HOT GYM FACTS

96 Is the number of Hot Gyms I plan to make each year.

57 Seperate parts in total are used to make each one.

15 Hours of Precision Engineering are required to produce just one.

Years is how long it took using methodical experimentation to create the original Hot Gym.

Different shapes and sizes of expensive lightweight Aluminium are used in its construction

Years of Methodical experimentation to improve the Original Design into the Final Product.

Different shapes and sizes of steel are used in its construction.

3  Minutes or under is the achievable assembly time once familiarised with the procedure.

1  6mm Ball Ended Allen Key is all that is needed for its assembly

The Home Or     Travel GYM development

My name is Ian Johnson pictured above, the Inventor of the HOT GYM. In 1993 aged 31 after finalising my upper body routine I decided being a Skilled Mechanical Engineer to create my own Portable Chin Up and Dip Station so whether at home or travel I could perform my routine . It took 9 years to complete its design then I personally completed a Patent Application and submitted it in 2002. After a Worldwide search a Patent was Granted for the World's First Portable Freestanding Exercise Apparatus.

Over the next 15 years I have made and sold over 3,000 of them Worldwide. Then over the following 3 years I implemented design changes to speed up and make the assembly easier whilst also improving the positions of the Top Bar and Dip Handles without losing the integrity of the Hot Gym.

THE ORIGINAL DESIGN OBJECTIVES IN 1993

To create a Freestanding Chin Up and Dip Station that would be quick and easy to assemble, lightweight for travel and would retain its integrity even though portable in nature.

SOLUTIONS THAT TOOK 9 YEARS TO COMPLETE

1. Source materials that can slide inside each other to reduce its size for travel or storage and create parts that can have a function in the Hot Gyms portable and erect forms.

2. Use 6082 T6 Grade Aluminium which is expensive to reduce its weight wherever possible which is strong enough to withstand high loads over time.

3. Adhere to strict tolerances in the production process to eliminate any movement between the connecting parts thereby ensuring integrity through use over time.

THE QUICK ASSEMBLY DESIGN OBJECTIVE IN JANUARY 2017  

To Speed up and make the assembly easier whilst retaining the Hot Gym’s integrity.

SOLUTIONS THAT TOOK 18 MONTHS TO COMPLETE

 

Preassemble larger brackets onto the feet to incorporate a captive clamping bolt thereby reducing the number of loose assembly bolts, down from 14 to just 6, reducing the assembly time from 5 minutes to under 3.

THE FINAL DESIGN OBJECTIVES IN JULY 2018

To improve the User Experience by repositioning the Top Bar and Dip Handles.

SOLUTIONS THAT TOOK 18 MONTHS TO COMPLETE

1. Connect the Top Bar onto the Upper Legs thereby moving the forearms away from the Uprights when performing Lat Pull Ups.

2. Branch inwards off the Dip Handles to connect the Uprights resulting in a narrower more natural Dipping position.

3. Connecting the Feet and Brackets together by inserting the 4 retaining bolts through the feet and securing them into the Brackets creating room to place the new shaped Dip Handles into when Travelling or Storing
