How does the SideWinder® compare to similar products?
The SideWinder is the best hand, wrist and forearm exerciser
on the market. The SideWinder is a quality piece of machinery that will
not fall apart like many cheaper imported products.
One of the features that makes it stand apart from competitors is the
fact that the SideWinder can last any number of revolutions in either
direction while maintaining the same resistance. Another feature is that
the adjusting knob is calibrated so if you share the SideWinder you can
always go back to the resistance you were orginally working with.
Where and how is the SideWinder® made?
The SideWinder is made in the USA with steel tubing, machined aluminum
and neoprene handles. It contains no plastic parts that can wear and eventually
break. Just like Mom used to say, you get what you pay for!
Which model is right for me?
The Sportster is perfect for anyone starting a workout regimen
or involved in rehabilitative therapy. The Pro is bigger and built for
a more demanding workout. And the SideWinder Pro Xtreme is made for the
toughest of you, such as the professional athlete.
What else do I get with my SideWinder®?
Every model comes with a full-color brochure with instructions
for using your SideWinder. It also includes photos and explanations of
the various grips and exercises
you can do with your SideWinder.
How do I clean my SideWinder®?
Clean your SideWinder using a soft cloth dampened with mild soap and
water. Thoroughly dry the SideWinder. Never submerge your SideWinder in
water. Never place your SideWinder in sand, dirt, or any gritty substance
which could cause the mechanism to bind up.
How often should I use my SideWinder®?
You should use your SideWinder at least three times per week for a minimum
of 20 repetitions per exercise. Be sure to visit the Using
your SideWinder page and the Your Workout
page for more information about the various exercises.
I want to use my SideWinder® when I travel, does it make any noise?
The SideWinder is a very quiet piece of machinery. It will not disturb
any of your fellow travelers. However, if it's left out in cold weather,
such as in a car, the SideWinder will make a slight noise when you begin
to use it. This noise will stop after a few turns.
