A-Grow-Bics – Body-lengthening Gym Class: Start-up Idea

Body-lengthening gym class reaches new heights

A-Grow-Bics, from UK fitness chain Gymbox, mixes Pilates, yoga, strengthening, speed work and a pain-free session on a rack to “stretch the body once muscles are warm”.

 

Developer Pierre Pozzuto says his classes induce a human growth hormone through sprint exercises, which “cause micro fractures in the bones that repair in a week, encouraging them to strengthen, remould and grow”.

 

Pozzuto says he grew two inches in a few months.

 

Inversion exercises, such as hanging by the feet, are also said to increase height “by inducing spinal decompression”.

 

While we’re not suggesting you head to a gym class that promises to lengthen the body, fitness concepts are becoming increasingly quirky as industry players look to create points of difference.

 

Perhaps you can draw inspiration from A-Grow-Bics and come up with your own idea.
