The . is specially designed to ensure that the user experiences less pressure bearing down on their spine and stretches the muscles as well as decompressing the vertebrae during each inversion therapy session.

Pros

  • The Body Champ IT8070 is one of the most affordable tables on the market whilst also offering everything you expect from a good inversion table.
  • The IT8070 is simple to use and assemble and is great for first time users
  • This inversion table folds neatly away so it can be stored.
  • Strong safety bars for returning safely to an upright position.

Cons

  • The ankle supports can be somewhat uncomfortable, as there doesn’t seem to be as much padding as may be desired.
  • This inversion table lacks an angle control for the actual inversion.

Assembly

The Body Champ 8070 is a lightweight inversion table, so actually getting it to it’s desired location is easy enough for one person to carry. At around 50 lbs, this is one of the lighter inversion tables on the market. It is also very easy to assemble too.

This inversion table is also small enough to be stored away in a cupboard and it is lightweight enough to be able to move out of the way for convenience if necessary.

Design

The . is designed to make you feel as secure as possible whilst you are using the inversion table. Being held in an inverted position can pose some risks, so it is important that you are secure and that you feel safe when using any inversion table.

The backrest on the Body Champ IT8070 features a comfortable foam cushion to give as much comfort as possible whilst the user is in an inversion.

You should be aware that the Body Champ IT8070 is very lightweight and as such isn’t as strong as some of the bulkier inversion tables.

Because of this, the inversion table isn’t suitable for those with a bulkier build. If you’re heavier than average, this may not be the right inversion table for you.

Ankle Supports

This inversion table features 4 strong tubular style foam pads that help keep the ankles as cushioned as possible during the inversion. The Body Champ IT8070 could maybe benefit from having a little more padding however for that added comfort. Adjusting the ankle supports can be done quickly using the spring-loaded pin mechanism in the ankle support.

Weight Capacity

The Body Champ IT8070 is capable of bearing the weight of users who weigh up to 250lbs. Although some tables do have a higher weight capacity, they can be difficult to move out of the way and are far too bulky to store, even when folded.

If you weight less than 250lb, you should consider the Body Champ IT8070 Inversion Therapy Table if you want a convenient table that could be shifted out of the way when you are not using.

This is one is great for home use. This inversion table can be adjusted to suit heights from 4 foot 7 inches to 6 foot 8 inches.

Inverting with the Body Champ IT8070

A safety lock and strap ensures that you will be safe and secure whilst you are using the inversion table and this is easy to control and use.

You can choose the angle at which you wish to be inverted and then simply lock your ankles into the ankle holder as you lean your body against the backrest of the inversion table. Once your feet are in position, you can raise your arms and allow the table to invert slowly backwards.

The Body Champ IT8070 is perfect for beginners as the operation is so simple. Just adjust the inversion positioning straps, strap your ankles into the footrests, and you’re good to go.

You can easily return back to the starting position again by using the ergonomic U-shaped handles and enjoy up to a 90-degree inversion, which is usually unachievable with other models.

Storage

Unlike other bulkier inversion tables, the Body Champ IT8070 has a lightweight frame and can be easily folded for transportation. You can fit it in a car if you want to move it from one location to another, or simply fold and store away in a cupboard or up against a wall until you want to use it again.

Safety

When you are using the ., you can rest assured that you will be safe and secure. If you weigh up to 250lbs, the table will comfortably support your weight, so even if you are in a complete inversion, you will be safe.

To give you added comfort, the handles that you use to return to an upright position are U-shaped, making it easier for you to grasp and pull yourself up without the risk of your hands slipping.

When the Body Champ IT8070 is not in use, you can be sure that the equipment is safe from causing any harm to anyone as the safety lock will keep it in place whilst you are not using it.

Summary

There are not many inversion tables on the market that offer the kind of price tag that the . offers, making it great for home users. You can be sure to enjoy all the features of any good inversion table with this table though despite its low price tags.

One of the very few setbacks of this table is the low weight threshold, but if you are under 250lbs, you will be able to enjoy all the benefits of this table, including it’s weight, as the lower threshold means that it is less bulky and better for storing and folding.
