Thank you to everyone who supported the Maxx Bench Kickstarter campaign! Without your amazing help, generous pledges, positive feedback and endless encouragement, we would never have succeeded. We are humbled and grateful for this experience. The Maxx Bench team is much larger than where we started and that is all because of YOU! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!! We can't wait to move forward on this journey!
The Maxx Bench is the first safe free weight exercise bench in the world that does not compromise the integrity of the exercise. It allows athletes to press the upper limits and rescue themselves from heavy weights by simply pushing a foot lever.
The Maxx Bench allows you to complete the most important final repetitions to make the biggest gains. It allows you to press the limits, and more importantly, press YOUR limits - without ever putting yourself at risk.
Every weight lifter that has ever been on a free weight bench press knows the feeling of maximum fatigue. You have pushed out every last repetition and there is no way you can get the barbell off your chest - until now. With our patent pending safety technology, the Maxx Bench removes the weights safely from your hands after you have pressed yourself to the Maxx.
No Interference, No Compromise!
Unlike other equipment you see in the weight room, the Maxx Bench provides top level safety while maintaining the integrity of the exercise we all love - the bench press. Complete FULL repetitions without ever clanking the bar off the safety racks. No cables, no weight stacks. Just the same good old fashioned bench press, now with a new element of safety!
Automatic Bench Return
Your gym time is too valuable to spend it resetting the equipment to that perfect height. When you are finished, the bench automatically returns to the starting height.
Adjustable Bench Height
No more pins to adjust positioning. If you do need to make adjustments, make them on the bench! It is time for old fashioned adjustable pins to be a thing of the past. Stay on the equipment, use the foot pedal and let the hydraulics do the work to get the perfect position.
Tested and Rated for Commercial and Home Use
Tested to industry standards and rated for both commercial and residential use. With safety in mind and the thought of weight lifters pushing the maximum limits on our equipment, we tested the Maxx Bench to the upper limits of capacity.
The strength and durability of the Maxx Bench is unquestionable. When is the last time you saw anybody bench press a pickup truck?
Gym Owners. Protect Your Clients, Protect Yourselves!
Reduce the liability of bench press injuries. How many people belong to 24-hour gyms? Many of us work second or third shifts at work, can’t sneak out of the house until later at night, or have their best work outs at three in the morning. People all over are in the gym during off-peak hours and left alone on the weight bench with little to no help around them. Again, you are stuck in a risky situation without the right solution to save you. Gym owners and gym goers can feel secure and safe once again. Those of you who own gyms can now have extra coverage for all the lives you are liable for and those of you who go to the gym now have an added element of reliability and security, knowing you are out of harms way.
Whether you have your own gym, are a gym owner, or just want to see the Maxx Bench in your gym, now is your time to show your support. It’s time to make a change and bring the Maxx Bench to the gym.
As a Parent or a Friend, Don't Let Someone You Love Get Seriously Injured While Benching Alone
Have you ever been or are you still a parent who has children who lift alone down in the basement or out in the garage? Does the thought ever cross your mind to watch them during their work out or listen more closely in case they are yelling for your help? And even if you are home and paying attention, it can only take a minute for a mistake to occur and change your or your child’s life forever. These accidents happen many times, but the actions taken to change this result have been minimal. Why? It’s time to make a change and take an element of danger out of your home, and get on a Maxx Bench.
When you’re at home, most of us know a lot of the times you are working out alone. Whether it’s right or wrong, it’s just a fact of life. A home gym is meant to be accessible and efficient, but should also be SAFE. The Maxx Bench accomplishes both of these goals.
Many times in life we are faced with dangerous scenarios over and over again. Sometimes we walk away unharmed or unscathed, living to tell the terrible story. For far too long, we have allowed ourselves to risk our lives under potentially fatal weights whether you are lifting alone or with a spotter. It is common for humans to follow the group and not question the reasons. It is easy to stay the course and forgo finding a new path. When the new path can lead to stronger people in a safer environment, the benefits are endless. It's time for a paradigm shift.
Risks and challenges
We have worked extremely hard to prepare this product for Kickstarter. We have tested several prototypes in our own gyms and gone through several product iterations. We have pushed ourselves and others to failure on the bench countless times to simulate real time, dangerous situations. We are confident in our product and ready to take it to the next level!
The risks and challenges we foresee moving forward are listed below:
ADDITIONAL TESTING: As we prepare the Maxx Bench for production, we will build several pre-production prototypes for additional testing. We will distribute these prototypes to the most demanding weightlifters and fitness professionals for at least a four week test period. We have tested the Maxx Bench extensively, but we anticipate some enhancements to incorporate into the final design. This process will help us deliver the best product possible.
MANUFACTURING AND ASSEMBLY: We are confident in our world class manufacturing team. They have a proven track record for quality and on time delivery with large scale production and assembly. We will work together to seemlessly transition from prototype to production.
FULFILLMENT: Often times while releasing new products, issues arise that could cause delays. Back ordered parts and manufacturing failure can occur. To minimize the possibility of these setbacks, we are entering the production stage with a proven team. Back-up suppliers and manufacturers are already in place for all components. Any unforeseen obstacles that arise during the process will be handled by our internal product experts and our external manufacturing professionals.
