Body Champ’s inversion table will meet the need of any consumer looking for a highly dependable and effective equipment. It is indeed a great investment. Before you make the purchase, here are some of the basic and important components of the table that you should know.

ASSEMBLY

In most cases, large equipment are broken up into smaller parts for shipping. The assembly process may seem be a daunting task for most people but with the Body Champ IT8070 Inversion Table, there is absolutely no reason to fear.

This particular inversion table is surprisingly easy to assemble and the instructions are quite clear. Though assembly tools come with the table you might have to visit your local hardware store and purchase your own tools.

The assembly time may take an hour or two to complete and you’re good to go. The table weighs approximately 50lbs and measures 55.5 x 29.5 x 57.88 (L x W x H). Finding the ideal space to keep the table may be the only hurdle you’ll ever encounter.

BUILD

The Body Champ IT8070 Inversion Table is pleasantly one of the most lightweight equipment of its kind and makes it easy to move around and transport. It can take a maximum weight of 250lbs and a maximum height of 6”4’. The whole build and frame of the table is quite sturdy and solid, thus minimizing shakes and wobbles.

This table is highly recommended for people of medium weight and average build to maximize positive performance and experience. Although there are bulkier inversion tables available, they are more expensive compared to the Body Champ Inversion Table.

On top of its strong build and lightweight qualities, it is also built with highly comfortable padding. This component is extremely vital since inversion tables are commonly used for those who have chronic back problems. The padding is perfectly firm, thus minimizing muscle strain especially during prolonged exercises.

ADJUSTABILITY

The Body Champ IT8070 Inversion Table is easily adjustable and is perfect for family use. It has an adjustable footing and an ankle locking system. The adjustment process takes approximately 10 minutes to do. It is built with a spring-loaded adjustment setting that allows you to change the table size according to your preference. It is important that the safety strap is worn especially when adjusting the table for inversion.

INVERSION PROCESS

The Body Champ Inversion Table is perfectly safe to use even for beginners. The table is built with a safety rod that automatically locks into place once a certain level is reached. Its handlebars and safety straps allow you to have full control over the inversion process without problems.

The tables U-shaped handrails are used to help you get back to your starting position. After a few tries, you’ll find yourself enjoying the equipment as you slowly and surely get the hang of it.

If it is your first time, we recommend that you use the tether strap. The strap allows you to adjust the degrees of incline. The shorter the strap, the less inclined you will be. The strap greatly aids you to comfortably transition you to a full incline, thus relieving as much tension and stress in the back as possible.

ANKLE SUPPORT

The Body Champ Inversion Table does not come with ratchet locking ankle clamps. These were left out to make the inversion table more inexpensive. Instead, it comes with four foam rollers with added padding for you to anchor your ankles and avoid unnecessary strain.

These ankle rollers are surprisingly comfy in general. The experience only varied from person to person. Those who reported feelings of discomfort were those who had previous ankle injuries or surgeries. The person’s weight is also a significant factor when it comes to how comfortable the experience is using the ankle rollers.

The safety strap that comes with the table ensures that you whole body is comfortably locked in place. If you do not have any history of ankle injuries and are well within the recommended weight limit, then the padded ankle rollers will keep you secure without hurting your ankles.

SAFETY

As discussed, the Body Champ IT8070 comes with a safety strap that ensures that you do not fall off and keeps you comfortably locked in place. Its easy-to-adjust handlebars  accommodate all sizes within the specified height limit and the tether strap aids you in adjusting the angle of inclination.

The Body Champ Inversion Table is ideal for any member of the family as long as you do not exceed the height and weight recommendations. We highly recommend that children should have adult supervision when using the inversion table to make sure that they use the equipment safely and properly.

STORAGE

As previously mentioned, the inversion table does take up some space and can be a bit of a challenge to store when not in use. With its shape, the table does allow some items to be stored underneath it or on top of it.
