Our FREE Exercise Guide will introduce you to a range of simple, effective exercises to get you set up and getting fit in less than 5 minutes. 


No matter what your fitness ability or goal, The Microgym has been designed to make it easier to workout whenever, wherever. 



The Microgym has been specifically developed to provide a full body workout outside of the gym. Using a lower weight, higher reps approach, the Microgym focuses on 3 key areas:


Who is the Microgym for? 

If you're new to fitness, it's the perfect way to get active, get in shape, and get the body you want. A super lightweight system that is portable and very user friendly.

If you're a long time fitness fan, you know your body actually benefits from changes in your exercise routine - not lifting your maximum weight every time you workout! 

The Microgym allows you to do lower weight, higher speed workouts in between lifting the big stuff at the gym! Burn fat, mix up your routine, and keep your body guessing! 


A high strength, elasticated multi-strand cord provides the ultimate resistance for your work-out - switch easily between your muscle groups & the 3 resistance levels! 


To expand your workout, use the door bracket to attach onto any home door. The door bracket fits over an internal door with a thickness of between 35-50mm. No modification to the door is required!

The Microgym has been designed to make fitness accessible and to easily swap from one work out to the other with the quick connect lock.


* We aim to have our first batch of orders shipped by November 2019. If anything changes, early or late, we'll update you through our Kickstarter page.



The development team consists of 4 professional product designers who all work together at an ISO 9001 accredited design consultancy.

Outside of the Microgym, we design products for other businesses, from fitness and soccer training equipment, to electronic gadgets and medical devices. Between us we have 30+ years of design and engineering experience, taking products from initial idea and research all the way through to manufacture readiness, and working with factories across the globe to manufacture the final designs.

During the Microgym development we focused on offering tried and tested exercises that people are already familiar with. We haven’t re-invented the types of exercise, we have re-imagined what equipment is needed to do the exercises away from the gym.

We have built and tested 3 versions of the product over the last 2 years. At each point we invited ‘power users’ (PTs, hardcore gym goers) and novices to use the protoypes and tell us what worked and what needed improvement so we could perfect the design.

We are working with the sports science department of a University to do validation work, comparing the Microgym with other exercise devices for key exercise types. 

The product has also been tested and certified by an accredited product testing house.

  • 3 levels of resistance are approximately 10/15/20 Kg.

Risks and challenges

Our goal is to make fitness training more accessible. The best piece of exercise equipment is one that you actually use. With that in mind, we have spent 18 months and invested significant money developing and testing 5 design iterations so that the Microgym is very user friendly and simple to use.

Going into manufacture with a new product always has risks associated. As the development team consists of professional product designers and mechanical engineers, we have the knowledge and experience to minimise the risks. We have been talking with manufacturing partners for over 12 months prior to launching our crowdfunding campaign.

The Microgym requires significant investment in tooling before we can start to manufacture the product. That is why we are seeking backing from the Kickstarter community. With your help we can launch this new product and start to develop further products within the Wavex Fitness brand.

We also aim to develop a community of Microgym users. Motivation is super important in achieving your fitness goals. To keep people motivated we want to build a range of instructional videos that will show you specific workouts to target certain body parts or workouts that you can do in a certain time frame if you only have 10 minutes free time for instance.

One challenge of crowdfunding is the time difference between raising the money we need for manufacture, and shipping the product to our buyers. We will keep our community updated with regular news updates, via our website, social media, and email subscribers.
