Frequently Asked Questions

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.

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!
The Pro is perfect for anyone starting a workout regimen or involved in rehabilitative therapy. And the SideWinder Pro Xtreme is made for the toughest of you, such as the professional athlete.
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.
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.
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.
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.
