Los Angeles, CA, August 19, 2015 --(PR.com
)-- Bionic Fitness introduces the inflatable AbStar AIR (abstar.com), a home fitness product that improves upon the bulky and dangerous exercise ball. Its unique rounded star-shaped design offers the benefits of exercising on an unstable surface, without the risk of a ball rolling out from under the user. With its non-slip base, multiple hold positions for versatile exercise options, and low-profile (rising only inches from the ground), the patented AbStar AIR makes for safer and more effective exercising.
Illustrating its effectiveness, the AbStar AIR’s smaller surface does not allow the user to rest between ab crunch repetitions as one can do on an exercise ball, necessitating continuous muscle engagement throughout the exercise. Because the top of the AbStar AIR is so much lower than the top of an exercise ball, the user’s torso can be parallel to the ground without the danger of losing balance and falling. Thus, the exerciser can work fully against gravity, which challenges the abs more effectively, in a position that discourages the improper aid of the hip flexors.
Because the resistance provided by the AbStar AIR adjusts to the force exerted, the user can tone and strengthen through a progressive training program with just one device. With its tremendous versatility, it can help one achieve high-intensity, full-body, circuit training workouts that keep the heart rate up, while using only the space of a yoga mat. Only 20 inches in diameter and 10 inches high when inflated, the AbStar AIR is even easy to store.
Simple to use and appropriate for all fitness levels, the AbStar AIR can be utilized to perform seated, standing and reclining exercises such as inner thigh squeezes, chest pumps, back extensions and many others.The AbStar AIR can be effective when used in physical therapy and rehabilitation because it allows the user to stretch smoothly through a range of motion. A printed exercise guide comes with each AbStar AIR purchase, and a growing library of exercise videos and other free resources can be found at abstar.com.
"Although I exercise regularly, I spend far too many hours sitting at my desk and in front of a TV,” says 56-year-old AbStar AIR creator Dean Erickson, a former fitness trainer at one of Los Angeles’ top health clubs, Maine All-State basketball player, and multi-sport varsity athlete at Brown University. “I wanted to use those hours more effectively, and I thought others might, too, so I created the AbStar AIR to allow people of all ages and fitness levels to safely perform scores of seated, standing and reclining exercises for the whole body. All you have to do is pump up the AbStar AIR and it’s ready to use. There are no moving parts, nothing to put together, and no hinges or metal parts to, potentially, hurt you,” he says.
The AbStar AIR is available through abstar.com and Amazon.com. For more information and to view free workout videos, visit abstar.com.
