It’s a popular machine that seems to become more popular with members over time as they learn how to use it properly and get the full range of benefits it offers.  In particular, the Helix is a popular machine with our athletes because it’s the only machine that simulates the full range of athletic motion rather than just the forward and backward plane. Also, of course, women like it because it works on the adductors, abductors, quads and glutes.

We’ll also use the Helix with members coming back from knee-related problems.  While it’s important to make sure they are using it correctly, the Helix really helps in getting those folks back to full functioning more rapidly.
