Bowflex Max Trainer®: Reinventing the Cardio Machine
The Bowflex Max Trainer® is an all-in-one cardio machine that combines the power of an elliptical and stair stepper to create a one-of-a-kind full body workout that delivers results in 14 minutes.
Bowflex Max Trainer® burns up to 2.5 times the calories of other exercise equipment, and engages the upper body 80 percent more than a traditional elliptical. Its sleek design enables full-body movement while remaining easier on the joints.
Bowflex Max Trainer® also provides users the ability to track their workouts with the free Bowflex Max Trainer® app that wirelessly transfers all workout data via Bluetooth® Smart technology. It tracks every detail — from time on the machine to calories burned — and automatically syncs workout data with Apple Health, Google Fit, as well as MyFitnessPal.
Its space-saving, compact design makes it ideal for workouts even if space is a limitation at home.
Bowflex Max Trainer® has also earned a number of global design awards, including the prestigious Red Dot Design Award and International Design Award (IDA).
Schwinn® Airdyne® AD 8 Total Fitness Bike: Revolutionizing the Stationary Bike
The new Schwinn® Airdyne® AD 8 Total Fitness Bike leverages the iconic Schwinn Airdyne Technology™ — its legacy built around the power of unlimited wind resistance — and takes the technology to the next level. From the performance engineered, perimeter-weighted flywheel for smooth startup and cycling, to the proven strength of the splined solid steel cranks that deliver more power to the pedals, to the moisture repellent double coated steel body construction, the Schwinn® Airdyne® AD 8 is designed to withstand the rigors of high intensity training by the most intense athletes.
The Schwinn® Airdyne® AD 8’s commercial-grade components are built to support multi-user, high workload environments — ranging from the local CrossFit®-affiliated gym to rehabilitation facilities — while the bike’s compact design also makes it ideal for the ultimate at-home workout experience.
The bike features a revolutionary multi-position handle, which offers users the flexibility to place hands either vertically or horizontally. The anti-slip foot platforms provide a more robust push off to leverage more power from every workout. Equipped with an oversize padded seat for ultimate comfort, a universal rail and clamp system, also gives users the flexibility to add a custom seat.
The Schwinn® Airdyne® AD 8 allows users to seamlessly and simply tailor the level of intensity — the more effort given, the more resistance that is delivered through the bike’s smooth, quiet direct drive belt system. In addition, Schwinn Airdyne Technology™ blends seamlessly with custom interval training programs to offer users of all levels uniquely challenging workouts with metrics like watts, calories, time, and distance.
