I have never done any striking-related fitness. Will I learn proper technique?
Yes. Even if you’ve never strapped on a pair of gloves, Nexersys is for you. The program includes rounds dedicated to teaching you proper technique while throwing all of the strikes you will need. During each of the strike video training workouts, your trainer will demonstrate and reinforce proper technique. Your power, endurance, speed and mental agility will improve as you move through the program.
'Striking-related fitness' sounds intimidating. Is it hard to learn?
Not at all. Our trainer will take you through technique rounds where you focus exclusively on learning how to strike. During the workout rounds, you will repeat each strike several times. This allows you to first get familiar with the feel of the strike and over time, improve your technique, speed and power.
What types of activities can I choose from?
Nexersys offers five activities – striking, core and cardio training videos, as well as Avatar “Follow Me” and Avatar “Strike Training.” As you work within each round, Nexersys tracks your activity and gives you personalized feedback on your performance.
How long is each round?
Each round is a total of 4 minutes and has a 30 second introduction to the work, a 3 minute workout and a 30 second round wrap-up so you can review your feedback.
How many difficulty levels are there?
There are 3 levels: beginner, intermediate and advanced.
How many rounds can I do in a workout?
The maximum number of rounds allowed in a workout is 15.
How many different types of workouts can I do with Nexersys?
There are thousands of potential workout scenarios with Nexersys.
What program should I use for my workouts?
We recommend everyone start at the beginner level. You can always move to intermediate and advanced levels as needed. A minimum of five rounds will give you the most well-rounded workout experience but you should select your number of rounds based on your comfort level or the amount of time you have available for that workout.
How often should I use my Nexersys?
Experts recommend that active adults get at least 150 minutes of moderate-intensity aerobic physical activity or 75 minutes of vigorous-intensity aerobic physical activity a week. Nexersys workout programs are a vigorous-intensity activity so the recommendation is 5 rounds, 5 days a week. The minimum recommendation is 3 days per week.
How do I progress through the levels?
All new users should start with Nexersys Training, at the Beginner level, to build a solid foundation of technique and physical fitness. This will prep you to move through the levels, which get progressively more intense and difficult. You must score a rating of Excellent in 4 out of the 5 activity areas before you are ready to move on to train in your opposite stance or go to the next level.
Can I jump straight to more advanced levels?
You are not locked out of any levels. However, you will find the advanced levels extremely challenging without building your foundation from Beginner. For the best experience, start with Nexersys Training/Beginner Level.
I'm left-handed - can I train in Southpaw stance?
Yes, Nexersys can train you in both Southpaw and Traditional stance. Nexersys recommends you start in the stance where you are comfortable but that you train in both stances for balanced fitness. Nexersys defaults to train you in both stances.
What kind of tracking will I be able to see?
Nexersys will give you feedback on your calories burned, accuracy, number of strikes landed/number of strikes called (pace), power and points. Points are gained in Avatar Strike Training and based on double, triple and quadruple combos thrown and blocks against the punches thrown by the Avatar.
How do I customize my own programs?
You can customize your own programs by going to My Training/Customize Programs and walking through the set-up screens. Nexersys recommends you include each of the activities in your customized programs. The activities are strike, core and cardio video training, Avatar Follow Me and Avatar Strike Training.
Is it possible to hit the Nexersys too hard?
Yes. Your Nexersys is not a carnival game. If you hit the unit too hard, you run the risk of hurting yourself or damaging the machine. You want to keep the power measurement at 100%. Power is specifically calibrated for each level and type of activity. Core and Cardio call for touches while striking is much harder and the power required from Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced increases from level to level. You will be challenged to work harder to keep the power at 100% as you progress.
Is the warranty still valid if I purchase my Nexersys second-hand?
No, Nexersys warranties are non-transferrable. Please reference our product page for more detailed information on product-specific warranty information.
