Nautilus, Inc., known for innovative home fitness equipment, recently unveiled new strength and cardio products that span the workout spectrum from calorie-burning walking regimens to smart weight training and a fitness bike.
New additions to the popular Bowflex and Schwinn brands include the Bowflex SelectTech 560 Dumbbells, Bowflex TreadClimber TC100 and TC200 models, and Schwinn Airdyne AD Pro Total Fitness Bike.
Nautilus Inc. COO Bill McMahon said of the expansion, “We constantly look for new ways to motivate and encourage our customers in their pursuit of a healthier lifestyle. The new products we’re introducing offer a more interactive and tailored workout experience than ever before. Paired with new design and innovative technology to track workouts, we’re providing our customers with the tools they need to be stronger and healthier.”
The Bowflex SelectTech 560 Dumbells are a departure from old iron. These “smart” dumbbells offer a fully interactive experience, promoting not only harder workouts but smarter ones. An integrated and proprietary 3DTrainer offers a counter that records reps, weight lifted and rep speed, as users experience audible cues after completing proper reps. The 3DTrainer app features a library of video exercises and wirelessly transfers data from their workouts via Bluetooth Smart technology and automatically syncs data to iOS and Android devices. The Dumbells will be available this winter for $450.
The popular Bowflex TreadClimber has gotten a major boost with a redesign and enhanced technology. This walking machine now combines the motions of a treadmill, stepper and elliptical to burn up to 2.5 times the calories of a treadmill. The TC200, $3299, tracks and stores up to four users’ data and allows them to set, monitor and track their personal fitness goals with the free TreadClimber App. The app automatically shares data with popular dashboards, including MyFitnessPal, Apple Health Kit, Google Fit and Bowflex Connect.
The Schwinn Airdyne AD Pro Total Fitness Bike, $999, leverages Schwinn Airdyne Technology and takes it to the next level. From the performance engineered, perimeter-weighted flywheel for smooth startup and cycling, to the strength of the splined solid steel cranks that deliver more power, the AD Pro is designed to withstand the rigors of high intensity training by the most intense athlete. Its commercial-grade components are also built to support multi-user, high workload environments – ranging from the local CrossFit affiliated gyms to rehabilitation facilities. The gem feature of the AD Pro is that it mechanically tailors to meet the users intensity – the more effort given, the more resistance it delivers.
