The T-Bow

The T-Bow
The latest piece of home exercise equipment we are using in our Pilates classes !!!

 

 

Well I bet you've never heard of a T-Bow or Tbow. Am I right? Thought I was! Actually, neither had I until a few months ago. We were at a Fitness exhibition in London when I saw this - Thing. Looked like a small humpback bridge in bright orange with a blue exercise mat fixed to the convex side. Gaps in the sides meant you could pick it up and carry it like a briefcase. I lifted one - not heavy; I could easily carry 2 and I'm not exactly built like Charles Atlas.

I laid it down and turned it over, curved-side down. Hmm. Footgrips. By now I was intrigued. I'm always interested in portable, versatile pieces of exercise equipment that I can load into my dogeared, faithful old car and take to torture - I mean train - clients with. (My beloved old Heap of Tin is named Milo. I kid you not; Bob's car is called Donkey!! )

All the time that I was sniffing around this T-Bow like an overgrown Labrador, the attendant was watching me with a grin. No attempt at hard-sell (which I hate), just letting me have a good nosey. When I looked up, she caught my eye and gestured at the T-Bow. "Want a go?" was all she needed to say. I wagged my tail.

She showed me how to put my feet on the footgrips and swing the T-Bow from side to side so that it rocked. It was great! And in less than a minute I was really feeling the burn and beginning to pant a bit. I could rock forward and back by turning through a right angle, balance and do squats. Wow!

Then she turned it over, curved side up, put resistance bands through the gaps in the sides and showed me seated exercises, standing exercises, lying-on-your-back exercises, lying-on-your-front exercises, sidelying exercises. My jaw dropped lower and lower. I wouldn't have been surprised if she'd shown me a standing-on-your-head exercise. I was hooked! What an amazingly versatile piece of kit this was!

Now, I have gone through all the variables of home exercise equipment. I have had a huge multigym in my back bedroom. I have had exercise bikes, walking machines, crosstrainers. I have tripped over dumbbells and banged my shins on mini-trampolines. They all look hideous and are a nightmare to dust. And if you cover them with sheets, it looks like the Addams Family moved in!

And then there are these gadgets that can be put up and taken down and stored in a cupboard after you've exercised. Well, for one thing you can never be bothered to haul them out and build them, and if you do, you're too worn out to exercise!

This T-Bow thing can be stacked, rested up against the wall or even shoved under your bed. Just take it out, lay it down and you're ready to rock! Never before have I come across a single piece of kit on which you can do your whole workout - warmup, cardio, toning and stretching - with no other accessory than a flexiband. And in such a small amount of space!

Reader, I bought them.

Two to start with. One for me, one for him. Child settled for an ipod instead (I think I got done there!) I took them along to show my Personal Training clients - as in "Look, look, I've got a new toy!" The first two clients bought the first two T-Bows. Not exactly the Cunning Plan!

And that's the story so far. The Cunning Plan is to build up a stock of 15 Tbows and introduce them into our Pilates classes - nobody else that we know of has toys like these, teehee. Trouble is, everybody who sees them wants to buy one and we haven't been able to keep 15 yet!

The T-Bow
Lo último en material fitness para ejercitarse en casa, lo estamos utilizando en nuestras clases de Pilates !!!

 

Bueno Apuesto usted nunca ha oído hablar de un T-Bow o Tbow. Am I right? ¿Tengo razón? Thought I was! Pensé que era! Actually, neither had I until a few months ago. En realidad, ni me había hasta hace unos meses. We were at a Fitness exhibition in London when I saw this - Thing. Estábamos en una exposición en Londres Físico cuando vi esto - Cosa. Looked like a small humpback bridge in bright orange with a blue exercise mat fixed to the convex side. Parecía un pequeño puente jorobadas en naranja brillante con una alfombra azul ejercicio fijo a la cara convexa. Gaps in the sides meant you could pick it up and carry it like a briefcase. Las lagunas en las partes significa que usted podría cogerlo y llevarlo como un maletín. I lifted one - not heavy; I could easily carry 2 and I'm not exactly built like Charles Atlas. Me levantó un - no pesado; yo podría fácilmente llevar 2, y no estoy precisamente como Charles Atlas.

I laid it down and turned it over, curved-side down. Me lo puso y se lo entregaron, curvado hacia abajo. Hmm. Footgrips. By now I was intrigued. Por ahora me ha intrigado. I'm always interested in portable, versatile pieces of exercise equipment that I can load into my dogeared, faithful old car and take to torture - I mean train - clients with. Estoy siempre interesado en el portátil, versátil piezas de equipo de ejercicio que puedo cargar en mi dogeared, fiel viejo coche y tomar a la tortura - me refiero a los trenes - con los clientes. (My beloved old Heap of Tin is named Milo. I kid you not; Bob's car is called Donkey!! ) (Mi querido viejo Heap de Tin se llama Milo. Pibe que yo no; de José el coche se llama Donkey!)

All the time that I was sniffing around this T-Bow like an overgrown Labrador, the attendant was watching me with a grin. Todo el tiempo que estuve en torno a la inhalación de este T-Bow como un overgrown Labrador, el asistente me estaba mirando con una sonrisa. No attempt at hard-sell (which I hate), just letting me have a good nosey. No intento de hard-venta (que yo odio), sólo permitirme tener una buena nosey. When I looked up, she caught my eye and gestured at the T-Bow. Cuando miré, ella captó mi mirada y gestos en la T-Bow. "Want a go?" "Want a ir?" was all she needed to say. Era todo lo que necesitaba decir. I wagged my tail. I wagged mi cola.

She showed me how to put my feet on the footgrips and swing the T-Bow from side to side so that it rocked. Ella me mostró cómo poner mis pies sobre la footgrips swing y el T-Bow de un lado a otro para que sacudió. It was great! Fue genial! And in less than a minute I was really feeling the burn and beginning to pant a bit. Y en menos de un minuto yo era realmente la sensación de quemadura y empezando a pant un poco. I could rock forward and back by turning through a right angle, balance and do squats. Podría roca hacia adelante y atrás girando a través de un ángulo recto, el equilibrio y hacer okupas. Wow!

Then she turned it over, curved side up, put resistance bands through the gaps in the sides and showed me seated exercises, standing exercises, lying-on-your-back exercises, lying-on-your-front exercises, sidelying exercises. Luego, lo entregaron, curvado hacia arriba, la resistencia a poner las bandas a través de las lagunas de las partes y me mostró los ejercicios sentado, de pie ejercicios, mintiendo-en-su-ejercicios de espalda, acostado-en-su-frente ejercicios, sidelying ejercicios. My jaw dropped lower and lower. Mi mandíbula inferior y cayó más bajo. I wouldn't have been surprised if she'd shown me a standing-on-your-head exercise. Yo no habría sido sorprendido si ella me había mostrado permanente-en-su-cabeza ejercicio. I was hooked! Yo estaba enganchado! What an amazingly versatile piece of kit this was! ¡Qué increíblemente versátil pieza de este kit fue!

Now, I have gone through all the variables of home exercise equipment. Ahora, he pasado por todas las variables de casa ejercicio el equipo. I have had a huge multigym in my back bedroom. He tenido una gran multigym en mi espalda dormitorio. I have had exercise bikes, walking machines, crosstrainers. He tenido bicicleta, a pie de máquinas, crosstrainers. I have tripped over dumbbells and banged my shins on mini-trampolines. He tropezarse con mancuernas y golpeó mi espinillas en la mini-trampolines. They all look hideous and are a nightmare to dust. Todos mirada horrible y son una pesadilla para el polvo. And if you cover them with sheets, it looks like the Addams Family moved in! Y si ellos cubren con hojas, que parece que la Familia Addams trasladado en!

And then there are these gadgets that can be put up and taken down and stored in a cupboard after you've exercised. Y luego están esos gadgets que se pueden poner arriba y abajo adoptadas y almacenados en un armario, después de haber ejercido. Well, for one thing you can never be bothered to haul them out and build them, and if you do, you're too worn out to exercise! Bueno, para una cosa que nunca puede ser molestado en lance a cabo y construir, y si lo haces, estás demasiado agotado para ejercer!

This T-Bow thing can be stacked, rested up against the wall or even shoved under your bed. Este T-Bow cosa se puede apilar, descansaba contra la pared o incluso empujó debajo de su cama. Just take it out, lay it down and you're ready to rock! Justo lo saca, ponerla, y ya está listo para el rock! Never before have I come across a single piece of kit on which you can do your whole workout - warmup, cardio, toning and stretching - with no other accessory than a flexiband. Nunca antes he encontrado una sola pieza de un juego en el que usted puede hacer todo su sesión de ejercicios - calentamiento, cardio, tonificar y estirar - sin ningún otro accesorio que un flexiband. And in such a small amount of space! Y en esa pequeña cantidad de espacio!

Reader, I bought them. Reader, que compré.

Two to start with. Dos para empezar. One for me, one for him. Uno para mí, uno para él. Child settled for an ipod instead (I think I got done there!) I took them along to show my Personal Training clients - as in "Look, look, I've got a new toy!" Niño se establecieron en lugar de un ipod (Creo que me ha hecho!) Me tomó a lo largo de ellas para mostrar mi Capacitación clientes - como en "Mira, mira, yo tengo un nuevo juguete!" The first two clients bought the first two T-Bows. Los dos primeros clientes han comprado los dos primeros T-Arquería. Not exactly the Cunning Plan! No es exactamente el Plan Cunning!

And that's the story so far. Y esa es la historia hasta el momento. The Cunning Plan is to build up a stock of 15 Tbows and introduce them into our Pilates classes - nobody else that we know of has toys like these, teehee. El Cunning Plan es la construcción de una reserva de 15 Tbows y introducirlos en nuestro Pilates clases - nadie más que sabemos ha de juguetes como estos, teehee. Trouble is, everybody who sees them wants to buy one and we haven't been able to keep 15 yet! El problema está en que los ve todo el mundo quiere comprar uno y no hemos sido capaces de mantener 15 todavía!
