Hoist Roc It Fitness System

If there’s a so-called favorite exercise machine, I’ll choose Roc Its various machines.

“Using ROX™ technology, equipment makes the user an integral part of the exercise motion by continuously adjusting the position of the user with the movement of the exercise arm.

ROX™ technology achieves an exercise movement that results in optimal biomechanical positioning and increased range-of-motion throughout the exercise. This exercise motion mimics the more natural, comfortable, and functional movements of free weight training. Additionally, the rocking movement constantly shifts the user’s center of gravity to impose small, yet appropriate challenges to the core musculature, while maintaining adequate stability.”

I totally love the leg press, the low back, chestpress and abdominals. They’re not so easy to work with especially if you put some weight. The weight ranges from…hmmm I forgot, could be about 10 up to 100 more.

I usually put up to 27 kilos. Here’s the specifics:

  • The innovative biomechanical design of the ROC-IT Plate Loaded line delivers a more natural, unrestricted, functional movement
  • Ride Oriented Xercise® provides a rocking movement that constantly adjusts the user to achieve optimal biomechanical positioning throughout the exercise
  • Integrated head support helps maintain a neutral cervical spine on rearward rocking machines
  • Molded plastic upholstery covers add a contemporary and finished look
  • Contoured footrests provide a perpendicular platform for user support and stability
  • Integrated water bottle holder, and accessory tray to keep personal items organized and out of the way of others (less clutter on gym floor)
  • Your custom logo decal placed under the instructional placards to increase brand awareness
  • Easy step through design speeds up workouts by allowing quick entry and exit of the machine
  • Integrated scuff guards are strategically placed to protect the machine’s frame finish
  • Rubber foot protectors to guard facility flooring
  • Oversized handles with bulbed ends provide a more comfortable and secure grip
  • Ratcheting adjuster system provides quick and easy seat adjustment

 

Vöslauer Balance

I’m no fan of soda water or any other flavored water but when Vöslauer got their natural mineral water combined with selected flavors and extracts of fruits and herbs, I was hooked… So did the kids. Here are three of our favorites:

Vöslauer Balance Yellow Pear

 

Vöslauer Balance Calamansi-Mandarine

 

Vöslauer Balance Red Grapes

There are many other variations of the Vöslauer balance. There’s about 12-16 calories per 100 ml, I somehow have this notion that it cleans your system, especially the one with grapefruit— also suitable for diabetics. 😉
