Which FITSWORD® should you buy? To answer this question, first of all think about which is your main field of application.
FITSWORD® Modular (1,2 to 2,7 kg - 2,7 to 6 lbs):
Here you have to think in a objective way to your body structure: even if you think that up to 2.5 kg (5,5 lbs) is not much, when you put this kind of weight in motion with dynamic movements (or slow and controlled), the FITSWORD® will feel heavy after a couple of minutes for the average user. You can have this feeling by making a test at home with a dumbbell. Wield it as a sword and mimic cuts and thrusts at different angles, with the arms extended. Make some repetitions to feel the muscles work.
if you can’t wield this weight with good posture, then the FITSWORD® Modular is more than enough for you.
if this weight range is too easy, you should think about ordering the FITSWORD® Modular PRO.
FITSWORD® Modular PRO (1,5 to 4 kg - 3,3 to 8.9 lbs):
This weight range is good for all athletes with a good or excellent physical preparation, and for all the users that want a tool that will guarantee overtime a progressive training on all sport applications (fitness, cardio, dexterity, rehab, endurance, strength, combat).
This is the perfect tool also for the personal trainer, to be used with the beginner and with the advanced athlete (given the wider weight range).
If you want to train with maximum intensity, the FITSWORD® Modular Pro is the right choice for you.
Don't forget that training with the right weight allows you:
And in any case don't be afraid to do the wrong choice, as in the near future we will release the CONVERSION KITS, to transform the FITSWORD Boffer into a Modular, and the Modular Pro into the Boffer.
The FITSWORD® Modular Pro comes with 12 Weight Plates:
- 6 Metal Plates: cnc machined from solid block of Stainless Steel, with a weight of 0.5 kg (1,1 lb) each.
- 6 Black Plates: cnc machined from solid block of Delrin, with a weight of 100 grams (0,2 lb) each.
Combine the Metal and Black Plates in 7 different ways to get the weight that you better handle for your task, from 1,5 to 4 kg (3,3 to 8,9 lbs).
In function of your skills, your strength and kind of training that you want to do (fitness, cardio, dexterity, rehab, strength, combat), you setup your FITSWORD®, with the weight that you need.
Weight Fine Tuning: the wide number and choice of weight plates, allows the most progressive load increase.
If you want to train with maximum intensity, this FITSWORD® model is the right choice for you.
The FITSWORD® Modular offers:
- Boffer functionality (with the lightest setup of 1,2 kg - 2,7 lbs)
- Strength and Endurance training: with a weight range that reaches 2.7 kg - 6 lbs.
When you put this kind of weight in motion with dynamic movements, the FITSWORD will feel heavy after few repetitions for the average user.
This FITSWORD comes with 2 Black Plates (CNC Machined in Delrin), 2 Metal Plates and 1 Inner Metal Bar (CNC Machined from solid block of Stainless Steel).
Combine the Metal and Black Plates in 4 different ways to get the weight that you better handle for your task, from 1,2 to 2,7 kg (2,7 to 6 lbs).
The FITSWORD® Boffer Pro weighs 1,2 kg (2,7 lbs) as it is conceived for combat purposes, and it's balanced as a normal sword (Center of Gravity along the blade).
To offer the chance of training with an heavier sword, we made an inner Stainless Steel Bar that fits the inside of the Handle / Hilt. This extra weight allows to lower the Center of Gravity (without increasing the kinetic strike energy).
This weight range is perfect (apart from combat purposes) also for fitness and sport conditioning for all the people with limited strength that want to improve their performance (or for rehab).
