Update on the X9 Hybrid Strength Training System

I haven’t talked much about the upcoming X9 Hybrid Strength Training System in awhile, but that’s because I signed a NDA that prevents me from sharing any of the exciting details that I’ve been shown. Here’s what I can tell you…

First of all, this machine is the most ambitious piece of fitness equipment I’ve ever seen. I’ve got 3D models of the X9 that I can zoom around and play with, and this machine is going to be capable of amazing things. The engineering involved in creating a product as advanced as this one is mind-boggling, and that’s one of the reasons this is taking so long to bring to market. I’ll be the first to admit that announcing this product so early was a mistake, and for that I apologize.

As for the features of this new machine, the manufacturer is (understandably) being tight-lipped on disclosing specifics for now. I am also not allowed to publicly discuss any of the details, but I can tell you that we’re getting very close. There is obviously a strong desire to get this product on the market, but one of the things I like about the manufacturer is they refuse to rush this product out. The amount of work that has gone into every last detail of the machine has really impressed me.

We’re getting close–very close. It’s looking good that one of the first X9s will be headed my way within the next three months. Once I have the X9 in my home I’ll have full permission to show you what this thing can do. I’ll not only be doing a very comprehensive review, but I’m going to do video comparisons between the Titan and the X9, demonstrating the differences in exercise setup and use (among other things).

Thanks for being so patient. I’ll keep you posted with what I can as we close in on the launch!

  1. Are you still workout with the Titan until you get this new machine? If not, what didn’t you like about the Titan? If you are not using the Titan, what do you use now?

  2. John, looking forward to hearing your review of the X9. After using the Titan extensively for the last two years, there are obviously things I like and things I don’t like. I’m sure you’ve discovered some of these things yourself and used this info in your input into the design aspects of the X9.

    Just out of curiosity, are you involved in the X9 as a partial owner, consultant, dealer, etc.?

    If your review of the X9 is anything like your review of the Titan, I can already see myself getting one. It was because of your review that I decided to buy a Titan and was able to grab the last fully decked out Titan that Fitcore had before Titan pulled their product from them.

    • I’m not a partial owner or in any way involved with the X9 from a business standpoint. I did provide my feedback to the X9 team on the things I thought could be improved on the Titan. I also gave feedback on the X9 as the design has progressed and evolved over the past two years.

      My review will be unbiased. If I think the X9 is great machine (and my expectations are very high) I’ll certainly replace the Titan with the X9, but if it’s a dud I’ll send it back. If I decide to keep and promote the X9 I will then be involved with the manufacturer in a business relationship, but this will be fully disclosed just as I’ve always done.

      The Titan is a fantastic machine, but it has its shortcomings and problems. The X9 was designed to not only address those shortcomings, but also to break new ground in many other areas. I wish I could say more, but I can not at this time.
