The key benefit of the NOVA Gym is you can now fit strength training in anywhere you are, including home, office or travel, with one device that provides resistance in all planes of movement, replacing a room full of equipment.

OYO Fitness launched their campaign for the OYO NOVA Gym on Kickstarter today. Their first product, The OYO Personal Gym, was the 2nd highest funded Kickstarter fitness product when it launched in 2017. The NOVA Gym answers customer requests for a higher resistance, heavy duty version of the OYO Personal Gym which has sold more than 65,000 units.

The NOVA Gym uses SpiraFlex resistance technology developed to keep NASA astronauts fit on the International Space Station. A NASA 16 week study proved SpiraFlex produced the same muscle building results as lifting free-weights. The NOVA Gym uses SpiraFlex powered “FlexPacks” that snap on 10 lb increaments, for up to 40 lbs of resistance. A full body gym that can be used to perform more than 100 exercise movements, yet only weighs 2.5 lbs and folds up to go anywhere.

“The key benefit of the NOVA Gym,” said Paul Francis, inventor and founder of OYO Fitness, “is you can now fit strength training in anywhere you are, including home, office or travel, with one device that provides resistance in all planes of movement, replacing a room full of equipment.

Strength training with the NOVA Gym produces lean muscle, which becomes a calorie burning engine during exercise, and even at rest. The NOVA Gym also features DoubleFlex activation, which applies SpiraFlex resistance to opposing muscles in each movement, building a balanced body in less time.

“The NOVA Gym is the solution for people who don’t have time for the health club, find using weights inconvenient and cumbersome, or don’t have space for large home gyms,” said Nick Bolton, OYO Fitness Director.

The NOVA Gym is available to pre-order starting at $135 and will be available to ship to most countries in October. For pre-order discount, visit pr.go2.fund/novagym.

About OYO Fitness
