T-BOW® trains strength / cardio-resistance / balance-coordination

Training with T-BOW® combines resistance and strength with coordination-balance and achieves the best deep stabilization of the back, ankle, knee and hip joints. The exercises are performed in a stable, unstable and moving situation and therefore challenge every muscle down to the smallest fiber. The T-BOW® workout is physiotherapeutically tested, fun, and keeps you fit and healthy.

Effects of training with T-BOW®

The arch shape of the T-BOW® conforms to the lumbar spine and the trajectory of movement of the trunk muscles is larger and more intense. Also its great stability and high reactivity provide very fine posture adjustments, both in its stable and unstable positions.

The multifunctional training and therapy arch is used as a step-step and swing-seesaw, both stable and mobile.

T-Bands, a set of elastic bands with three intensity levels, special grip change dumbbells or various dumbbells of different weights allow everyone to dose and increase strength quickly and individually. Women, men, beginners and professional athletes can train in parallel.

With the T-BOW® you can train endurance, strength and balance in a unique way. This allows for intensive stabilization training for a strong and healthy body, stable and reactive joints, as well as a pain-free back and neck.

T-BOW® Yoga

The development philosophy of Yoga with T-BOW® is to provide a selection of differential resources of T-BOW® to facilitate, enrich and extend the postures and postural sequences of Yoga from a holistic perspective of postural optimization.

Special attention is paid so that people with very basic levels of balance, strength and mobility are able to evolve in their postural optimization with confidence and satisfaction.

The essence of Yoga is maintained (asanas or postures, pranayamas or breathing exercises, relaxation and awareness-meditation) with an emphasis on self-control, self-assessment and reflection to optimize knowledge and awareness, thus enabling the highest levels of well-being and personal satisfaction.

The elastic and inertial property of the T-BOW® in fine movements causes very rapid and reactive changes in any situation of static-dynamic balance, both in stable and unstable positions of the T-BOW®, overstimulating the body's proprioceptive systems; Very beneficial situation to optimize any posture and fluidity of the postural chains.

Pilates T-BOW®

The T-BOW® stably supports the lumbar spine in natural lordosis, so the abdominals can function perfectly in the correct anatomical posture. The specific exercises performed to strengthen the muscles of the central area of ​​the body, especially the deep and stabilizing postural muscles, are improved to the highest level with the T-BOW®, thanks to its anatomical curvature, its great stability and its high reactivity providing very fine adjustments of posture and integration of conscious control of the whole body.
