Redesigned to focus on true lumbar and hip extension, the Eagle Back Extension trains the muscles we use when lifting in the real world.

The Eagle NX Back Extension does a superior job of integrating all of the back muscles, from the shoulders to the lumbar spine, said Dr. Paul Juris, Executive Director of the Cybex Research Institute.

Cybex International, a leading manufacturer of premium exercise equipment, has been nominated for the prestigious FIBO Innovation Award for the Cybex Eagle NX Back Extension. As a FIBO Innovation Award winner in 2012 for the Bravo Functional Trainer, Cybex is proud to be nominated again.

The Eagle NX Back Extension is part of the super premium 15-piece Eagle NX strength line, and features refined movements, restyled aesthetics and reimagined user features – while offering extreme durability and advanced biomechanics.

“The Eagle NX Back Extension does a superior job of integrating all of the back muscles, from the shoulders to the lumbar spine,” said Dr. Paul Juris, Executive Director of the Cybex Research Institute. “It also has a unique counter balance which helps maintain the resistance through the entire range of motion.”

The Eagle NX Back Extension employs a curved lumbar pad to encourage optimal spinal range of motion, and to promote controlled movement from fully flexed into extension. A two-position lumbar pad allows users to train hip extension, lumbar extension or both at the same time. Meanwhile, the patent pending counterbalancing system offsets the user’s weight for more consistent loading and greater effectiveness.

In 2015, Cybex is also unveiling new innovations in strength, cardio and service.

In the strength category, Cybex introduces Prestige Strength VRS. This 21-piece line of selectorized strength equipment provides a premium strength option for facilities seeking an exceptionally versatile, user-friendly strength solution for "walkup and workout" users. Visually striking, truly innovative, durable, and biomechanically correct, Prestige Strength VRS has been engineered to surpass other manufacturers’ premium strength lines. The line will be available in the spring of 2015.

In the cardio category, Cybex introduces the SPARC Trainer. The SPARC Trainer is designed to meet the soaring popularity of high intensity interval training, and is Cybex’s quickest, safest, and most effective cardio experience ever. Delivering five benefits in four minutes, SPARC 1) burns calories, 2) strengthens and shapes the lower body, 3) increases stamina, 4) increases strength, and 5) enhances endurance – all while being biomechanically correct and gentle on the user’s joints. SPARC will be available in the summer of 2015.

Lastly, in the service category, Cybex introduces Cybex Care, a web-based asset management system designed to help gym owners save money, reduce equipment downtime and manage machine usage. This truly useful feature will be available on all Cybex 500, 600 and 700 Cardio Series. To complement Cybex Care, Cybex is also introducing Service Wheel, an easy to engage third wheel that allows gym staff to rotate, relocate, maintain, and clean Cybex treadmills – simply, safely, and quickly. Cybex Care and Service Wheel are available now.
