As I mentioned, the Club Industry Show was at the McCormick Place this past week. It is a mix of educational seminars and lectures on all topics relevant to running or owning a fitness business, and then there are practical application classes and demos that are part of the expo. The expo is free to everyone as long as you register online.
I enjoy the expo because you get to see new products and the re-marketing of old products that have great value to the fitness community. The truth is that the wheel for abs and resistance tubing has been around for a long time. But equipment companies like monkeybargym.com have re-packaged these types of products, made them better and created programming elements so that consumers can use them more safely.
I have been using these two pieces of equipment at my facility for years. I even had different versions of them when I worked at the East Bank Club throughout the 90’s. I have relied on these types of equipment because they are so portable and combine well with the type of interval training that I follow.
So these are two of my favorite picks from the Club Industry Show. They are super affordable. You will get in amazing shape by using them 3-4 times a week.
