The Most Effective Cardio Training Ever
Bikes, treadmills, ellipticals: they all work the body one way: moving in a front-to-back plane. Helix turns tradition on its side — literally– and moves the body in all 3 planes of human motion. With full 3D, your heart rate gets to targeted range faster and you use more muscles every second of a workout, which means you burn more fat than during a traditional workout. Plus, Helix’s internationally patented motion super tones your butt, your core, and even the hard-to-target inner and outer thighs. Traditional cardio machines just can’t do that.
1. Side to Side, Up and Down, Forward and Back
Traditional machines concentrate work on the front and back of the legs: a Helix 3D workout sculpts the entire lower body 360°. Hits more lower body muscles than other cardio machines.
2. Better than ellipticals
A clinical study found Helix outperformed a leading elliptical on 4 out of 5 muscle groups, with 55% more core activation, 50% more outer thigh activation and 39% more glute activation.
3. Comprehensive workout
Helix users achieve target heart rates faster and activate more muscles than traditional cardio users. End result? Not just a better workout, but a better workout in less time.
4. Save time
The Helix lateral motion gives you better results in less time. In fact, a full Helix workout delivers cardio and toning benefits in half the time of a spin class.
From the scientists…. why Helix is better
Multiple clinical studies have shown our patented motion gives better results in less time. Move in 3D and you’ll activate more muscles, more quickly, all while torching more fat than with old-fashioned technology, according to studies conducted at the University of Tampa, Northwestern University and High Point University.
+55% More Core Activation
Want a toned midsection? You won’t get it on a spin bike….or a treadmill, elliptical or stepper. With Helix, your core muscles are continually activated throughout your entire cardio workout.
+39% More Glute Activation
With Helix, you work the total lower body, front, back and sides. Working the lower body 360® translates to real glute sculpting, something previously impossible doing cardio alone.
+50% More Outer Thigh Activation
Unlike traditional cardio, Helix does not focus only on the fronts and backs of your legs while neglecting half of your lower body. The lateral motion works the inner thighs and those hard-to-target outer thighs for incredible strengthening and toning results while you do your cardio.
AND Strengthen and protect your knees
Helix is zero impact so it is safe for knees. But crucially, it also strengthens knees by super-targeting a muscle key to knee health that nearly every other cardio workout ignores: the Gluteus Medius. Helix strengthens this muscle every second of every workout.
From real people… why Helix is better
A workout that can get you fitter in dramatically less time appeals to just about anyone. In fact, we’ve found that Helix is attractive to users across a broad spectrum, helping all kinds of exercisers improve their game, their bodies, their weight, and even their balance.
Some of the most elite athletes in the world — like the LA Lakers, the New England Patriots and the Cleveland Cavaliers — use Helix in their training protocols. People whose careers and livelihood depend on their fitness choose Helix Lateral Trainers.
Helix is better at toning what women tell us they want to improve. Saddlebags? Helix outperforms a leading elliptical by 50%. Glutes? Helix outperforms a leading elliptical by 39%. Love handles? Helix outperforms a leading elliptical by 55%. A spin class can’t do that.
If you want to lose weight, Helix is a no brainer: when you work more muscles every second of every workout, you burn more fat every second of every workout. Plus, Helix has been shown to help achieve targeted heart rates 23% faster than other leading cardio machines.
Traditional cardio keeps heart and lungs fit, but won’t address the common muscular imbalances that worsen as we age. A clinical study showed lateral training can dramatically improve balance in as little as three weeks, while reducing fall and injury risk and joint pain.
