What We Love About the LifeSpan Fitness SP1000 StretchPartner:
Considering there are similar stretch machines on the market with less of the special added extras that the LifeSpan SP1000 offers, the price is definitely attractive.
The Little Things
It’s the little details of the LifeSpan SP1000 that makes it such a great machine to invest in. The accompanying DVD and flip chart provide comprehensive support for using the machine, ensuring anyone will be able to use the stretcher confidently and effectively. And the pivot system means the machine can accommodate different body shapes and sizes, ensuring any user can access the full range of stretches the machine offers.
What Isn’t So Great?
There is actually very little we don’t like about this model stretcher. The only real flaw we’ve found in comparison to other similar stretching machines is that the seat is a little less padded and comfortable. But this only a minor complaint, and as with most exercise equipment, you get used to the feel of the seat quickly.
The point has been raised that the stretches that can be done on a machine such as this, however versatile, can be completed on a mat if you are so motivated and inclined. It’s technically true, but with a trainers like the SP1000, you are able to complete a stretch routine in a more controlled and organized manner. Basically you’re more likely to get the job done, and this device is a great choice and investment for anyone aiming to take their flexibility regimen to the next level.
Final Word on the LifeSpan Fitness SP1000 Stretch Partner:
For the price, the LifeSpan Fitness SP1000 is a highly effective and high-quality piece of equipment. And it’s one that definitely should be near the top of your list to consider. It’s simple to use, and the detailed guide enables users to fully maximize the machine’s potential, improving your flexibility and range of movement quickly if used regularly and correctly.
