Hybrid Fitness at IHRSA Episode 11 – Exerbotics (w/ VIDEO)

Hey Everyone:

This is a another episode from our adventures at IHRSA 2009 in San Francisco a couple months ago.  We stopped by the Exerbotics booth with no prior exposure to the company or their equipment.  It was all totally new to us.

What we found turned out to be pretty much the best strength equipment we’ve ever tried.  The Exerbotics line is all computer controlled and minimally built.  It’s very streamline and the computer interface is totally user friendly.

In a nutshell, the Exerbotics equipment MAXIMALLY works both the concentric and eccentric ranges on every single repetition. What you end up with is an extremely effective workout in very little time.  They are the apex of efficiency.  Check out the video and see what we mean.  The background noise and my “guerrilla” shooting style made it a bit tough, but you’ll get the idea.

I urge everyone to give this equipment a try if you get the chance.

Keep training hard!

Exerbotics in Muscle & Fitness

Hey Everyone:

Just a quick note to bring an article to your attention.  Muscle and Fitness recently did a review on a bunch of new equipment that debuted at IHRSA 2009 a couple months ago.  Amazingly, they reviewed almost all of the same stuff we did…except we did it first!

Anyhow, the line of strength equipment from Exerbotics was very well liked.  Muscle and Fitness went so far as to call it the “gym of the future”.  It’s unlikely that many of you have tried any of the Exerbotics pieces, considering they just came out, but if you get the chance, I highly suggest you give them a shot.  Be prepared to blown away at the effectiveness of the line.  The whole Exerbotics team was very hospitable -they let us hang out for a long time and try all the pieces.  We were totally blown away by the effectiveness of the equipment and yes, the next couple days we were sore as hell.

I’ll be posting a video of a small block of time we spent trying out the Exerbotics stuff.

In the meantime, here’s the article from M&F.

Be on the lookout for the video which I’ll post a bit later today.  You can see all of the other IHRSA 2009 videos on Hybrid’s YouTube Channel.

Keep training hard!

Episode #3 from IHRSA – Woodway Treadmills

We didn’t make it long at the conference before we ran into this new treadmill from Woodway.  For those who have never heard of Woodway, they make what are arguably the best treadmills available.  Totally bombproof.

This particular parabolic treadmill is self-powered, meaning there’s no speed control.  The user controls the speed by subtly moving further up or back on the concave platform.  As the user moves forward, the treadmill increases in speed and as you move back, it slows down.

After we got the rundown from one of the Woodway reps, Taku gave this baby a shot.  Trust us when I say it’s considerably more challenging than it looks.  If you get the chance, give this piece a try.

You know how much we love interval training at Hybrid Fitness.  This baby is an exceptional piece for doing sprint interval training.  We’ve got lots more to come so stay tuned for more crazy and cool videos from the IHRSA 2009 show.

Keep training hard.
