Why Gorilla Bow Home Gym?

Gorilla Bow's creative idea utilizing ancient bow shape aluminum piece adds a lot of variety to a simple resistance band workout.

While the resistance band alone is good enough as a portable workout device, this addition of metal pieces suddenly multiplies the variety of workouts. (Similarly, door anchors can add variety too.)

Gorilla Bow is not only good for a strength exercise but also good for HIIT(High-Intensity Interval Training) without taking up too much space.

Gorilla Bow Travel

The only drawback of the original Gorilla Bow is that the length of the bow itself. Of course, it is portable because the bow itself is made of light-weight aluminum.
But it is somewhat hard to travel with it because of the bow's length. To overcome this drawback, Gorilla Fitness released the 'travel' version.

The Travel Gorilla Bow can be divided into three pieces, so one can say this is truly fit for travel. But that does not hurt the maximum capacity of the bow.
The travel version's maximum capacity is 350 lbs, whereas the original bow's maximum capacity is 300 lbs. The only cons of the travel version are that it is more expensive than the original version.

But if you travel a lot or space-saving is an important factor for you, Travel Gorilla Bow is definitely the one we recommend.
