We've got another review for you- this time Travis Jones, author of the The Movement Review blog! Travis is a Physical Therapist student and a CrossFit certified trainer. We love his in-depth review for many reasons, but his perspective on using it for physical therapy and rehab is especially useful. You can read his XPO Trainer review on his blog here. And while you're there, check out his "WOD Wednesdays" posts for a plethora of workout ideas!
Here are a few of our favorite quotes from the review:
"Instead of pushing against a static object such as a wall, or pushing against a traditional sled that can quickly slide away and lead to further injury, the XPO Trainer provides a very low rolling resistance at low speeds with an immediate and automatic increase in resistance that will provide an opportunity for the user to regain equilibrium safely."
"The standard sled push is what the XPO does best, and is by far my top ranked piece of equipment for the movement."
"Nothing is more functional than feet on the ground training your body in real world, not simulated, athletic movements. Increase speed, acceleration, and explosive power on the surface you play on."
Thanks for the awesome review, Travis!
