Biomechanics: This trainer ergonomically adjusts to you, so you are always at the right height and right position to get the best workout possible.
User-defined Motion: The high-mass / low-travel, 1:2 resistance ratio allows you to feel a functional weight (the lifting weight) of half of that selected on the weight stack. This provides a smooth, positive feel and a long range of cable motion because the weight stack moves only half as far at the cable end, lessening the chances of the stack stopping abruptly against the end of its travel path.
Versatile Design: Unique pulley system with one-handed ergonomic handle easily adjusts to more than 30 starting positions, allowing unlimited exercises.
Motion Benefits: Functional Training allows strength training to be more applicable to the everyday movements of the body and sports-specific training. The FTS Glide Functional Trainer helps you build a strong core, improve balance, stability, and coordination, and increase overall strength.
Upper Body Stations: The FTS Glide is not organized into stations, but has unlimited upper and lower body options
Back and Core Stations: Integrated top bar for back and abdominal workouts and chin-ups.
Frame: Electrostatic powder-coated steel for durability and appearance.
Dual Independent Weight Stacks: Engage multiple planes of your body with dual-independent weight stacks. They engage more than one muscle and often more than one joint, plus your core, for isolateral resistance training.
Dual High / Low Pulleys: Unique high/low dual-pulley system with a one-handed ergonomic handle easily adjusts to more than 30 starting positions, allowing unlimited exercises.
Instructional Charts: An illustrated instructional placard guides users through effective exercise positions.
Instructional Chart(s) Language: English
Color: Gloss Metallic Silver
Guide Rods: 1-inch (25.4 mm) diameter chromed steel free-floating guide rods with sound-absorbing rubber ends to eliminate metal-on-metal contact for quiet operation.
Pulleys and Cables: Nylon/fiberglass pulleys. 1/8-inch (3 mm) military spec cable with a nylon sheath for minimal wear and more flexibility. Swiveling cable ends are tested to 2,000 lbs (909 kg) tensile strength.
Bearings: High-quality ABEC-rated ball bearings (Annular Bearing Engineers Committee).
Weight Stack(s): (2) fully enclosed weight stacks conceal and protect moving parts. The FTS Glide has a 1:2 ratio resistance factor, meaning you feel a functional resistance weight of half that of the selected weight. The actual single stack weight is 200 lbs (91 kg), which is 100 lbs (45 kg) functional resistance. The actual combined stack weight for both stacks is 400 lbs (182 kg), which is 200 lbs (91 kg) functional resistance.
Starting Resistance: 10 lbs / 4.5 kg
Standard Weight Stack: 200 lbs (91 kg) each of two stacks = 400 lbs (182 kg) total stack weight
Heavier Stack Option: No
Top Plate: Cast aluminum top plate.
