The Halo Trainer was invented nearly 3 years ago by Bryce Taylor, a practicing physical therapist in Indianapolis. In the process of creating new and innovative back and shoulder stabilization exercises with the stability ball and BOSU, he realized that these elastic surfaces were difficult to control and were not ergonomic. Out of this realization, the Halo Trainer was born. This friction-fitting ergonomic handlebar apparatus allows the exerciser to control the level of stability while using a stability ball, BOSU, or TRX. Hundreds of exercises have been classified into levels of difficulty to make it easy for personal trainer and exercise enthusiast. In fact, we have found the Halo Training System to be very effective as a group fitness class or as a fun addition to boot camp classes.
Unfortunately, it is very common to hear “core” used interchangeably with “abs”. Although the abdominals are a large contributor to the core, there are many more muscles that compose the core— 29 to be exact. Think of the core as a cylinder around your spine. A cylinder is a three dimensional shape with top, bottom, and contoured sides, front, and back. All these muscles have a role to protect, stabilize, or move your spine for safe and efficient movement. The Halo Trainer encompasses this very approach to training. Our exercises will engage your core while strengthening your shoulders, hips, knees, etc. Why not save time on your workouts by efficiently incorporating core strengthening into your workouts? This is what the Halo Effect is all about.
