Earlier this year I was made aware of new workout device that is supposed to give cables a run for their money. Hmmm. As an avid cable user, I was curious as to how this new device could give one a better workout. Introducing the new Tension Fitness Trainer CEO Dr. Tremaine Young, a professional engineer, and licensed primary care physician is also the creator and founder of the Tension Fit Training system. All of this and he actually works out not just talks about it! Finding time to excersice can be challenging with his busy schedule so the next logical step was to develop a tool for busy professionals on the go . I was able to get the good Dr. to give me the skinny on TFT and how it can benefit your summer workouts. Looking at the TFT it resembles a pulley type system. According to Dr.Tre, he designed it to be used as a total body workout system including cardio that is portable. It can be used indoors or outdoors and if your stuck the website has helpful videos and information available.
BL :1. How does Tension Fit Trainer differ from other portable workouts (Ie cables, portable Pilates etc)?
Dr. Tre: TFT differs from other portable workout devices due to its unmatched versatility in exercises and seamless way to connect TFT anywhere. TFT is a closed looped resistance / tension device that follows the proper strength curve of every muscle in the body. As muscles get stronger from an eccentric to concentric position, TFT gets stronger too. TFT is one complete unit with zero additional attachments necessary. The apparatus you secure TFT to doe not have to support the users weight which makes your options for use limitless.
BL : Can one get a cardio workout and burn (especially,for Women) and what is your recommendation for best results ?
Dr.Tre. :TFT actually incorporates muscle engagement and cardio burn into one. Our women are seeing amazing results with Tension Fit Runs which simulate that of running with a parachute attached to your back. Tension Fit Jumping Jacks, Tension Fit Squat Jumps, and Tension Fit Backward Runs are a few others that have been crowd pleasers.
Dr.Tre: TFT was designed for all fitness levels and abilities in mind. Newcomers and those wanting to rehabilitate need to focus on Range of Motion activities. The key component for strength building is easily achieved through isometric muscle engagements. TFT was specifically designed to engage ones abdominal muscles through every movement which helps beginners and those seeking injury prevention / recovery to regain balance, coordination, and muscle control.
Dr. Tre: TFT officially launched at http://www.tensionfitness.com on February 19th. TFT will be sold directly to the consumer via online outlet.
