The Leg Master® Total Body gives the best full body workout outside of the gym – and only takes 60 seconds a day!
With many of us staying at home, we’re suddenly looking for new and novel ways to stay fit and healthy. One particular piece of equipment, The Leg Master® Total Body, promises a full body workout in less than 60 seconds, plus a whole range of other proven health benefits.
The Leg Master® Total Body uses your own body weight to provide classic strength training and deliver a full body workout. It slims, tones and shapes the inner thigh, outer buttocks, lower leg, front of the thigh, and back of the thigh. It also engages the lower abdominals and the lower back, and with the addition of the NEW flexible handlebar – helps to tones the upper arms, upper back and chest.
Over 200 muscles in the lower and upper body, work simultaneously, to raise the entire body weight up against gravity to the top of the specifically designed curved ramp. In addition, the Pelvic Floor is repeatedly contracted and strengthened. Pelvic Floor health is essential not only for women who have had babies – but for everyone (men included!), and one beneficial side effect of The Leg Master® Total Body is that the muscles used to control ‘incontinence’ are strengthened, and tightened.
Fiona Summers, whose husband invented The Leg Master® Total Body says: “Many people who live a usually active lifestyle will suddenly find themselves house bound. The Leg Master® Total Body can help to break the monotony of the day. It releases endorphins whilst getting a cardiovascular workout and maintaining your fitness levels. We recommend that you use it for just a few seconds a day, up to 60 seconds, 2 or 3 times a week.”
Fiona’s Husband Neil is an inventor and created The Leg Master® Total Body after the birth of their fourth daughter. Fiona says: “When I was 43 years old my pelvic floor was definitely not in good shape. My days of going on the trampoline were definitely over and going out shopping was a challenge unless bathrooms close by. I didn’t have control and felt embarrassed to talk about it. That’s when I asked my husband to create something to help people like me feel confident again. We wanted something that everyone could do in the comfort of their own homes, and which would get great results in a short amount of time. We developed The Leg Master® Total Body, the minute-a-day routine that’ll help you take back control.”
The Leg Master® Total Body gives fast results and can be felt working immediately. It is a cardiovascular workout and release endorphins, whilst helping to keep you slim, toned and strong. It can also be used standing up or sitting down which makes it ideal for both active people and those struggling with mobility issues.
Fiona advises starting with just a few repetitions “I recommend using The Leg Master® Total Body for a few seconds each time, throughout the day. If you start small -15, 30, 60 seconds each day you can add more and more sessions to see more results. Each time just a couple of repetitions will wake up muscles and start strengthening them. The muscles that do the heavy lifting are those of the inner thigh. These are the hard-to-reach muscles, not normally used in exercise. As you stand on the The Leg Master® Total Body – your body weight rests on the lower section of the curved ramp, but lifting your body weight up the ramp – even though you’re gliding gently – takes a lot of muscle-power.”
Research has show that during squats, virtually no muscle activity takes place in the ‘inner thigh region’, whereas using The Leg Master® works both the quads and also the inner thigh area together. The same study also highlighted the fact that the metabolic effects of using the LegMaster were equivalent to fast jogging.
Another study showed that when using The Leg Master® the muscles of the spine and the back were more highly activated than when walking. This study also showed using The Leg Master® had significantly less impact on the joints than walking.
