The Flex Mini® vs. Yukon Vertical Leg Press

As one might expect, an exercise machine such as the Yukon Vertical Leg Press does one thing. It enables users to strengthen their leg muscles by giving them the opportunity to perform vertical leg presses. The metal frame unit features a padded seat and back rest. As the user sits in the Yukon Vertical Leg Press his or her legs push straight upward on a sliding bar that comes equipped with two free weight pegs. The userís choice of weight amounts will determine the level of resistance involved in each leg press repetition. This is a standard weightlifting and strength training routine. We should also mention that the unit weighs 91 lbs and is 68 inches tall.

The Yukon Vertical Leg Press is available online through a retailer known as FitnessCor. They currently sell the Yukon Vertical Leg Press for $349 plus $49 for shipping and handling. Yet from what we could tell they only appear to offer shipping to consumers who live in the United States and U.S. territories. We saw no mention of a product warranty. FitnessCor provides a 30 day satisfaction guarantee to their customers.
