The story of Bodyweight® started by an event that could have ended quite differently than it did. On February the 17th, 2013 we were on a trip to Santa Monica, CA, and were involved a car accident. We were hit by a taxi at the intersection of 4th Street and Broadway. Our car stood still, waiting to turning left, when a taxi drove straight into the right side of our car. Unlikely enough, we were able to get out of our wrecked car without a scratch.
Because of the accident, we have both suffered from whiplash injuries which initially limited us both in our daily lives. We therefore, immediately after our return home from our trip in the USA, contacted a naprapath. The naprapath directly started our treatments using band training, also called suspension training. Bandtraining involved static straps that hung from the ceiling and was used during both the treatment, rehabilitation and regular exercise. We previously had practiced everything from weight lifting, gymnastics and tennis, but from now on we just focused on practicing with these bands.
During our treatment and training, we used the bands all the time and soon discovered that there were improvements to be made, we simply saw an opportunity of product development for the bands.
We are both self-employed and just like most other couples we have a limited time to spend on our own training. We were pleasantly surprised to discover that this new form of exercise was so effective. Both in terms of how little time it consumes but of course the results we got.
Together we have experience in running profitable companies, business development and effective marketing and we used our collective knowledge and experience here. Thus began the development of our own product Bodyweight® Training System. We have developed the technology and performance of older band training equipment, improved the technology to a new level and created Bodyweight® Training System.
We are confident that Bodyweight® Training System is a concept for everyone. Whether you're physically fit or a beginner when it comes to training, whether you are young or old - everyone can use Bodyweight® Training System. Simple, fast and secure.
