Progressive Stabilization System
The Bravo functional trainer and Bravo Press feature the patent pending Progressive Stabilization system, which is a pad that adjusts for height and horizontal position. The system offers maximum support—like selectorized equipment—or free standing, similar to most functional trainers. The Bravo Pull also offers the technology with height adjustment. Simply put, Progressive Stabilization gives users a greater variety of training options than other cable machines.
As far as results are concerned, Progressive Stabilization delivers what users want: faster, safer strength. Compared to other free-standing machines, the system offers:
- a 212% increase in load capacity,
- 184% increase in core activation,
- and a 38% greater strength gain*.
Advanced Cable Adjustment
The Bravo functional trainer includes the Advanced Cable Adjustment system, which lets users control the height and width between the cables’ origin. This means the direction of resistance can be completely controlled. Welcome to a new level of versatility and almost endless training possibilities.
Free Start Technology
The Bravo Lift features Free Start technology, which allows users to select the desired starting height and to get to it with minimal load, thus getting into the correct start position before the weight is engaged.
Variable Grip Chinup Bar
The integrated chinup bar's multiple grip options targets different movements and muscles.
Grips, straps, and bars are available to produce an almost unlimited array of exercises and functional applications.
Dual Weight Stack
Two weight stacks allow for fully independent motion and asymmetrical loads for single users, or individual stations for two users.

Designed specifically for use with the Bravo Functional Training series to provide even greater training possibilities, the Utility Bench allows users to perform a variety of movements from the seated position either with or without the Progressive Stabilization pad.
