New Hammer Strength Equipment

Hammer Strength Fitness Equipment was created to mirror human movement and gives users the safest, most efficient and satisfying workout possible. For about three years, we researched body movement and muscle ability and made countless consultations with doctors, chiropractors, sports doctors and top athletes. To help in the production process, we programmed an elaborate Computer Aided Design (CAD) Solid Modeling software that uses a three-dimensional model. Geometric calculations on arc, weight, and balance result in biomechanically correct strength training products that are unique to Hammer Strength. After we finalized our extensive research, we launched Hammer Strength into full production in April 1989.

The patented Iso-Lateral movement lets muscles move through unique ranges of motion that are biomechanically natural. Since the body does not move in perpendicular planes, the arcs replicate the body’s movements. Our Iso-Lateral machines are designed to build functional strength by combining unilateral movement with converging or diverging arcs, making the resistance for each limb independent. These machines also give exercisers the option to move one limb at a time, or alternate limbs, increasing exercise variety and ensuring more balanced results. The machines provide multi-joint, compound movements while providing support and safety for the supporting structures, such as the torso and back.

Member Testimony-May 2018

Thank you Member Dana Lewis!

First of all I Love LaKeishea (Squat Queen). I’ve been taking her classes for one month now & can already tell that my body is changing & I’m so excited with the results. Her classes are fun & she’s always changing things around so we don’t get bored. She pushes you to do your best & is so encouraging. You can tell that she Loves her job & all of the people in her classes. She wants us to be healthy & the Best we can be. She is such a motivator & inspiration to me. I’m so glad that she came into my life to help me better myself. Blessings to you my Dear Friend…Keep Shining 

Show Some Love

Find a workout you love—you’ll be more likely to keep at it. When you find something you thoroughly enjoy, you’re more likely to commit to it. You are naturally more motivated and enthusiastic to complete the workout. It’s like how you’re more likely to schedule a hair or nail appointment rather than a dentist appointment.  Schedule a visit with one of our awesome Fitness Specialist, and start a new and exciting workout that you absolutely LOVE!
