The pros and cons of the Valor Fitness CA 27

The Pros

  • One major benefits of this leg stretching machine is the comfortable padding on the seat, back and leg areas. Once you've achieved your maximum stretch, you can hold that position with good support from this machine.
     
  • The padded covers are made from a wipe-down vinyl, enabling you to clean these areas after use and easily care for your machine.                                                                            
  • Adjustability is another major advantage. You can ensure the machine is an optimum fit for your height and body dimensions. This, in turn, ensures it's effectiveness for improving your flexibility.                                                              
  • Notably, the back support can be set at either of the 2 angles mentioned above. This means you can achieve the most comfortable position before you start your stretching.                                                                                        
  • The steering wheel is easy to grip and allows you to effectively control the stretch degree. It's connected to a gear mechanism that performs adjustments as you turn the wheel in very small, gradual increments. Moreover, the movement is smooth, with no element of the juddering that can be typical in other machines that are equipped with a crank lever.

The cons

  • The ability to track your progress is lacking in this machine. Unfortunately, there's no measuring device fitted to tell you your degree of stretch and, therefore, no means of easily monitoring your progress from session to session.                
  • Although the machine benefits from a steel frame, some user reviews indicate that it's lacking in stability. However, this could be down to individual circumstances such as an uneven floor or even poor assembly by the user after delivery. On the other hand, users have also reported in reviews that any slight wobble doesn't really detract from the machine's overall effectiveness.

Final thoughts

​ In conclusion, this is an extremely popular machine for individual home-gym use. With regular use and your own dedicated training schedule in place, you should be able to achieve your flexibility goals. No matter how far you want to push your leg stretches, even over 180 degrees, the Valor Fitness CA-27 will support and assist you.
