In this video we overview the Incline Trainer and speak of its benefits from the perspective of someone using it in a club.

Here’s on introduction to the FreeMotion Incline Trainer

Increased heart rates while Incline Training: Research shows that walking only two mph at a 24% incline yields greater heart rates than running six mph at zero incline. Meaning that incline training is a highly effective way to get in shape and train your heart, without painful joint impact and jarring.

Fat utilization with Incline Training: Walking at a 21% incline, again at only two mph, is the most effective way to improve the way your body looks. Research shows that walking two mph at 21% incline burns approximately 6.8 kcals per minute, which comes from your fat stores. The calories you burn running, with no incline, come from  your energy stores. In other words, the fat you burn training at an incline will come off the unwanted fatty areas of your body, as apposed to the food you ate that day.

Biomechanics: Walking or running on the Incline Trainer forces the user to use proper biomechanics (e.g. correct foot strike), therefore it forces the body to move more efficiently, reducing wasted energy and lessening chance of injury. The opportunity to walk or run at a decline allows for specificity of training in a controlled environment, which is ideal for the elderly as well as female athletes. Decline training teaches the muscles to decelerate, greatly reducing chance of injury when faced with a difficult, uncontrolled environment.

Muscle activation: When walking at a 27%-30% incline: the Glutes are activated 100% (more than when performing squats); the hamstrings are activated 73% and the calves are activated 90%! There is not a machine available that will activate those three muscle groups at that level of intensity at the same time. If you are looking to tone and strengthen your lower body, the Incline Trainer will get the job done faster and safer than any other machine out there.
