What is an X strap?
X-Strap – Is a Velcro strap designed to hold the bands together to avoid having to cross the bands twice to manipulate the Gymstick to do abduction exercises. Crossing the bands in this way will break the bands, and thus the X-Strap is effective in avoiding this. Very clever little thing it is!

Mesmerising Myofacial Meridians
Last year at the Get Active NZ conference I attend a session delivered by Ian O’Dwyer. I was super impressed by his presentation and his humility. Ian presented a session of myofascial meridians and I was completely mesmerised by the information and his presenting style. I approached Ian afterwards and asked if I could learn more from him and he humbly said yes. Two weeks ago I travelled up north to Noosa Heads where he runs a successful PT business and spent an amazing day with Ian.

“As a National Manager I am always looking for unique programs that will give both members and prospects a point of difference from our competitors. The launch of Gymstick Muscle, along with incorporating gymsticks into other classes, has been a huge selling point for our timetables. Classes continue to reach capacity (40-60), and members are now requesting additional classes so they can substitute more Gymstick Muscle in place of traditional barbell programs. I would highly recommend Gymstick Muscle to any club owner and Group X Manager who wants to continually innovate their timetables, and ensure they offer programs that get results…Fast!”
