The Phlex360 was designed and created by fitness expert Derrick Johnson to provide a total body resistance and cardiovascular workout without the use of machines or weights. This fitness solution was inspired by the growing number of Americans classified as overweight and obese. Through his studies and review of statistics, Mr. Johnson realized that most Americans don't have the time or motivation for gyms.
His vision was to create a product that would help reduce the rate of obesity in the U.S. and improve fitness outcomes using resistance and natural body movement. PHLEX360 prototypes were tested and validated at MIT’s Center for Sports Innovation who determined, “...this product now has the potential to increase the efficiency at which people exercise, provide alternatives to existing workouts, and encourage a healthy lifestyle.”
