Company Summary

Current barbells have too many loose parts, make it difficult to change weights and they slow workout flow. We offer the next generation in free weight training. QUICK CLICK will be a sensation at health clubs, retail stores, physical therapy centers, hotels, universities, and on the web. QUICK CLICK includes barbells, dumbbells, kettlebells, medicine balls plus a variety of workouts on DVD, podcasts, applications, and interactive gaming systems
