A Helix lateral workout burns more fat in less time than a traditional workout as you raise your heart rate faster and activate more muscles thanks to its patented lateral side to side movement. And BodyTastic has the exclusive Australian distributorship for the Helix.

The Scientific Facts:
The patented lateral motion activates more muscles more quickly than other machines according to a comprehensive 2011 University of Tampa study which compared a Helix to a well know Cross Trainer. Primary findings from the study found that the Helix Lateral Trainer workouts achieved (on average):

  • 55% More Core Activation
  • 40% More Glute Activation
  • 23% Faster Achievement of Target Heart Rate
  • 50% More Outer Thigh Work
Helix Lateral Trainer Features:

  • Heavy Duty Frame and Construction for Full Commercial Use
  • Oversized Footplates
  • Lateral Movement
  • Easy to use LED Dot Matrix display
  • Activates more muscles than other cardio machines
  • 8 Exercise Programs
  • Traditional machines work the front and backs of legs: a Helix workout sculpts the entire lower body 360 Degrees
  • A scientific study found Helix 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
  • Helix users achieve target heart rates faster and activate more muscles than traditional cardio users.
