Our users’ experience with the Helix is fabulous – traditional equipment you find in most clubs is all linear, up-and-down, but the Helix provides lateral rotation which sets it apart and really changes the experience and benefits you get from it.
It’s a popular machine with the members, pretty much everyone uses it – our average members all the way through our athletes playing sports where lateral movement is important. The reason we encourage members to use the Helix – and why they like it – is the belief that you should workout in all the ways that your body is meant to move and, unlike other equipment, Helix can provide that with its lateral rotation.
I personally just had hip-replacement surgery. While this may be a pretty steep rehab curve because I’ve been active & in-shape my whole life, I’m working out on the Helix six weeks after that operation and it has been unbelievable for me to have access to that technology. In a rehab setting, the Helix has benefits that you simply can’t match with conventional equipment – I’m working on the abductors and adductors which you just can’t do on anything else, so it’s really a great piece of equipment.
