VANCOUVER, Wash.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Nautilus, Inc. (NYSE:NLS), an innovation leader in connected home fitness, today introduced the Bowflex® Max Total® 16 cardio machine — the premier model in the popular, one-of-a-kind Max Trainer line — which includes a 16”, embedded HD touch screen that integrates with the enhanced JRNY® digital fitness platform to help members achieve their fitness goals by offering curated workouts and entertainment options that stream while being coached.
The Bowflex Max Total 16 machine blends the low impact of an elliptical and high intensity of a stepper to offer short, high intensity interval workouts in a compact design. Intended for users who want a challenging, efficient, and effective high-intensity workout, the Max Total 16 features 6-hand position dynamic handles, oversized textured foot pedals, and a magnetic resistance system with 20 levels of resistance that can be adjusted with the turn of a dial.
The Max Total 16 experience is further expanded through the integration with the JRNY digital fitness platform, so users stay engaged and motivated during high calorie burn interval workouts. The platform uses machine learning to create an infinite number of personalized workouts based on an initial fitness assessment and curated, individualized and trainer-led workouts, with new workouts added weekly. Members also have access to Explore the World content, including more than 50 routes from around the world, which auto adjust to their speed in real time, as well as access to the member’s own entertainment subscriptions like HBO Max, Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime Video and Disney+.* For a limited time only, a one-year complimentary JRNY membership is included with the purchase of a Max Total 16.
“Our innovative Max Trainer has been one of our all-time best-selling products. It combines the benefits of an elliptical and stepper in a unique high-intensity interval trainer. Now, combined with the JRNY digital platform, it provides highly personalized, challenging and engaging workouts led by world-class trainers to help our customers reach their fitness goals,” said Jim Barr, CEO of Nautilus, Inc. “Millions of people have permanently changed their workout habits as a result of the pandemic and are realizing the convenience and benefits of working out at home; it’s our mission to continue to offer connected solutions across our line of cardio and strength products.”
