The world’s first SMART complete portable trainer
« We wanted a product that would revolutionize training and empower people to reach their goals with no net time sacrifices, where you would be able to exercise more often and more quickly. We wanted a product that is compact and could do it all without any restrictions. Something anyone could use no matter what their fitness level be. That is why we have created mGym (patent pending). »
How it Works
All in one gym
- The trainer offers a range of resistance between 10lb and 85lb
- Easy to do a complete workout of all muscle groups
Light and compact
- The product weighs less than 20lb and can travel with you anywhere
- Can be stored under a bed or in a small closet
- mGym communicates with your cellphone or tablet and lets you control your training
- With mGym you can create your training by choosing preconfigured exercises or one of the available training programs
- Advanced features:
- Shadow training

Reduce training time
- The trainer will automatically adjust weight between each exercise. So you will never have to add plates or fight for dumbbells again. This alone can lead to a 30% reduction of your training time
- Say goodbye to the tracking sheets mGym do it all automatically
Concentric only training
- mGym is a concentric trainer which means that resistance is applied only when you pull the bar. No force is required in the rewind phase. Recent studies show that concentric only training increases the frequency, volume, and intensity of your workout, thus leading to faster results
Pierre-Luc and Alexandre were contemplating the idea of creating a company together and discussing what they could create that would revolutionize that field. After several meetings and explored ideas they finally found it! They would create a smart portable trainer. Having been a powerlifter athlete Pierre-Luc knew exactly what the product should do and how to create it. The mechanical and electronic design phase took over a year.
The team had to build every component from scratch. They also had to find suppliers of the components. The following months were used to contact suppliers and find every required part. They created three final prototypes that would be used to showcase the product and demonstrate its functionality. The comments from customers were fantastic and the team knew they had a winner. That is when they decided to turn to crowdfunding to gather the money required to create the injection mold and turn their prototype into a mass produced product.
