Ironman Gravity 3000
Although one if their cheaper tables, the 3000 does not skimp on the essentials. It might not have all the features of more expensive inversion tables, but, as a basic model, it will provide the user with back relief and reduce stress.
By including this particular model with its weight capacity and price in their range, Ironman have increased the number of individuals who can benefit from inversion therapy.
It is worth noting that some inversion table models are sometimes sold under more than one product name by different sellers. In this particular case, the Ironman Gravity 3000 is also sold as the Ironman 5800. As you can imagine, this can often lead to much confusion.
The Gravity 3000 isn’t particularly difficult to assemble and set up. It takes the average person about 30 minutes or so. It also comes with fairly clear instructions.
It is designed with extra-long foam covered safety handles and 3 adjustments for inverting at different angles. It also inverts up to 180 degrees.
Includes extra wide steel tube frame for additional weight support to accommodate users of up to 350 lbs. Scratch resistant powder coated finish

The ankle support has a long quick-release handle with ratchet system which provides secure locking and unlocking of the ankles. This means that users with problems bending over won’t need to bend down too much to release the ankles.
Ergonomically molded ankle cushions provide the user with both comfort and support. Some users however, like to use a combination of socks and shoes for added comfort.
The Ironman Gravity 3000 will support users up to 350 lbs and can be adjusted for users up to 6’ 6” in height.
The product weighs 75 lbs (34 Kg).
When fully set up, the 5800 measures 49″L x 26″W x 65″H (124L x 66W x 165H cm). Folded dimensions are 80″H x 26″W x 17″D (203H x 66W x 43D cm).
When trying out the Ironman 3000 Memory Foam Inversion Table for the first time, start off with the balance position. You lie on the table with your hands at the side and the table moves to the horizontal position. Move your arms higher to your chest, and this will cause the table to tilt past the horizontal position. Moving them back to your sides will make the table swing back to horizontal. Stretching your arms up past your head will make the table move towards the vertical position.
When starting off for the first time, do not try the vertical position straight away. Instead, for the first few days, try the lower angles to accustom you to having the blood rush to your head. Inverting too quickly can result in your feeling dizzy or sick.
After being upside down for a few minutes, slowly come up again and linger in the horizontal position before straightening your body. The extra-long handlebars assist in the user to pull themselves back up. Once you get used to inverting, you can then think about doing some core exercises.
An important feature of the table is the tether strap. This controls the maximum starting angle and allows the first-time user to get used to being upside down without the worry of inverting past their comfortable angle.
The backrest with its foam backing provides a high level of comfort and back support while working towards complete inversion.
Safety is taken care of because the 3000 has an extra sturdy steel frame which makes users feel more secure when inverting and so assist in the relief of stress. The frame is also built to endure the higher weight capacity of up to 350 lbs.
There are also tough rubber non-skid floor stabilizers to prevent any movement while inverting, and the addition of safety vinyl side covers for hand and finger protection.
The frame is warranted for one year, with parts and workmanship free from defects for 90 days.
