This equipment is what Smooth Fitness refer to as a “Dynamic Motion Trainer” hence DMT.
The Smooth Agile DMT is in essence an elliptical trainer, but whereas normal elliptical machines offer only one limited motion, this equipment offers twelve “dynamic” motions and twenty levels of intensity.
Smooth Fitness claim that the equipment’s unique motion strengthens and tones muscles throughout the entire body during an intense cardio workout, yet it still minimizes joint stress like traditional ellipticals.
Here are the main features:
… the DMT experience
The trainer transforms from a normal elliptical machine to “Agile” mode by pressing a button and thereby creates a much wider range of motion, with a resultant increased heart rate. There is also a corresponding increase in muscle stimulation. The whole is claimed to dramatically increases the intensity of your workout whilst decreasing problem areas.
… motion variety
The equipment provides the user with a huge variety of movement during their fitness workout. This comes from combining 12 levels of motion and 20 levels of intensity.
The makers claim that the wide range of motions will ensure that your body will remain challenged thus ensuring that your strength and endurance continue to build rather than reach a plateau.
… articulating foot pedals
Exercising on an elliptical is a fun way to work out, but the experience has been greatly enhanced due to the patented ergonomic pivoting foot pedals used on this machine. The articulating foot pedals with shock-absorbing cushions reduce joint stress and eliminate the heel slap that can cause toe numbness and sore arches.
… thumb controls
Clever design allows the user to adjust both the intensity and motion levels without taking their hands off the handlebars. This is achieved with the patented Lite Touch Thumb Controls. With a shift of a thumb over an infrared sensor, the machine can vary intensity and transform from a standard elliptical to the other Agile modes without any interruption of workout.
… workout programs
The key to staying motivated when using any fitness equipment and achieving your fitness goals is having a variety of preset programs. This trainer gives you 12 distinct patterns of motion combined with combined with 20 different levels of intensity.
… personalized workouts
Using the Manual Program you can create your own personalized workout, or simply experiment with the available options. Basically there are three Target Programs to choose from.
The “Time” program allows you to choose a preset time interval or key in your own. You can then use the Elite Touch thumb sensors to vary the intensity and motion pattern.
The “Distance” program allows you to choose a preset distance or enter your own. You can use the amazing Lite Touch thumb sensors to vary the intensity and motion pattern.
The “Calories” program is an ideal program for those who are watching their calories or have goals based on calorie counts. Simply enter the number of calories you would like to burn and begin. For an added challenge, use the Lite Touch thumb sensors to adjust the intensity and motion pattern.
… interval training
This program allows you to reach for your target heart rate and improve cardiovascular endurance with higher intensity routines. Alternate high-intensity periods with periods of cool-down. The intervals within this program offer great balance between cardio, fat burning and muscle toning. Each interval can be adjusted at will.
… endurance training
This program commences in warm-up mode, and then gradually increases the intensity incrementally to burn fat and calories and build stamina. A cooling down period follows the final level of intensity. Each of the eight levels is adjustable. Vary Agile motions along the way for maximum benefit.
… watts control
This program uses “Watts Control”. The wattage level can be pre-selected or you can select your own. Resistance changes automatically during this routine, but can be adjusted if needed.
… fat burning
It is well known that exercising for longer periods of time at a reduced level of intensity encourages your body to burn more calories and fat. The preset levels are optimal for this routine, but are completely customizable to suit any fitness level.
… heart rate control
The Heart Rate Control program consists of a Warm-up, Main Program and Cool Down. The elliptical machine determines a preset maximum target heart rate based upon your sex, height, weight and age, or you can adjust it to whatever maximum target workout rate you want.
Once you start, the program takes you through a mild warm-up routine, a powerful workout and a cool-down phase for a complete cardio program. All settings are customizable.
