The Freestyler will help you shape a healthy and perfectly toned body with exercises that include slow controlled movements. You can burn maximum calories at the same time toning your body. It is simple and safe to use, easy to follow, supported by our video virtual trainer that will lead you through the workouts. The workouts are adapted to different fitness goals and for different workout preferences.
FAQsWhy is Freestyler so efficient?
What you are about to see are all scientifically proven facts. Different independent teams conducted several studies to confirm the efficiency of the Freestyler. Below are the factors the combination of which brings results for every body type incredibly fast.
Use of three dimensional movement executed in spiral and diagonal form recruits not only big muscle groups called "prime movers" but also the supporting muscle groups, which means up to 40 % more muscle mass used in each single movement.
Freestyler completely adapts to your size thus enabling you to perform movements in maximum range of motion, achieving maximum muscle activation and greater strength gains, which all burns maximum amount of calories possible.
All the workouts are designed in a way, which forces the muscles to work in a synchronized and coordinated fashion (kinetic chains). This in effect promotes much higher muscle innervation and up to 20 % more effective muscle contractions.
"You are better off doing 10 reps in 50 seconds than 10 reps in 10 seconds." Time under tension refers to the amount of time it takes you to perform one full range of motion of an exercise in a slow and controlled manner.
More time under tension, more workout time for your muscles, drastically improved effects! Full T.U.T. also involves:
Easy to follow super slow movements
Workout 100% of the time in 100% of the movement
Increased movement awareness & control
NO jerky ballistic moves, NO injuries!
Boosted workout efficiency & lean muscles effect
Why slow movements?
The key to efficiency is time under tension - the amount of time it takes to perform one full range of motion of an exercise in a slow and controlled manner. To narrow it down to a simple explanation: "You are better off doing 10 repetitions in 50 seconds than 10 repetitions in 10 seconds."
The purpose of physical training is to put muscles under stimula in order for muscles to adapt. With the Freestyler which enables 100 % resistance in 100 % of the movement, muscles are under tension for way longer periods than with ballistic "jerky" movements. But slow controlled movements are not just about efficiency, they are also about safety. With ballistic movements there is a high injury risk factor, like hyper-extensions in joints, fast moves also produce way greater risk for tearing muscles or ligaments, since fast moves require way greater muscle inter (between muscles in muscle chain) and intra (how muscle fibers contract within the muscle) coordination. So it's all about what stimula you put on a muscle and how the muscle responds to it.
Can I lose weight with the Freestyler?
Extensive studies have shown that test subjects have lost more than 2 kilograms per week after working out 3 times per week. You can expect amazing results in just a few weeks. Check our video virtual trainer where you can find 60 days program that guarantee the most amazing transformations.

All you have to do is browse among the video centers and try a broad variety of workouts we offer so you can discover your own style.
Why functional training?
"The key to functional exercise is integration. It's about teaching all the muscles to work together rather than isolating them to work independently."
Functional training mainly involves weight-bearing activities targeted at core muscles of the abdomen and lower back. Most fitness facilities have a variety of weight training machines that target and isolate specific muscles. As a result the movements do not necessarily bear any relationship to the movements people make in their regular activities or sports. Functional training attempts to adapt or develop exercises that allow individuals to perform the activities of daily life more easily and without injuries.
Functional training leads to better muscular balance and joint stability, possibly reducing the number of injuries sustained and improving an individual’s performance in a sport. These benefits may arise from the use of training that emphasizes the body’s natural ability to move in three anatomical planes of motion.
Isolation training achieves results in terms of increasing muscle mass and strength because it allows you to fatigue individual muscles, but this often comes at the expense of physical freedom.
Have you seen how some body builders walk around stiff and rigid? This is often the result of a lot of isolated exercises based on training individual muscle groups like a biceps curl. Athletes, on the other hand, may use isolated training, but will then use integrated training to achieve more effective movement patterns.
Functional training has its origins in rehabilitation. Physical therapists developed exercises that mimicked what patients did at home or work in order to return to their lives or jobs after an injury or surgery. Thus, if a patient’s job required repeated heavy lifting, rehabilitation would be targeted towards heavy lifting; if the patient were the parent of young children, it would be targeted towards moderate lifting and endurance; and if the patient were a marathon runner, training would be targeted towards rebuilding endurance.
