Being fit and healthy isn’t just about how you look. For many people, it is an essential part of their job. Firefighters, paramedics, military personnel, and police officers — just to name a few — rely on their physical fitness to keep them rescue ready.
That’s why the way these professionals train is so important. If you’re a first responder or a member of the military, you need to protect your joints as you build muscles. You also need to boost your cardio and build endurance, not to mention squeeze in time to exercise into your demanding schedule.
MaxiClimber exercise equipment is designed to give busy professionals an efficient solution for training at home.
What Is the MaxiClimber XL?
The MaxiClimber XL at-home vertical climber is a revolutionary piece of home exercise equipment. It’s a vertical climber that combines weight resistance, muscle toning, and aerobic exercise. That means you can get a full-body workout without leaving your home. The MaxiClimber XL’s compact design makes it perfect for small spaces like apartments, basements, patios, and garages.
Vertical climbers get you into shape using the principles of High-Intensity Interval Training (HIIT). Combining cardio and resistance training allows you to simultaneously lose weight and tone muscles while strengthening your heart. That’s why we call it a MaxiClimber full-body workout.
This vertical climber’s unique design has been proven to effectively burn more calories and better support muscle toning with its unique design than other cardio machines like treadmills. Plus, it offers a low-impact alternative to exercises like running and jumping.
This MaxiClimber at-home vertical climber model is perfect for anyone up to 6’6” and 300 lbs. It also offers 12 levels of hydraulic resistance. How much is the MaxiClimber XL at-home vertical climber? Unlike the VersaClimber, you can get it delivered to your home, and is much more affordable than the competition. Which is why we’re keen on keeping our equipment affordable for all of our first responder heroes.
How Can a MaxiClimber Keep Me Rescue Ready?
The low-impact design will protect your joints as you workout, reducing strain and soreness as well as the chance for injury. In your field, an injury prevents you from doing your job and puts you squarely on the sidelines.
MaxiClimber at-home vertical climbers also imitate the movements that many first responders, emergency personnel, and members of the military use in their careers. The ability to climb quickly and keep a steady pace can mean the difference between life or death. For firefighters especially, climbing stairs is a big part of the job.
These types of professions also require cardio strength and endurance. In an emergency situation, it takes more than adrenaline to fuel your body. MaxiClimber’s design and emphasis on HIIT training can help you build the endurance you’ll need.
Here are a few workout ideas using your MaxiClimber to get you started on your way to fitness readiness:
- Start with HIIT. A basic HIIT workout is the perfect place to start. Alternate short bursts of fast-climbing cardio with longer stretches of higher resistance but slower-paced climbing. A one minute to two-minute ratio is a pretty standard beginning, but you can adjust to meet your needs. Lengthen your slower-paced times to start and then shorten them as you grow stronger.
- Build endurance. On days where you aren’t using HIIT workouts, you can opt for an endurance climb. Set you MaxiClimber to moderate resistance, and settle in for a longer workout. Try your best to maintain your pace, and increase your resistance if you feel like it is too easy. This will not only help your muscles learn endurance but also help you mentally prepare for long climbs as well.
- Simulate real experiences. Design your own workout that simulates real situations you have experienced while on the job or that you could experience in the future. Is there a particularly tall building in the area you cover? Try calculating how many stairs you would have to climb to reach the top, and start practicing.
