SmArT DeSIgN gIveS A bEttEr workout The barbell weights system hasn’t changed much in decades. Fastening weight plates onto a bar is slow and cumbersome, and standard plates used on their own are difficult to hold and control. So Les Mills looked at the whole system and developed a cutting-edge ergonomic design that speeds up plate transitions and helps people maximize their workout. For iconic programs like Les Mills BODYPUMPTM, getting in shape with THE REP EFFECTTM just got even faster with Les Mills SMARTBARTM. Les Mills SMARTBARTM International Patent Pending App. No: PCT/NZ2011/171

quick & Easy plate changeovers The Les Mills SMARTBARTM has a head with retractable teeth (we call it the ‘gator’) at each end that holds up to three weight plates in place. The plates simply slide on the bar and lock into place on the gator. When you need to change plates, you just pull the release lever and slide them off, making transitions fast and seamless. Because plate changeovers are much quicker and easier, group fitness participants can try a heavier weight until fatigued, reduce their weight in the middle of a set and pick up where they left off, without missing more than a couple of reps. That means they’ll get stronger faster and see better results.

Smoother movement = better form Another feature of the Les Mills SMARTBARTM that improves the quality of a workout is the rotating gators. The rotation of the weight plates means the movement of the bar up and down feels even and smooth, helping to maintain good form, which in turn gives better results.

ergONOmIC DeSIgN FOr bEttEr rEsults Regular weight plates are awkward to hold, so wrist and finger muscles fatigue before targeted muscles like shoulders or triceps. SMARTBARTM weight plates have ergonomic handles, making them more like dumbbells. Being easy to grip, people can handle heavier weights and fatigue their target muscles. The natural grip position also means injuries are less likely.

EasiEr TO STep up A LeveL The weight plate handles allow people to hold two plates in one hand, giving them more options, e.g., instead of jumping from 5.5lb (2.5kg) to 11lb (5kg) they can get there in smaller steps using the 1kg (2.2lb) plate, so they can increase their weights sooner and get stronger, faster.

Les Mills SmartBar has brawn too TM

Barbells get some pretty rough treatment in their lifetime. So we designed the SMARTBARTM to withstand wear and tear in the tough gym environment. • Each gator is engineered from Zytel, a 33% glass-fibre-reinforced nylon, for maximum strength, and over moulded with a non-marking thermoplastic elastomer, which provides superior impact protection. • To enhance strength & durability, the metal bar is made of carbon steel.
