Handy Gym is a portable device that uses inertial technology to generate different levels of resistance, so you can perform very effective concentric and eccentric muscle work on the whole body without using weights or elastic bands.
This type of training brings many beneﬁts and is used very efﬁciently in muscle improvement, injury prevention and fitness training. Its reduced weight and size lets you carry it with you to work in any situation, and with the accessories, you can perform a wide variety of routines.
It uses 3 varieties of inertial disks (Red, Yellow and Blue) that offer different resistances when placed on the machine, reaching up to 50kg (2 red discs). The Pulley accessory allows you to double the set resistance, so that you can reach up to 100kg of resistance (2 red discs + Pulley).
Handy Gym works with inertial discs that generate different resistances. There are 3 types:
2 Yellow discs = 0 to 18kg | 2 Blue discs = 0 to 34kg | 2 Red discs = 0 to 50kg
They can be combined with each other to obtain more weight variations, and if you have the pulley, you can double the power of these, reaching up to 100kg of resistance.
You must always use 2 discs (of any color) on the machine to work with Handy Gym.
The Encoder is the electronic part that is inside the device and allows a connection with the Handy Gym APP. From the App you can get real time data of your activity and statistics for each workout. All packs, except Handy Gym Original, include the Encoder. Not sold separately.
When Handy Gym connects to the APP, it allows you to obtain real-time data of your training, generating statistics with which you can measure your performance throughout your sessions. The main data you receive are RPM, Strength, Power and Calories.
Handy Gym has a fantastic, smooth, and progressive eccentric. A phase change without excessive jerks and with less risk of injury. The gear system acts as a light brake and does not return 100% of the energy generated.
No. The system incorporates a conical pulley that helps in the gradual increase of weight, so the resistance is dynamic depending on the force and speed you are applying. You can reach peaks of force above the resistance of the discs themselves.
The cord measures a total of 130inches (3,30mt) which allows you to adjust it to work at varying distances. It is recommended not to store all the cord on the reel and to always keep 30% of it on the outside.
It is a system designed for individual training. If it is to be used by several people consecutively, it is necessary to respect the rest periods stipulated in the user’s manual. Continued overexertion of the mechanism may cause damage to the system due to fatigue. Carefully review the correct use in the instructions for use.
Handy Gym is an advanced device that has been designed for professional use and is able to adapt to any circumstances. It is mandatory to carefully follow its instructions for use in order to use it correctly and safely.

Inertial technology consists of storing the kinetic energy generated in the concentric phase, to be returned in the eccentric phase. In this way, the eccentric resistance that the user will experience depends on the concentric force that he/she exerts on the machine. By slightly slowing down this inertia, the eccentric work of the movement is reinforced. It has been proven that muscular work in this phase of the exercise results in greater efficiency in the movements, building a higher quality muscle ﬁber in a shorter period of time. Its applications are enormous and experts in the world of sports and physiotherapy value it highly for the prevention of injuries, muscle retraining and improving muscle performance.
A new form of training that is becoming popular in both sports and medical circles and offers many beneﬁts.
The Handy Gym system does not require maintenance if it is used in the correct way, avoiding impact or improper use.
It is only necessary to check that the condition of its accessories is adequate; regular use may wear out some of the components. If so, they must be replaced to ensure the safety of the user and the correct operation of the machine.
The cord is a consumable material, and it is recommended that you grease it once a month with lithium grease (special grease for plastics) to increase its durability and reduce friction in the nozzle. If the Handy Gym is used daily, it is recommended that you grease it once a week. You can check the Handy Gym warranty and its components here: Handy Gym Warranty
Handy Gym’s gear system manages to multiply the force generated in a very small space. The friction of the gears rotating at high speed generates a sound that can vary depending on the intensity and speed applied, producing between 30 dB and 65 dB.
YES, you can use the SPLITIT tool as a payment method on our website to split your payment into several installments. You enter your payment information through SPLITIT and it indicates the number of available installments. Pay more comfortably to enjoy your Handy Gym immediately.
Important: Splitit does not accept American Express.
No. The Encoder is not sold separately. Only the Handy Gym Original model does not include an encoder. The rest of the packs do include it to connect to the APP and get data from your activity.
Always make sure that the discs are tight. Use the wrench on the rope adjuster and check the screws for any looseness. It is very important for your safety.
Remember that this part is not a spring or a brake, but a reference mark for you to keep a minimum distance from the machine. Crushing it or hitting it on the recoil is incorrect use as you are hitting the machine with every movement.
It is preferable not to wind all the cord on the reel; leave 30% outside so that it does not cause problems with the anchor buttons.
The trick to Handy Gym is to try to keep the cord taut at all times, both in concentric and eccentric phases. That way you get a better rebound and you make sure to make the most of the inertia it generates at all times.
The cord is an element that suffers a lot of friction at all times, and although it has been designed with high-strength materials and to withstand heavy loads, greasing it periodically increases its durability a lot. Grease once a month with lithium grease (special grease for plastics).
The colored inertial discs have different resistances. Try combining them to obtain varying degrees of tension and adjust the load according to the exercise.
Setting the right distance for each routine will ensure better execution and proper rebound. If you didn’t get it right the first time, use the adjuster to wind up or wind out to get the perfect distance to execute your exercise. It will make all the difference.
