The added motivation they feel when they adjust the incline higher and pull up more of their body weight has been exciting to watch.

The personal trainers have been coming up with many innovative ways to use each piece and the transition from one machine to another is seamless.” - Gretchen Collins, Director of Fitness at East Bank Club in Chicago, IL.
