**Exciting News** I pitched my PowerPress invention to the Dragon's Den in Toronto recently. Follow my journey and try out the PowerPress at my Ottawa private gym - Studio Elite!

    PowerPress™ was developed by Muscle Engineering a collaboration between Ottawa inventor, Guy Murray and Design 1st, a highly innovative product design and engineering company.

    As a new, leading edge fitness technology, PowerPress’ patent-pending BioKinetic Controller is a bio-mechanically engineered double-rack-and-pinion innovation that guarantees perfectly balanced, ergonomic motion for the safest, most effective and complete workout possible.

    PowerPress transforms the straight up-and-down action of the barbell press into a natural arc that safely maximizes loading of the target muscle groups. Well-known as a personal trainer, Guy has worked with several champion body builders, power lifters and strongman competitors as well as Hollywood celebrities, such as Glenn Close and Jeremy Irons.

    PowerPress was conceived out of Guy’s frustration as he watched his clients perform risky barbell and dumbbell exercises that could not work the entire group of chest and shoulder muscles in an intense yet, balanced and safe manner. For more information call (613) 277-3062.

    PowerPress enables commercial fitness clubs and institutions to easily upgrade their existing equipment, providing their members with a fun, new upper body work-out experience that is safer and more effective. PowerPress easily installs on most standard and Olympic bars in less than two minutes, and it boosts the effectiveness and safety of all types of presses: flat bench, incline bench, and shoulder presses. It is compatible with Smith machines, and a lighter Body-Pump version will be available soon.
    Trainers will appreciate the foolproof design of PowerPress when introducing it to their clients. PowerPress is extremely easy-to-use because the BioKinetic Controller guarantees balanced hand motion and much lighter weights can be safely used while obtaining maximum training effect.
  • competitive weightlifters and powerlifters
  • strongman competitors bodybuilders
  • amateur and professional athletes
  • general weight training
  • body pump
  • more complete and effective chest workout, much safer than heavy barbell and dumbbell exercises
  • works the entire pec intensely, including the inner pec insertions that are difficult to work with other exercises – “full pec pump”
  • works the upper and inner chest that is the weak spot of most body builders
  • intense workout with much less weight – someone who incline presses 400+ lbs gets an intense full pec workout using less than 150 lbs
  • everything is focused on loading the muscle rather than lifting the weight – brings chest training to the next level
  • much less stress placed on shoulder joints or front deltoids
  • you feel the difference within a couple of reps
    PowerPress has undergone a variety of testing and trials throughout the product development process. During its prototyping phase, PowerPress was tested by many target users including; Strongmen, Body Builders and weight training professionals. Their feedback resulted in tweaks to the design, look and feel of the PowerPress.
    In the fall 2012, the PowerPress prototype was launched for intensive testing at the 100% Raw National Bench Pressevent, where documented footage of hands-on trials of the PowerPress was conducted with members of Canada’s professional Bench Press and fitness communities.
    “PowerPress is amazing. It’s so intense with such little weight on the bar. PowerPress delivers a much more complete chest and shoulder workout than I ever get with a barbell or set of dumbbells.”
Curd Hos, Champion Powerlifter & Owner, Hos-Style Training
