Physical fitness has become an integral part of many lives in this day and age, statistical studies have shown that in the past 30 years the usage rates of gymnasiums and health centres have increased by over 300%.
In a recently conducted study it was found that 48% of all Americans visit the gym on a near daily basis.
This monumental shift has been due to the rising awareness of our unsustainable lifestyles. However, even with this ever growing awareness regarding health and fitness standards people find it difficult to carve out quality exercise time.

Click and Turn Technology
Usually changing weights can be a cumbersome process, not only are there physical risks involved but there are other complications which one might face.
Using the ‘Click and Turn’ mechanism changing weights comes fast, easy and less time consuming.
There are 2 principal mechanisms involved, the first is a butterfly screw and the second is a strong bolt, similar to a key and a lock.
With ¼ of a turn the butterfly interlocks the plates to each other and the strong bolt automatically locks it in place. Thus the plates are jammed into place until the user releases the bolt.
