Bottomline: in terms of function don't sweat whether it is an Exer-genie, Exer-Gym, Apollo Exerciser, or any other brand. It is the concept that matters. If I am able to work out a good deal on our own private label with Jim Warren in the future, I will.
The Apollo Core Exercise Mat is great for floor exercises such as pilates, yoga, fitness classes and physiotherapy work. Thickness of 1.5cm (0.6") adds shock absorption for stability when landing, comes with straps for easy transport. Non slip surface on the bottom of the mat and available in two different sizes. Please see sizes below.
The Apollo home exerciser was patented on March 7, 1893 by well known Keene businessman Harry T. Kingsbury. The Apollo factory was located at the corner of Davis and Ralston Streets in Keene. Within a few years Mr. Kingsbury was involved with another Keene business, the Kingsbury Toy Company. With his early interest in exercise and his invention of the Apollo Exerciser, Harry T. Kingsbury was a man ahead of his time.
The ad in question reads as follows: “The Apollo Exerciser is the best apparatus for home use. Recommended by leading physicians. For all persons of sedentary habits. A healthy body creates a healthy mind. Lawyers, clergymen, bookkeepers, students, bankers, teachers, clerks, and children may obtain the exercise they need with (this) apparatus.”
