Description

This is the isometric resistance trainer that provides a muscle-strengthening upper body workout that is gentle on joints. Users simply pull or push on the static handlebars without moving upper body joints, creating the same strength-enhancing resistance as free weights but without the strain or detrimental impact. Ideal for improving bone density and mitigating muscle loss, the device allows users to create their preferred resistance, it has a programmable timer, and it monitors applied force and displays the readings on the integrated backlit LCD, allowing users to set goals and determine progress. The device enables up to 23 exercises that strengthen and tone the arms, shoulders, chest, and back. Requires one 9-volt battery. 8" L x 6" W x 2" D. (2 1/2 lbs.)

    Comments:

    I have only been using the Grip for a short time and have already noticed increased muscle tone. I have used free weights most of my life, but because of increased joint pain I have had to stop. The Grip allows me to maintain and increase my upper body muscles without the joint pain.

        I have been working out for over 20 years. I've tried almost everything and never got muscular. After 2 to 3 weeks of using the isometric strenthener, I am getting bigger biceps, chest and shoulders and I'm much stronger than I used to be. I highly remommend this product to anyone who wants to get bigger muscles and strong without the backache of lifting free weights. I am totally amazed by the results.

          I weight train and it is an excellent addition to my exercise regimen. The one drawback is that are no leg exercises, but I make that up with the weight training. The device is portable and I exercise at my desk at home and plan on taking it with me when I travel. I would recommend this to a friend.

          Comments:

          I noticed I was losing the power of my forehand tennis stroke - due to being avoided in doubles play.
          After using item three times a day for two days my power shot began to return. I should be up to speed within a week.
          This would help older players like myself to keep their upper body strength.

            Comments:

            I am over 65 years old and I was looking for a device to maintain muscle tone as well as act as help maintain fitness. The isometric trainer does all of this and although the workout is only for the upper torso and arms, the device does a great job. It is light enough to travel on my many trips and is sikid and can withstand the rigors of commercial travel. A greast tool that helps keep muscle ti=one and mass without having to spend hours at the gym.

              I'm in my mid 60s and haven't exercised for awhile.
              I have a set of weights but haven't used them for various reasons. I'v use the I-Grip for a few weeks now and I love the product. I feel better and am already seeing/feeling the results. Muscles starting to tighten. Abs and stomach starting to show improvement. The exercise examples are fairly good but could be better. All in all a very good product at a very good price.

                I use this twice daily. I am in my late 60's and I find it hard on my back or muscles to use weights. I even tried bands, but they can get boring after several reps. I saw this resistance trainer and thought, why not? I am so glad I purchased this little gem! I've been using it for two weeks now, and I can't believe how strong my muscles are. I look forward to using this every day. It is so fun, not like exercising at all.

                  I especially appreciated your quick customer service & follow-through. I
                  I am just getting into my exercise program but at this time I can see the benefits of using this isometric equipment. The chart is very helpful as I continue using it in my program. I appreciate all the features & do not see any negative aspects. This piece of equipment will compliment my exercise program. I certainly recommend your company as well as the isometric strengthener.

                  Comments:

                  Product is mostly used to supplement a normal workout with regular weights, etc. It is also very useful if you are strapped for time. I would not recommend this as a front line workout, but it is great otherwise and used only for the upper body. If you follow the chart, you could do every exercise in about 20 minutes. A very useful instrument.
