Flywheel Training

Effective Flywheel Training at Bodyworks Physical Therapy

What is Flywheel Training?

We are proud to offer Flywheel Training at Bodyworks Physical Therapy. Flywheels are disc-based machines that spin to provide resistance. They use inertia, or energy that you produce, to provide resistance. As a result, you can vary your effort level during a set of repetitions without having to change weights or bands. Flywheel training is suitable for all types of resistance training from rehabilitation to heavy strength training. There is no maximum resistance, so the sky is the limit with regards to how much strength you can build. Whether you’re recovering from an injury or engaging in intensive strength training, Flywheel Training is suitable for individuals of all fitness levels.

Flywheel Training vs Traditional Weights

Unlike traditional weights that require manual adjustments and preset loads, flywheels allow you to tailor your effort level within each repetition. This adaptability not only enhances efficiency but also promotes versatile and functional muscle engagement throughout the entire movement. Additionally, Flywheel Training’s controlled resistance minimizes joint strain and is particularly effective for injury rehabilitation. In contrast, traditional weights can place varying stress on joints and might not replicate real-world movements as effectively.

Experience Our Premium Flywheel System

Our Flywheel system was designed and built in Sweden, and we have both a platform and a pulley option for upper-body and lower-body strengthening. It has countless applications; from hip and knee weakness to rotator cuff strengthening to sports-specific rehabilitation like increasing hip, core, and shoulder strength in the golf swing. Flywheel training incorporates both concentric and eccentric strengthening which makes it quite effective for rehabilitation of tendonitis conditions. We typically incorporate Flywheel Training right into our treatment sessions with patients that it is appropriate for.
