The Ironman 3000 Inversion Table from Ironman fitness is one of the best selling inversion tables on the market. If you have not heard of it then it may be because its recently be re branded from the popular Ironman 5800 model. If you are here looking for the 5800 model then you have found it!
Read our full review of the Ironman 3000 Inversion Table.
For a good quality Invertion Table the Ironman 3000 really ticks the box. We like the cheaper Innova Ftiness ITX9600, however the extra investment really tells, the Ironman feels more durable and gives increased confidence when being used. The last thing you want when hanging upside down is worrying about how cheap the bolts are! For us spending about $200 is probably about as low as you would want to go for the reassurance it brings.
Having just touched on this its worth exploring the build quality a little more. That extra spend over lower cost tables can be found in the higher thickness of steel and overall quality of the components that goes into this Inversion Table. It’s fair to say that the Ironman inversion table lives up to its name! If you are familiar with the Ironman films, this looks more like the first prototype model. It might look a little crude, but its very strong and rock solid.
Another area where the extra money is worth spending over some of the entry level machines is the comfort factor. We found the 2″ thick back board to be really soft, and since its made of the same stuff that goes into expensive memory foam mattresses it molds ot the back. This eliminates all the pressure points that can cause discomfort on other machines. The only down side is that you cannot target specific areas of the back for acupuncture pressure balls, as they just sank into the back board. If you want this feature then something like the Teeter Hangups EP950 is perfect
Secure Foot Attachment
We have separated out the foot attachment here, its an important part of the Inversion Table, as its where you are physically connected, and most stress is caused.
On the Ironman 3000 your feet are attached the table through a ratchet system that you can quickly and easily control to apply just the right amount of pressure to your ankles. Not enough to cut off the blood flow, yet firm enough to hold you securely. Even if you are bigger the ankle supports are still excellent, we have heard of people with upto size 14 feet using this table quite successfully.
This table can be used to treat a number of ailments, including Back Pain, Fatigue and poor Circulation.
