Expresso Recumbent Bike
Expresso bikes are the new wave of the fitness industry. Their
interactive riding experience allows you to work out while engaging
competitively against a computer, your workout buddy, or other riders
throughout the world. The Expresso Bikes in the JCC Fitness Center are couple of the most
popular pieces of equipment in the gym, and we are excited to add
one more to the lineup. Just like its big brother (the upright expresso, we now have a recumbent Expresso bike!
Like all of our other Expresso bikes, it has 30
gears as opposed to a traditional 12 speed. It includes over 40
virtual tours, ranging from easy to extreme. Tours vary from
mountain paths, to city streets, and even outer space! Biometric feedback functions of the bike can track heart rate, calories burned, and power output. The new specs on this
recumbent bike allow for greater lumbar support. The "walk through design" and interactive steering handlebars provide a rider friendly set up. Whether you are a beginner or an expert rider, these
bikes are fun and easy to use and provide a great workout. Please stop by the fitness
center and give these bikes a try, you won’t regret it! If you have any further questions, please contact any of our fitness Center staff and they will be happy to assist you.
Say "HEllo" to The e520 fluid row machine
You may have noticed a new piece of equipment in the Fitness Center. Installed in early March, the NEW E520 Fluid Rower provides near perfect rowing emulation and truly feels and sounds like you’re rowing on water. It has 20 levels of variable resistance, allowing the user to modify the intensity of their workout as needed. If you haven't tried it yet, you should! Rowing is one of the few non-weight bearing sports that trains all the major muscle groups!Even just 30 minutes on this machine can improve cardiovascular endurance and muscular strength!
So what makes this machine different? Water! The design of this machine includes twin cavity tanks that are filled with water. Water is nature's perfect resistance medium. It has unique "cube rule" in regards to its physical properties, which means that in order to move twice as fast through it, you must put forth 8 times the effort! There is no slack, no slippage, no flat spots - just full on resistance always there for you at the precise moment you want it. The user is able to set the resistance level at the stroke speed desired. As the user increases workout intensity, the "fluid technology resistance unit" responds instantaneously, giving you the nearest thing to real on-the-water rowing.
for a basic and quick tutorial on how to use this machine. If you have any further questions, please contact any of our fitness Center staff and they will be happy to assist you.
