Pushup Center / Exercise Machine

Pushup Center
Pushup Center

The Pushup Center is a device to increase muscle strength for those who can not perform pushups at their current muscular state. Many kids are bullied for being weak and embarrassed for underperforming in gym classes. This product can bridge the barrier to entry and allow the user to gain muscle strength, gain confidence and avoid bullying.
Using a spring/pin mechanism the device can adjust body placement to ease the difficulty of a pushup. This will allow weaker individuals to begin exercising and gaining results. The handles on the board spin to maximize the muscles used and slide to allow for various sizes and exercises.
