It is a heavy duty back stretcher with robust and stable construction of a steel frame. The good quality, double layered padding makes it durable enough for use at your home gym and light commercial- fitness studios. It has a 90-degree motion range on this back stretcher and seems to be a great flexibility trainer if you need to warm up before your work out, improve mobility and achieve proper back posture.
You can adjust the handle to 4 positions and you’ll feel comfortable during your back and stretches, holding the soft padded grips. By changing the position of your hands on the handle, you’ll be targeting different parts of your legs or back and you can also stretch your hamstrings, glutes, inner thighs, upper back, quads, shoulders, groins and more. You’re recommended to use it before and after your workout for warming up and cooling down and to keep your motion range and flexibility.
It comes with the security wrist straps that will hold you when you’re stretching as far and as much as you can without losing your balance or falling back. The seat pivots 90 degrees for deep stretches and this decent spine and lower back stretcher will help with the pain relief on your hips, legs and back. The seat swivels 90 degrees, front to back but it is not adjustable for height. It will help target different muscles of your body and enhance the performance at the gym or outdoors and avoid potential injuries during your workout.
Valor Fitness CA-32 weighs 70 pounds and measures 50 x 26 x 37 inches and will not take up too much space in your home gym. It doesn’t need to be bolted or secured to the floor, feels sturdy and durable and you can move it around as you wish. It doesn’t come with the transportation wheels underneath but will glide easily on different surfaces. The seat goes all the way back without any resistance and you can also sit down without putting on the wrist straps. And you will feel comfortable rocking back at the lowest level with your straps on.
If you don’t get the instructions for this Valor Stretcher, please search for videos on Youtube for Precor Stretch Trainer which costs much more. These two machines offer basically the same stretches and almost the same build quality. It is pretty easy to assemble by two people with the straightforward instructions and tools included in the package. But the box it comes in is quite heavy and you may need a bit of help with that. You may even find it to be very similar to the one you may be using at your gym. The price is much lower- about the half of the other brands and is reported to be as good. We are more than happy to recommend it, especially at the current price.
