Woodway debuts Fitbench

Billed as the meeting of form and fitness, Fitbench is a new innovative space-saving solution for gyms. Distributed by Woodway, the Fitbench is a multifunctional training bench. It features multiple storage points for dumbbells, kettlebells, resistance bands and medicine/slam balls, and has storage space for ropes, water bottles and users’ personal items.

It also features weight accessories, anchor and attachment points and can be used by individual or multiple exercisers.

The bench is made from cold rolled steel and can be elevated for use in plyometric training. It also has built-in wheels and handles so it’s easy to move.

Eric Weber, sales and marketing director of Woodway USA, says: “The Fitbench, integrated with our Woodway treadmills, is a perfect marriage for high intensity interval training (HIIT), and we’ve seen a significant amount of interest from the hotels, gyms and physical therapy clinics who have a limited amount of space and need a solution for functional training.”

Phantom Athletics showcases Phantom Training Mask

The Phantom Training Mask (PTM) is an ergonomically designed respiratory training mask that claims to train breathing, in order to boost performance and power.

Unlike altitude training, which reduces oxygen levels, the PTM adds resistance to the breathing process, so the lungs have to work harder – taking deeper and more powerful breaths – to take in the same level of oxygen. Phantom claims this not only strengthens the respiratory system, but also enhances physical conditioning and increases training productivity.

The mask has a nylon cover that’s designed to provide optimal airflow, and features the Phantom Regulation System (PRS), a patent pending system to encourage users to exceed their limitations, and an Xhale valve that is designed to ensure comfortable breathing.

The PRS system and Xhale valve are made from an odorless, hypoallergenic, medical silicone. The silicone moulds to the user’s facial features to provide a secure and comfortable fit.

The PTM is suitable for use in all sports and athletic performance activities.

FUNS-C Fitness Container wins two awards

A new functional training system from Transatlantic Fitness won first place in two out of three categories at the FIBO Innovation Awards – the Jury and Private Visitor awards.

The FUNS-C is a versatile workout station in a container and was developed by FunsFitness founder Tobi Conrad in collaboration with the Department of Sports Medicine at the University of the German Army, Munich.

Designed as a mobile multi-user workout solution, the FUNS-C is a universal, multi-sport training station that can accommodate between 10 and 25 people. It features a chin up bar, anchor points for battle ropes and suspension training ropes, a core bar and storage space for other equipment. It’s made from stainless steel and is lockable, making it suitable for indoor and outdoor use.

Conrad says: “It was fun and challenging to combine functionality with design inside the container. I’m very excited about the great feedback.”
