The Origin OUB1 Upper Body Trainer offers users a challenging full body workout that can be applied as a stand-alone cardio feature or as an exciting component in circuits and high-intensity training sessions.
The OUB1 draws inspiration from the biomechanics associated with Nordic or cross-country skiing; two incredibly demanding disciplines as anyone who has tried them can confirm. The movement recruits all major muscle groups and similar to rowing; requires smooth technique, and cardiovascular endurance combined with a powerful pull to spin the flywheel.
Using a magnetic resistance system, users can adjust the machine to suit the strength of their own stroke. Effort and performance can both be monitored on the LCD console which offers 15 pre-programmed workouts and a built-in heart rate receiver.
A key space-saving feature on the gym floor is the OUB1’s ability to be wall mounted or free standing – the free-standing option instead of coming with wheels for easy transportation.
All these features make the OR1 a great option for gyms looking to bring something different to their cardio space or add a new challenge into their high intensity or group training sessions.
Additional attachments available include the Pro Oar Bar and Pull Bar. These can add extra movement options for users and increase the variety offered by the OUB1.
