A new portable, travel-friendly fitness device called Activ5
A travel essential and perfect for anyone who wants to exercise while on holiday or travelling for business, Activ5 is an innovative fitness device that enables anyone with a smartphone to workout anywhere, anytime. Described as a ‘tiny gym in your pocket’ Activ5 is programmed with more than 100 seated and standing isometric workouts to choose from – some are even designed specifically to do on the plane or in a hotel room.
The sleek and portable handheld device (which won’t take up much room in your luggage) guides users through short burst workouts to keep them active throughout the day, all while tracking results on the companion Activ5 App. Activ5 features more than 100 unique workouts that are fast and fun, and measures data such as strength, strength increases, precision and other personal metrics. The exercises are discrete and static, so you can work out at your desk, while watching TV or on a plane, making the powerful health-transforming benefits of isometric fitness available to you anytime, anywhere.
Combining a durable design that measures more than 200lbs of force with a series of over 100 isometric workouts, Activ5 helps users increase strength by as much as 5% per week. Isometric exercise is a type of low-impact strength training where the angle of the joints and muscle length do not change during a contraction – for example, a plank. Scientific research has proven that isometric exercise is one of the fastest and most efficient ways to build strength, accelerate fat burning and tone the body – in fact, five minutes of isometric exercise can be equivalent to 25 minutes of gym-machine exercises.
