Going pink for breast cancer

Functional training specialist TRX has launched a pink at-home version of its suspension trainer to support research into breast cancer. The new pink version will be available in the UK for the first time from TRX’s dealers from October. The package includes suspension trainer, suspension anchor, door anchor, mesh carry bag, door placard, app and a ‘getting started’ guide.

TRX will donate 10 per cent of the proceeds from sales of the pink TRX home kit to breast cancer research. The launch is to be supported with a marketing campaign featuring sportspeople and celebrities.

Space-saving solutions

D2F Fitness recently launched BattleX studio and functional training equipment – a compact, portable battle rope training station, available in a range of sizes, that allows up to 16 people to simultaneously participate in group battle rope training sessions. Complete with a central reinforced platform, instructors can stand in the middle of the unit to deliver classes and motivate participants. The unit can be easily moved to provide operators with maximum flexibility for programming. It can be used in studio spaces and outdoors.

XStore (left) is D2F’s new modular, scalable solution designed to meet the increasing need for sophisticated space planning and storage for functional training accessories. Available with a variety of shelving combinations, gyms can configure bespoke storage units based on available space, layout and accessories to be housed.

Wood works

WaterRower has developed a range of wooden studio kit – NOHrD by WaterRower – which includes swing weights and wall bars.

The swing weights work in a similar way to kettlebells or dumbbells. The handles and the tower – which holds the weights – are both handcrafted from solid hardwoods in ash, cherry or walnut. The weights are iron granulates in a hand-stitched leather pouch suspended from the wooden handles. The tower holds a smartphone or tablet for viewing workout videos for the swing weights.

Meanwhile the wall bars are for functional training, strength and rehabilitation exercises, and come with either 10 or 14 bars. The hinged pull-up bar works in conjunction with suspension training straps, while resistance training bands can be tied to any rung on the bars. Accessories include a multi-adapter and workout bench, which hook on to the wall bars to extend the range of exercises.

An eco-friendly option

The urethane Eco Rep Set is the latest addition to the Escape range of group exercise and studio equipment. Eco Rep Set plates are crafted using a process that reduces their impact on the environment and are made from 93 per cent recycled material. The plates are coated with urethane to ensure they are extra hard-wearing and durable. The set is glossy black with a green and black clamp collar, to ensure members can make any plate changes quickly during studio classes. The Eco Rep Set is also available with Escape’s Rep Set Hollow Bar.

Hot off the LIW press

Physical Company launched 11 products at LIW 2015, including a number of new items for the studio.

The Titan Bag has been developed in partnership with Wild Training founder and personal trainer James Griffiths. A key feature of the multi-functional weighted bag is its multiple-reinforced handle positions. Designed to add load to exercises, its detachable handles allow for wide-swinging, halo-style exercises to boost the effectiveness of rotational movements.

Also new is the Tyre2. A tyre but with four sides, the square design allows the weight to flip in a predictable direction. The design also allows a large area in the middle of the product for users to carry and lift without being restricted by the inner shoulder found in circular tyres.
