New Technology Supercharges Workouts By Over 50%

  • Burns 50% + Calories, With Over 70% Muscle Activation;
  • Weighs Under 3 Lbs.;
  • Has the Functionality of Over 15 Products In One;
  • Can Be Used With Any Exercise Routine;
  • And Is 100% Mobile, It Can Go Wherever You Go!

Baton Rouge, LA, October 27, 2015 — /EPR SPORTS NEWS/ — Adrian Cornish and Nathan Roy have innovated a new technology built into wearable shorts that allow users to more than double the results of any exercise workouts, while providing a full body workout system for fitness enthusiasts as well as serious athletes.

Roy said, “Studies by the LSU School of Kinesiology have shown that users experience an average of 70% more muscular activity for muscle strength; 50% + more calories burned to shed unwanted pounds; increase in lactate threshold for increased endurance; and increased cardiovascular activity for heart health; all achieved with low level (5lbs – 25 lbs.) resistance.”

Michael James MacLellan, PhD, Assistant Professor at the Louisiana State University School of Kinesiology said, “Our preliminary research suggests that using this suit increases muscular activity at the shoulders, hips, knees and ankles during walking and running tasks. The added resistance may lead to more effective weight loss due to the increased muscle activity generated by the wearer.”

For busy people with limited time, they can cut their workouts in half, for example, getting the results of an hour in just 30 minutes. They can even wear them during normal activities.

The Apex BRS provides the functionality and comparable resistance of over 15 exercise products in one, including weighted vests, wrist weights, weighted clothing, parachutes, the Vertimax (platform based product), Mass Suit, etc. While other products target limited areas of the body, the Apex BRS provides a full body workout.

The Apex BRS are compression shorts made of a specially formulated nylon fabric that’s laminated with neoprene and reinforced with nylon webbing, giving it a tough yet pliable nature to support high levels of resistance without degrading, while being very comfortable to wear.

The compression shorts have built in attachment points at the legs and hips that act as strong anchors for several levels of resistance latex bands that attach to different areas of the body to target various muscle groups. Horizontal latex bands of interchangeable resistance strengths wrap around the thighs with resistance levels that can be adjusted from five to over 200 lbs on the legs. Optional bands wrap around the arms with resistance from five to 100 lbs.

The BRS doesn’t use any weights, instead creating resistance through the user’s natural motions. At under three pounds, the BRS has minimal hardware and is extremely comfortable to wear for longer periods of time. The combination of its light weight, the fact it’s wearable, with resistance levels surpassing the most sophisticated equipment on the market, along with the ability to use it anywhere, for any length of time, raises the bar for resistance training. It’s a tool not just for athletes, but for people of all ages and fitness levels. With the improvements users gain in speed, agility, explosion, and endurance. It’s easy to see why users feel like they’re the bionic man or woman after training with the BRS.

Tommy Moffitt, LSU head strength and conditioning coach passionately endorses the BRS, and has given his blessing in a testimonial that is on Apex’s website.

Adrian and Nathan have launched a Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign to raise $20,000 in support for their company. Backers can pledge from $18 to $5,000 for incentives that include special early bird discounts on the BRS for under $100.

To find out more about the Apex BRS, follow their updates and support their campaign, visit the Kickstarter page through November 19.

A Bold Move: 79-year old champion bodybuilder competes against 40-, 50-, 60-year olds!

Amador County, CA, May 08, 2015 — /EPR SPORTS NEWS/ — A career spanning nearly 50 years isn’t over yet for Amador County veteran bodybuilder and one of the original Mr. Venice Beach competitors, Arthur Peacock. Peacock, who is turning 80 this year, takes the stage with 40-, 50-, and 60-year olds this Saturday, May 9 at the Contra Costa Bodybuilding Championship, to be held in the Chabot College Performing Arts Theatre.

“There is no doubt that this is a career turning point for me. It’s what I’ve been training for my entire life, but especially the last three years. I’ll have 60-seconds to prove myself—my physique and my poses—with competitors between 40 and 69. That’s potentially almost 40 years younger than me.”

Peacock chose to compete in three classes for a couple of reasons—no 70s bracket existed, and he has every intention of continuing his legacy to inspire others who want to follow their bodybuilding dreams.

“I want people to see me and say, ‘I can do that. Look at that guy up there at 80.’ I want to inspire to the end; I’ve done it all my life. I’ve had world champions come up to me and say, ‘I remember when you stopped and spoke to me as a teenager, and now, 20 years later, I’m the number one guy. Thank you.’”

It was in 1965, as an already athletic young man in his early 30s, an avid swimmer, surfer cyclist, and hiker, that Peacock went as a spectator with his friends to his first bodybuilding competition. “I knew I wanted to do that—that I could do that.” And that he did, taking home his first trophy in the 1968 Mr. Venice Beach competition, which gave rise to a half-century career with more than 50 major titles earned.

In support of World Diabetes Day, Harvey Norman’s Connected Fitness team research reveals that 280 Australians develop diabetes every day

In support of World Diabetes Day (14 November), Harvey Norman’s Connected Fitness team carried out a detailed research project to uncover the extent of Australia’s type 2 diabetes problem. The worrying results indicate that an estimated 1.7 million Australians suffer from type 2 diabetes today, with up to half of these cases currently undiagnosed. Reports from The World Health Organisation indicate that the total number of diabetic Australians is expected to increase to 3.3 million by 2031, creating a healthcare timebomb for the country. An infographic to visually represent the results has been specially commissioned and can be found on the Harvey Norman website.

Diabetes can significantly impact the quality of life and life expectancy of its sufferers. Some of the potential health complications caused by the disease include kidney damage, heart disease and stroke, loss of vision, and foot ulcers leading to limb amputation. The long term impacts on the life of the sufferer, and on healthcare costs for the country, are significant. However, it is known that up to around 60% of cases of type 2 diabetescould be prevented.

Key steps that can be taken to help prevent the development of this killer disease include eating a healthy diet, cutting out tobacco, keeping alcohol consumption within sensible limits and taking regular exercise. Walking, running and cycling are all great forms of exercise that enable people to work at their own pace and can easily be carried out in the home using treadmills and exercise bikes. Harvey Norman’s Connected Fitness team are on hand to provide help and advice on suitable fitness equipment and tools that can make it easy for people to increase their levels of activity and monitor their progress.

Harvey Norman’s Daniel Hosford, says: “World Diabetes Day should be an important date in everyone’s diary. Harvey Norman understands the importance of following a healthy lifestyle in order to protect against this debilitating disease and we’d like to do our bit to support the aims of the day. Our Connected Fitness team are happy to help our customers find the right equipment to help them take part in a healthy level of exercise, and our range is also available to purchase online for those customers who don’t have a store nearby. ”

Introducing great value fitness accessories to complement all home use treadmills and vibration plates

It has been a case of ‘battening down the hatches’ for health and fitness clubs in the UK over the last few years as consumers look to cut back their spending says Mintel in their latest ‘ Health and Fitness Clubs, UK’ report. While health clubs have seen business decline or stay relatively flat private health club enthusiasts have turned to training at home and public leisure centres.

With a third of the UK population now exercising at home (Mintel, Fitness In The Home) there is now a need for increased focus on safety and equipment maintenance. ‘We are increasingly aware that at this time of year the majority of our customers are now using their home gym equipment as their only means of exercise. They have often invested in a treadmill, cross trainer or vibration plate to cut out the expense of the gym and stay warm and dry when its miserable outside.’ Lloyd Martin, Owner of JTX Fitness. However, very few home fitness equipment retailers provide customers with the information and accessories to safely exercise at home and look after their machines.

With vibration plates proving increasingly popular for home use, away from the eyes of trained professionals in gyms, it has become very important for fitness retailers to provide detailed workout instructions. JTX Fitness have launched their accessories range for treadmills and vibrations plates with home workouts and equipment maintenance in mind. ‘We know there are a lot of people simply standing on a vibration plate. Although this may be helping to tone their legs, dynamic exercises like squats or press ups are much more effective. The JTX Fitness accessories range includes a DVD and Poster to help de-mystify home vibration training for people who have not attended a vibration training class run by a trained professional. ‘We always recommend trying a range of different vibration plates at the gym and in high street salons so that so that our customers understand the different vibration styles and how best to work out on them. But this DVD and poster provides a cost effective option and great reminder for those who have stopped going to the gym’ said JTX Fitness owner Lloyd Martin. The poster and DVD provide an introduction to carrying out these exercises safely and a great full body workout. The fitness retailer has also provided a few tips from the DVD at their website so that all beginner vibration plate trainers can get started with their workouts in a safe way.

The JTX Fitness accessories range also includes products for use with treadmills. The Treadmill Lubricant, £10 which will last regular treadmill users at least a year will greatly extend the life of any treadmill. Most retailers do not provide their customers with this simple kit and many customers are unaware that they are damaging their machines by not lubricating them.

JTX’s top selling accessory since the launch of the range has been the Treadmill Floor Protection Mats, with customers eager to protect their carpet or wood floor. The clever thing about these mats is that they come in two parts, allowing the mat at the foot of the treadmill to be packed away when our folding treadmills are packed away after a workout. Made from 100% Active Foam the mats will ensure the 88kg weight of the treadmill and added force caused by running is cushioned before impacting on the floor. This product is suitable for both static and folding treadmills less than 900mm wide.
