PRAIRIE DU SAC, WISCONSIN – November 17, 2021 – Whether looking for an ideal holiday gift idea or getting a head start on New Year Resolutions, Mueller Sports Medicine has a very innovative new fitness product to meet those needs.
Handy GymTM uses unique NASA-engineered flywheel technology to create resistance without the use of heavy, cumbersome weights. You can track your progress via your mobile phone that also includes hundreds of exercises. The lightweight design at 2 pounds makes it portable and versatile for a variety of different needs.
The innovative technology uses customizable resistance training (Inertial Technology) for a personalized, powerful fitness experience. With the inertial discs and pulley, there are 12 different levels of resistance.
Inertial Technology is a new type of strength training method which is independent of gravity and it allows resistance training without lifting even one pound, thus offering stronger and safer fitness results. The technology was originally developed for NASA astronauts. Handy GymTM then incorporated that technology in response to Manuel Montes and his 11-year battle with Parkinson’s Disease as he struggled with energy, effort and motivation.
His main goal was to create a portable gym that allowed him to workout whenever he wanted, wherever he wanted and however he wanted, in a safe, new and comfortable way.
“Handy GymTM is ideal for full body training, body strengthening, muscle toning and injury prevention,” said John Cayer, President of Mueller Sports Medicine. “The flywheel mechanism provides a seldom used training modality that maximizes force output. It’s a versatile option for those who don’t want to waste time going ot the gym, have limited space, travel often or want a quick and easy setup for a workout.”
Mueller Sports Medicine, Inc. was founded more than 60 years ago by former University of Wisconsin basketball player turned registered pharmacist Curt Mueller who coined the term “sports medicine.” The company was based on developing better products to protect athletes from injury and enhance their performance and has expanded into the overall health and wellness segment for all audiences.
