Why would my members like this machine?
The ELEVATE Jump™ is simple and easy to use and accommodates all fitness levels. Its versatility lends itself to be either a self-serve unit on the gym floor or part of a small group training circuit. The ELEVATE Jump™ supports the spine during a traditional squat exercise so that users can comfortably control the phases of the exercise. Additionally, it improves muscular strength, increases muscular endurance, and stimulates the neuro-muscular system for everyday activities or for enhanced athletic performance. With plyometric squats the explosive power is increased, as is joint flexibility.
How much room does the ELEVATE Jump™ take up?
You will need an area of 22 square feet to accommodate the Jump Trainer.
What is the user weight capacity?
The ELEVATE Jump™ will accommodate a maximum user weight of 400 lbs.
Can my gym members use the ELEVATE Jump™ on their own?
Yes. The ELEVATE Jump™ features a detailed placard explaining the exercises and how to use the equipment, making the units extremely approachable.
