Our fast-paced lives cause a lot of stress not only mentally but also physically. I am so grateful that inversion therapy was introduced to me.

After thorough research, I got the Ironman LX 300. For a newbie, I find it surprisingly easy to use!

It also has sufficient safety and comfort features – just enough to give that sore back some relaxing decompression.ironman-lx-300

Cons:

  • No headrest
  • Does not lock securely when folded

Features

Ankle Locking System

ironman-lx-300-foam-roller-and-ankle-cushionsDue to the pressure that the ankles absorb during inversion, comfortable locks and easy release system are must-haves.

Thankfully, the Ironman LX 300 has both.

The cushions hold the ankles securely. The foam rollers are fine, although I prefer something that fits more snugly. They are not ergonomic grips like those in more expensive inversion tables, but they work well enough to make you feel safe.

It also has a pull pin release system, a simple but very significant mechanism for people with back problems.

Stable Frame

Stability is another major factor to look for in inversion tables. Nobody wants to compromise safety in a very risky piece of exercise equipment.

Despite its affordable price, the Ironman LX 300 has a heavy-duty steel frame. It allows the table to stay firmly positioned on the floor.

Design and Specificationsironman-lx-300-inversion-table

The Ironman LX 300 is a compact inversion table measuring 46.5 x 27 x 57 inches (L x W x H) and weighing 55 lbs.

It is quite stable mainly due to the 1.5 inches thick square steel frame.

The backrest is made of 3/4″ soft foam. However, it would be much more comfortable if it has a headrest.

The table’s 275-pound weight capacity is a bit lower than most inversion tables, but it should still be sufficient for most.

Its height range is also 1-2 inches shorter than other inversion tables. It can be adjusted between 4’10” and 6’6″.

F.A.Q.

ironman-lx-300-foldable-inversion-tableIs it easy to set-up?

Yes. Assembly is relatively easy, although instructions could be better written. It is also advisable to use your own tools instead of the ones that come with the table.

Does it fold for easy storage?

Yes. It can be folded when not in use or if you need to move it to another location. However, it needs a more secure locking mechanism.

What is the user weight capacity?

The maximum user weight is 275 lbs.

My husband is more than 6 feet tall. Can he use this table?

Absolutely. It can be adjusted to accommodate users up to 6’6″ tall.

Are there indicators for the degrees of inversion?

None. There is an adjustable strap to control the degree of inversion, but there are no markers to indicate specific degrees.

Other Options

Another affordable but stable inversion table is the Ironman Gravity 1000.

It does not have fancy accessories but has the basic features like an ankle locking system and height adjustment.ironman-lx-300-inversion
