Sling trainers – the mobile fitness revolution
Sling trainers are probably the smallest, complete gym in the world. They provide a versatile and effective workout from full-body exercises to isolation exercises. All you need for your fitness training is a suspension possibility and your own body weight. With a Sling Trainer you always have a whole gym with you.
The sling trainer principle
A sling trainer is a tool for body weight training that helps you to optimally dose your body weight – i.e. your training weight – in each exercise. To illustrate this, imagine that you want to perform a rowing exercise. This would involve pulling your body up at a holding point until your chest is at the level of the holding point. The more horizontally you are positioned, the more of your body weight you have to lift with each repetition. With a sling trainer you can choose the angle of the sling trainer so that you always get the right training weight. This principle can be applied to every looping exercise.
Effective whole body training with the sling trainer
In sling training, muscles are not trained isolated from each other, but always in combination. This is not only closer to everyday life, but also more effective. You don’t just train more muscles at the same time, but improve inter- and intramuscular coordination. Since the grips of a deflection pulley sling trainer only provide an unstable support, especially the deep-seated muscles (core training) must work constantly in order to enable a smooth execution of the exercise. This improves the interaction of the muscle groups during sling training, the body can work more effectively and you improve your body awareness significantly. Positive side effect: the calorie consumption is significantly higher than in a conventional workout, as more muscle mass is active.
