​Get Fit with the Gyro Grip and iGrip

Posted by

One of the biggest challenges facing many people today is finding some free time. In between working, taking care of kids, making dinner, maintaining the house and keeping everything afloat, it seems like there’s no time to relax let alone put aside an hour to go to the gym.

Although most of us know a healthy lifestyle includes working out, it’s generally at the bottom of our to-do list. After all, just travel to and from the gym takes around 15 minutes minimum. Even if you only spend 30 minutes at the gym, that’s still an hour you need to set aside. Luckily, with the Gyro Grip and iGrip, you can get a great workout at home. All you need are these tools and a few minutes every day. Heck you can even pull these out when you’re waiting in line if you don’t mind getting weird looks from other people.

Gyro Grip Resistance Trainer

This portable device is perfect if you’re too busy to do separate exercises for cardio and strength. It harnesses the power of centrifugal force to tone and strengthen your biceps, triceps, forearms, shoulders, back, chest and core. You can work these different groups by holding it either at chest or waist level. Then all you have to do is move your arms in tight circles. You want to go as fast and long as you can to get the most of the workout.

The secret behind the Gyro Grip’s effectiveness is the one pound weight attached in the center. It creates enough resistance that the grip never propels itself. That means you must continually exert force in a circular motion to keep it moving. It might seem easy at first, but if done properly the repetitive motion and fast speed really helps you burn some calories. For best results, you need to make sure your circles are as tight as possible. That means you need to be aware of any extraneous arm movements.

An electronic display shows you the average RPM (rotation per minute) and total revolutions at the end of your 1 to 60 minute workout. As well, you can add in a tonal signal to mark your progress.

At 2.9 pounds and 10 inches in diameter, this might not fit in your bag, but you can definitely carry it around the house. The exercise itself is perfect for men and women who want to increase their endurance and strength.

iGrip Isometric Exercise Trainer

Not everyone has the space for weights in their home. That’s where the iGrip Isometric Exercise Trainer comes in. The iGrip is the first portable isometric trainer. It measures 8 x 2 x 6 inches and weighs only 2.2 pounds. The size makes it perfect for people who don’t have much space. Actually, it’s great even for people who have a lot of space because it allows you to give your entire upper body a great workout.

You might be wondering how something so compact can give you a great workout. The iGrip is an isometric device. In essence it puts your body into a static contraction of muscles. You can either push or pull on the device then hold that contraction for a set amount of time. The electronic display shows you how many more seconds you have left as well as the force you exert on it. As you get stronger, you’ll notice the number increase. It’s a great motivator as you can instantly see how well you did in comparison to your previous set.

You can choose from a variety of exercises to work out different areas of your upper body. It all depends on where you hold the trainer. One of the greatest advantages of the iGrip is the fact that you can literally use it anywhere. Don’t want to miss your favorite TV show? No problem you can do one of the many workouts while watching. It’s also small enough to pack in a suitcase so you can bring it with you while you travel. You can even bring it with you to work and get in a little time during your lunch break.

What makes these exercises even better is the fact that anyone can do them. It’s especially great for seniors or even those with injuries as there’s less possibility for injury. The main thing here is not to strain yourself and don’t do more than a few workouts a week. And, of course, make sure that you have proper form when trying out all of the different exercises. It might not feel like you’re making gains, but within a few weeks you’ll notice your force increasing.

As you can see there’s no excuse anymore for not working out at least a little bit. The iGrip and Gyro Grip and perfect options to stay in shape for individuals who have a busy schedule. And let’s be honest, who doesn’t fit into that category? Using these tools might take a while to get used to. Like everything else all it takes is a little practice. Make sure to read the instruction manual that comes with them to make sure you’re using it properly for best results. It will take a few weeks, but you’ll definitely start to see a change in your strength and endurance. There’s no time like the present to start taking care of your health and the iGrip and Gyro Grip can start you on the write path.
