Benefits of Flywheel Training with Exerfly

For so long, we have relied on conventional resistance training based on gravity to improve our strength and athletic ability. Whilst many domains of strength training have been explored over the years, a new training method has become increasingly prominent in the athletic arena in recent years - Flywheel training.


Flywheel training is unique in the fact that it utilizes kinetic energy transferred to a flywheel, facilitating eccentric overload and constant resistance throughout the entire range of a movement. Exerfly harnesses Flywheel training to focus on eccentric muscle training. Eccentric movement occurs when a muscle lengthens whilst producing force, with resistance in the eccentric phase being almost impossible to stimulate with traditional weights. At Exerfly, our goal is to help athletes perform at their peak - that’s why we created a safer, reliable, and more effective training model.


What are the results of flywheel training?
Many sporting experts favour eccentric training as it can stimulate increases in muscle size and strength more effectively than movements with traditional gym equipment. A study investigating flywheel training found that over a 4-week period, participants increased their squatting power by 51% and saw an average quadriceps muscle gain of 8.6%.

How can Exerfly improve Lower body strength & performance?

What is currently happening in the flywheel training scene?
In our post-Covid climate, many gyms have become obsolete or unreliable, so the need for new, dependable training methods is clear. For many athletes, coaches, and personal trainers, the ability to access an entire gym on a small or even portable footprint allows them to continue training their athletes and clients to the best of their ability.

The benefits of exercise on our overall mental and physical health are significant, contributing to improvements in blood pressure, mental clarity, and joint health.

Why Exerfly?
The Exerfly provides a dependable all-in-one training solution. Exerfly equipment can simulate a diverse range of exercises from heavy strength-based training to rehabilitation. Exerfly equipment is easy to store, transport, and travel with. But most importantly, Exerfly generates incredible, quantifiable results, as shown by our huge range of global clients, including:

  • The All Blacks
  • The LA Dodgers
  • Wolverhampton Wanderers
  • High-Performance Sport NZ
  • Australia/Great Britain/Canada Olympics
  • Multiple Gold-Medallist Olympians worldwide
  • ...and many, many more!


These athletes use Exerfly as a reliable and challenging method of training, ensuring their performance and musculoskeletal integrity is optimized. It’s difficult for traditional gym equipment to tick all the boxes. It’s not often that exercise can be safe, effective, and accessible when using one piece of core machinery in a small space. This is why Exerfly has completely re-imagined the way we train and will continue to train for the future. Your entire gym, within one small footprint.
