With the Doorway Fitness Tower, you are able to accomplish all your fitness goals while simultaneously avoiding time constraints and gym costs.

People think that gyms with expensive equipment is the best way to get a workout, but we see many professional athletes - and the military - utilizing bodyweight exercises even though they both have access to the latest advanced technology.

In an article published in the Strength and Conditioning Journal, Jeffery S. Harrison explains that bodyweight exercise, as opposed to weight training, is optimal for core and joint stability. The musculature of the core is also considered the powerhouse muscles, since this area plays a major role in the performance of the other muscle groups. Strengthening the core area not only helps with overall health, it also aids in physical performance and injury prevention.

Harrison also describes how bodyweight exercise improves your strength relative to your weight, which some believe to be a better goal than overall absolute strength. He describes some great examples of bodyweight exercises (e.g. push-ups, pull-ups, chin-ups, over-handed inverted-rows, dips, squats, lunges, skips, bounds, body builders, mountain climbers, burpees, body killers, and jumping jacks), which can be achieved with the Doorway Fitness Tower. There are many more bodyweight exercises made possible with the Doorway Fitness Tower due to its sophisticated design.
