Dr. Joseph Galletti Ultimate Gym, Farmingville, NY
The Helix is a popular machine with our members, and I’d say that women in particular tend to gravitate towards it. Based on feedback, I’d say the primary reason people are using it relates to the different type of workout it gives you, and we try to pique members’ interest in using the machine for this reason.
We point out to members that the important benefits Helix provides relate to its focus on effectively working a range of different lower body muscle groups – abductors, adductors, hams and glutes – that other machines don’t impact. I’d also agree that the Helix is an intense workout compared to other cardio machine, and I think people find the Helix to be a challenge in that regard. We are definitely happy with the machine.
