Fitness professionals wanting to integrate the TRX Rip Trainer resistance cord in studio settings can now sign up for a new eight-hour education course. The course aims to provide the knowledge and practice to safely use the Rip Trainer resistance cord, modify and progress exercises for members, and teach classes. By learning Group Rip Training fundamentals and two results-driven workouts, fitness professionals will be able to roll out Group Rip Training in their studios. Completion of the course will provide 8 REPs credits.

The Rip Trainer by Holman uses asymmetrical loading of the resistance cord to constantly challenge the exerciser’s balance and force maximum muscle use. Group Rip Training workouts focus on total body strength and metabolic conditioning, and can be adapted to the group.

IGNITING THE STUDIO

Jordan Fitness has launched its new Ignite range of studio dumbbells and barbells for group exercise work, all with an anti-roll design. The new products include the Ignite Neoprene Studio Dumbbells, which range from 0.5kg–10kg. A set of 42 pairs and a rack is designed to let the user comfortably deliver sessions for at least 30 people – potentially more depending how much space is available.

The Ignite Rubber Studio Barbells come with 2 x 1.25kg, 2 x 2.5kg and 2 x 5kg colour-coded plates and spring collars, with 2 x 10kg plates available. They can be purchased as individual sets or in sets of 12 for small/medium studios or 30 sets for large studios.

The Ignite Urethane Studio Barbells are designed to be highly durable, impact-resistant and shock absorbing. The weight increments and colour coding are the same as the Ignite Rubber Studio Barbell range.

Lite touch for studios

Fit Quote has introduced the T-Grip Lite functional exercise barbell with multi-hand grip options. The design is intended to help keep the shoulders in a natural position to reduce the potential strain on tendons and ligaments.

The T-Grip Lite is designed to be durable, lightweight – weighing 7lbs – and easy to carry between studios.

Fit Quote is now supplying the bar in white, complete with weights and grips, in the UK.

No-slip comfort

Airex has launched its new Calyana line of yoga mats, currently comprising two different mat types: Calyana Professional Yoga and Calyana Prime Yoga.

Calyana Professional Yoga is ideally suited as permanent equipment for use in the yoga studio or at home. Available in stone grey, it measures 66 x 185 cm, with a thickness of approximately 0.68 cm – a large training surface with optimal cushioning and improved comfort.

Calyana Prime Yoga is a versatile portable product – it’s slightly thinner and weighs less than 2kg. Calyana Prime Yoga comes either in ocean blue or in a lime green/nut brown dual-colour variant.

Adding resistance

Stroops has agreed a deal with Physical Company for the rights to distribute its patented Slastix resistance band products in the UK.

Slastix are multi-purpose elastic exercise bands that add resistance to natural, athletic movements in the full range of motion. The system is built around the demanding training regimes of professional sports, and is used by top athletes and sports teams. Stroops programming teaches elite coaches and trainers how to use the resistance bands and attachments to identify weaknesses or imbalances in an athlete’s movements.

But it’s not just for elite athletes; the portability of the system means it can be used for bootcamps and gym-based PT and group training, adding bodyweight resistance into circuit class exercises and giving options for partner work.

Adding resistance
Getting a grip

With grip strength the foundation of all lifting exercises, Escape Fitness has created the GripR – a Grip Resistance Trainer that helps members develop grip strength and therefore fully maximise their studio experience.

The Grip Resistance Trainer is ideal for individual exercises but, as it has been manufactured to withstand the toughest of treatment, it’s also perfect for small group training sessions and studio work where it can be used for throwing and catching drills.

The GripR has a bright, bold design and is available in five different weights, allowing beginners to progress.

Box clever

Star Trac has launched BoxMaster education – instructor training to accompany its BoxMaster boxing training station.

With its spring-loaded pads that give slightly on impact, the BoxMaster has been designed to replicate punching a focus mitt and is arranged to cater for any type of punch or combination of punches. BoxMaster education complements this equipment to ensure a significant reduction in the risk of injury.

Having a ball

Distributed in the UK by GymKit UK, the Ugi ball combines the squish of a beanbag with the bounce-back of a stress ball. The balls are used in a 30-minute class-based workout. Developed by kinesiologist and personal trainer Sara Shear, the functional workout engages the entire body in every routine, involving hoisting, balancing on and swinging the ball for a non-stop 30-minute workout.

The balls come in various weights and can be used on the gym floor, with a PT, in bootcamp or in a class.

Ugi (‘U Got It’) is part of the portfolio of equipment-based education company Mad Dogg Athletics – the creator of Spinning, Cross Core and Peak Pilates.
