effective enough for physiology researchers at universities like Brown and Northwestern to study along with fitness trainers and doctors across the world. The benefits of lateral training are just beginning to break through the mainstream, but people who know understand there are definite advantages.

Your Joints

Lateral training has been proven to be much less stressful on joints, so exercise aficionados who are looking for a high impact cardio workout can get it without tearing up their knees. The lateral movements that the machines imitate are much closer to the natural movements and forms that yoga and Pilates use to build stability and flexibility. Overall, there is less of a chance of an injury when using lateral movements than traditional movements.

Your Problem Areas

Many women love lateral movement machines because the exercises naturally hit problem areas for women including the outer thighs and glutes. When compared to elliptical machines, the outer thighs showed 50 percent more activation, while glutes showed 39 percent more.

Lateral machines tend to emulate the same movements that are incorporated into natural exercises such as skating, tennis and swimming. These movements, although they isolate certain areas, do not limit the movement so much that the muscle groups disengage from one another in an unhealthy way.

More Fun

Although the scientific research is telling and the results are undeniable, lateral movement machines would not be taking gyms by storm if they were not fun. The new movements that the machines allow are simply more expressive and creative than other kinds of traditional machines, and this is a morale booster that keeps people in the gym for longer periods of time.

Results of Lateral Movement

Instead of training the body to perform a single movement, lateral machines add mobility, strength and stability for any movement. This gives the lateral machine a much wider range of possibilities for rehabilitation purposes, and it is the reason why many professional trainers use lateral machines for injured pro athletes, much more than elliptical machines.

Easy to Use

Contrary to popular belief, lateral machines are easy to learn and to use. Although the learning curve is slightly higher than an elliptical machine, the movement is so natural that anyone can take it on once it is shown to them once or twice. This is why the machines are quite popular in spin classes at commercial gyms – people love to use them in groups so that they can look over each other’s movements and watch the teacher before going out on their own.
