The Helix is popular with our members because it’s something different from the normal treadmill or stepper, so it gets used a lot. We have a varied membership – not just students but also the public – and I’ve seen a broad range of folks using it – everything from older members to our personal trainers to basketball players – both male & female, too.
I like it because it doesn’t necessarily feel like a cardio workout – it feels like you’re actually doing something functional like working on your leg strength. It offers something new & exciting to our members as opposed to the standard cardio machines. For perspective members who come in and take a tour, the Helix helps show that we offer a range of equipment that you generally don’t find, so as far as getting people in the door it definitely helps.
