"Our research shows that lack of time is one of the top reasons people put off exercising. There was a need to develop a disruptive home fitness machine that could deliver a more efficient cardio experience in less time," said Bruce Cazenave, CEO of Nautilus Inc. "The Bowflex MAX Trainer is an exciting new addition to our Bowflex brand that is known for innovations that maximize fitness benefits within the comfort and convenience of home." 

The Bowflex MAX Trainer™ was designed to burn up to two-and-a-half times the calories of other exercise equipment including treadmills, steppers and ellipticals. The secret behind this new cardio machine lies in its industrial design, enabling full body movement and engaging the upper body 80 percent more than a traditional elliptical, while remaining easier on the joints than running on treadmill. It features a 14-minute interval workout that maximizes the benefits of afterburn and can increase metabolism up to 48 hours after a workout is completed.

Inspired by a motorcycle's lean and aggressive profile, its unique design incorporates a calorie gauge that mimics a speedometer showing calories burned per minute and an audio bell that rings to alert the user to the start of each interval training period.

"We looked at a variety of inspirations when we created the Bowflex MAX Trainer," said Kevin Hendricks, Senior Industrial Designer at Nautilus Inc. "We wanted it to look fast and aggressive and visually it had to drive the consumer to push past their comfort zone. The design needed to help the user achieve maximum results in a short amount of time. What we came up with is a brand new product that captivates you and allows you to focus on your workout without distraction."

The Bowflex MAX Trainer™ also provides users the ability to track their workouts with the free Bowflex MAX Trainer™ app, which wirelessly transfers all workout data via Bluetooth®. It tracks every detail – from time on the machine to calories burned – and automatically syncs workout data with MyFitnessPal®. The app also syncs data automatically with Bowflex Connect™, a free dashboard that helps you view your workout results and understand how they contribute to achieving your overall fitness goal.

The Bowflex MAX Trainer™ is now available for purchase online, starting at $999.

Malicious agents are moving faster than the speed of business. Even more worrisome, most companies are relying on legacy approaches to security that are no longer capable of meeting current threats. In the modern cloud, threat diversity is rapidly expanding, necessitating more sophisticated security protocols than those used in the past or in desktop environments. Yet companies are falling for cloud security myths that were truths at one time but have evolved out of existence.
Overgrown applications have given way to modular applications, driven by the need to break larger problems into smaller problems. Similarly large monolithic development processes have been forced to be broken into smaller agile development cycles. Looking at trends in software development, microservices architectures meet the same demands. Additional benefits of microservices architectures are compartmentalization and a limited impact of service failure versus a complete software malfunction. ...
