2.5X more calories burned every minute

An independent study pitted MAX against treadmills, steppers, and ellipticals with users working out at the same pace and intensity. In the end, users burned more calories on MAX than every cardio machine tested by up to 2.5X per minute! In fact, trial users have burned up to 600 calories or more in 30 minutes. How's that for MAX burn?


Less time with max results

Research tells us that "lack of time" is the #1 barrier to working out. That's why the breakthrough Max Interval workout was designed for those with speed in mind. You'll get all the cardio benefits of a much longer workout in just 14 minutes. Strengthen your heart and lungs and improve your endurance and stamina — all while incinerating calories faster than you ever thought possible.


See your burn as it's happening

MAX's unique BURN RATE display puts you in control, showing you exactly how many calories you're burning every minute and setting activity level targets throughout your workout. It's an incredibly motivating tool that pushes you to challenge yourself in every workout. Plus, MAXimize and track every workout with the free Max Trainer® App (Android / iOS), which can sync with Apple Health™.

Full Body

Max engages it all

Ellipticals claim to be a full body workout, but they don't come close to MAX. Testing in the lab showed it engaged more core and lower body muscles than ellipticals and up to 80% more upper body. Now you can get more done in less time.


Virtually zero impact

MAX is gentle on your body, but tough on calories. Running at even a moderate speed produces up to 200% more impact on your body than a Max Trainer® workout. That's training smarter — not harder.


It keeps going... and going...

Burn now and burn later. The 14-minute Max Interval workout uses simple science to deliver very complex (and amazing) results. Small bursts of activity followed by longer periods of rest keep your body guessing and ramp up your metabolism to burn additional calories for hours after your workout.
