INTRODUCING THE NEWEST IN SMART FITNESS: AUSFIT TORSION BARS

Once upon a time, there was a guy named Anthony. Last name Richardson. He spent 11 years in the Australian Military. The subtext of that sentence? He’s super ripped. In 2013, he created a fitness product called AUSFIT Torsion Bars based on a very specific piece of equipment Anthony used to use during his time in the military (aka getting ripped).

A torsion bar is basically a heavy steel bar that is fitted to the chassis of military vehicles. It is used as a weighted piece of equipment during training drills and military fitness exercises (sounds like boot camp on steroids, can we get an amen?). When Anthony got out of the military, he sought out a similar apparatus to use in his civilian boot camp sessions as a personal trainer. When he couldn’t find one, he did what any good entrepreneur would do:

He made his own.

After the fourth iteration of the AUSFIT Torsion Bar, Anthony finally got what he wanted: a sleek design, robust durability and versatility. Boom. These bars are now used in boot camps, personal training sessions, cycling and Pilates, and even rehabilitation centers across Australia, as well as for the Australian and New Zealand military (Woah, that was a mouth full). One of the most amazing things about these bars is how portable they are: you can literally use them to train anywhere, anytime.

AUSFIT Torsion bars even offer a monthly ‘Train Anywhere’ membership program which educates and motivates their customers by providing fresh workout ideas by some of the best trainers in the industry. Thus, making Torsion Bars suitable for any outdoor or at home fitness routine.

A Torsion Bar workout is a high intensity, full body strength workout encompassing tradition compound movements as well as slow isolating exercises using off-set grips on the Torsion Bar to increase the load on the muscle without increasing the weight of the Bar. A Torsion Bar session will have you moving through exercises you would have usually performed with a dumbbell, Kettle bell, Barbell and Medicine Ball all in one workout with 1 piece of equipment – The Torsion Bar.
