1-The hummingbird machine, the first I patented, is similar to the elliptical; however the feet move side to side, in a reverse double Dutch motion. Moving up on the inside, and downward pressing on the outside. The motion will be more oblong than circular, but the feet will move just as double Dutch ropes (reversed pattern, swing ropes up and outward, not inward and down). The pedals at the bottom will be spreadable, from a standing position to a squat position; specifically targeting glutes. This machine is designed to induce cardio for fat burning, and build specifically the butt muscles. Allowing the user to skip the squats.
2-The dogo is my favorite. This is inspired by rollerblading and vitruvian man. The user will hold a weighted or resistance set bar either a over head in barbell position, or at chest in pull up position. There are pedals on tracks at the bottom, that make almost like an Atari symbol. We want a down and out motion to work glutes. Sorry about the drawing. As I stated, I nearly needed to be able to show the general idea of the product. This will actually be high quality. The pedals will be 3-way positional, front (down and forward), side (down and to the side), and back (down and to the back). The pedals will come up as high as knees to chest, then flow down and out, alternating legs.
3-The Dragonfly sets the user in an incline push up position. The user holds a handlebar that also extends and retracts from the safety mat underneath the torso, to give an “ab wheel” effect, if the user chooses. Push ups are also optional, while the user moves their feet on an oblong bike pedal, inducing cardio. Although, just holding the body in the incline push up position is also an upper body workout.
4-The monarch is a tug of war machine. A great total body workout at high resistance, or an upper body cardio machine at low resistance over an extended period. This machine has a free pull option, and a ratchet safety system. To enact free pull, the user slides up a safety mat over the wheel; in case of loss of grip (also one In the back in front of back pulley) the user will have a safety mat to crash into. With the ratchet system, there is no worry of flinging the body forward, and aesthetically I believe seeing the wheel and rope is better, so the mat is down. The back pulley can adjust from floor, to thread between legs, to up higher, to pull over your shoulder (preferably feet on steps). (I feel weight lifters will also love this machine. While cardio users can include an upper body only cardio workout. Switching it up.)
5-The grasshopper takes the treadmill up a notch. There are added threads at adjustable angles on both sides of the primary tread. Giving the user a side to side leaping motion.
6The crow is a machine that sets the body in a reverse incline push up position. The user holds their angled body (preferred optimal is around 45•) over a reclining chair safety mat (that will computer adjustable for the users height and desired angle, chair, pedals, and bar) while inducing cardio with a teardrop bike pedal at bottom. The user can do “pull ups”, or simply holding themself at this angled position, is a full upper body workout. (Weight lifters may also really enjoy “feeling the burn” of this machine, and the upper body workout.)
Please excuse my drawings. I am looking to make high quality, top end machines. I am just not an artist. Please help.
