The Axle Workout has a new spin on exercise!
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
New York, New York, February 21, 2022 – “I’ve trained every kind of person over the last 20 years including professional athletes to people who have never exercised before. I designed the Axle barbell for everyone. If you’re interested in getting stronger and improving your long-term health, come train with me and our team of elite instructors,” said Andrew Page, CEO and founder of The Axle Workout INC.
With an increased demand for home workout equipment coupled with stock issues across the board, this past year has shone a spotlight on the need for multifunctional exercise accessories.
The Axle Barbell — an ultralight Olympic barbell that’s often used in group fitness classes at boutique gyms — answered that call. This versatile barbell promises a total body workout and (spoiler alert) it delivers.
What is the Axle Barbell, exactly? The name itself is a little misleading. While you can use the Axle Barbell solely as a barbell, it does much more than that.
“It’s really a total body piece of equipment that also functions as a core trainer, planking tool, and anchor for your feet for ab rolling or similar movements — my favorite thing about the Axle Barbell. It’s an Olympic bar, ab wheel, and suspension trainer in one,” remarked Andrew.
The barbell is specifically designed to roll, so your core stays activated through most of your movements, giving you a killer workout. The barbell arrives completely deconstructed.
The kit includes a 55-inch aluminum barbell (in two pieces), two 5-pound plates, two clamps, two wheels, two foot anchors, a resistance band, and an air pump.
“To get started, I assembled the bar, pushed the wheels on, added the plates, and clamped everything into place. The process took only a couple of minutes and I was ready to go. The performance is impressive Fully loaded, the barbell clocks in at a light 11.2 pounds. While you can add any size Olympic plates, that weight was enough to get me started. When I wanted more weight for bicep curls or bent-over rows, I strapped on the included resistance band, a convenient touch,” said one satisfied customer.
“Hovering around 4.5 feet, the Axle Barbell is shorter than most — standard barbells are seven feet — but it was easy to grip and maneuver and I didn’t miss the extra length at all. While it didn’t blow other barbells away as far as basic functions go, one thing that really made the Axle stand out is that it rests on its rubber wheels, rather than on the iron plates. This made the landing a lot softer and significantly quieter, and it made the whole setup seem less intimidating, especially since the wheels have neon green spokes. Where the Axle Barbell really shone was in its virtual training studio,” said another user of the Axle Barbell.
Axle offers live and on-demand classes through its mobile app. You log in, sign up for a class, and then a link is sent to you ten minutes prior to start time. I couldn’t believe it but a live coach pops up on the app and coaches you through an efficient, 30-minute workout using the Axle. One avid gym-goer had this to say, “After my first class, my entire body was burning after the lifts, the core movements, and the HIIT bursts. It was awesome. I kept on with the live classes when I could make them and the on-demand at off times. It took some getting used to for my body. My current utter lack of core strength thanks to too many hours of sitting in front of the computer probably contributed, but when I strapped my feet in the first few times, I thought I was going to fall flat on my face. Things were a little shaky and unstable, but after repeating the moves several times and getting a little more comfortable with the system, things went smoothly. One of the Axle Barbell’s main selling points is that it’s collapsible.”
“When I hear “collapsible” or “foldable,” especially associated with exercise equipment, I’m always a little skeptical, but the Axle lived up to its promises. As easy as it comes together, the whole thing also comes apart — the clamps, plates, and wheels come off and the bar collapses into two pieces with the touch of a button, and I got it done in under a minute, so it doesn’t feel like an unwelcome project after a workout,” said a local workout critic.
Whether you’re into heavy weight lifting or looking for a versatile tool to take your full-body workouts to the next level, the Axle Barbell is a solid choice. You can use it as a standard barbell, but it also specifically targets your core, thanks to its rolling mechanism.
This translates to better posture and all of the benefits that come with it, like less back pain and less tension in your shoulders and neck — something that I personally noticed within a few weeks of using the barbell. The $299.99 retail price is right in line with other high-quality barbells. But for access to a live coach who can help you get stronger, it’s a steal.
