Heart Rate Inc. has played an integral role in transforming the way people exercise with its 30 year history of innovations. Few other companies can claim as many fitness equipment firsts-including inventing total-body training-that have become expectations for exercise today. Plus, Heart Rate Inc. offers much more than its highly regarded vertical trainers, including a full line of heart rate monitors, the unprecedented VersaPulley resistance using patented MV2 technology and the now ExerVibe vertical climbers and steppers with Whole Body Vibration.

We are one of the few remaining cardio equipment manufacturers that continues to manufacture all of our products in the USA. We take great pride building and manufacturing all of our products: VersaClimbers, Heart Rate Monitors and VersaPulleys right here in the USA. Made in the USA for over 23 years.

Started in October 1978, Heart Rate Inc. had the foresight to know that heart rate could be a valuable tool to gauge the intensity of exercise-for beginning exercisers up to elite athletes. In 1980, the company completed the design and a functional prototype of a heart rate wristwatch and then was awarded an exclusive patent to further develop the capacitive electrode used in the NASA space program. This sensor was designed to acquire high quality ECG signals during space flights. Unfortunately, at that time, many wristwatch, medical and sports equipment companies were not convinced that heart rate monitoring promised to be a viable business, so they declined to provide funding. Faced with a lack of financial backing, Dick Charnitski, the president of Heart Rate Inc. and a mechanical engineer, then turned his attention to developing a total-body exercise machine. The birth of total-body exercise. The Birth of the

VersaClimber

Recognizing that no equipment had brought climbing indoors-as well as understanding the tremendous value of total-body exercise in comparison to workouts such as running and cycling-Charnitski created the first VersaClimber in his own garage, in 1981.

The result was the VersaClimber. Later heart rate monitoring was incorporated into the VersaClimber making it the first commercial exercise machine that used heart rate as a speedometer of exercise.

Nothing like it existed anywhere, and since its debut, VersaClimber has been the No. 1 total-body vertical trainer. A time line that spans nearly 30 years.

USA made PRODUCT 1

VersaClimber

VersaClimbing combines both lower and upper body exercise into one natural vertical climbing motion; It's like having two cardio machines for the price of one! Most cardio workouts require 40-55 minutes of going through the motions to burn off fat & calories; with little results if any to show. The VersaClimber has been proven to be more effective at melting away ugly fat than Treadmills, Ellipticals, Steppers, and Bikes. For 30 years, VersaClimber, with its patented vertical climbing design, has been providing the #1 cardio solution for getting rid of ugly fat and calories--while building a stronger healthier heart. VersaClimber is sold world wide and is recognized as the premier leader in total body cardio vertical training.

USA made PRODUCT 2

VersaPulley

What Is VersaPulley? The VersaPulley trains Reactive Strength it is the link to becoming strong and fast. Reactive Strength is defined as the ability to absorb force in one direction, and rapidly change and apply more force in the opposite direction (quickly switch from eccentric to concentric). VersaPulley accomplishes this using MV2 technology which is a patented rotating inertial flywheel for the resistance. The flywheel incorporates the strength and speed balance of reactive strength. The goal is to move the flywheel as fast as possible creating inertia, stop it and start again. Reactive strength serves as the link between traditional strength training and high speed skills like sprinting and throwing. Many athletes lose force in their movement due to the lack of Reactive Strength. A unique aspect of the VersaPulley is the lack of impact, as feet remain planted on the ground throughout the movements, placing less stress on joints and still providing a max inertial stretching.
