The key to toning and strengthening muscles with HeartFlex is multiple repetitions, not strenuous activity. HeartFlex builds strong, dense, flexible muscles like swimming.
Austin, TX (PRWEB) May 2, 2007
More than 70,000,000 Americans claim walking exercise as their primary form of exercise. Fitness walking works the lower body and circulatory systems but walking by itself doesn't do much to exercise the upper body; until now - Introducing HeartFlex.
This new product weighs only 9 ounces (a little over half a pound) and utilizes a series of ball and socket joints to create a constant and steady resistance. Unlike weights, HeartFlex targets extending and contracting muscles simultaneously so both opposing muscles are exercised together, at the same time. HeartFlex is totally benign and cannot snap back and cause injury. HeartFlex's resistance assembly is composed of 19 discreet parts which create a series of 18 mini resistance brakes. See How It Works.
HeartFlex is easy to move for beginning exercisers and with the addition of repetitions it provides a rigorous workout intense enough for even the most conditioned athlete. In a 30 minute walk, taking two paces per second, and moving the hands at the same rhythm as the feet; a walker will have performed an astonishing 3,600 upper body movements. And, when not in use, HeartFlex conveniently wraps around the back of the neck, freeing hands.

HeartFlex transforms walking exercise into a total body workout allowing upper body hand, arm, chest, and back exercises to be performed during all fitness walking and power walking routines. Its lightweight, straightforward design and ease of use make it perfect for home fitness and for use with treadmills and other cardiovascular fitness machines such as stair steppers and stationary exercise bicycles.
Mike Maggio, a 'Pose Tech' certified running and walking coach, has authored a 5 1/2 minute video, in which he demonstrates proper walking form. He then demonstrates how to use HeartFlex in combination with walking exercise to receive a total body workout. See Dr. Mike's walking video.
