Total Gym is a world recognized leader in the manufacturing of functional, bodyweight training exercise equipment for conditioning and rehabilitation. Founded in 1974, the company’s flagship machine was designed to recreate the movements we perform everyday with and against gravity, thereby engaging all muscle groups and allowing for over 200 functional exercises on calibrated levels of incline resistance.
Today, the San Diego-based company’s Total Gym products – used by hospitals, athletic trainers, fitness and sports medicine professionals throughout the world – are recognized as the most effective tools for functional rehabilitation, strength and sports-specific training, injury prevention and overall conditioning.
Originally developed for home fitness use, the company soon discovered that a significant number of sales were to physical therapists, who had realized the benefits of partial weight bearing or ‘unloaded’ training for their patients. Total Gym’s entry into the rehabilitation community brought the company increased credibility and prestige.
In 2009, a groundbreaking rehabilitation study, conducted by researchers at San Diego State University and the University of Toledo’s Health Science Campus, found that the Total Gym incline trainer could be used to accurately measure functional status of patients recovering from lower extremity injuries.
Since the mid 1980’s, Total Gym has supported a philosophy of functional training using dynamic natural movement. This philosophy ensures that our products will always be effective for users of all shapes, sizes, ages and fitness levels. The company’s flagship product, a multi-purpose incline trainer has undergone several evolutions since its inception.
Today the complete Total Gym family of products is comprised of two advanced multi-purpose units, the PowerTower and GTS and the Total Gym Elevate Circuit, simple and intuitive single-purpose stations comprising of the Total Gym Core Trainer, Total Gym Leg Trainer, Total Gym Press Trainer, Total Gym Pull-up Trainer, Total Gym Jump Trainer and Total Gym Row Trainer.
