“From the moment I tried the Helix, I thought, ‘Why didn't I think of this!’ I love the lateral movement of the Helix, its ability to really hit the hips and butt, and the way it gets my heart rate up so effectively.” Celebrity trainer and nutritionist Harley Pasternak.
The programmable Helix H1000 is the latest version of the Original Helix Aerobic Lateral Trainer. This latest version adds the benefits of a Multi-Program Console
and automatic electronic resistance control
Results normally achieved only via weight training---while burning fat and toning the cardiovascular system at the same time. A 2012 study versus an elliptical show Helix had superior results in 7 out of 8 muscles studied, with 40% more glute activation and 23% faster achievement of targeted heart rates. Why? Unlike nearly all machines that work in a front-to-back plane, the Helix's horizontal "figure eight" motion actually recruits more muscles. Typical machines focus mostly on the front of the thighs and the hamstrings, but the Helix targets these while simultaneously recruiting the inner and outer thighs and glutes. Users can effortlessly alternate direction and positioning to pinpoint specific muscles. Superb for sports-specific training, especially tennis, skiing and golf. At a compact 42" x 37" footprint, the Helix is considerably smaller than a treadmill.
The Helix engages all of the muscles of the lower body, actively working the #1 trouble spots for most women: the inner and outer thighs and glutes. That translates to superior results: shapely legs and a toned and lifted butt.
