Vasa Trainer

Over 200 Exercises Using Your Own Body Weight!

What is the Vasa Trainer?
The Vasa Trainer is a versatile exercise machine that provides an elegantly simple, time efficient and motivational approach to functional sports & fitness training. Regular use of the Vasa Trainer dramatically improves sports-specific performance, muscular strength, power, speed, endurance, balance, coordination and core stability.

How does the Vasa Trainer work?
The Vasa Trainer uses your own body weight as resistance, which is one of the safest, smoothest and most natural forms of exercise available. By raising your body up a variable incline against gravity, the Vasa Trainer utilizes your body weight to increase strength and fitness. 

Getting started is simple. Sit, kneel or lie on the padded bench and pull on the handles attached to the pulley cable mounted to the front of the Vasa Trainer. The seat carriage has four durable Delrin rollers with bearings, which provide an extremely smooth rolling action along the monorail. Once you complete the exercise's range of motion, use your muscles to slowly and safely lower your body weight down the inclined monorail. This engages the eccentric or "negative" muscle contractions, scientifically proven to dramatically increase strength. 

Training with the Vasa Trainer allows a wide range of resistance options, progressing from near zero resistance for range of motion exercises to maximally challenging for strength building. There are 6 ways to adjust the resistance and the function of your workouts.

Here are just a few of the advantages of the Vasa Trainer:
  • The Vasa Trainer provides a time-efficient workout. In less than 20 minutes, you can get a great total body workout. 
  • It allows you to exercise using a complete range of motion, which strengthens all the primary and secondary support muscles. This also promotes flexibility in your muscles and joints and helps prevent injury as you gain strength. 
  • The Vasa Trainer simulates the movements made in sports, fitness and everyday-life activities. Often referred to as functional training, it’s the best way to improve athletic performance and to achieve impressive fitness results. 
  • It’s an extremely versatile machine that can be used by people of all ages, fitness levels and sporting interests. 
  • The wide range of resistance settings enables you to exercise as hard or as easily as you wish.

Who Uses the Vasa Trainer? 
Anyone can benefit from using the Vasa Trainer, regardless of age, ability, fitness level or sport interest. The Vasa Trainer will provide just the right combination of resistance options and functional exercises to help you achieve your strength and fitness goals.

The Vasa Trainer offers a simple, fast and fun approach to fitness and sports training. It enhances general fitness and athletic performance because using it increases functional strength, aerobic endurance, power, speed, balance, stability and flexibility. Its versatility is one reason the Vasa Trainer is so widely used by sports conditioning professionals, serious athletes, and families who want to get results.
