The SYWOS One, the sensational portable gym for staying fit, always and everywhere!
Think of a truly efficient, really portable and absolutely safe gym for a complete and intense body workout in half the time and with half the exercises!
The SYWOS One is truly efficient because you always train both sides of muscle groups (e.g. biceps and triceps, or back and abs, or glutes and lower abs) with the same resistance and with a sensationally smooth motion!
While elastic bands, expanders, slings, spring-loaded devices and weights only train one side of a muscle group (e.g. biceps) at a time, the SYWOS One and its absolutely new Linear Double Action LDA Friction technology, takes advantage of the complete return movement, thus always training the opposite side (e.g. triceps)!
The SYWOS One is really portable as it barely weighs 1lb, has removable handles and can be adjusted anywhere between real 1 lb to 13 lbs - providing an intense body workout whenever and wherever you want!
And, think of all you will save!
- Half of the exercises
- Half of the time needed before (at least!)
- Half of training positions
- Weights and parts for changing resistance
With the SYWOS One you leverage the return movement, training opposing muscle groups (like biceps and tricpes!) with linear resistance in one cycle - thus optimizing training time and balancing strength of opposed muscles!
The SYWOS One is your personal training device to keep you fit always, everywhere.
It works with a completely new patent pending LDA (Linear Double Action) Friction Technology and offers the following advantages:
- Resistance in both directions of movement at ANY point (Double Action), reduce workout time - intense training - balanced strength
Linear resistance at any point of the movement, regardless of speed or force applied! Similar to weights but even better as there is no inertial support, making training even more efficient
Exceptionally smooth gliding movement
- Absolutely safe: no weights, no elastic backslash, no attachment to doors or windows
- Ultra light - the SYWOS One only weighs aprox. 1 lb ! (like a tablet)
- Resistance Steplessly adjustable from 0,5kg to 6,5 kg or ca. 1 lb to 13 lbs all in one device (no extra parts!)
- Made for a lifetime: almost no wear and tear, automotive grade quality
Always ready to use: No ropes, no fiddling around, no extra parts
- Guided movement, no trembling, just concentrate on the involved muscles
Make the SYWOS One your permanent personal trainer!
The LDA Technology is the first true innovation for intense body strength training in a long time, it looks different (great), it feels different (great), it works different (great)!
Seamlessly integrate it into your lifestyle, using it at home, at work, on the go and anywhere else.
And the complete resistance range is build in.
No extra parts or attachments needed! Only adjust any resistance between lowest (1) and highest (5) level as shown in the below video.
While looking for a solution for improving our power and wellbeing, we were lucky to develop a high-end product, that can be produced at a reasonable price, enabling everyone to enjoy this extremely efficient and intense way of working out.
The SYWOS One efficiency was confirmed by a 1 month field study at the German Sports University in Cologne (Deutsche Sporthochschule Köln). Untrained and fairly trained participants were able to significantly increase individual muscle strength and their body strength. They loved working out with the SYWOS One so much, that they asked to keep a prototype (1 of only 9) so they could continue with the training.
The SYWOS One is a product designed and engineered in Germany, but with invaluable input from sports friends all over the world, specially USA and Europe!
We designed it to be highly durable - it is a product for a lifetime.
Work out on the go alone or in a group or team!
When having longer stays at airports, just assemble your SYWOS One and do something for your body and mind!
Warming up has never been so fast as you address opposing muscle groups in one cycle!
You have a free minute at home, work out with the SYWOS One!
Use a break at work for a fast and super efficient workout with the SYWOS One!
The SYWOS One is also a great device for training very individual muscle groups for improving the control and strength of dedicated movements of e.g. golf, tennis, squash, throwing.
You only need to resemble the motion with the SYWOS One and you immediately start strengthening the muscles needed for that individual movement in both directions. And as if it was not enough, the SYWOS One is also a perfect complement to a Yoga session as you can start with strengthening the muscles and then stretching them during the Yoga exercises. It is simply great!
See for yourself!
When hitting the ball in Golf the crucial moment is the impact itself. At this point it is very important to have a balance of strength between the pulling and the pushing arm. With the SYWOS One you can train exactly that part of the motion training both arms with the exact same resistance!
When playing Tennis or other Racquet Sports such as Squash or Paddle, it is very important to have a strong wrist at the moment of impact. Specially the backhand can prove problematic as the involved muscles are not trained naturally. That is why so many players play a two handed backhand. With the SYWOS One you can perfectly emulate the movement stabilizing the muscles in both directions. The movement becomes much more controlled in every sense!
When throwing a ball (here you can see Rainer with an American Football, which he loves practicing) not only the release movement is extremely important but also the bringing the arm into its release position. This should take place fast and strongly, thus building up release force. As you can see with the SYWOS One you can intensively train both part of the motion with only one exercise. Give it a try, you will be impressed!
So here are some ideas of exercises with the SYWOS One:
Who are we and how did we develop the SYWOS One?
Our big challenge was staying fit, specially getting enough muscle training for keeping the muscle mass, during day to day normal life: e.g. Ariane's problem was, her having to study intensively for her exams and thesis, thus sitting all day long. Rainers problem was, that while travelling and office working the hotel fitness rooms where badly equiped and available gear for training in hotel rooms are very limited (even not useful at all).
- Efficiency! Achieve a fast and thorough workout, using the return movement for training the opposing muscle group
- Extremely portable as we wanted it to be our daily companion
- Great design! We want it to be seen, like a great design piece
- Simplicity. Intuitive handling (we asked our grandparents to try it and they loved it)
- Adjustable. It had to challenge beginners as well as advanced sports enthusiasts.
- Flexible. Should enable the training of a wide range of muscle groups.
- Durability. Designed for a long life!
We, Ariane and Rainer (Daughter and Father), are sports enthusiasts looking for ways to keep fit while travelling, working, studying and any free time or other similar situation. We are both Industrial Engineers based in Germany and passionate about the opportunities our new technologies offer.
Rainer has worked for many years in industry leading companies like Siemens, Magna and Befesa gaining the necessary experience for launching products in the automotive supply industry. The extremely demanding automotive supply industry has resulted in choosing the best possible production partners for producing the SYWOS One.
Ariane just ended her industrial engineering career and is full of energy for creating new products. Specially her talent for design and her communication skills with the design partner has been crucial for taking the right decisions and achieving the amazing design of the SYWOS One. Further, amongst many other, she is driving the marketing activities of SYWOS.
Here are a few peaks behind the development of the SYWOS One:
This was the real proof of concept, but with constant resistance. Now we started to develop the adjustability. This was only possible with our great industrial partners!
The Design was the other challenge and getting it to the final design was only possible thanks to our great design partners!
So you can tell, it was a long journey until we had our first prototype ready with the right quality!
As many of you probably know, having a prototype is only half the challenge of launching a product. We are currently finalizing the tooling to start the first series production and need your help to bring the SYWOS One to everyone of you!

Thank you for your support and lets get fit!

Risks and challenges
The resistance technology used in the SYWOS One is first of its kind in fitness devices. For this reason we have applied for patent and design protection.
So far we have now built 9 fully functional Prototypes. These are the ones you see in our pictures and video. They are working better than expected and are the basis for the production tools we have started ordering.
For the series product we have improved many assembly aspects, increased the grip strength, optimized the tube length and the screw design and have included a scale so the user can see what resistance he/she is working out with.
There are also many challenges to overcome related to packaging and logistics.
But the tooling and working capital are by far the most important hurdles. We need your help to get all tools ready and start the production still during this year. With your support we can all start working out with the SYWOS One well before year end!
