(Santa Monica, CA – 1, June 2022) Aktiv Solutions is proud to announce the North American launch of RECOIL®, a next generation suspended training device designed for commercial facilities and premium home gym usage alike.

RECOIL was invented by Robert Bowles and Mark Gibbons. Robert, a former British Forces Mechanic living in Hong Kong became passionate about increasing the functionality and operation of traditional nylon training straps. “Suspended exercise movements offer unique and highly efficient training advantages complementing most every training program,” said Bowles. “We created RECOIL to accommodate a greater range of users, and to support facility operators by improving the appearance, life-span, and dependability of their critical gear.”

Suspended Training modalities remain at or near the height of popularity of all functional exercise programs performed in the gym or at home.  The versatility of RECOIL decreases the learning curve for functional training while significantly increasing the range of user accommodation from beginner to elite athlete.

A patented frictionless braking system and the device’s capability to “recoil” when not in use are just some of its key features.  Perhaps what makes RECOIL most unique is its ability to instantly level the training straps together, from decent to ascent, each and every use.  As such, RECOIL makes the adjustment of suspended training straps fast and fun and a breeze to keep up with fast-paced Hiit sessions or as part of any strength circuit or routine.

“We’re thrilled to share with clients this small but mighty product capable of improving both operator and user experiences during training” said Joseph Harre, Director of Performance & Key Accounts for Aktiv. “It’s our job to demonstrate greater ingenuity and to optimize functionality for our clients across a wide array of dynamic training-based solutions. RECOIL certainly hits the mark”.

RECOIL Key Features Include:

  • HEAD TO TOE ADJUSTMENT: RECOIL has the largest adjustment range on the market. Straps adjust all the way from head to toe and everywhere in between.
  • PUSH BUTTON ACTIVATION: With just a touch of a button, RECOIL extends quickly to accommodate any user, any exercise, and everywhere you want to train.
  • PREMIUM GRIPS & HOUSING: Comfortable, hygienic, and built to last, Recoils patented design is compact and efficient to use. Workout indoors or outside with the optional lashing strap.
