September 13, 2013 — Med-Fit Systems, manufacturer of Nautilus commercial products, introduced a revolutionary new functional training system, the XPLOAD Zone. The XPLOAD Zone was designed modularly, to be fully customizable to the user’s needs in terms of space, color, and activity requirements.
The sturdy truss, with integrated monkey bars, attachment points, and a variety of options, such as pull-up and dip bars, Olympic bar attachment and heavy bag attachment, can be custom designed either with or without Nautilus’ patent-pending EVO functional pulley stations. The pulley options shrink the footprint by 33 percent versus competitor functional training models, and provide weight increments of 2.5 pounds per handle to accommodate any exerciser. Additionally, 10′ unit with Nautilus Commercial functional trainers on both ends can accommodate up to 10 users at one time.
The XPLOAD Zone provides a heavy duty, stable truss, with a typical starting truss length of just 5′, and expandable in 20″, 40″ and 60″ increments. The frame carries an aggressive lifetime warranty. It is ideal for any fitness facility — large or small.
During his tenure as president of the commercial division at Nautilus, Jim Teatum was highly successful in developing programming and ready-made marketing that was easy for fitness facilities to synchronize with their Nautilus equipment. Today, Teatum is consulting privately with Med-Fit Systems and they have together developed the same “plug and play” type of programming for use with XPLOAD Zone equipment.
“As functional training is a trend that is persisting and the investment per square foot is significantly lower than traditional equipment, more and more gyms are finding space for dedicated functional training areas,” says Teatum. “They are using these areas and functional training equipment to boost small group exercise classes and personal training. Functional training facilities can often command a higher membership fee than many traditionally equipped gyms. For example, Cross Fit. Gym operators are looking for packaged functional training solutions. Med-Fit Systems has provided exactly what they need in the footprint-conscious XPLOAD Zone and its corresponding programming.”
