Take body weight training to a whole new level with Smart Straps! This all-in-one functional fitness training system allows you to train smarter by recruiting more muscles for stabilization. Try performing a Bridge with your feet in the Smart Straps cuffs and you’ll instantly feel what we mean. Hello glutes and hamstrings!
Three Reasons to Try Body Weight Training using our SMART Straps
- Amplified your regular body weight exercises
- Accommodates people of all fitness levels –from novices to elite athletes
- Easy to use and completely portable so you can take your workout anywhere!
Amplified your regular body weight exercises
Smart Straps are used in 4 basic ways: (1) Pulling, (2) Pressing, (3) Feet in Cuffs Facing Down (Prone), and (4) Feet in Cuffs Facing Up (Supine).
The versatility of these 4 basic movements allows to increase the challenge of any body weight exercise. Don’t be fooled by the simple appearance of a strap-based body weight training system. This amplified version of your regular body weight moves can make for an incredibly challenging workout. Notice how much more you need to engage your core to maintain stability when performing exercises with Smart Straps!
Accommodates people of all fitness levels –from novices to elite athletes
On top of recruiting more muscles, Smart Straps are easy to modify to your fitness levels! You are in control of the range of motion, and you can easily modify the work up or down based on your training level.
Simply adjust the angle you are preforming the exercise to increase to decrease the amount of body weight you are working against! For example, when preforming a Push Up on your Smart Straps if the exercise is too difficult, move your feet closer to the Smart Straps. If the push ups are too easy, move your feet further away!
Smart Straps are easy to use and completely portable
Just like all Prism Fitness Smart products, the Smart Straps have exercises printed directly on the surface, so you are never left wondering “what to do.”
Smart Straps are Easy to Anchor and Adjust!
Each Smart Strap has a door anchor so you can loop and secure the strap around a bar (e.g., chin up bar). Use the straps at home or while traveling by closing the anchors in a sturdy door. Be sure to set up so the door opens away from you.

Once anchored, adjust the length of the straps to best suit your proportions and the exercise. You can also adjust the anchor width to make exercises more or less challenging.
Adjustable straps let you easily cater to your own proportions and exercise needs. You can also change the width to make exercises more or less challenging. Set them wider for greater stability or narrower to make exercises more difficult.
How to Adjust Smart Strap Length
If you want to provide extra challenge for the core muscles, use the Strap Connector to join both straps together. Rather than securing each individual strap to a bar or door, simply wrap the connector around a sturdy object like playground equipment, strong tree branch, or a chin up bar. Without the stability of the individual strap anchor, you need to engage the core even more to maintain control during each exercise.
