Isometric resistance training is a superior strength building technique that is also much easier on the joints than other more stressful forms of exercise such as weight training. The Grip Isometric Resistance Upper Body Strengthener is a new isometric resistance trainer from Hammacher Schlemmer that combines advanced technology with this proven form of strength building exercise.
The Isometric Resistance Upper Body Strengthener is an effective way to achieve a muscle-strengthening upper body workout without all the stress and wear and tear on your joints, ligaments and tendons. To use the device you push and pull on the isometric resistance trainer’s handle grips without moving your upper body joints. This creates the same strength-building resistance training as free weights without the stressful and potentially damaging impact on your joints.
This low impact device is also perfect for improving bone density and recovering from muscle loss. The isometric trainer can be used to perform up to 23 different exercises that help strengthen and tone your arms, shoulders, chest, and back. The Grip Isometric Resistance Upper Body Strengthener has a programmable timer and will automatically monitor the applied force. It displays the readouts from your workout on the integrated backlit LCD allowing you to set important workout goals and measure your progress.
The isometric resistance trainer runs on one 9-volt battery. Weighing only 2 1/2 pounds, the isometric resistance upper body strengthener is a powerful and effective electronic fitness device with a convenient, compact and portable design.
The Hideaway Elliptical Trainer is a compact elliptical trainer that provides the same lower leg motion as the full sized counterparts that you find in the fitness and workout clubs. But for many of us with limited space to keep a full sized workout machine permanently setup in our home, the small compact size of the Hideway Elliptical Trainer enables you to hide the machine in a closet or stow under a bed when not in use.
You can definitely get a great aerobic workout on a treadmill, stair climber or elliptical trainer, but these machines are very expensive and bulky in size to have in the home. The Hideaway Elliptical Trainer provides you the same great workout at a very affordable low cost compared to the full sized machines. And the ability to store and hide the elliptical trainer away when not in use solves the space problem many of us have in the home.
Unlike the full sized elliptical trainers, the Hideaway Elliptical Trainer doesn’t have hand rails enabling it to squeeze into tight spaces when not in use. The open foot pad design also forces you to keep your balance as you stride which simultaneously works your abdominal muscles. And that’s actually an extra workout benefit that even the full sized machines don’t provide.
The well constructed and sturdy steel frame supports up to 250 pounds. The elliptical trainer also has a tension dial that lets you adjust the intensity of your workout. You can keep track of your workout progress with the LCD screen as it scrolls through the number of strides per minute, total number of strides, exercise time and calories burned.

After a tired day at work, many would feel reluctant to even go through the traffic to head to their gym. Now, you do not have to worry about traffic if the “gym” is right in your own home, right? If your answer to that question is yes, then the foldaway 39 exercise gym is the right thing for you.
This Foldaway 39 Exercise Gym allows you to have a full body workout (that’s around 39 types of exercise). The best part is that it folds into 1’ high for easy storage – you don’t even have to brainstorm as to where to keep this handy equipment. With that size, you can just about store it anywhere, be it in the closet or even under the bed. It could be folded into half without the need for you to remove any of the components, though initial assembling is required.

It is done by just simply making some adjustment to the carabiner clips. The foldaway 39 exercise gym also comes with five illustrated cards which will teach you (in detail) how to use it for 39 types of exercise – from curls to leg extensions.

Finding a way to keep fit in this fast pace world is the question that everyone has been wondering about. We’ve read in magazines, watched on television and even heard on the radio that it’s enough to just allocate 20 minutes a day, two or three times a week to exercise.
However, just how any people actually do follow that regime and also continuously? Technology has proven to improve our way of living by allowing us follow our daily schedule and also exercise at the same time without having to go through the trouble of gyms or fitness centres. Dumb-bell Cutlery allows you to eat as you have always eaten but workout at the same time. It’s all together a three piece collection where it consists of a knife and fork weighing 1kg each, and a hefty 2kg desert spoon. Quite a neat fitness gadget dont you think?
The logic of the weight is simple. Since desserts such as ice cream, cakes, and puddings contain the most calories, the weight of the dessert spoon is of course the heaviest. It’s also because dessert is eaten by using a single spoon only whereas the main course is eaten by using two utensils; a fork and also a knife which brings to 2kg in total. By eating regularly you won’t only gain weight but also lose weight.
By using these, the message that ‘you gain what you eat’ gets across. Now, not only do you do it two or three times a week. It can even happen three times daily! The most body benefiting utensils you could ever have.

The Inversion Machine and Captain’s Chair is a nifty piece of exercise equipment that effectively exercises the abs, namely the rectus abdominis as well as the internal and external oblique muscles. Although the main function of the captain’s chair is to work the abdominal muscles, the captain’s chair also exercises the hip flexors, depending on the position of the person.
The Inversion Machine and Captain’s Chair can be considered more of a therapeutic piece of equipment rather than an exercise equipment as it is used mostly to strengthen the back or spine. Inversion machines are also widely used as a form of physiotherapy for patients with back or spinal injuries, who are seeking to strengthen their spine or back.
The inversion machine and captain’s chair is a piece of exercise equipment that strives to provide both these functions. While using the inversion mode, the cushioned bench stretches the back to strengthen the back muscles. When used as a captain’s chair, it serves to strengthen the abdominal muscles.
Sometimes, in the process of strengthening one’s abdominal muscles, there is a tendency to strain one’s neck or back. The inversion machine and captain’s chair eliminates this risk as it enables one to stay in the proper form as when users grip the foam-padded handles, their feet are held stable by the foot pad. The inversion bench stretches the back gently utilizing only gravity, effectively relieving any strain on the spine or vertebrae. Regular usage will promote strong abdominal and spinal muscles.
The auto-stop avoids any over-inversion while handholds ensure a smooth return to an upright position. The machine is made all the more stable with anti-slip rubber leg caps. How much for gain with no pain? USD $199.95.
