Modern Movement

The groundbreaking Modern Movement product line not only strengthens the core, but also lets users turn their workouts into a live gaming experience, measure improvement in balance and agility, or utilize a digital trainer with the revolutionary M-Trac™ app. Balance and instability training both contribute to amping up workouts to reach a higher level of achievement for exercisers of all levels, from elite athletes to fitness newcomers. The Modern Movement Product Line includes the new M-Pad™ Balance Trainer, Edge-Board™ Extension Trainer and M-Straps™ Bodyweight Trainer.

  • M-Pad Balance Trainer: Instead of only moving from front-to-back or side-to-side, the M-Pad balance trainer uses a wider range of motion to better replicate real life movements. This combination of instability and motion provides a better method for improving balance while actively engaging and strengthening core muscles. The M-Pad balance trainer is designed for beginner and intermediate training and comes complete with adjustable footpads, allowing users to customize their workouts. The M-Pad balance trainer has a low two-inch step-on height, enabling even those who have never used a balance trainer to build confidence quickly. The three, attachable rubber base pads increase the level of difficulty with each additional pad, allowing the M-Pad balance trainer to progress with users as their balance skills improve. The M-Pad balance trainer integrates with the M-Trac app, which leverages the sensors in a smartphone to measure balance ability and track improvement. Trainers, coaches and physical therapists will find the app helpful in measuring their clients’ progress.
  • Edge-Board Extension Trainer: The Edge-Board extension trainer is far more than just a tool to build rock solid abs, as the user can place either their hands or feet on the deck to initiate exercises. The Edge-Board extension trainer features a low deck height for more natural lunge movements and can integrate arcing turns into various movements to engage a broader range of muscles. The rocking deck creates instability, which boosts the challenge to core and stabilizing muscles. The braking feature helps beginners start with shorter movements, gradually increasing the length and difficulty of movement as they gain strength and confidence. Integrated into the deck are two, rubber foot pads, making it easy for the user to quickly position their feet for exercises such as Atomic Push-ups. The Edge-Board extension trainer integrates with the M-Trac app, which serves as a digital trainer. The app allows users to format their workout by selecting the difficulty, length of workout, and the parts of the body they want to focus on; it will then guide them through a customized video workout. The M-Trac app also tracks workout history by recording the number of reps, and range of motion for reference during future workouts.
  • M-Straps Bodyweight Trainer: The M-Straps bodyweight trainer uses gravity and the user’s body weight to build strength for a full-body workout. Its patent-pending features improve ease of use, and ease of adjustment over other bodyweight trainers. Printed numbers on the straps make it easy to quickly adjust and ensures the two handles are both set at the same height. Positioning the length adjustment buckle above head height keeps the numbered adjustments easy to see, as well as allowing for faster adjustments between exercises. The buckles have been moved away from pressure points on the arm for improved ergonomics. The “split” system has each handle strap attaching separately to a bar or door frame, allowing the user to adjust the width of the anchor points. This allows for a broader range of motion and can engage different muscle groups, making workouts more or less challenging, depending on the user. The anchor buckle located at the end provides a second point for length adjustment, so that the system can support up to a ten-foot ceiling, a door frame, and all ranges of user heights.

The Modern Movement product line will be available for purchase in the third quarter of 2017 in Australia, Austria, Germany, Switzerland, U.K. and New Zealand.
