Easy to Move and Store

During the setting up process, you’ll realize that the Ironman Gravity 1000 Inversion Table is not very heavy; it weighs just 46lbs. Even though the product is fairly lightweight, its tubular steel frame is well-built and sturdy.

The makers claim that Gravity 1000 can withstand a maximum weight of 300lbs. But, it’s our opinion that if you’re around the 300lbs limit, you should look for an advanced model.

The backrest is covered with nylon; it’s comfortable, but not as well as the foam padded high-end models.

Ankle Support

The ankle support does its job very well; it holds the feet in place while you suspend upside-down. Users need not worry about the quality and safety of the ankle support. The Ironman brand is famous for producing quality inversion tables; you can trust them blindly.

The comfort level of ankle support depends on the user’s size, height, and weight. Large and heavy users might feel the ankle support to be slightly tighter and less comfortable. Not everyone is comfortable having an ankle support pressing on their feet. You can experiment to find the comfort zone. Try adding extra padding by using a towel, wearing socks, etc.

First-time users can have someone to help fix the ankle support. Releasing the support is easy. All you’ve to do is to pull the pin to release the ankle support.

How to Use the Ironman Gravity 1000 Inversion Table

To begin inversion, fasten the ankle support, and then stretch the arms above the head to begin the movement. After the workout, to straighten up, bring the hands on the side, use the side handles to get back to the natural position.

The whole purpose of the inversion table is to relieve back pain and prevent it from affecting you again. Sometimes, users might trigger pain when they try to sit up or bend the back to right the table. The easy to use handles in Ironman Gravity 1000 Inversion Table allows the users to get back to the upright position without straining their back.
