Flywheel training for Personal Trainers

As a Personal Trainer, you want a mobile training device that is easy to take with you, but still enables you to train heavily? Discover flywheel training!

Mobile flywheel device for Personal Trainers

As a Personal Trainer you want to be able to easily move your training setup. Since flywheel training does not rely on gravity, our Kynett products are lightweight and easy to carry. For example, the Kynett ONE comes in a small compact case and weighs only 5 kg.

This does not mean that you can only train lightly. Research shows, that athletes could produce 900 watts during a flywheel squat. That is equivalent to squatting over 90 kg at a speed of 1 m/s. However, with the same flywheel device, less well-trained athletes produced 100 watts. This is equivalent to squatting 10 kg at a speed of 1 m/s. This again shows that the flywheel device will adapt to how strong the user – or in this case the muscle group – is. The intensity of each movement depends on the amount of force you need and the speed at which you perform the movement. In other words, people with different sports levels can get started with the same device. Ideal during your group bootcamp!

    What is flywheel training?

    Flywheel training is not based on gravity, but on flywheel technology. The idea can be compared to a yo-yo: you pull the cord and the yo-yo (flywheel) starts to spin. Once the cord is fully unwind, the yo-yo will automatically rewind itself.

    The resistance you experience is not due to gravity, but due to inertia, also known as rotational energy or angular kinetic energy. The harder you pull, the faster the flywheel will spin and the more inertia energy will be created. You will need a lot of force to then slow the flywheel down.

    If you pull hard on the cord by applying a lot of force and making a lot of speed, you will also have more difficulty in decelerating the flywheel. This way you determine the intensity yourself, both when pulling and decelerating!

    Of course, the flywheel (the yo-yo) itself also partly determines how hard the exercise is. For example, it will be more difficult to accelerate and decelerate a thick heavy flywheel. Nevertheless, practice shows that both beginners and experienced athletes can train with one and the same flywheel. Simply because they determine the intensity themselves.
