SCIFIT’s three new seat options include a premium reclining seat to replace the former standard bucket seat on its line of exercise equipment especially suited for the medical market. The options give users more ways to adjust for an accommodating, comfortable and customized fit during exercise. Along with its 23-inch reclining range of motion, the premium seat features a 360-degree swivel that locks at each 90-degree angle for safety. It offers a broader, 4.5-inch seat-height range that adjusts from 18.5 inches to 23 inches to accommodate more body types. The seat adjusts forward and back on a proprietary, level monorail, with no sloping action to prevent unintentional motion and to enhance control. Non-reclining standard and bariatric versions of the new seat, with forward and backward adjustability only, are also available. Designed to be the same width as the legacy option, they feature premium, non-slip upholstery and a custom shape that is angled under the user's thighs to reduce hamstring interference during exercise. The premium seat holds up to 450 pounds, while the standard and bariatric options hold up to 500 and 600 pounds respectively.

Harbinger's Women’s Training Grip Gloves give women the support and protection they need for longer workouts and better results. Designed specifically to fit a woman's hand with smaller sizing, better contouring and strategically placed material panels, these gloves help prevent calluses and reduce grip fatigue.

Simultaneously, the gloves' proprietary TechGel cushioning protects the palm and fingers. The gloves have unique Comfort Tech layered fabrics that stay smooth and comfortable even after cleaning.

Excellent for reducing grip fatigue when doing hang snatches, heavy pulls and deadlifts, the straps are an extended 21 inches in length and a full 1.5 inches wide for greater surface area to wrap and grip the bar. Harbinger's proprietary DuraHide real leather comfortably conforms under the hand and around the bar with no added bulk. Advanced NeoTek padding cushions the wrist during heavy lifting. The straps feature a tri-layer design to maintain shape, heavy-duty construction to prevent tearing, and a red colorway that stands out in a crowd of black and white straps.
Stages Cycling extends its brand with the Stages Indoor Cycling and the SC Series line of commercial and high-end retail indoor cycling bikes. The two models in the SC Series are the flagship, SC3, with innovations, including the Stages power meter, and the SC2, which does not include the Stages power meter. The bikes share two never-before-seen concepts, which have patents pending: SprintShift and FitLoc. SprintShift is a dual-action resistance adjustment, which pairs a traditional micro-adjust dial with a three-position macro-adjust lever. The SprintShift lever allows large, consistent jumps in resistance for intervals and rest. FitLoc replaces the standard twist-to-lock pop-pin height adjustments with cam-operated pop-pin. These innovations are paired with the pro-peloton-proven Stages power meter on the SC3 model, which sports Stages rider-powered EcoSCRN console. That console uses a hub dynamometer rather than batteries. Both the SC3 and SC2 bikes use the CarbonGlyde drive system with a 5:1 gear ratio and high-inertia flywheel.

Total Gym's Jump Trainer not only helps users safely jump, but it also has taken the squat jump and made it possible for anyone, at any level of fitness to begin training, and progress to whatever their individual goal may be. Users have room to progress from basic squats using a fraction of a person's bodyweight as resistance to complex plyometric movements. Part of the Total Gym Elevate Line, the Jump Trainer employs incline linear bodyweight resistance. Seven incline levels allow users to adjust the resistance so they can work out using between 45 percent to 80 percent of their own body weight. For the first time, Total Gym has incorporated optional variable band resistance (VBR) into the Jump Trainer. Four resistance bands offer an additional 10 pounds to 70 pounds of resistance in 10-pound increments. Providing a safe environment to perform squats and squat jumps, the trainer features a large, ergonomic glideboard that supports the spine during movements. Designed to ensure proper alignment throughout movements, a specially designed, curved squat stand follows the anatomic curve of the hip to foot ratio and a pneumatic brake adds an additional 15 pounds of resistance. Personal trainers can track client’s progress or power using a built-in Jumpometer. The Jump Trainer includes an instructional placard illustrating basic exercise options and a QR code that takes users to the Total Gym website where they can find video demonstrations of more advanced, athletic moves.
