ANN ARBOR, Mich., March 21, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- NuStep, Inc., a brand well known for its life-transforming exercise technology for multiple age and user groups, has announced today the launch of its latest recumbent cross trainer exercise machine: the NuStep T4r. Developed by a team of exercise physiologists and ergonomic specialists, the T4r is based on user and health care provider feedback in an effort to deliver the benefits of inclusive exercise to even more people.
The T4r provides safe and outcomes-based exercise for virtually all ability levels – including those with chronic conditions, in rehabilitation, or desiring preventative health and wellness to get the most out of life. The T4r engages users to build strength, gain independence and feel invigorated. This inclusive fitness philosophy is at the heart of NuStep's mission and allows virtually all to benefit from their line of recumbent cross trainers, no matter their age group, fitness ability level or condition.
"I've faced several challenges in my life, but nothing more difficult than finding an exercise regimen that would help me achieve a healthier life," said O'Neal Hampton, Season 9 contestant of NBC's The Biggest Loser. "I weighed 389 pounds and had severe orthopedic issues that made conventional exercise – and even climbing stairs – practically impossible. I knew something had to change, but I didn't know how to make it happen."
While competing on The Biggest Loser, Hampton used NuStep to lose 159 pounds and regained the confidence he needed to embark on a journey toward a healthier lifestyle. After the show ended, Hampton had double knee replacement surgery and used the NuStep as part of his recovery process.
"I'm here today because of the inclusive exercise – and more importantly, the belief in myself – that NuStep gave me to take command of my health and transform my life," said Hampton. "Even now that the show's over, I use the T4r every day to continue my journey toward health and wellness."
The T4r recumbent cross trainer delivers a remarkable combination of smooth motion, intuitiveness and accessibility. It combines lower extremity and upper body motion for a full-body workout in a safe, but also very effective way. The machine enables users to use their natural body movements that results in a smooth motion with minimal impact, that's easy on the joints. A sturdy grab ring for support and safety, a comfortable 360-degree adjustable seat, easy arm adjustments, comfortable handgrips and extra supportive pedals are just a few of the exciting new features.
"Achieving and maintaining health and wellness is a life-long pursuit, and we want to be there every step of the way for the people we serve," said Steve Sarns, vice president of sales and marketing, NuStep. "At NuStep, we're dedicated to creating life-transforming all-in-one recumbent cross trainers that provide safe and effective inclusive exercise for virtually all ability levels. The T4r represents our commitment to integrating user feedback, so that people like O'Neal can experience the same feeling of empowerment that transformative exercise provides."
