“X-Force is introduces a completely new patented method for negative training and more strength as a result. The idea behind X-Force is simple. By tilting the weight stack 45 degrees on the positive motion; we’ve been able to supply a 40-percent heavier negative stroke. The training experience is the same as with a conventional machine, with smooth movements.”
I was, while at Hareide Design, responsible for the research and concept phase of the project.
The client wanted a machine with a masculine and forceful look, aimed at the american market.
