Senior Fitness & The Helix
We receive tons of positive feedback from Helix® users, ranging from trainers and serious athletes, to gym & fitness club members staying in-shape, to folks coming back from injury or an extended period of inactivity.
Not surprisingly, some of the most informed and satisfying comments we get are those coming from older Helix® users. These are often folks who have been athletically active for years, have experience in overcoming injuries, and clearly recognize the benefits Lateral Training can play in achieving their fitness goals.
The following comments from Dr. James Metz, a Columbus, OH, dentist, are representative of those from our highly-valued community of senior Helix®-users across the country:
I will be 70 in 6 months and staying fit is important. Injuries accumulate and age takes its toll, but low-impact exercise, diet, and weight training helps keep all of this at bay.
The Helix® has helped me train for my passion, mountaineering and other sports where you do more than walk in a straight line. The step machine is good, but adding the circular motion is the best! My knees are damaged; but by using the Helix®, they are much stronger…you can feel it the first time you step on the machine.
I highly recommend this machine over all others. The first few sessions are a killer! Hang in there, and you will be amazed at the improvement of the knees…and it makes your glutes rock hard.
If you are still mountaineering at age 70, clearly you’re doing something right! ROCK ON, DOCTOR!
And with the introduction of the revolutionary Helix® Recumbent this summer, the benefits of lateral training can be captured by users at any stage on the fitness spectrum including, of course, senior users and anyone coming back from an injury. So if you want to tighten up and strengthen everything from the core to the floor, jump on a Helix® or have a seat – it’ll be fun & effective either way – THE MOST EFFECTIVE CARDIO PRODUCT EVER BUILT!
