We take a look at some of the latest innovations in strength equipment from around the world

Published in Health Club Management 2016 issue 4

eGym adds isokinetic mode

Digital fitness products manufacturer eGym has added an isokinetic training mode to its range of strength equipment: users can now choose isotonic or isokinetic resistance by selecting the appropriate setting. The Munich-based firm says isokinetic training reduces strain on joints, offers more precise measurement results and the ability to measure strength in joints.

The isokinetic mode on eGym varies the resistance to maintain a constant speed of movement. eGym has designed the mode with athletes and sports players in mind – to train for power and acceleration – but also for the assessment of older populations and those recovering from injury.

Plate-loaded from Precor

Precor is introducing five new pieces to its plate-loaded Discovery Series Strength range. The angled leg press, hack squat, power rack, half rack and multi-adjustable bench will be released throughout the spring.

The leg press features a 45-degree angled carriage sled and a new seat designed for precise body positioning. The hack squat seat design places the user in an upright position, while the resistance load is placed directly on the hips to recruit lower body muscles. The power rack enables the use of items like bands, chains and battle ropes alongside traditional power rack exercises, while the half rack features offers a more space-efficient footprint.

Life Fitness gets Athletic

Life Fitness will be unveiling its new Hammer Strength HD Athletic Series at FIBO 2016. Designed for facilities and clubs wanting to create a modular strength training space, the equipment has been designed in response to the growing trend of Olympic lifting.

The HD Athletic line consists of a half rack, Power Rack and half rack/Power Rack combo, along with a variety of rig configurations and add-ons for small group training needs from school level through to sports professionals. It’s available in a choice of four colours (charcoal, blue, red and platinum) for uprights and pull-up options.

Nautilus inspiration

The Nautilus Inspiration line has been redesigned with modern aesthetics and uniform towers, as well as improved biomechanics to capture natural human movement. Many machines also have increased functionality, allowing for both bilateral and unilateral movements, while converging and diverging arcs provide a natural motion.

Other design features make the machines easy to use, including a lock and load weight stack adjustment, wrap-around assisted seat adjustment, pre-stretch and range of motion controls.
