A FULL GYM IN YOUR HANDS: Transform your Body at Home, Office & On the Go. Lose the Weights, Keep the Resistance.
Pledge Here

 The OYO Fitness team is back, with the higher resistance you asked for. 

The OYO NOVA Gym is the next evolution in our line of portable gyms. Based on feedback on our incredibly successful OYO Personal Gym (2nd highest funded fitness product in Kickstarter history), we’ve created this new heavy duty, higher resistance, portable gym that provides total body strength training, at home, office, or on the go.  The NOVA Gym provides up to 40lbs (18kg) of resistance in each hand in all planes of movement, yet only weights 2.5lbs (1.12Kg) and  folds up to go anywhere.

OYO Fitness founder Paul Francis invented the first resistive exercise device for space, the NASA iRED, incorporating his patented SpiraFlex technology. Before launch, NASA funded a 16 week study comparing SpiraFlex to free-weights. The study found that the SpiraFlex group had the same improvements in strength and muscular growth (hypertrophy) as the free-weight group. For 10 years over 50 crew members on the International Space Station have kept in shape using our SpiraFlex technology. 

The OYO Nova Gym uses SpiraFlex resistance, which feels smooth and linear like free-weights, without the weight or momentum. 

You asked for more resistance – we’ve delivered with 60% more than our original OYO Personal Gym. 

SpiraFlex FlexPacks, rated at 10lbs (4.5kg) each, snap on to provide up to 40lbs (18kg)of total resistance in each hand, yet the entire unit only weighs 2.5lbs (1.1kg) and folds up to fit in your bag or carry-on. 

Nylon-coated stainless steel cables designed to be durable under high resistance loads.

T-Handle grips with steel inserts provide greater extension than the OYO Personal Gym and are over-molded with “Good Grip” material to handle the higher resistance levels. 

The Nova Gym is the only fitness device that provides abduction and adduction during a single exercise movement, building a balanced in less time. Also, as it does not require the vertical of gravity, you can perform exercises in all planes of movement, without extra equipment like a bench.  

Skip the health club round-trips and fees. You can duplicate the same exercises and results — where you are right now!

What makes the NOVA Gym better than cable machines, free-weights, or resistance bands?

Plate loaded cable machines take up a huge footprint in your home, or you have to go to the health club to use them. Free-weights work great, but can take up a lot of space and are heavy and cumbersome, and trying to control momentum can lead to joint issues. Resistance bands produce progressive resistance (like rubber bands) and are limited in movements.

Build and sculpt your chest, back, arms, core and legs.

Fitness Director Nick Bolton has developed over a 100 exercise and 50 workout videos, so you’ll never get bored. Here’s the Top 10 Exercises for all muscle groups:  

Exercises are available on OYOfitness.com and the OYO Fitness YouTube channel. Download from OYO Fitness Vimeo channel.

All NOVA Gym backers will get free access to our downloadable 28 Day Beginner Program, 30 Day Standard Program, and our flagship OYO 10 Week Challenge Program  where participants lost an average of 17lbs. Free unlimited access to our online library of over 100 exercise and 50 workout videos.

OYO Fitness founder Paul Francis first invented SpiraFlex resistance technology for the NASA mission critical International Space Station program, to counteract astronaut bone and muscle loss caused by long term zero gravity. A NASA 16 week ground study proved SpiraFlex provided the same benefits as free-weights. During almost 10 years, over 50 Space Station crew members have kept in shape with the SpiraFlex powered iRED invented by Francis.

Next, he licensed SpiraFlex technology to Nautilus Inc. and helped developed the Bowflex Revolution home gym, one of the best-selling home gyms of all time.

Francis founded OYO Fitness to incorporate SpiraFlex technology into fitness solutions for where you are right now – providing the same benefits as weights, without the weight. The company’s first product was the second most funded fitness product at that time in Kickstarter history and over 65,000 units have been produced.

The company’s deep pipeline of new products will continue to deliver health and fitness solutions people can benefit from, at their convenience, wherever they may be. With your help, OYO Fitness has now become one of the fastest growing brands in the health and fitness industry.
