What does reACT Trainer do?

reACT Eccentric Trainer is a paradigm shift in the Health and Fitness industry. reACT provides zero impact anaerobic exercise and rapid strength gains along with improved balance & core stability in as little as two ten-minute sessions per week.

What is a functional eccentric trainer?

The reACT functional eccentric trainer allows us to train our patients eccentrically but also helps them improve their balance, stability, and movement patterns. reACT uses a platform which rotates in a reverse elliptical pattern which forces the lower body to absorb the kinetic energy of the platform with no impact.

What is flywheel training?

Flywheel training is a strength training modality that offers the possibility of performing exercises with eccentric overload and variable resistance as compared to conventional gravity-based resistance training.

Why is eccentric training important?

Eccentric exercises strengthen not just your muscles, but also your body’s connective tissues, helping to both rehab any aches and pains as well as prevent injuries ranging from tendinitis to ACL strains!

Is flywheel training good?

Flywheel training results in numerous and varied improvements in muscles, tendons and other connective tissue. Improvements in strength, hypertrophy, muscle activation, muscle length, tendon stiffness, power, and athletically relevant performance have all been documented.

Is flywheel a pulley?

The main difference between them is their function. The function of a flywheel is to provide a rotating mechanism more inercia, so it won’t be so affected by other forces (Such as friction or gravity). The function of a pulley is to transmit the rotating motion from one shaft to another through a belt.

Is eccentric better than concentric?

Higher muscular forces can be produced during eccentric contractions compared with concentric. Eccentric contractions produce less fatigue and are more efficient at metabolic level compared with concentric contractions. Unaccustomed eccentric contractions produce transient muscle damage, soreness and force impairments.

Does flywheel build muscle?

What is versa pulley?

VersaPulley is a high/low strength exercise pulley machine that combines speed, power and functional mobility through any range of motion with accommodating inertial resistance at any speed, just like sports. The VersaPulley was designed to enhance sport movement and athletic performance.

How does flywheel differ from simple Puli?
