The Bodycraft Commercial Jones Machine goes down in history as one of the most innovative product designs to every hit the fitness industry. The unique "free-motion" design offers a more natural motion than traditional smith machines, without sacrificing the safety and security of a traditional smith machine.
Smith machines move in a linear pattern only. However, with most free weight movements like squats and bench presses, the body actually follows a slight arcing pattern, so there is some forward and backward motion needed to follow each person's individual, true natural range of motion. This unit does just that.
This plate loaded machine provides the up and down linear pattern of a traditional smith machine, but also incorporates a linear bearing system that moves front to back. The two motions combined gives you a natural "3D" motion, all with the same quick-racking safety of any smith machine.
In addition, you get your choice of bar:
The "Active Balance Bar" is a bar that allows slight tilting from side to side, forcing the user to maintain balance. This creates even more of a true free weight feel, while maintaining smith machine-like safety.
