ATTENTION: BODY BUILDERS, WEIGHT LIFTERS AND FITNESS BUFFS WHO TRAVEL FREQUENTLY:
you spend a lot of time in hotels and motels, you are no doubt aware
that many of them have no health spa facilities. Those that do may keep
certain hours. What if you are a night person? Maybe you simply enjoy
working out in the privacy and comfort of your own room. If so, then you
may have to settle for doing pushups and deep knee bends in your room.
Makes for a very boring and inefficient workout!
Gym claims to have the smallest and the only total major muscle group,
portable universal travel gym ever made; on the market since June of
2000. Suitcase Gym welcomes any disputes to this claim. Any takers? (See
portable home Gyms are designed to be stored in a closet or under a bed,
the Suitcase Gym is a true universal travel gym, which fits in a
suitcase. Ideal for motels, mobile homes, offices, vans, camping, boats,
Most portable home gyms are designed to
work certain body parts such as the upper body but do not provide a
complete body workout. A total body system should be able to
simulate all of the major exercises, which build the major muscle
groups. This should include bench presses, military presses, pull-ups,
rowing, arm curls, arm extensions, leg presses, leg extensions, leg
curls, hamstring flex and abs. With our UTG-200 system, a user is able
to simulate all 11 of these most essential exercises just by
reconfiguring the system.
home gyms are usually very limited in the amount resistance provided.
Our UTG-200 (UNIVERSAL TRAVEL GYM) can be loaded with a minimum of 10
lbs. resistance and go up to 200 lbs. resistance in 10-lb. increments, This
is accomplished through an “octopus elastic cable set;” each kit
contains two cable sets, left and right. Each set has 5 elastics; 5
lbs., 10 lbs., 20 lbs., 30 lbs., and 40 lbs. respectively. One simply
combines these different resistances to obtain the desired amount, and
clamps them to the “roller pin.” It’s easier than loading weights
on a bar! The unused cables are supported by a sleeve. There are five
models of the Suitcase Gym.
The “UNIVERSAL TRAVEL GYM” (UTG-150)
This is the model which we most recommend.
It consists of 4 components: A pair of octopus
cable sets, a “roller pin”, (combination hand/foot bar with roller),
a specially designed metal tubular collapsible frame, and a headrest. It
can be assembled and configured in seconds without tools and requires no
door, nor wall for mounting. The only requirement is a section of
smoothly carpeted floor about 9"x 2'5". The model UTG-150 fits
into a bag (26”x 6”x 6”), weighs under 20 lbs., accommodates
persons up to 5’10” tall, and costs $300. Resistance range is 10
lbs. to 150 lbs. in 10-LB increments.

The Power Stick is a smaller version of the UTG designed exclusively for
upper body workouts. One may perform pull-ups, bench press,
military press, rowing, arm curls, arm extensions, and abdominal

15-LB increments. One may simulate pull-ups, military press, rowing, arm
