User Spotlight: MAKES YOU FEEL WONDERFUL AFTERWARDS!

Lydia BullenLydia Exercises on the Helix All The Time At Her Local YMCA

Helix absolutely LOVES to hear back from users about your cardio fitness training experiences with the Helix Lateral Trainer.  Whether you’re using the Helix in your home gym, or working out at a small fitness studio, or using the Helix at a major health club, your enthusiasm inspires other folks to get up on the machine and start pumping away.  User fitness training experiences are always unique, and here’s the feedback we got from Lydia Bullen, a real Helix convert who uses the machine at her local YMCA:

Lydia:  The Helix Lateral Trainer is one of my most favorite exercise machines at my local Y. The thing I like best is that the Helix gives you the results you’re after, so it’s very effective!!

You get a killer workout on your booty, thighs, hips, legs and core. You can tone those trouble zones while still getting an aerobic workout, so you can burn fat and lose weight. And I love the side-to-side motion!

I exercise on this machine all the time at my local YMCA and I LOVE IT!!  It’s an awesome machine. Makes you feel WONDERFUL afterwards! 

Thanks for the feedback, Lydia.  And if you’ve got a Helix story of your own, let us hear from you on Facebook or Google+.

YMCA Corner: Marketing, New Members, & the Helix (Part 2)

YMCA p2YMCAs Talk About Business, Members & the Helix

In Part 2 of this series, we again recognize the YMCAs are pretty much like other clubs…except they’ve got this history about serving their communities and providing welcoming, open-arms & a wholesome environment for the whole family that’s drilled into their DNA.

But in a very competitive business, YMCAs face the same realities as other fitness clubs.  To stay in business and fulfill their charter, they need effective membership strategies, quality services, and leading-edge weight-loss, muscle-toning, and cardio fitness training solutions and approaches.

As mentioned in Part 1, Helix has a growing footprint with YMCAs across the country and receives a lot of feedback from these clubs about their Helix experiences, more of which is provided below:

GREAT FOR SPORTS TRAINING

Suzanne Porticello, Darien YMCA, Darien, CT

Our overall experience with the Helix has been great.  A wide variety of our members are using it and everyone’s been pleased.  We train a lot of athletes, and we’ve been using it in sports-specific training – field hockey, lacrosse, ice hockey, football.  These sports require a lot of lateral movement and typical cardio fitness training equipment just doesn’t help, so the Helix is certainly unique.

I’d say it’s helpful in attracting & retaining members – a lot of people walk in and have never seen it before, so that in-and-of itself is a positive since we have a lot of competition in the area and the Helix is definitely a unique piece for us to have.

ONE OF OUR TOP MACHINES

Austin Scisciani, Licking County YMCA, Newark, OH

We’ve had the Helix for about six months and I’d say it’s already one of our top machines in terms of popularity with the members.  People are wary at first because they’ve never seen anything like it, but once they’ve tried it they really enjoy it because it does something so different – even though it tires them out a lot quicker.

The Helix is popular with all types of members – every age group and every level of athleticism – so it’s not just the younger athletes who are using it.  And it’s a machine that people aren’t used to seeing in other gyms, so it has that exotic appeal that helps attract potential new members.

HITS MUSCLES OTHER MACHINES DON’T

Cyndee Goodinson, YMCA of Attleboro, Attleboro, MA

Our overall experience has been very positive.  It’s a hard workout, the members like it.  It’s challenging because it’s a different workout due to the movement of the machine, so they like the experience because they’re hitting muscles that they don’t normally work on with cardio fitness training machines.  It gets them to a cardio-vascular level that the other machines really don’t hit.  It’s definitely a compliment to what we offer – we have two.

Helix has a growing footprint with YMCAs across the country and we receive a steady stream of feedback about their experiences with the Lateral Trainer, a sample of which is provided below:

BOTH CARDIO WORKOUT & RESISTANCE TRAINER

Amanda McFerren, Lancaster YMCA, Lancaster, PA

We’ve had the Helix for about 3 years and our overall experience has been very good.  I’d say it’s used mostly by women that are already in athletic shape. 

I think that the members using the Helix regularly already have a good understanding of their bodies and realize that this is a motion that you can’t get on any other machine because of the planes you are moving in.  When I train people on it I actually tell them you can do two different things: you can go fast and get nice cardio fitness training or you can use it as more of a resistance trainer where you’re able to train and tone the muscles it targets.

The Helix has proven to be a good selling point with potential members – I’ve worked in several facilities and I tell people that we are the only one I’ve seen with a Helix, and that really does kind of draw them into the advantages of our club.

AWESOME OVERALL EXPERIENCE

Betty Linko, Indian Valley YMCA, Harleysville, PA

Our overall experience with the Helix has been awesome, the members love it!  A lot of members used to use the elliptical but they like the different motion and the work the Helix does on the lower body.

As far as what the gym is offering, the Helix helps give us variety by being one more piece that helps members from getting bored with their fitness training.  We show prospective members the Helix and it helps show the range of things we offer, so it’s a plus in attracting new members.  Once they join people love it and I think the Helix definitely helps in satisfying & retaining members.

BUNS OF STEEL – THE MEMBERS LOVE IT

Michael Gonzales, McCook YMCA, McCook, NE

The members love it – it makes them sore but they love it.  People like it because it’s a challenge for them, and it definitely hits a muscle group that they can’t work on with other equipment.

It’s definitely a positive in maintaining our membership – takes a while for them to get familiar with it but once they get going they really like it.  We have quite a few guys who use it but most of the users are women.  I tell them they’ll have trouble going through airports because they’ll have Buns of Steel.  Once they hear that they jump on because I think that’s an important area they’re trying to target.
