ARX In Full Effect at SXSW 2022!
ARX recently participated in the first South by Southwest (SXSW) Wellness Expo held in THREE Years! This year’s conference was held in Austin, TX on March 12th and 13th.
The SXSW Wellness Expo gathers thousands of SXSW attendees to explore and interact with this rapidly-growing field. The event featured three distinct programming areas offering the opportunity for attendees to expand their wellness knowledge by participating in discussions and classes relevant to the industry.
Innovation Never Sleeps
When you spend so many years around your own technology, it’s easy to become myopic and allow the incredible to seem standard. ARX’s superiority compared to other strength training tools is an old hat to us, but these conferences always give us a great opportunity to live vicariously through those who are just discovering ARX for the first time.
That first properly-loaded eccentric.
That unique burn and fatigue at the end of your first set.
The incredulous look when we point out that the degree of exercise stimulus they just received—equivalent to over half an hour of sets in the gym—took less than two minutes.
These are the things we love to see, and that will never get old.
A big thank you to everyone who stopped by the booth!
It Takes A Village
We don’t produce our technology in a vacuum. The movement towards restoring the public’s health is an effort that goes far beyond ARX’s technology, so we are always very eager to check out other exhibitors to discover what else people are working on. Here now, in no particular order, are some of our favorites!
Kalyagen’s Stemregen: The World’s Best Stem Cell Enhancer
In the mix at this year’s conference was Christian Drapeau and his team, promoting his Stemregen product. Stemregen can provoke the production and release of the body’s own stem cells within the bone marrow, making the exogenous injection of stem cells cumbersome, expensive, and unnecessary by comparison.
You can go spend a few grand and get ~150 million stem cells injected into you. OR you can get your body to produce the same amount endogenously—from within your own body—in about a month of using Stemregen for a fraction of the price. Smart!
Let’s Get Vertical
Food security is a growing point of focus for millions of people worldwide, and there is no shortage of interest in the process of taking food production out of the giant, centralized agricultural complex and into a more individual, decentralized model.
Enter: Lettuce Grow.
The folks at Lettuce Grow think you should know what’s in your food and where it comes from—so grow it yourself! You can be confident that your meals don’t contain added pesticides or chemicals while shrinking your carbon footprint by reducing the distance your food travels.
They use pre-sprouted plants, and work with seedlings to provide you with a three-week headstart and increase growing success rates. You can choose from 50+ varieties of non-GMO veggies, fruits, edible flowers, and herbs.
What Gets Measured Gets Managed
There are a few different companies in the home blood testing space, but we were impressed with LetsGetChecked at the show this year.
They have all the pertinent tests, the pricing is good, shipping times are efficient, and their service is more and more needed as people continue to take their health into their own hands instead of just trusting their primary care physician to order all the necessary tests.
The King of The Red / Infrared Saunas
Joining us for yet another show were our good friends at SaunaSpace.
SaunaSpace provides red, infrared, and sauna therapy through the use of full-spectrum incandescent heat bulbs. This is a unique offering in the red-light space, as products will typically utilize LEDs that only represent one, two, or sometimes three different nanometer-lengths of light.
But the SaunaSpace is full-spectrum, utilizing hundreds of different nanometer-lengths of light, and at a potent power density to ensure maximum photobiomodulatory effect.
They’ve also sourced sustainable, hypoallergenic, and natural materials in a portable design so we can have a worry-free experience. There’s no off-gassing or permanent alterations.
And most impressive, they’re committed to reducing the electromagnetic fields (EMFs) in our environment, both by grounding the ones created by their products and by creating the world’s only zero-EMF sauna, a model called The Faraday, which includes industry-leading shield technology.
Finally, all their products carry a lifetime warranty, which is a breath of fresh air these days in a world of planned obsolescence.
Plenty of Hope for The Future
If there’s one thing we took from this year’s SXSW Wellness Expo, it’s that the health industry is in good hands.
We’re joined by other companies, practitioners, and colleagues who are finding brilliant ways to help people regain their health and enhance their fitness.
Whether your issue is mental, spiritual, or physical, there is almost assuredly an emerging 21st-century methodology that can help you regain your balance and get maximum enjoyment out of your time here.
A big thank you to our hosts and fellow exhibitors—see you next year!
