No other natural or man made mechanism compares to the functional versatility of the upper limbs of the human body. Our hands, wrists, arms and shoulders all incorporate rotational movement to provide an infinite range of motion. Yet most manufacturers of cable exercise equipment completely disregard this fact by providing low cost handles that restrict natural functional movement and place unnatural stress on joints and ligaments. Use of such handles may cause improper muscular development and repetitive stress injury. The patented design of the entire line of Trak Fitness cable attachments alleviates these problems by allowing unrestricted range of motion during any exercise.
Fitness handles and cable attachments are the interface between human and machine. They are the most important part of any cable exercise machine because they dictate the relationship between movement and resistance. Yet this critical component has been grossly neglected by the fitness equipment industry. Trak Fitness has done something about it. It's no surprise that people who use Trak Fitness handles and cable attachments refuse to return to the typical low cost handles that plague the fitness industry today
All cable exercise equipment (and resistance bands) provide the same basic function. They provide linear resistance from a fixed point. There is no functional difference from one cable machine to another. The only way to differentiate the functionality of cable exercise machines is with the cable attachments. Typical low cost,factory provided cable attachments restrict the the users hand, arm and shoulder positions to a fixed orientation to the line of resistance, which limits the types of exercises that can be performed and the overall functionality of the cable machine.
The patented design of Trak Fitness cable attachments includes multiple axis of rotation which allow unrestricted movement during any exercise. Users can rotate their hands, arms and shoulders through multiple planes and alter the orientation to the line of resistance throughout the exercise movement. These features allow the user to perform an unlimited range of exercises and substantially improve the functionality and versatility of of any cable exercise machine. By allowing unrestricted movement, Trak Fitness cable attachments enable proper muscular development and reduce potential injury by eliminating unnatural stress on joints and ligaments.
