OYO Fitness has created a new portable gym called the DoubleFlex Black which uses resistance workouts that are used on the NASA International Space Station to help keep astronauts fit during their stay.
The DoubleFlex Black lightweight portable gym is capable of providing a full workout wherever you may be and is powered by patented SpiraFlex resistance technology. Watch the video below to learn more about this new portable gym which is launched via Kickstarter this week with the aim of raising $30,000 over the next few weeks to make the jump into production.
The development team at DoubleFlex Black explain more about the portable gyms inspiration, technology and design.
Your personal gym for fitness at home, office, or on the go. The DoubleFlex Black is powered by patented SpiraFlex resistance technology developed to keep NASA astronauts in shape on the International Space Station. Combining strength with movement, without weight or momentum, our portable gym is a new approach to functional fitness.
The DoubleFlex Black is the “professional grade” second generation DoubleFlex, featuring more resistance and additional cable extension for full range of motion. Engineered for durability and long life. Together let’s make fitness available in everyone’s life!
What makes the DoubleFlex Black different than other fitness products like free-weights and resistance bands?
Free-weights work great but are not portable, and trying to control momentum can cause joint pain. Resistance bands produce progressive resistance (like rubber bands), which means the muscle is only fully activated at the end of the movement.
SpiraFlex resistance is smooth and linear like free-weights, without the weight or momentum. SpiraFlex FlexPacks rated at 5 and 10 lbs. snap onto the DoubleFlex Black, providing up to 20 lbs. of smooth resistance, yet the entire unit weighs less than 2 lbs.
The DoubleFlex Black is the only device that provides abduction and adduction resistance during a single exercise movement, building a balanced body more efficiently. Also, since the DoubleFlex does not use gravity, a much wider range of functional exercises is possible in all planes of movement. Whether you are an athlete or just beginning to exercise, the DoubleFlex Black can help you achieve and maintain your fitness goals wherever you are. No excuses!
