New age of ergonomics in cable training

INNOVATIVE thinking about handles fitted on cable units is raising awareness of the importance of, and need for, design and materials delivering optimal workouts. Ergonomically designed to ensure wrists are

neutrally positioned during training, the Grypit gym handles cradle hands to heighten comfort, reduce the risk of compression injury and limits likelihood of grip and muscle fatigue. The robust moulded polymer range, which comprises triceps bar, biceps bar, lat pulldown,

row handle and crossover handles, is set to transform thinking about the safety and functionality of cable equipment fitted with traditional bars. Fashioned for a snug fit for everyone’s hands,

whatever their size and shape, the handles create confidence to complete fulfilling, reproduceable workouts time after time. Grip on traditional steel bars can shift while training, placing stress on fingers and reducing the benefit to targeted muscle groups. With hands

firmly, correctly positioned, Grypit allows users to work out more productively because the bars are ergonomically engineered to ensure they hold the correct position right through the training cycle. Winner of Silver in the Elevate 2018 Best

Start-up Innovation awards, the range comes complete with a five year guarantee against faulty workmanship.

Targeted training for Type 2 diabetes

METABOLIC Fit is a training programme specifically designed and proven to regulate blood glucose levels, enabling operators to provide bespoke, effective, automated training programmes to those with Type 2 diabetes on a mass scale.

Research has proven that the optimal training for Type 2 diabetes patients is a high number of repetitions over long exercise periods, working all major muscle groups. The system designs and automates a programme which incorporates these factors, ensuring optimal efficiency and effectiveness in every training session.

A six month study with the University of Leipzig measured the impact of Metabolic Fit on 23 Type 2 diabetes patients using the programmed at least twice a week. It showed a significant correlation between the training and a reduction in blood glucose (HbA1c) levels. All participants also experienced a reduction in blood pressure and a decrease in hip and waist circumference measurements, both indicators of an improvement in long term health. Nine participants experienced such a reduction in blood glucose that they were no longer classified as diabetic at the end of the period. 31
