VANCOUVER, Wash., Jan. 8, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Nautilus Inc. (NYSE: NLS), a leader in innovative home fitness equipment, today announced the availability of the new Bowflex MAX Trainer™. Designed to take the popular elliptical experience to a new level, the MAX Trainer combines the movement of a traditional elliptical with a stair stepper to create a one-of-a-kind cardio workout.

"Our research shows that lack of time is one of the top reasons people put off exercising. There was a need to develop a disruptive home fitness machine that could deliver a more efficient cardio experience in less time," said Bruce Cazenave, CEO of Nautilus Inc. "The Bowflex MAX Trainer is an exciting new addition to our Bowflex brand that is known for innovations that maximize fitness benefits within the comfort and convenience of home."
The Bowflex MAX Trainer™ was designed to burn up to two-and-a-half times the calories of other exercise equipment including treadmills, steppers and ellipticals. The secret behind this new cardio machine lies in its industrial design, enabling full body movement and engaging the upper body 80 percent more than a traditional elliptical, while remaining easier on the joints than running on treadmill. It features a 14-minute interval workout that maximizes the benefits of afterburn and can increase metabolism up to 48 hours after a workout is completed.
Inspired by a motorcycle's lean and aggressive profile, its unique design incorporates a calorie gauge that mimics a speedometer showing calories burned per minute and an audio bell that rings to alert the user to the start of each interval training period.
"We looked at a variety of inspirations when we created the Bowflex MAX Trainer," said Kevin Hendricks, Senior Industrial Designer at Nautilus Inc. "We wanted it to look fast and aggressive and visually it had to drive the consumer to push past their comfort zone. The design needed to help the user achieve maximum results in a short amount of time. What we came up with is a brand new product that captivates you and allows you to focus on your workout without distraction."
The Bowflex MAX Trainer™ also provides users the ability to track their workouts with the free Bowflex MAX Trainer™ app, which wirelessly transfers all workout data via Bluetooth®. It tracks every detail – from time on the machine to calories burned – and automatically syncs workout data with MyFitnessPal®. The app also syncs data automatically with Bowflex Connect™, a free dashboard that helps you view your workout results and understand how they contribute to achieving your overall fitness goal.
The Bowflex MAX Trainer™ is now available for purchase online, starting at $999.

Many of the well-known examples of DevOps success we read in blogs on the Internet paint an idyllic picture of DevOps productivity. A team was facing a stodgy, slow-moving operations department, teams weren’t delivering software on time. Those teams moved to DevOps, became proactive about infrastructure and deployment automation, and an overnight transition to productivity ensues. People are promoted, projects are successful, and developers and system administrators dance hand-in-hand in a final...
