Most machines work front-to-back. The Helix turns tradition on its side— literally. With lateral (or side-to-side) movement, you use more muscles, which means you burn more fat than during a traditional workout– in the same amount of time. Science proves it. Plus Lateral Trainer’s motion tones your butt, core and inner/outer thighs better than old-fashioned cardio machines. Side To Side Traditional machines work the front and backs of legs: a Helix workout sculpts the entire lower body 360°. Better Than Elliptical A scientific study found that Lateral Trainers outperformed a leading elliptical on 4 out of 5 muscle groups, with 50% more core activation, 50% more outer thigh activation and 39% more glute activation. Comprehensive Workout Lateral Trainer users achieve target heart rates faster and activate more muscles than traditional cardio users. End result? A better workout in less time. Bottom Line Results Our patented lateral motion gives you the best workout of your life, with better results in less time. Try going sideways and finally get somewhere.
