Standard Cable Attachments May Cause Pain and Injury
handles and cable attachments are the most important part of any cable exercise
machine because they dictate the relationship between movement and
resistance. Yet these critical components have been grossly
neglected by the fitness equipment industry.
Most manufacturers of cable exercise equipment provide low cost handles and cable attachments that restrict the natural rotational movements of the upper body. These restrictions force the body into unnatural movement patterns which places stress on joints and ligaments, promotes inefficient neuromuscular firing patterns and can lead to arthrokinetic dysfunction which can cause pain and repetitive stress injuries. The movement restrictions caused by standard cable attachments also limit the types of exercises that can be performed and the overall functionality of cable machines.
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 of motion throughout any exercise. By allowing unrestricted movement, Trak Fitness cable attachments enable proper muscular development, promote neuromuscular efficiency and reduce arthrokinetic dysfunction and injury by eliminating unnatural stress on joints and ligaments. Trak Fitness cable attachments also substantially improve the functionality and versatility of any cable exercise machine.
A growing list of manufacturers, including TuffStuff (Proformance Plus line), Promaxima and Pulse Fitness, now include Trak Fitness cable attachments on their cable exercise machines. These manufacturers understand the value that Trak Fitness cable attachments provide for their customers.
It's no surprise that people who use Trak Fitness handles and cable attachments refuse to return to the typical low cost handles and cable attachments that pervade the fitness industry today.
