How does LifeTrial work?
Rather than isolating the muscles to work them independently, LifeTrail uses functional fitness, an integrated approach that encourages all the muscles to work together to better prepare the body for the demands of real life.
Each station offers three activity panels with multiple, progressive exercises to keep workouts fun and challenging.
User-friendly instructions make it easy to customise the workout according to comfort level and ability.
Users apply heir own body weight as resistance to build total-body strength, flexibility and balance.
Safety bars help beginners get accustomed to the equipment, but can be relied upon less as comfort level grows.
Smaller muscles that stabilise the joints get strengthened too, giving users greater movement and preventing injury.
Closed-chain exercises, which keep the user’s feet in contact with the ground as they bear their own weight, make their muscles work together in the same multi-joint movements they make in daily life.
