that means the best quality
This year we have introduced to our offer a new generation of bikes and elliptical bikes. Their braking system is controlled by electromagnet. This type of equipment has higher level of technological development.
In traditional bikes and elliptical bikes the resistance is reached by a fraction of the flywheel. In magnetic bikes and elliptical bikes it is achieved by changing the intensity of magnetic field created by electromagnet. The resistance force is set electronically by a microprocessor. It is controlled by electric motor. It gives the possibility to set its value with great precision.
The greatest advantage if this system is bigger fluidity of changing the resistance level. Reducing and increasing its scale, as well as the perception of above mentioned, occur in short period of time.
And that’s not all! Magnetic bikes and elliptical bikes have a possibility to set higher level of resistance than the models with mechanical technology. It allows to offer bigger number of training programs and functions.
At the same time the device is very silent so the training don’t disturb the people that are around you.
When choosing the magnetic equipment we receive a high-tech device that offers a wide range of exercises. Each user can personalize it according to their preferences or level of professionalism.

Be fit – exercise with a roller!26.08.2016
Foam rollers FS104, FS107, FS109 are our novelty items that complement the already rich selection of rollers in the HMS product line – a collection of equipment and accessories designed for a complete workout, therapy and rehabilitation.
Every item has been made of high quality materials, which guarantees comfort of use. EVA foam is abrasion-resistant and does not absorb moisture, making the product very easy to keep clean.
The roller will not only help improve the physical condition, but will also tone the body effectively. Due to its massage function it will be an excellent choice for those wanting to enhance blood circulation.
A workout with a roller activates and strengthens postural muscles, which in effect improves the overall endurance and mildly corrects postural faults. The exercises will enhance your joint mobility, flexibility and agility.
Foam rollers are increasing in popularity as they help eliminate hardening of connective tissue. Consequently, muscle tension is reduced allowing full fascial relaxation and thus creating optimal conditions for an effective regeneration process.
Advancing of these regeneration processes whilst maintaining maximum effectiveness translates directly into your results. It is in fact a domino effect, as you will be able to develop faster, increase your endurance and prepare yourself for more demanding workouts.

Top quality weight lifting bars05.02.2016
The Olympic bar GO680 HMS is made of hardened chrome steel. It is a perfect combination of high durability with an ideal level of flexibility. It is fitted with a precisely knurled, firm and comfortable grip, and comes with two plastic collars.
The barbell allows for a maximum load of 680 kg. The shaft with a 28 mm diameter offers high durability without any loss of comfort for the user. The process of chrome plating ensures that the bar will maintain its original appearance over a very long period of time and is the best method of rust prevention.
GO680 HMS is fitted with 8 needle bearings in order to provide smooth rotation of sleeves. Despite their moderate diameter, needle bearings provide a high level of stiffness and dynamic capacity. The construction of the bar ensures that the tension between its moving parts is eliminated, which in consequence results in an increased lifespan of bearings.
As a high quality piece, the bar will be a good investment for many years.
