Fresh AIR for Your Favorite HIIT Workouts

Keeping up with the #1 fitness trend for 2018 means stocking up on popular HIIT training equipment and accessories. High Intensity Interval Training has remained one of the most popular training modalities for gym, studio, and home-based workouts for the past four years. One of the many reasons for the rise in HIIT popularity is the accessibility – all you need for a workout is your body weight and perhaps a timer/stopwatch.

However, each year it seems there are more and more fitness programs and equipment that are falling into – or being adapted to fall into – the HIIT training “bag of tricks”. Even larger fitness equipment manufacturers are making more products meant to be used at high intensity for short periods of time. Think about it – how many new sprint treadmills have you seen popping up lately?

In addition to indoor rowers and sprint trainers, there is another line of cardio pieces that is also popular to integrate into HIIT training workouts – the Air Bikes. Power Systems has THREE great Air Bikes to choose from. Check out the details for each below to see which one best suits your HIIT training needs.

Octane Airdyne Line

These bikes have been around in one version or another for nearly 40 years. Schwinn invented the Airdyne bike technology in the 1980’s and has been updating it to meet the demands of the fitness industry ever since. The latest Octane Airdynes are powered by a single stage belt drive that provides a smooth, quiet ride – superior to the competition that offers a 2-stage chain drive. Each is built with superior quality and materials to stand up to your toughest HIIT workouts while providing smooth resistance for steady state cardio training.

In addition to the smooth acceleration and ride of the Octane Airdynes, you will also notice the quick “catch” of air by each of the 26-fan blades! Other air bikes on the market feature only 6 fan blades to cut the air.

Each Octane Airdyne built with superior quality and materials to stand up to your toughest HIIT workouts while providing smooth resistance for steady state cardio training. Wide, comfort seats, water-proof digital displays complete with built-in training programs, and dual-grip urethane coated handles are just a few of the quality upgrades you will experience with the Octane Airdynes.
