Core Health & Fitness expands Nautilus Leverage product line

Strength training has purpose and appeals to members of all ages and backgrounds, regardless of specific fitness goals.

While it can come in an abundance of forms, the root benefits of the movements are universal, helping users improve bone health, maintain muscle tissue, increase cardiovascular health and increase body strength.

Most strength movements can be performed either traditionally with free weights or assisted via machine-based training methods, however, strength training can be overwhelming and scary to someone new to using weights for working out.

Concerns are largely based upon beginner’s fear, user error and safety when lifting heavy weights without a spotter.

This initial learning curve of understanding correct form, which weight to use and what exercises to perform, could cause a beginner to abandon the idea of strength training altogether.

This is why assisted strength movements can be a fantastic resource for gym users of all experience levels as assisted strength machines tend to be beginner-friendly, don’t typically require a spotter and can isolate certain muscle groups.

Strength training specialist Nautilus was inspired by this to create the Leverage Deadlift Shrug as an ideal solution for those seeking the benefits of the deadlift movement on an assisted machine.

This new easy to use, safe and effective product from the renowned Leverage line is a perfect fit for facilities hoping to expand their free weight, functional, or plate loaded areas.

With a defined path of motion, even the newest strength training members can feel comfortable beginning their journey.

Gym staff can relax as members use the Deadlift Shrug without worries of potential clientele injury.

It’s not uncommon to scrape the barbell on the front of the shins, especially when first learning the deadlift exercise but with the Leverage Deadlift Shrug’s pivoting handle design, the risk to the user is eliminated.

The controlled load keeps the user in control of the exercise; allowing guests to choose the stress they are hoping to accomplish by increasing or decreasing weight or rep schemes.

Adjusting these factors can allow gym members to perform progressive training to build endurance and strength.

Typical plate loaded machines utilise free weights such as bumper or Olympic plates for resistance while continuing to protect the intended path of motion for the user. Leverage takes this innovation one step further.

The Leverage line from Nautilus is best in class, complemented by integrated weight storage.

It ensures low load points for safe and simple use, offers unilateral independent movement arms and mimics the biomechanics of a high-end selectorised strength piece while still providing lower frictional resistance during the movement.

The Leverage Deadlift Shrug gives users the option to include deadlifting, a highly beneficial movement, into their workouts with ease.

As members continue to utilise the machine, they’ll see improvements in strength, endurance and overall functional fitness.

The shrug, mirrored after the deadlift movement, mimics common movements performed by individuals daily. This functional fitness training will lead members to live healthier, safer lives by teaching proper form for lifting and building full-body strength.

The Leverage Deadlift Shrug is the bridge members crave to test the waters of strength training and trust in themselves.
