Inspire Fitness home gyms and functional trainers are known for being very smooth to operate, fitting well into the ceiling allowance for most homes, great warranties and having a well-regarded customer service department.

The Inspire FT1 Functional Trainer (AHF Sale Price $2,499) allows you to have complete freedom of movement in any direction or plane while performing weight resistance exercises. These unrestricted exercises are designed to move the way your body naturally moves. Many of the freestanding exercises incorporate core, secondary, and stabilizing muscles, giving you a more efficient workout.

The highly esteemed Fit Prof reported that Inspire Fitness continued its tradition of innovative strength equipment with this award-winning machine.
“The FT-1 Functional Trainer is a perfect example of their expertise,” the Fit Prof reported in a review. “A step up from their award winning PT-1, this fully adjustable dual stack functional trainer is ideal for those with ceiling height limitations. The perfect combination of quality and versatility.”

Functional Trainers have increasingly gained popularity as they are often less expensive than Home Gyms and take up less space. Functional Trainers have weight stacks on their base, too, but the main difference is in the cable systems that come with different shaped handles. They provide more options for working out and because the cable does not have to follow a fixed plane more sports specific routines can be implemented.

For instance, a golfer can hold the cable handle and simulate his or her swing. A baseball or softball player can grip the cable handle and mimic a throwing motion. There are hundreds of different movement possibilities for a Functional Trainer.

You can even incorporate an exercise ball into your workout, sitting on it and pulling the cable handle toward you at a variety of angles.
