Cheatcode: How to Train like an Elite Level Athlete
People often have the misconception that athletic workout routines are irreplicable and near impossible to follow. While this might have been somewhat true in the past, modern technological developments in training equipment have made it possible to deliver elite performance results to home users.
Whilst traditional weight training once was the conventional route for professional coaches to prepare their athletes for competition, Exerfly has taken the fitness world by storm and established itself as an essential piece of equipment for both in-season and off-season training. Exerfly creates equipment, tried and tested by elite sports teams, that has transformed the lives of home users around the world. With Exerfly, users train Olympic fitness routines for the fraction of the price of an annual gym membership, and the results are why we’ve been endorsed by strength and conditioning coaches, Olympians and physiotherapists around the world.
So how does it work?
To put it simply, flywheel training is great for your muscles. We’ve got a great article explaining exactly what flywheel training is and why it’s better than traditional weights for elite level athletes and home users alike which you can read up on here. Essentially, research points to flywheel training as being an established effective method for improving hypertrophy (the increase and growth of muscle) and endurance(the ability to withstand a lot of physical stamina). This is because with Exerfly, users feel a constant resistance in both the pull and return movement of the workout, created by the flywheel, allowing for the continuous load and stimulation of the muscles in both the concentric and eccentric phase.
Athletes focus on eccentric training because it has been regularly cited as playing a strong role in injury prevention, and is becoming pivotal in rehabilitation and physiotherapy, with evidence supporting its use in the treatment of tendinopathies, muscle strains and ACL injuries. Exerfly are industry leaders in eccentric training because of its revolutionary eccentric overloading technology which allows users to boost the eccentric part of the movement, leading to faster muscle adaptations in trained athletes, and better suiting them for fast explosive movements. To summarize, you set the pace of the flywheel, and it doubles down on the concentric and eccentric phase of the movement to make sure that it is stimulating your muscles as much as possible, achieving unparalleled results.
But I’m not a professional athlete so it might be dangerous for me
Not at all. Exerfly home users are able to complete elite level workouts with minimized risk of injury compared to traditional weights because the resistance is determined by their output. People are using Exerfly because it’s a cheat code for time under tension. Other resistance bands cannot imitate time under tension nor quantify the results. The flywheel adapts to your force and your fatigue, unlike weights, which are victims to the force of gravity. Think about the day after a full-on workout with weights, your muscles are really sore right? And that soreness is especially excruciating if your form isn't perfect. Conventional weight training can be intimidating, difficult and even dangerous for non-professionals because of the technicalities of it. The heaviest Exerfly flywheel is 5kgs but can produce up to 100kgs of resistance (without motorised technology), and is solely determined by how hard you want to workout while it moves at your set pace. Keep that in mind next time you try to bench or squat 100kgs at the gym!
But it’s cheaper and more convenient for me to stay at the gym.
Is it though? Even when disregarding how much a gym membership costs in the long run, take into account how much time goes into waking up early in the mornings to get to the gym before work or how tiring it is to fit in a workout after a full day of work. And do not forget to add transportation fees to that calculation too. It all adds up, and the energy put into actually commuting to and from the gym is often a leading factor that demotivates individuals and sets them back in their performance. With Exerfly equipment, no energy or time resources are drained from travelling, and these resources can be allocated towards completing a comprehensive workout that your body will thank you for later.

Chris Chase Director of Performance for Memphis Grizzlies
“ The versatility of the Exerfly Platform is unmatched by any other piece of flywheel equipment on the market. Firstly, being able to use 1 or 2 straps is a huge advantage. Unlike other equipment with 1 strap , the Platform can be better set up for things like deadlifts with 2 separate handles or a shoulders elevated hip bridge with a straight bar. This has allowed us to utilize the flywheel stress with most of our exercises.”
Tom Whittaker Performance Director and Head Coach at Para Powerlifting and British Weight Lifting
“Having used Exerfly equipment for several months I have been delighted with the quality and functionality across able bodied and disabled groups. We have used Exerfly primarily to support muscle mass development in addition to traditional free weight modalities where muscle length and passive muscle element adaptations have been desirable for well rounded muscle volume change.”
Andre Mattson** Head Performance Coach for the Santa Cruz Warriors, Former Strength & Conditioning Coach for the Charlotte Hornets and the New York Knicks, Former Coach at Velocity Sports Performance
“Exerfly's eccentric motor is a game changer. When my athletes initially use it, they feel so engaged, they feel drastic differences. Where else in the weight room are you able to reach these eccentric forces at these velocities? I can use free weights, I can use cables, but I cannot reciprocate that environment that you create in the sport. Nothing mimics sport directly like Exerfly can.”
