In this video a fitness club manager, Amanda, reacts to her first test ride on the Helix Lateral Trainer.  “It went right to my glutes, I felt nothing on my knees…that’s really important, I want to target my glutes but I don’t want to work my knees…within 5 minutes my butt was burning & my heart was jumping out of my chest – it was FUN!”  And, of course, because of its intensity, it’s a real time-saver, “20 minutes is equivalent to an hour of weight training!”

Full Body Workout

Wouldn’t it be great to get a concentrated full body workout – cardio, strength, core, upper & lower body – without spending all that time in the gym?  In other words, wouldn’t it be great if you could find a single machine that helped you reach a range of your fitness goals?

In this video clip, Lindsey reacts to her first test ride on a Helix Lateral Trainer with, “It was AWESOME!  I thought it would be similar to an elliptical but it’s way better…it’s really cool how you can engage all parts of your body.”  Lindsey’s initial ride only went for a few minutes, “but I could tell if I did it for 30 minutes it would probably kick my ass!”

Finding workout time can be a problem, so we all want to maximize results quickly.  And this is where the Helix stands out by providing the most intense and efficient workout available with any machine. All your lower body muscles – glutes, quads, inner & outer thighs – plus your core – are targeted by this unique machine.  And because it engages everything, not only does the Helix tone and shape your legs & booty, it provides an intense cardio workout that burns calories like no other machine.

Butt Workout

In spite of the high priority women place on an effective ‘butt workout’ that tones & shapes the lower body, until the Helix Lateral Trainer there simply was no way to quickly & easily target these muscles – the glutes, the quads, and inner & outer thighs.

In this video clip, Donna, a long-time Personal Trainer & Fitness instructor, reacts to her first Helix workout and there is no doubt about her verdict, “This is the BEST workout for your butt!”   As a trainer, she also gives the Helix high marks for its versatility.  “You can get an entire body workout…cardio as well as working on strength, lower body as well as upper body, and you’re working the core…”

The Helix is designed to engage, tone and shape the entire lower body – including all the gluteus muscles in addition to the quads and thighs.  From a woman’s perspective, it attacks EXACTLY those areas that traditionally have been the biggest trouble spots.  In Donna’s words, “If you want your glutes looking Up-High & Tight, then you want to get on the Helix!”

Booty Obsession

Ever wonder why popular culture seems to have developed a Booty Obsession?  TMZ Hollywood Sports took on the subject and actually brought in the World’s #1 Celebrity Trainer, Harley Pasternak, to answer some questions about what’s going on.

As could be expected the TMZ commentators kept things pretty light, but this is serious business for Harley given the staggering list of celebrity booties he has helped create (e.g., Halle Berry, Jessica Simpson, Megan Fox, Kim Kardashian, Sanaa Lathan, Jordana Brewster, etc., etc.).  In fact, depending on your view of the matter Harley can be accused or credited with playing an important role in creating the Booty Obsession.

Discussing the most important factors in getting a movie star butt, Harley had tongue firmly in cheek when he emphasized the importance of choosing your parents carefully.  Turning serious, he recommended exercises such as variations on lunging – the skater lunge, reverse lunge, or step lunge – that use one leg to really get your glutes going.

And then he got to his core recommendation.  “There’s actually a piece of exercise equipment called the Helix Lateral Trainer that’s like an elliptical machine but goes side-to-side….I’ve used it with Kim, I used it with Megan, all kinds of my female clients, and they really LOVE it for their butts – it’s all about the butt with that machine.”

So if you’re a female and are looking to improve that lower body, you probably want to incorporate some lunges into your workout, and you definitely need to climb aboard a Helix Lateral Trainer (the good news is that it also will give you the best cardio workout you’ve ever had).

Ninja Turtles Workout

Ninja TurtleIf you’re starring in the latest Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie after having two babies in less than two years, getting into “movie star” shape has got to be a big challenge…right?  Not so much, according to celebrity trainer Harley Pasternak in a recent interview with Us Weekly about client Megan Fox’s diet & exercise regime.

Harley, who trains an absolute boatload of celebs & has authored five NY Times health & fitness bestsellers, indicated that Fox maintains a simple…and sensible…Megan Fox4approach to diet – low sugar, goods carbs, and moderate protein, fiber, and healthy fat.  Sounds like a balanced diet doesn’t it?  And because she’s not zeroing out a specific category, her regime is sustainable!

Turning to Fox’s exercise routine, Harley has her working on strengthening her backside muscles to straighten her posture after carrying babies for two years.  Using short, concentrated workouts, the focus is to strengthen the upper back and stretch the lower back.  And, of course, for the cardio side of the equation she’s using the Helix Lateral Trainer.

So if you want to be ready for that casting call, just remember: balanced & sustainable diet plus consistent workouts that include great cardio using the Helix Lateral Trainer.  Hey, if it works for Ninja Turtles it’ll work for everyone!

User Spotlight: Rehabbing Athletes

Rehabbing AthletesCorporate world to entrepreneur to rehabbing athletes.  After spending her career in clinical oncology with a major pharma company and as the Chief Science Officer for a major diagnostic firm, Alane Koki retired four years ago and began to concentrate on her independent interests: forming her own company, BioFitRx, and becoming a fitness trainer specializing in pre/rehabilitation and functional training.

During the process of focusing her considerable skills & expertise on fitness training in general and athletic rehab in particular, Alane has become quite an advocate for the role the Helix Lateral Trainer can play as an integral part of any well rounded fitness program. Here are some of her comments when we had a chance to catch up with her for a brief interview.

Helix: How did you discover the Helix?

Koki:
In the summer of 2013 I attended the IDEA World Convention. My mission was to identiy and evaluate exercise equipment to recommend to the gym I train out of, AmeriFit in Pittsburgh PA.. It’s a pretty special gym – its full repertoire of equipment enables trainers to do everything from pre/rehabilitation to sport specific conditioning for both athletes and mature adults.

Anyway, I was looking for the next generation of equipment, and immediately became interested in the Helix trainer because it was the first piece of equipment I’d seen that trains on the lateral plane.

I was absolutely sold on it – I wanted to get it into the gym right away, and when I came back from IDEA I told the owner that “we need these machines!” They already had 60 pieces of equipment, and actually had to remove some of them to make room for the Helix.

Helix: How…and why…are you using the Helix?

Koki:
I’m a trainer and I’ve integrated the Helix into workouts with my clients. I do sport specific training with athletes from multiple sports, and I’ve found that the Helix effectively develops the strength and endurance of their stabilizing muscles.

In addition, it reinforces the “athletic position”, and teaches them to push through their hips instead of their quads. For all athletes, regardless of their sport, hip power is key. The Helix is perfect for this!

Also, many of my clients have injuries of the spine, knees, and hips, and the Helix has enabled me to teach clients to be more hip-centric vs quad-centric. For example, knee issues often stem from the hip, and other equipment – ellipticals, arc trainers, etc. – simply can’t teach spinal/pelvic control or positioning the way the Helix does.

Helix: Any other experiences with the Helix?

Koki:
I personally had a bilateral hip replacement last year and the Helix has played an integral part in my own rehabilitation. As it would happen, the owner of my gym also had a hip replacement, and without the Helix neither of us would be as far along as we are.

I use the Helix extensively with my clients, and I’m continuing to find new ways to use it – it’s unique and effective, and will continue to be an integral part of my client training & rehab.
