Mini Loop (3 in 1)
The mini loop is a great tool to work the hips and also the shoulder girdles. As most of the time, we are seated in front of the computer to catch up with the news of Covid 19 or lying on the bed scrolling through Lazada, the hip and the shoulders do not get much love from the lack of movements. With some exercises, you are able to improve posture and minimise discomfort in the long run.

Simplicity of equipment allows the Tubing with Handles to mimic the cable equipment. With the rubber “cable” and the grip handles, you are able to anchor this product to get a chest pump or a back hit without sweat!

Versatility of Superloop can work on your flexibility which can be a plus point for pilates and yoga poses.

3. YBell
The YBell is more than meets the eye. With a sleek looking triangle tool that consists of multiple handles, this tool is designed to mimic the exercises for the dumbbell, kettlebell, medicine ball and push up stand. Exercises are endless with just utilizing 1 YBell, thus with 2 YBells, you are able to create much more variation of exercises that can achieve muscle building, cardio and even core focused workouts! 

Hence, with the various sizes and weights of the Y Bell, it is a non-headache matter in terms of storing. Y Bells are able to stacked in a stable and safe manner unlike assembling the dumbbell racks or worrying about medicine ball rolling off the stairs.

Working with the sandbag allows the body to experiment in different planes of motions as the sandbag can be utilized and gripped differently with its various handles on the ends of sides, around the body and even carrying a baby, which obviously safer than hoisting a your own baby.

5. Probar Mobility
The uniqueness of this tool is the characteristic of “distraction”. And yes, this tool is “breakable”. As the Probar is pulled apart, more muscles are being engaged in order to facilitate movements. Say bye bye to hunch backs and arch backs as you practice mobility drills or dynamic stretches on your own or even with us! Soon, say hello and welcome new range of motion and muscle flexibility as you transform traditional stretches with the ProBar. Think about it, a hip flexor stretch with a ProBar or even a shoulder opener with the ProBar. It feels insanely great with “distraction”!
