Female Grapplers, Can The Gymstick Enhance Your Workout?

When a product is next up as the latest and greatest innovation to add variety, spice and most importantly, results, to your health and fitness workout routine, isn’t that is always a good thing?

Of course it is.

For high school and collegiate female grapplers who are part of the many emerging programs, their coaches and their leadership have developed an effective workout program to help improve their wrestling skills.

That’s great news. That is welcome news.

Having said that, sometimes it’s a good idea to develop your own personal training workout that works for you.

Have you ever heard of the Gymstick? It is growing in popularity with recommendations from individuals and groups from around the world.

Marietta Mehanni is an award winning Australian presenter with over 20 years of teaching experience in both land and water based group exercises.

Ms. Mehanni presents regularly at prestigious fitness conventions both in Australia and many countries around the world, on group fitness trends and programs. She is the international Master Trainer and Education Coordinator for Gymstick International Oy, developing numerous education programs for instructors, as well as refining and delivering the education for all Gymstick master trainers around the world.

At mariettamehanni.com she enlightens us about the benefits of using Gymstick. Let’s listen in. “The Gymstick Original is a fitness tool designed to simply and effectively combine cardiovascular training, muscular endurance, strength and flexibility training. The Gymstick’s winning combination of the stick and resistance bands provides an overall body workout.

The Gymstick offers a range of training programs including rehabilitation and sports performance training. Today, more than ever, people are taking into consideration core stabilization, muscular endurance and strength, balance, coordination and overall wellbeing. There are not many fitness products that are able to fulfil such diverse needs.”

Very intriguing. That’s was a nice overview. Now for a few more specifics. She continues, “Its genius is that it is small, light, cost effective, easy and safe to use and it can be adapted for any fitness level or modality.

The Gymstick is easier to grip than traditional exercise bands because it is not necessary to wrap or hold the bands in your hands as they are attached to the stick. All that is required to increase the resistance is to roll the stick so that the bands wrap around the ends.”

We are very interested and impressed.

Others have joined in the movement from individuals to companies.

As we temporarily leave Australia, we’ll fly to Lahti, Finland.

We are welcomed at visitlahti.fi. “Finland is a fresh alternative for international meetings, congresses and events. Finland is an ideal location for international gatherings thanks to the country’s northern location, with the shortest flight connection times from Asia to Europe, its tidy towns like Lahti, unpolluted environment and easy traffic, its versatile culture and friendly people. Finland is known today as a country of pure nature, higher technology and topnotch education.”

With that introduction we understand why an innovative Gymstick company emanates from there.

They sign in at gymstick.com. “Gymstick International is a fitness equipment company, founded in 2003. It all started with an innovative idea of a unique fitness tool, ”Gymstick”. After the innovation the company has grown fast. Our business is based on providing high quality fitness and sports equipment and on an ambition to help the users of our products to train in a holistic and efficient way. Today we manufacture, represent and sell gym and fitness equipment all over the world. Gymstick is a leading fitness brand in Finland and we distribute to over 45 countries, in six continents, through thousands of resellers.

If you are being influenced to take a closer look at a Gymstick workout program, maybe you’ve found the right company.

Our customer base consists of a wide retail and wholesale network in Finland as well as abroad. Our products are sold by big department stores, sporting goods stores, online stores, pharmacies and rehabilitation and physiotherapy centers.

Very, very impressive.

Their objective is to act as an innovative fitness equipment manufacturer that motivates people to be physically active and inspire them for healthy living.

We love variety. The essence of life is to have many choices and options.

Okay. Alright then. It’s time to travel to the United States.

We are very enamored with what the team at gymstickusa.com has to say. “With Gymsticks being used in over 45 countries around the world we are happy to be your #1 source in the United States.  Whether you are an individual looking to work out at home or a fitness instructor looking to bring a new exciting class to your Gym, the Gymstick is right for you.  We have resistance levels for the young and old, the strong and weak, and the injured who need to rehabilitate or do physical therapy on a specific area of the body.  The Gymstick uses tri-dimensional movements that create resistance in your upper body, core, and lower body in one fluid movement.  It is a low impact, resistant based fitness tool unlike any other.  With more than 150 different exercises you will never get bored and never have to do the same routine.” ?

Did they say over 150 different exercises?

We agree. We would never get bored.

“The secret of happiness is variety, but the secret of variety, like the secret of all spices, is knowing when to use it.”… Daniel Gilbert

So what do you think?

For you young female grapplers, in addition to your structured programs, would the Gymstick add variety and excitement to your workout routine?

Please check with your coach first. Of course.
