The NuStep Difference in the Gym

To increase your membership numbers, you should show that you care about being all-inclusive. We all want to be at our athletic best, that’s why we are in the fitness industry. As you strive to be the best fitness leader, motivator and business person, you know to be successful you’ll have to maintain and increase clientele. It is vital to have a facility that offers a vast array of fitness equipment in order to increase membership.

A growing trend among fitness centers is to be as inclusive as possible. There are several reasons: to be the go-to center for physical therapist referrals, the active aging group and those who simply can’t use the current equipment due to size, age or functionality. Most importantly, it will increase membership.

The clients who walk through your doors may want to achieve a level of athletic independence or they may desire a low impact range of motion on a machine that can still guarantee a sweaty, heart pumping, muscle strengthening workout. You’ll need a cutting edge exercise machine, that can be used by virtually everyone who joins your gym.

NuStep will push them to their limits and deliver a fierce workout set, in the safest and most accommodating way possible.

NuSteps allow virtually any individual to ease into exercise and make a transition to an active, healthy lifestyle while providing a fun, energetic and engaging way to workout. The design of our machine is preferred and recommended by most physical therapists. Our cross trainers allow users the ability to move from a step-to-cycle motion.

It is paramount to health care professionals that patients can continue care beyond physical therapy. When the sessions are over, mostly due to coverage, the therapist generally recommends continued therapy. Many physical therapists advise their patients to join gym facilities that offer NuStep machines, once therapy sessions have concluded.

NuSteps are used for most therapies, including: orthopedic, cardiac and neurological therapies. As a result, fitness centers are getting requests for the NuStep by name.

It’s comfortable design and easy accessibility makes NuStep a perfect fit for practically anyone. We make sure our product can accommodate almost any user, no matter their size, aliment or circumstance. There is a level of care and comprehension in the NuStep design that really focuses on how a user will benefit by interacting with our product.

You might ask yourself: why is NuStep a great choice for your professional business?

Mark Arrington owner of Anytime Fitness in Madison, Wisconsin, said, “I opened a new Anytime Fitness in January 2015 and wanted to add some equipment that was unique to our gym, in regards to what other facilities around us had.

I knew the population around our town was diverse. I purchased the NuStep as a way to help all of our clientele have a safe and effective way to exercise.”

Arrington continued, “The NuStep has far exceeded my expectations. It is used at all times of day, by a range of ages and different people.

We also have a partnership with the local senior citizens group. The people that come in with them flock to the NuStep as their means of exercise.

I am happy that I purchased our NuStep and due to the high use of our members, we may look at purchasing a second. My T5 is very low maintenance and is in use 6 – 7 hours a day. It’s definitely the most popular piece of equipment.”

NuStep’s are extremely durable. Our products are hand crafted, Michigan made, and built to last. Purchasing a NuStep is an investment that will withstand time even with constant use.

In a professional setting, the costs to maintain NuStep brand equipment are significantly less than other machinery. NuStep’s basically require no maintenance other than the occasional battery change.

Another NuStep advantage is our accessories. We allocate a lot of time developing accessories that can accommodate as many different people and ailments as possible. Our engineers go above and beyond so virtually anyone can use our machines. NuStep accessories give many disabled users more mobility. They are specifically custom fit for each NuStep.

Daryl Kucera, owner of Fast Forward Gym (athletic conditioning) and owner of the non-profit entity MSForward (adults with MS, other chronic issues, elderly), currently serves approximately 200 – 250 clients weekly.

Kucera wanted to develop a gym where individuals who suffer from MS and other ailments, could reap the benefits of all-inclusive exercise. He invested in NuStep and it has been a game changer for his business as well as his personal health.

“I myself was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis one month, to the day, after we opened our gym in 2001. My disease has progressed to the point where I require a power chair for transit,” Kucera said.

“The T4 NuSteps that we currently have are a significant piece of my wellness “tool box.” Even though I can no longer take the multiple steps necessary to build extensive muscular and cardiovascular strength, our NuStep provides a remedy for both. In my opinion, our NuStep has allowed me to lead a lifestyle of health and activity after my diagnosis. MS is a disease that normally puts a limit on your abilities but NuStep keeps me active” Kucera continued.

NuStep is in the business of transforming lives. Nustep can also transform your business with our all-inclusive cross-trainer machines. NuStep can help your facility reach a wider range of clientele and enter the adaptable fitness market.

    I used a NuStep in my in-patient rehab stay following my stroke in 2005. I really miss it’s extremely safe process for me to get some real exercise, without the fall risk of walking on a treadmill with my weak leg’s spasming ankle, and even more I miss the good stretch that it gave my contracting left arm. I am finally able to afford to get my own and will be ordering one for my home. I am very excited and can hardly wait, just have to wait until a room is prepared for it here, where my brother will also relocate my treadmill into, so that we will have a home fitness room for everyone in the house to utilize.

    Hi My NuStep Family and Friends.
    I would like to give an update on my recovery from my hip and joint replacement.
    Well it has been three weeks since I have been out of the hospital and the recovery is going well.
    The only problem I’m having with recovery is mentally I’m trying to rush. LOL
    But the doctors have forewarned me that this is not something I can rush or it could be worse. Like if I dislocate my hip at this point, I would have to have the surgery all over again and the recovery time is twice as long. So needless to say they didn’t have to tell me that twice. I still can’t drive for another couple of weeks, I can’t bend my knee or my right side more than 90° getting up or down for a couple more weeks, I can’t cross my legs and a few other things. The muscles has to get stronger and bond with new hip and joint.
    I’ll be back on my NuStep in a week. (Which is going to be the only equipment that I’ll be using for my rehab) Which makes total sense seeing that’s all I need. LOL
    Can’t Wait because to me that’s when my recovery starts. ��
    Thanks Everyone for the support I have been receiving. It means a lot. ��
    O’Neal Hampton Jr.

    I have used these in rehab for several years. Only machine I ever enjoyed. Wasted a lot on a cheaper one that I hated. I got my excise down pat and .now I will not drive 30 minutes to excise. Got a tablet and can get internet so hope I am set.

    I first used the NuStep T4r in cardiac rehab after having my aortic valve replaced. After completing rehab, I missed using it so much I purchased one for my home. My sons are 12 & 9 - they also use the NuStep

    We were introduced to the T4r while at our local YMCA. My husband is having a hard time with balance and walking safely. He has found that the NuStep trainer gives him the workout he likes without the worry of taking a fall (as has happened on the walking track). We will drive the distance several times a week just to make sure he can get the workout. Thanks NuStep!

    I love our T4r. Ended up in ICU because most of my hormones had been depleted. Definitely was not fun! Ended up in Rehab where I basically had to learn to walk again. It was there I discovered NuStep. Using it I was walking within that same week. Now having one at home I use it several times a day. To me it is well worth the cost! Thank you for such a terrific unit that's easy on my knees!

    NuStep got me on my feet again after 4 spinal surgeries and a stroke. I do not think I would be walking today without the help...and now I will have one in my home to keep me going all year round!

    I have had MS for about 20 years now, diagnosed first with RRMS and have progressed to the stage of SPMS. Physical therapy has always been a challenge for me, not so much in doing the therapy, but getting to the facility. Just getting to the PT facility was the PT itself. Also, as anyone with MS knows, one typically has a time during each day when your symptoms seem to be more manageable. For me that is the early evening. After years of struggling and ultimately giving up on getting to the facility (FT day job + family responsibilities), I decided to purchase the T5XR for in-home use. I love it. I can now do my exercise at a time that works for me (early evening). I have a long way to go, but I am up to 45 minutes at Level 4, about 2.25-2.50 miles. What a difference this machine has made in my life. Thank you so much.

    This NuStep recumbent cross trainer made a huge difference for me while I was in a high quality, skilled nursing rehab facility, which I needed as part of my recovery following a serious accident, from being hit by a car turning the corner that threw me off my path while attempts to get across the crosswalk. The accident resulted in my having multiple fractures in my leg, pelvis, and ribs. After a week of starting intensive physical therapy, I was introduced to the NuStep, used it diligently practically every day from then on, even while I was in a brace and not ready to put weight on my leg & knee, which went for the ride, but still this enabled me to get healing from the motion, after nearly two months of use, on top of all the therapeutic efforts, I was walking again. I've left the facility and now looking for a fitness place in my area that has the NuStp. It was a life-savor for me, and miss it already.

    I have primary progressive multiple sclerosis and right arm and leg are very weak. Before being introduced to the NuStep at a rehab center, no other exercise equipment had worked for me. With the leg brace and the hand grip assist I was able to for the first time in years. I'm up to 60 minutes and 4700 steps on level 5.

    First used this after my knee replacement therapy. Decided some time later that I needed to exercise at home so I picked a Nu Step T5XR. It sits by the TV which helps me going. Just finished my first mile in one sitting! Well worth the money!
