On Monday I attended the Sweat In the City event sponsored by Nautilus to promote their brand spankin new product line. The words above were what they used to describe their “innovation package”.
From the newbie to the fitness guru, Nautilus says that their products are for everyone. One of the things I was most I pressed by was their integration of a second screen on their cardio machines. You know how when you are on the average cardio machine and you put your phone, iPad, ect on the little holder and you cover the screen displaying your workout details? Well that doesn’t happen with their machines. They listened to consumers and integrated a second display so you can always see your workout progress.
Inspiration( to get you to the next level)
This MAXSystem Elliptical can give you a killer workout in 14 minutes.
Yes, I said 14 minutes. I was on the machine for less than 5 minutes and was out of breath, so I can only imagine what 14 minutes would feel like.
Last but definitely not least, I want to mention Bowflex Boost that was given out as you left the event. For $49.95, half of the FitBit price, you get the same technology. It’s a little bulkier than the FitBit Flex BUT it does exactly the same things.
But there is a major drawback… They have not created an Android compatible application to sync the data as yet. Major womp. It’s 2013, Nautilus! There are a lot more innovative phones out there besides the iPhone! Luckily, I have an iPad, but that’s not nearly as easy to tote around as my phone. I plan on testing it out for a week and hopefully comparing it to the FitBit.
Overall, the event was a lot of fun! And I finally got to meet Brittany from My Own Balance in person. She is such a sweetheart. I would post the picture….but I look super tired. 🙂 Next time I’ll try to pep it up more! I was also with Nellie (my blog sister from another mister), Cassandra, Patty, and Nadia. Anytime I get to hang out with blog friends, I am happy.
Do you own any cardio machines? If so, what brands?
Note: I was not compensated or required to write this review. Nautilus invited me to the event, but there were no social media or blog posting requirements. All opinions are my own.
