Here's some great information about Tire Training from our VP of Sales and workout guru, Michael Ritter. He's even included a FREE TireFlip 180® workout for you to try.
Over the last couple of years, you’ve probably seen truck or tractor tires popping up in a ton of health clubs, gyms, boot camps, races, etc. The reason is pretty simple; tire flipping is a fun and different total-body workout. Great for building muscle and getting your cardio work in at the same time. It’s a win-win!
Tire flipping is also a great way to work the posterior muscles, like your hamstrings, glutes, and back. Also, this is a terrific exercise for your core muscles. This can be especially beneficial for those of us who sit at a desk or log a ton of miles in our cars.
Unfortunately, tire flipping with a truck or tractor tire has some major down-sides as well. They are loud, damage floors, mark-up walls, and are dangerous--especially in a fitness center. Additionally, traditional tire flipping requires a ton of space in the gym. Even if you have a large turfed area, do you really want to waste 50 yards or more on one exerciser and disrupt the other members?
The answer is obviously ‘no’, however, The Abs Company has your solution! Now, you can achieve all the benefits of tire training in a super compact design that will not damage your facility AND is completely safe. The solution is The TireFlip 180®!
The TireFlip 180® features an innovative, hinged design which allows you to experience a tire flipping workout in a way that’s practical and effective. The TireFlip 180® is also far safer than traditional tire flipping setups. It’s no secret that flipping a truck or tractor tire across a gym can be dangerous for anyone else in the facility. The TireFlip 180® fixes that issue since it’s stationary. For more information on the safety of the TireFlip 180®, check out this blog post on gym safety.
I have included below an awesome workout that can be performed on The TireFlip 180®. Give it a try! You will love it!
