The Core Pilot is a piece of core conditioning equipment that draws on the principles of Pilates and physiotherapy. Its central alloy beam, on which a sliding platform travels, is set against variable resistances and levels of integral stability. The platform's stability can be adjusted via a rotating disc mechanism, encouraging exercisers to engage their core musculature to maintain balance and stability. The design offers many user options, due to its quick release mechanisms on the foot bar, ropes, head rest and the platform itself.
The TRX Suspension Trainer allows a user to work in a suspended position against gravity using body weight as resistance. Basically an industrial-grade harness of soft nylon webbing, the TRX allows users to safely suspend their bodies in a variety of positions and to adjust resistance from five percent to 100 percent of their body weight. This variability of resistance levels allows users of all abilities to create a total-body workout. All that is required is an anchor point sturdy enough to support an individual's body weight, such as a door, crossbar or even a tree limb. Most of the exercises on the TRX Suspension Trainer require performing integrated, multi-joint exercises resulting in a comprehensive and effective workout.

This piece of equipment allows an exerciser to work out on three planes of movement at the same time for a new, effective and fun workout.
