About this project

There are TWO DIRECTIONS of tension created by resistance bands:

 

 

 

 

Below illustrates when the bar is at rest versus when the bar is pulled apart. HOWEVER, the bar should be extended and pulled apart throughout the entire exercise.

How it works? 

Pull the bars apart so that the nylon straps remain flat. This extends the resistance band within the bar to create tension, ensuring that your muscles are always working and burning calories!

 

 

 

 

                   

Whether you want to strength train, do Pilates, abs, or cardio, the Tension Toner fit bar will enhance your workout in an ENTIRELY NEW WAY!  

Spice up jumping jacks with Tension Toner! 

Workout your UPPER BODY, ABS and LEGS at the same time!  


Turn any workout into a FULL BODY exercise and get more from your workouts! 

 

 

We know this is a big list, but fear not!  

With your free lifetime membership, you'll have access to our full exercise video library to demonstrate how each exercise is done with proper form.

You can learn them all over the course of a day, week, month, year (or several years)—no pressure :-)

You can change the resistance within the bar in seconds so your workout remains uninterrupted.

Choose the resistance level that matches your fitness level (beginner, intermediate, advanced). 

  • BEGINNER: perfect for longer, aerobic style workouts.
  • INTERMEDIATE: perfect for building lean muscle and burning calories. 
  • ADVANCED: perfect for increasing muscle mass.

Enhance your results by activating more muscles!  

To test Tension Toner's effectiveness, we used electromyography (EMG) technology to measure muscle activity. EMG is the gold standard for this type of testing.     

We compared the muscle activation and calories burned with Tension Toner, versus: 1) resistance bands and 2) dumbbells.

15 pounds of resistance was used for each test.  

Here are the results:

 Versus weight training:  

Tension Toner increased muscle activity by 143% MORE THAN weight training. 

Tension Toner increased calories burned by 160% MORE THAN weight training.

Versus resistance band training:  

Tension Toner Increased muscle activity by 136% MORE THAN resistance band training. 

Tension Toner increased calories burned by 151% MORE THAN resistance band training.  

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

In order to keep the nylon straps flat, you have to control the movement.

If you add too much resistance, you will not be able to keep the straps flat. 

This visual feedback keeps you within the weight limit that you should be lifting.

 

 

 
  • Get MORE from your workout by clipping on resistance bands OR clipping on pulleys from cable machines at the gym.

If you have resistance bands of your own that you want to use, or you've bought another resistance band system, you can use Tension Toner to enhance these workouts!

Not only can you can enhance any home workout, but you can also enhance your gym workouts too!

Don't want to be stuck inside? Spice up your fit trail workouts too!

Let's face it...the fit trails in the park are awful. They're mostly a glorified stretching trail. We spiced it up with Tension Toner!

 

 

  

  • Tension Toner comes fully assembled so you can just take it out of the box and start working out.

 

 

 

 

The super lightweight bar weighs only 1.5 lbs! 

 

 

 

There’s no limit of where you can take your exercise! 

  

 

                                                           

 

Every square inch of this product is premium quality. From the thick woven nylon straps to the super strong and ultra-durable plastic, your bar is built to last for years to come!

 

 

  • It feels good to hold. We use non-porous rubber with an air channel design. 
  • This means the hand grip is not slick or slimy feeling like some coated grips tend to be.

 

 


Don’t sacrifice quality for looks, or vice versa. You can have both! The deep, radiant red bar paired with the silky black nylon and black diamond grip provides a stunning visual appeal.

 

 

 

 

 

                                         

 When you buy Tension Toner, you're getting all of the following:

(1) Tension Toner, (3) resistance bands [light,medium,heavy]
(2) handle attachments, (1) door anchor, (1) drawstring bag, (1) exercise guide

The more successful this project is, the more stuff we will unlock.

This is to give early backers (like you) some extra incentive to share us with your friends and family! Here are some of the stretch goals. We will be adding and adjusting the stretch goals based on your feedback in the comments section.

 

 

The inspiration for my invention came from my grandpa. He was a workout-lover himself and had incredible strength. He was able to rip phone books with ease.  

My grandpa showed me some exercise techniques using just a towel. It had been quite effective in spite of the fact that a towel gave you no feedback that would tell you if you were pulling it hard enough. Also, there was no way to raise the difficulty level of the exercise. This inspired the design of Tension Toner. I started thinking, "Well, what if there was a device that had two directions of resistance--one from pulling an exercise bar apart, and the other direction of resistance coming from clipping resistance bands onto the bar itself." And from that point forward, I set out to make the ultimate resistance workout bar- Tension Toner.

 After countless nights rolling in bed thinking of creating this fitness product, Tension Toner is now almost ready for its official debut. 

We are at the cliff so to speak, ready to jump and take the dive into mass production. It’s an incredible feeling seeing how far we’ve come, and I’m still at a loss for words of how amazing this journey has been. There were a ton of downs too (too many to list haha), so I’ll just keep it positive :-)

I am extremely grateful for the opportunity to provide you with the highest quality fitness product that you can use virtually anywhere. However, we don’t want to put the cart before the horse as there is still a lot of work ahead of us. And YOU are the biggest part of the equation. We can’t manufacture and ship Tension Toner without your support.

WHY WE ARE ON KICKSTARTER

To date, Kickstarter has collectively raised over 2.5 billion dollars through their platform. It is an established and trusted third party site which provides a win-win for both the project creator (me) and the project supporter (you). 

It's a win for me because I get the money I need to fund the last stage of getting this idea completely launched without taking money from outside investors. If you've ever watched Shark Tank, one consistent theme is the tremendous amount of upfront capital that leave most entrepreneurs in the hole.

Secondly, it gives you the opportunity to be part of history. Granted not all these projects go on to build a legacy. However, I believe that whether the project goes on to raise hundreds of dollars, thousands of dollars, or millions of dollars, one thing remains true. You're on the ground floor and involved in the behind the scenes process to building a company that could impact people's lives now and for many years to come.

We're All In.... On the Business + You

Besides it making fiscal sense to launch here, we know what a positive impact this product can have on people all over the world. 

With Tension Toner, you’ve got everything you need to make the change you want in your life. 

There’s no reason to live your life wishing for a better, healthier body and life…..when you can be that person right now! 

I hope one day I have a chance to hear from you and hear your story of how this product has impacted your life.

We have self-funded the design and testing of Tension Toner. Now, after several prototype iterations and coordinating with our manufacturer, we are ready to launch!  The money raised will go directly to manufacturing, quality assurance, packaging and shipping.

Risks and challenges

We have budgeted and researched every step of the production-creation process. We have built a contingency in the budget to ensure that there are no financial roadblocks from keeping us from delivering your product.
Here are some factors that may cause delays:
Unexpected demand: while definitely a positive thing, receiving more orders than planned can delay production time by 2 to 4 weeks.
Your creativity: Kickstarter is all about harvesting the brainpower and imagination of backers like you. So we are expecting some great ideas to pour in, which may alter the final product in some capacity. Depending on the change, this will change the timeline for the tooling and the production by upwards of a month.
Freight - Port closures and customs delays happen, especially around the holidays. While it is impossible to know when and for how long, we have padded the timeline to account for such delays.
ADDITIONAL TESTING: We will only put out the best quality product possible. That means that we may have complete some more vigorous testing. This should not cause any delays unless there is a problem that arises during the testing phase.

The buffer calculated into the timeline should cover this, but it is an unknown.
