Mueller Sports Medicine Announces Exclusive Partnership with Handy Gym™

Corporate • November 17, 2021

PRAIRIE DU SAC, WISCONSIN (November 17, 2021) — Mueller Sports Medicine announced an exclusive partnership with Handy Gym™, which is billed as the smallest gym in the world.

Handy Gym™ uses unique NASA-engineered flywheel technology to create resistance without the use of heavy, cumbersome weights. You can track your progress via your mobile phone that also includes hundreds of exercises. The lightweight design at two pounds makes it portable and versatile for a variety of different needs.

The innovative technology uses customizable resistance training (Inertial Technology) for a personalized, powerful fitness experience. With the inertial discs and pulley, there are 12 different levels of resistance.Inertial Technology is a new type of strength training method which is independent of gravity and it allows resistance training without lifting even one pound, thus offering stronger and safer fitness results. The technology was originally developed for NASA astronauts. Handy Gym™ then incorporated that technology in response to Manuel Montes and his 11-year battle with Parkinson’s Disease as he struggled with energy, effort and motivation.  

His main goal was to create a portable gym that allowed him to work out whenever, wherever and however he wanted, in a safe, new and comfortable way.

“Handy Gym™ is ideal for full-body training, body strengthening, muscle toning and injury prevention,” said John Cayer, President of Mueller Sports Medicine. “The flywheel mechanism provides a seldom used training modality that maximizes force output. It’s a versatile option for those who don’t want to waste time going to the gym, have limited space, travel often or want a quick and easy setup for a workout.”
