About this project

Hey guys my name is Erik Rokisky.  I am a 21 year old college student, and I'm here on KICKSTARTER because I have a goal.

 As a personal trainer, my goals usually involve taking my clients' and my own body and health to the next level. I love those goals, because the only variable you need to accomplish them is your own autonomously sourced (but often externally sparked) determination and ambition. I'm a firm believer that if it's possible to be done alone, then it's going to get done, alone. 

And here I am, asking for help. Because I've got something that I can't get done alone. (For a guy that makes a living giving people a boost, I'd be lying if I said this wasn't at some small expense to my pride). So what do I have here? A solution to the problem that all good trainers are always trying to solve: How to help our clients when they are not with us. 

I see most of my clients only twice a week. That leaves 5 days out of each week where they are left alone to work towards their goals. Good personal trainers don't just guide you through the motions of the workout, they pass on knowledge on how to achieve a goal. Whether that goal is looking better naked, getting stronger, injury-proofing your body for sport, it starts with knowledge. What to do and how to do it correctly.

Since knowledge isn't a tangible commodity, I've developed the ROKBELL. A solution for the five days of the week you can't meet with your trainer. For anyone who depends on at-home workouts to achieve their goals. What are the issues with at-home workouts?  

·1) Correct form.  Always at the top of my list. Incorrect form slows results, causes injuries, and is incredibly easy to develop. The ROKBELL will force you to do movements properly and under control. This puts your body in a better position resulting in a better workout.

·2) Time. We lead busy lives. Work, family, friends, homes, commitments. You can get an amazing workout in 30 minutes with the ROKBELL. You can get an effective workout in 10. And I will have videos to guide you.

·3) Space. Exercise equipment takes up real estate. The ROKBELL is compact and multi-functional. Each device can be broken down into 3 small parts for storage.

When assembled it stands at 11 ¾ inches and can be extended up to 15 inches tall.

·4) Versatility. Most exercise products are limited to a handful of exercises. This can cause boredom and lead to plateus. The ROKBELL is six products in one.Each one can weigh up to 30 pounds and be adjusted with 5 interchangeable 5 lb plates. In addition, the height of the handle can be raised or lowered allowing for maximum customization for each individual. The ROKBELL is going to smash your plateaus and get you to a level you didn’t think was possible

5) Value. The ROKBELL is not going to put a hole in your pocket. It is 6 products in 1 ! No more excuses. The ROKBELL is the only tool you need to get in awesome shape.

Well, I know it's been claimed a million times by other products, but the ROKBELL™ has been designed to actually be the only workout tool you'll ever need to get into phenomenal shape.  The patent pending design allows for more muscle activation and more versatility then any device on the market.

I personally love going to the gym, but I understand that people live busy lives and simply don't have the time or energy to make the trip every day. The ROKBELL™ will allow people to get an amazing workout in just 30 minutes.

No more excuses. You will have the Swiss Army Knife of fitness equipment. ROK PUSH LIFT℠

Production and marketing are just the beginning. Once the product has been green-lit for production, I plan to start Rokbellpro™ - a member-based online program that allows people to belong to an open forum where diet, workouts, nutrition, and supplementation will be discussed in a way that any body with 30 minutes a day can take advantage of. The goal of Rokbellpro™ will be to create a fitness community that doesn't allow you to be lazy and holds accountable for your health, yet doesn't expect ridiculous sacrifices to get you into shape (unless of course you're willing to go for it!). An exercise database will be established teaching you how to perform the most efficient movements with the ROKBELL™. 

This can only happen with your help. The ROKBELL™ is a Rokisky family endeavor, and we're trying to keep it as local and personal as possible. We have invested 25 thousand dollars in building a working prototype model, acquiring a trademark and patent but unfortunately, we have run out of funding. We need additional funding for first production tooling and a marketing launch. We are asking the Kickstarter community to help make this dream become a reality.  Please choose one of the rewards below or help share this page via twitter or facebook. 

Thank you all! RokPushLift

Risks and challenges

There are always going to be risks when creating a new product. First production tooling and molding is a huge investment. However, we have put in thousands of hours reaching out to companies to create a product that everyone is going to love. I have two years experience as a personal trainer and currently in school to be a health fitness specialist. I know what works and I know how to get people in awesome shape. The ROKBELL is guaranteed to get you in the best shape of your life.
