Magnetic Resistance and Self Powered Exercise Machines

March 8th, 2019

Electricity is so yesterday. At Driven Fit, our innovative equipment incorporates magnetic resistance. This means, our gym equipment is powered by exercisers. Here, you have to push yourself to feel the burn of an intense workout. Our mission is to guide our clients through a positive health and fitness journey.  We do this by encouraging hard work, by creating unique challenges for every single client. Magnetic resistance machines adapt to your level so your individual fitness goals are met. Let’s take a closer look…

Benefits of Magnetic Resistance

At Driven Fit, we use magnetic resistance and self powered exercise machines that use magnetism and electricity to provide users with a variable resistance. Science moment: Magnets attract or repel each other, depending on the charge of their poles.  Electricity comes into play by passing an electric current through the magnets.

Depending on the machine, users can push a button to increase the current magnetic flow, and increase the resistance.  

Here are a few other benefits:

  • A wider range of resistance settings to make your workout more challenging over time
  • Intensity controlled generally with one simple dial
  • Whisper-quiet and smooth operation so all clients can fully enjoy their workout time

Self Powered Exercise Treadmills

This is one of our trainers’ favorite machines and every client runs or walks 1.5 miles (you can do it) on it during your initial consultation. The motor-less, curved treadmill and  Responsive Belt Technology reacts to every subtlety in your movement; your balance, posture, hip position, foot strike and more. You instantly feel when your body is not in the optimal position for running or walking.

Burn up to 44% more calories and push yourself to the limit. TrueForm will go as fast as you can with no maximum speed. Meaning, curved treadmills have no speed limit; this makes them perfect for more advanced athlete who are comfortable at a pace that may be faster than the top-speed of a standard motorized treadmill.

In addition to adjusting your pace to mimic road or track style intervals, the self-powered treadmill at our South Tampa fitness studio allows you to run with a natural strike on the balls of your feet. This small change in running style uses more muscle groups in the body as compared to the traditional heel strike of many runners. By hitting on the ball of your foot, it pushes your body forward creating the momentum to turn the curved treadmill belt.

Magnetic Resistance Bikes

In order for magnetic resistance bikes to work, a flywheel is key. Flywheels are wheels that resist changes in their rotational velocity (the speed at which they turn).  In a magnetic resistance bike, the flywheel is linked to the magnets and electric current controls the level of resistance. When a user peddles a variable resistance bike at its basic level, energy is supplied to overcome the resistance and turn the wheel.  The energy comes from the movement of the user’s muscles, and that is what helps burn calories.

Other Magnetic Resistance Exercise Equipment

Pretty much any workout equipment has a magnetic resistance version: ellipticals, cross trainers, and rowing machines. Our industry is putting more emphasis on your individuality and workout needs. And it shows by having a variety of options available for any type of workout you love.
