As you may have seen on the news last week, pumping iron isn't as easy as it looks. Even President Obama needs a little assistance with his form (See video). That's why Les Mills overhauled the design of the traditional weight bar and plates to create the SMARTBART. 
The SMARTBAR is an innovative weight system with an ergonomic design that makes plate transitions fast and seamless, and allows the weights to also be used as dumbbells. Les Mills also re-engineered the studio step. The SMARTSTEPT is more stable and responsive than traditional steps, so even P.O.T.U.S. can achieve better results through increased muscle activation. 
On June 30 Les Mills will begin to sell the SMARTBAR and SMARTSTEP directly to the fitness industry at To mark the occasion, Les Mills will give away a 10-set SMARTBAR rack valued at $3,000 to a gym or club. 
Gym management and instructors can visit the Les Mills US Facebook page between Monday, June 16 and June 29, 2014 to enter. On June 30, a winner will be drawn at random and announced on the Les Mills US Facebook page.
The SMARTBAR rack and set includes:
 · 10 SMARTBARs 
 · 20 2.2lb weight plates
 · 20 5.5lb weight plates
 · 20 11lb weight plates
 · 10-set Storage Rack
