Who We Are

At Resistance Dynamics we believe healthier lives are realized when activity is added every day in a simple and convenient way. We produce revolutionary training tools that make complicated resistance exercise simple for rehabilitation professionals to prescribe and easy for clients to do in-clinic, at home or the office. The revolution begins with our patented MDX™ Technology (Multi-Directional resistance eXercise). It makes elastic resistance exercise a simple part of people’s lives to help improve physical function and health with ease.

Our approach to fitness is different. Exercise doesn’t have to be hard to be effective. Yes, you read it right! Studies show that consistent exercise activity is the best way to improve physical function and health as we grow older, even if individuals are:

  • Recovering from an injury
  • Battling a condition that limits mobility
  • Tethered to a computer for long hours

Where is the fitness equipment that makes it simple for people to move and feel better under these circumstances? This is where we come in.

Our mission is to produce products that make exercise simple to help improve physical function and health but do not require the discipline of a Navy Seal or Olympic Athlete. Too many people have been left on the sidelines for too long. Exercise is the most powerful medicine yet few companies provide realistic and achievable solutions to engage the disengaged.

Our products provide simple rehabilitation and fitness solutions so more people can experience better health, regardless of age, ability or fitness level. Quite simply, we are looking forward to helping our customers move more, look and feel better, without the sweat.

We value our relationships, good health, and working hard with integrity. We are dedicated to serving our customers’ rehabilitation and fitness needs to live better.

Our Philosophy

Wellness is a way of life.  Our health and well-being is created by our lifestyle and the daily choices we make.  It involves the interaction of body, mind and spirit.   You can’t isolate the physical from the mental from the spiritual bodies as they are all connected and impact who we are and how we feel.  The environment we live in, what we eat and how we move and think all has an impact on our health and well-being.

Wellness is an individual process.  Each one of us is personally responsible for the choices we make when it comes to food, exercise, and managing stress.  While we are all in different marketplaces with respect to our choices and health, there is a simple strategy we can all employ to improve our well-being.  It is to focus on changing ONE choice at a time!

Wellness is about choosing to feel better.  The key is to focus on how you feel each time you make a conscious choice.  Let’s say you choose to eat vegetables at each meal, how does it make you feel?  If you decide to relieve stress by breathing deeply for 5 cycles, how does it make you feel?  When you are active throughout your day, how do you feel?  When your food, exercise or “stress less” choice makes you feel better, you will sustain that change. This is when healthy choices become automatic.

Wellness grows when you take action.  No matter what your current state of health, injured or ill, young or growing older, mobile or mobility challenged, each of us can take an active role in making better choices.  Wellness is not a linear process so it helps to keep a journal.  This empowers you to recognize and celebrate the progressive changes you are making.

Wellness starts with moving more.  It’s the simplest thing you can do to feel better physically and mentally.  Science shows and you know that your body and mind work better when you are active versus sedentary.  Exercise activity is a natural stress reliever as well.  These “good vibrations” have a ripple effect on making better lifestyle choices.

We support wellness with products that make complicated resistance exercise simple to help prevent or treat an injury or illness.   Our products can help you integrate exercise activity right into your day for better functioning, healthy aging and well-being.
