Lauren Heath-Jones rounds up the latest product launches in health and fitness

By Lauren Heath-Jones, Leisure Media | Published in Health Club Management 2019 issue 9
NOHrD Bike combines form and function, says Dominik Kuprecht
Dominic Kuprecht

NOHrD, sister brand of WaterRower, has launched the NOHrD Bike after six years of development by NOHrD CEO and lead designer Dominik Kuprecht, who says he was driven by a mission to create an indoor cycle that fuses functionality with style.

Made from solid sustainable hardwood with a steel frame and wear-free braking technology, the bike boasts a number of high-tech features, including advanced planetary gear technology and an eddy brake current which ensure smooth and precise pedal action.

"The needs of the customer at the heart of everything we do"

The bike is available in two options. The NOHrD Bike comes without a monitor to ensure the bike retains its minimalist appearance, instead it is equipped with Bluetooth sensors, which send workout data to the NOHrD Bike app so users can still track their performance, while the NOHrD Bike Pro features a 19-inch touch screen display offering a library of instructor-led classes and virtual rides.

Kuprecht said: “When developing a product, my priority is always to deliver a machine that gives the user a best in class workout experience, only then do we turn our attention to creating something that is also visually stunning.”

Eric Blomberg

Eleiko, a Swedish weightlifting equipment specialist, has launched the Öppen Deadlift Bar, a deadlift bar that is designed to make weightlift training more accessible to everyone, regardless of ability.

The Öppen bar is a space-saving solution that is designed to make training more inclusive to a wide group of users. It rests on durable rubber feet that provide stable upright storage, as well as raise the ‘sleeves’ for unencumbered loading and unloading of bumpers and plates.

"We have designed a deadlift bar that makes it much more accessible"

The company has also produced a training video highlighting some of the lifts achievable with the bar, including lunges, rows, tricep kickbacks, skull crushers, shoulder presses and camber squats.

Erik Blomberg, CEO of Eleiko, said: “Deadlifting is typically done by people who are into weightlifting, but we have designed a deadlift bar that makes it much more accessible.”

The launch of the Öppen Deadlift Bar is part of the Swedish group’s efforts to widen its market potential with products that make it easier to cater to the demand for weightlifting equipment in mainstream fitness clubs.

Also called Airofit, the trainer combines breathing apparatus with an app that enables users to track their training and progress.

"With Airofit, people can train their vital lung capacity, lung muscle and anaerobic tolerance"

The company claims that with regular use the Airofit trainer can increase lung capacity, improve respiratory strength, boost anaerobic tolerance enable athletes to perform at a higher level for longer.

In addition, it can improve breathing control, reduce stress, decrease recovery times and boost circulation.

Airofit CEO Christian Tullberg Poulsen says: “With Airofit, people can train their vital lung capacity, lung muscle and anaerobic tolerance. Thus, they can achieve better performance and have a better life. That is how we create better breathing in the world”
