Body Champ IT8070 Inversion Table Details
Just as with any type of fitness equipment, buying an inversion therapy table presents you with a staggering number of choices. Each brand has many different styles of table that range from the basic inversion table to the professional models with motor drives and vibrating back cushions. When looking at inversion tables there are a few key factors to consider. Lets see how the Body Champ IT8070 holds up when examined with these key factors.
A few years ago, inversion tables were all very expensive. Now it seems that compatition and consumer education have worked their magic and brought down prices as a whole. The IT8070 is an inversion table of basic design but with several up scale features and quality construction that give it the value of an mid range table. This table usually retails for around $229 but can be found for less during sales and special promotions. So, from a cost stand point the IT8070 is a good deal.
Control of Body Position
This is the most important of the key factors for inversion tables. It is critical that you are able to easily control the movement of your body throughout the inversion process. High end tables provide motor drives that allow you to control your body position throughout inversion. Lower end tables use straps and other mechanical devices to help you control your body position.
- The IT8070 uses safety straps to help you pre-set the angle you will invert to so that you will not accidentally invert to far
- Large U-shaped handles provide a good grip and leverage to make it easier to invert and return to the upright position
The straps are a basic safety feature included with most tables however, the large u-shaped handles are considered an accessory by many brands but are standard on the Body Champ IT8070.
Ease of Assembly
Ever get one of those items that promise easy assembly and then when you try to put it together you begin to think your trying to solve a rubiks cube? This is'nt one of those. All you need are to adjustable wrenches and a tape measure with both metric and standard measure.
Assembly instructions break down to 4 steps and although there may seem to be a lot of nuts and bolts, a size chart is provided to help identify them and there are only a couple of sizes to worry with.
Instructions are clearly understandable and the illustrations provided leave little doubt as to what you need to do.
As a device that comes with some assembly required, the IT8070 is one that can claim ease of assembly.
The Body Champ IT8070 Folds for storage by releasing the cross support bracket and folding the legs, flipping the table into it's inverted position and pulling the locking pin to collapse the adjustable foot brace assembly.
It can then be stored in a handy closet or out of the way corner.
I would have to say that the easy folding and storage claim is well deserved.
