Fitness for the Photographer

As a photographer I have had my share of work related injuries.  Despite it looking like an easy job, being on your feet for hours and being in compromising positions takes a toll on my body.  Even learning how to surf to capture pictures of top surfers.    One way I try to reduce stress and keep fit is my using an inversion table.underwater-photography

Inversion Tables and I have a very close relationship from years. It has made my life simpler and provided me joy and enthusiasm to enjoy each and every day of my life.Keeping my body fit had never been easy for me. Busy routing life of mine always had haunted me from the start of my career. Going to a gym center in the morning by keeping aside all other family works is a tough task. Even though I was able to make there for a day or two I was not able to maintain a consistency in my workouts. After I started using inversion tableI swayed goodbye to my gym sessions.You ask me Why would I? If you get an alternative that complements your lifestyle and as well provides the necessary workout then why wouldn’t you? Now I can do all the vital body exercises at my home. Whether it’s exercising my abs or strengthening my legs I can easily achieve through my Body Champ IT807. In addition, to inversion table I have a treadmill that which completesmy daily workout.

What makes Body Champ a real Champ?

The Body champ inversion table features a lightweight portable frame. With a maximum inversion angle of 90 degrees the inversion angle can be controlled with either the two position limiter bar or the adjustable strap underneath the table. You can loosen the strap all the way to experience a full inversion. Also experienced workers can try out extreme workouts like inverted situps and crunches. While using the limiter bar simply select the one of two levels and insert the bar through the hole. Then Lock it in place through a spring loaded clamp.  You can also remove the limiter bar completely to set up a custom angle using the adjustable strap. The body champ inversion table has a high range of 4 foot 7 to 6 foot 8 inches.  The seven position ankle rovers grip the ankles for extra support and safety. Body champ is easy to fold and light weight enough to carry or slide between sessions.

Benefits I found

It took me only 45 minutes for the first assembly. The steel frame of the equipment comes already assembled which cuts down the time or complexity. Additionally, body champ inversion tabledoes not require any type of extra tools to setup. So unlike other equipment you don’t have to run to a nearby hardware store and spend extra investments. The comfort level of this inversion table is splendid. Thanks to its quality craftsmanship that provides an impressive quality of backing and support. Also backing stays very sturdy and supporting at varying degrees of inversions. There are no problems of losing stability and imbalance. I love the ankle rollers which are puffed with thick foam at the center. I found it very comfortable. This avoids the problems of soaring when doing crunches and situps. Moreover, you are provided with ankle lock that keeps your legs intact avoiding the slippery while at extreme angles of inversion. One thing you need to keep mind is to make sure that the button at this lock is securely slid back into the notches before practicing. I sometimes found the lock was not fully inserted into the notch while using it.

Overall I found the Inversion table very useful. Not to forget you are provided with 1 year frame warranty and 90 days of parts replacement.
