OCTOFIT EXERCISE SYSTEM
HOW IT WORKS
The Occtofit Exercise System, is a dual patented, inclusive, functional training exercise platform, engineered with 4 deliberate concepts (reciprocal, inclusive and tactically essential functional features) we have deemed EI [Engineered Intelligence]. Incorpoated as a means to sublimate an individual’s UMP [Unique Movement Patterns] thereby teaching proper body mechanics from the start. The OctoFit houses the greatest range of inclusive functionality, of any of its competitors across multiple categories. The OctoFit addresses every reccomnedation of the American College of Sports Medicines 5 components of fitness, neuro muscular training (functional training) and the 6 components of skill-related fitness with ease and in the smallest footprint.
Users can take flight confidently and lie comfortably with the OctoFit’s non-slip surface. The OctoFit logo placement is not just for looks either but rather strategically placed to help increase the most accurate foot landing and positioning, which significantly increases muscle activation resulting in faster results.
Anywhere Hand Placement Comfort
The average grip size for normal-size women and men ranges from 4-3/8 - 4-1/2. The outer body portion of the Octofit was ergonomically designed to accommodate anywhere grip placement with specific consideration to maximum grip comfort and safety while sweating away those calories, ensuring the best possible kinetic alignment and comfort
There are four movements that your shoulder girdle can perform -- elevation, depression, protraction and depression. Each movement is controlled by different muscles and each movement can be strengthened with some specific exercises.
18 Resistance Band Anchor Points
Our 18 resistance band anchor points serve 2 purposes, the ability to conveniently and efficiently transition to and integrate any component of fitness from or to any level.
360 Sagittal Rotation Adjustable Height Motion Control Platform
The OctoFit’s adjustable platform works in (3) distinct ways which ultimately helps bridge the gap in its accessibility to the widest range of abilities when it comes to moving from all planes of motion (sagittal, frontal, transverse) requirements from elite athletes to addressing gate disorders in the elderly.
● Flush in the riser (base) the OctoFit provides a stable base that accommodates up to 550 lbs of body weight for a safe, convenient, efficient, and effective experience
● When the interchangeable and adjustable reciprocal hard or soft modular balance and stability dome is fully extended and placed inside of the riser it minimizes user (ROM0
Stackable Platform Stabilizer (Riser)
Designed for (4) reasons
• Stabilizes the OctoFit Platform for basic multipurpose use
• Minimizes balance and stability while on the OctoFit platform
• Converts the OctoFit platform into an aerobics and sports performance bench
• The OctoFit platform stabilizer (riser) stacks safely and neatly eliminating the need for a rack.
Interchangeable/Adjustable Reciprocol Hard Dome
Designed for the challenge and immediate feedback when balance and stability is the main focus OctoFit’s modular soft balance dome is also used for rehabilitation when it comes to knees, ankles, etc...
Interchangeable/Adjustable Modular Soft Dome
Designed for the medical professional and rehab patient when the focus is to strengthen OctoFit’s interchangeable and adjustable reciprocal/modular hard and soft balance domes allow its user to minimize the range of instability motion for the elderly or increase it for the most advanced users.
Weighted Platform Capacity
For load-based exercises on and away from the OctoFit unit.
Efficient in every way imaginable:
● NO - Need for keeping up with tiny pins and tools
● NO - Inflation pumps
● NO - Toxic adhesives
● NO - Temperature Sensitivity
● NO - Training limitations
● NO - Form Compromise
OctoFit strengthens and tests the central nervous systems equilibrium which is a series of interrelated systems used to ensure balance when the person is standing. This is very good for motor skill development.
OctoFit exercise programs simulate natural movements that individuals do repetitively throughout the day.
Super-efficient OctoFit workouts are ideal for those with busy schedules whether you want to squeeze in a workout during your lunch break or to get in shape for a fast-approaching event. Research shows you can achieve more progress in a mere 15 minutes of interval training (done three times a week) than the girl jogging on the treadmill for an hour. (Watch and try this OctoFit workout ((video)) of a 10-minute fat-blasting cardio routine) that burns more calories than a half hour on the treadmill!) And according to a 2011 study presented at the American College of Sports Medicine Annual Meeting, just 2 weeks of high-intensity intervals improves your aerobic capacity as much as 6 to 8 weeks of endurance training.
That's not even the best part! Using (the OctoFit Exercise System), you can complete an effective OctoFit session in just 15-20 minutes.
You'll Burn More Fat
Not only do you burn more calories during an Octofit class but the effect of all that intense exertion kicks your body's repair cycle into hyperdrive. That means you burn more fat and calories in the 24 hours after an OctoFit workout than you do after, say, a steady-pace run.
A Healthier Heart
Most people aren't used to pushing into the anaerobic zone (that lovely place where you can't breathe and you feel like your heart is trying to jump out of your chest). But in this case, extreme training produces extreme results. One 2006 study found that after 8 weeks of doing the OctoFit workout, subjects could bicycle twice as long as they could before the study while maintaining the same pace.
Strengthens Central Nervous System
TO BE FIT
So what does it mean to be physically fit and more importantly how does the OctoFit play its role in helping Americans create a better version of themselves? In 2011, the American College of Sports Medicine released new recommendations regarding the quantity and quality of exercise for adults (New Standards). So now when health club and fitness center staff members and independents alike are asked by patrons, "How much exercise do I need?" we can respond definitively.
Like previous guidelines, the new standards offer time and intensity recommendations for cardiorespiratory, resistance, and flexibility exercises. But the updated guidelines also outline recommendations for neuromotor exercise (sometimes called functional fitness training), which focuses on improving and maintaining motor skills like balance, coordination, gait, and agility. According to the ACSM, neuromotor exercise can be especially beneficial for older people to improve balance and muscle strength, reducing the risk of falls and other injuries.
Functional resistance movements involving a significant degree of balance and multiple muscle groups might also help fulfill the recommendations for neuromotor.
According to (ACSM) American College of Sports Medicine overall fitness is divided into 5 health-related components of fitness and 6 skill - related components, those that are established for the general population and those identified in helping increase the advancement of athletic skills: Health-related fitness involves skills that enable one to become and stay physically healthy. (Cardiovascular Fitness, Muscular Endurance, Muscular Strength, Flexibility, and Body Composition) Skill Related Fitness Components or Motor Skill Performance Related Fitness is related to the quality of one’s movement skill.
A Whole New Paradigm of Wellness
In the literal sense, FUNCTIONAL HEALTH (FH) is about your muscles, bones, joints, nerves, and everything else that’s responsible for your physical ability to move. It’s your mechanical well-being. But what Functional Health is really about is optimizing your ability to do the activities that you need to do and that you want to do, without being hampered by pain or injury. Whether that’s keeping up your weekly tennis match, playing with your kids, or simply unloading your groceries, the goal of Functional Health is to improve your capacity to perform your life.
A New Category of Health: Functional Health is a whole new kind of health. The only one that pertains specifically to your physical function, it fills the gap left by more traditional categories of health. Whereas diabetes, heart disease and depression are ailments of general medical health, cardiovascular health, and mental health respectively, things like arthritis, muscle strains, tendonitis, and pinched nerves are examples of Functional Health “illnesses.” Anything that impairs your ability to function normally compromises your Functional Health.
All by Design: The foundation of Functional Health is the body’s physical design, probably the most finely engineered design that exists. Like any high-end machine, the human body works best when it’s able to work like it’s meant to. That means joints moving properly, muscles in the right balance with each other, and so on. And the real key to optimal Functional Health is doing things–both your routine activities and your exercises–in ways that work with your body’s design, not against it. Simply put: when your body can’t work as designed, you pay the price in pain. So improving your FH is just a matter of understanding your body’s basic design and learning how to enhance it.
Functional Health requires that your body be in shape to do whatever you’re asking it to do....Simply put: when your body can’t work as designed, you pay the price in pain. “
Being in Shape to Do Nothing: Most aches and pains don’t come from performing extraordinary feats; they come from doing routine activities. In fact, doing “nothing” is one of the riskiest things we do. Literally doing “nothing” (e.g. becoming one with the couch) as well as figuratively doing nothing (e.g. working at a desk, unloading the dishwasher) are responsible for more neck and back pain than any sport. The basic truth is that being in good Functional Health requires that your body be in shape to do whatever you’re asking it to do. In other words, you actually have to be in shape to do “nothing.” Sound ridiculous?
Consider how long a professional chef can whisk a batter by hand....and then think about how long you’d last before the burning and cramping in your arm would make you cry uncle.
About Your Function: Not everyone needs the balance of a tightrope walker, the endurance of a pro cyclist or the strength of a bodybuilder. You determine what level of Functional Health you need to improve your performance of your life.
