We’ve had our Helix Lateral Trainers in the club for over two years, and people genuinely like them. They seem to be generally popular across all our members, so there’s no particular group that gravitates to them.
For example, a lot of the people with knee problems like them because they are non-impact. And the ladies in general like them because the Helix works the inner and outer thighs, which can be a problem area for women. And of course, we have a lot of athletes involved in high school sports that really like using the Helix because it simulates lateral athletic motion and works those muscle groups that other machines don’t.
When we show club to prospective members, we always show the Helix because it promotes cross training, particularly for sports.
