Smart Products Feature Built-in Motivation

Bowflex Max Trainer(R): Representing Award-winning Innovation

The revolutionary Bowflex Max Trainer(R) was designed to burn up to two-and-a-half times the calories of other exercise equipment, including treadmills, steppers and ellipticals. It features a 14-minute interval workout that maximizes the benefits of afterburn and can increase metabolism up to 48 hours after a workout is completed.

The Bowflex Max Trainer(R) also provides users the ability to track their workouts with the free Bowflex Max Trainer(R) app that wirelessly transfers all workout data via Bluetooth(R) Smart technology. It tracks every detail – from time on the machine to calories burned – and automatically syncs workout data with Apple Health as well as MyFitnessPal(R). The app syncs data automatically with Bowflex ConnectTM, a free online dashboard that helps users view their workout results and understand how these results contribute to achieving their overall fitness goal. In the first nine months since Max TrainerTM has been on the market, more than 36,000 workouts and nearly 9,000 workout hours have been tracked on the app.


Nautilus(R) Cardio Series: Combining Quality and Connectivity

The new Nautilus(R) 616 cardio series of elliptical, treadmill, and upright and recumbent bikes combine premium features with ground-breaking technology to offer users the ultimate at-home workout experience.

These smart machines feature a DualTrackTM multi-LCD display console with Bluetooth(R) Smart technology, so users have access to the new Nautilus(R) TrainerTM app to track workout time, distance traveled and calories burned. The Nautilus(R) TrainerTM app allows users to tailor goal-setting and track the metrics based on personal preference. In addition, this innovative app provides real-time coaching to monitor progress during the workout.

Users can also sync, record and store every workout for quick reference via the Apple Health app, as well as MyFitnessPal, and then share all results with friends and family through a variety of social media channels.
