Our Handstand Trainer has been designed to have “flex” within the steel unit itself. Then the unit is “strung” with special bungie (you cannot buy this in any hardware store). The combined effect is almost a miracle. The system works in harmony to produce a soft bounce which will not “bottom out”. This bounce is at the correct speeds for the little ones through the cheerleaders and even the men’s program. No bottoming out problems which destroy timing and rhythm.
It will fit in even the smallest gyms. it can be stored easily against the wall taking up only inches of valuable floor space in seconds by revolving the legs to lie flat against the frame!
Bouncing has been around for years, what Gym-Trix has done is to refine the methodology and the apparatus to work in optimal harmony. Everyone benefits with this piece of equipment.
The Handstand Trainer will develop and strengthen, in your gymnasts, that tight “hollow body” shape so critical in our sport’s basic technique! It will also develop the ability of your gymnasts to “planche” and to “push” back from that planche. A very critical basic strength movement. Imagine a tight hollow body shape which can planche & push with speed and power!!
Bar work, vaulting, tumbling, and some beam skills too; they will all improve.
This equipment is solid steel for extra long life. The bungie cords last from 3-5 years with normal 2-5 hours of use per day. They will last much longer with less use.
Gym-Trix, Inc. has developed a step-by-step program guide to use with the Handstand Trainer. This guide will help in developing a cast to handstand without ever having to”spot” children millions of times! This, of course, saves you the physical effort of spotting as it allows for the gymnast to learn on their own in a safe incremental fashion! You are now free to spend valuable coaching time focused on other things!
