An athlete is only as strong as the support he has behind him. I am grateful to each of my sponsors for joining my team and making what I do possible.
How Much Ya Bench
We are a family owned company and have been in business since 2009.
Our first product, the Original Sling Shot was invented by Mark Bell as a way to train the bench press while hurt. He is a top level powerlifter and benches over 500 lbs. raw, so he often dealt with nagging pain in the shoulders and elbows. He came up with the Sling Shot as a way to bench heavy without pain. All our Sling Shots are easy to use, just slide them up over your biceps and start benching. They work by stretching with you as you lower the weight to your chest, then when you are at the bottom of the lift, the Sling Shot gives you a little extra spring that allows you to get the weight moving again and complete the lift. All the models can also be used for assistance with pushups and dips and allow you to do more reps!
We introduced the other models of Sling Shots as a way to cater to all lifters and benching needs. We classify each model in different levels of ASSISTANCE. Our Level 1 Sling Shot is the REACTIVE model and it is our most passive Sling Shot giving you enough assistance to overload, but not too much. It is best for our lifters that are benching lighter weights (under 300 lbs.). The Level 2 Sling Shot is the ORIGINAL model and it is made from stronger, stiffer material. It is best used for overload and for lifters looking to break through bigger weight goals. The Level 3 Sling Shot is our FULL “BOAR” model and is very similar to the ORIGINAL, but it has angled sleeves making it fit more snug on the upper arms and lay flatter across the chest. It also engages the weight a little sooner that the ORIGINAL, therefore giving the lifter a little more assistance that the level 2.
The Level 4 Sling Shot is the MADDOG and it is a double-ply version of the Original. The MADDOG is very stiff and very hard to use unless you have substantial weight on the bar (400+). It is NOT recommended for anyone that cannot lift close to 500 lbs. on their own.
The Rogue way
We have strayed off the beaten path of the traditional equipment sales market. We don't have a salesman in every region pushing our products, we rely upon word of mouth.
We built the first store bringing in all the niche manufacturers into one place for one stop shopping. Our partnership with Ahmik Jones was vital to the evolution that has occurred. We are fully integrated into various equipment lines and we warehouse all of the associated items in our equipment packages. Many may say they do it but we post pictures of it every week.
Our phone number is (614) 358-6190 and we answer the phone so that you can make an educated decision on your equipment purchase. Our email address is firstname.lastname@example.org and we answer it very quickly.
We make much of our equipment in the US which employs hundreds of US workers. We are part of the revolution. We listen to our customers ideas and many times bring new products to market based on their ideas, suggestions and yes complaints!
We would not be Rogue if we were not built on the expertise of many. If we put our name on a product you can rest assured it will be high quality. Many of our products are guaranteed for life, we do this by making it in the United States.
I invite you to look through our equipment and talk to those that are proud owners of Rogue strength and conditioning equipment.

New Age Performance
THE WORLD’S #1 ATHLETIC ENHANCER
At New Age Performance Inc our goal is to develop and provide you, our customer, with products that will help you perform at your highest level, within your non-contact sport or chosen fitness activity.
After observing many people at several gyms, we noticed that people were intense in their approach to training; eating the proper food, and digesting the required nutritional supplements to perform at their utmost best.
However, we did also notice one common theme, that being, that most of the people working out and giving their best were not in proper body alignment. Research clearly indicates that improper body alignment, rounding of the shoulders, and muscle tension limits the body’s overall potential.
We decided to develop a solution to this problem. We quickly realized that the body works from the top and down. In other words, if your head is tilted to one side, or your head is slightly forward from your spine, this will limit the rest of your body from working efficiently, no matter how well you diet , or take the proper nutritional supplements.
Our goal was to develop a key that would improve your body alignment and thereby unlock your potential instantly so you may perform at the highest level, without restrictions.
We found that the key was to find your optimal bite, this in turn would force the muscles of your face into a relaxed position, and therefore decrease the tilting of the head, as well as forward head posture, resulting in proper body alignment.
Thus, the discovery of The New Age Performance Mouthpiece. A product which is placed over your lower teeth, and involves a fitting process, to put your bite into an optimal position, all of which you can do yourself. Once, you have the right bite, you have conquered improper body alignment, and can now perform at a New level of Performance.
Whether you are a weekend warrior, a dedicated athlete, or you just want to experience a great fitness workout, then we invite you to try the New Age Performance mouthpiece.

Satori is a Japanese word, which means to have an "epiphany or an awakening," where once you have the answers, suddenly anything seems possible, which in our case means building a better body. The "I" was added to make it more personal, because every transformation begins within. With you. And so the name iSatori was born.
In today's world, information is overabundant — from television to radio to magazines to locker room talk, even from the people we speak with at work. Especially when it comes to building a better body and improving our health. And unfortunately, in the fitness industry, there is more misinformation — information that tends to be untruthful, half-lies, or mixed messages—than truths in circulation.
Aggravated, oftentimes disgusted, by the deceitful marketing tactics and dubious messages used by supplement companies, Stephen Adelé vowed to bring consumers the honest-to-goodness truth and help them find a voice of reason. In an industry where overhyped and underperforming "quick fixes" seemed to become the rule rather than the exception, Stephen decided "enough was enough" and proclaimed to help bring commonsense back to an industry where, unfortunately, commonsense is not common at all.
After several carefully constructed product ideas were assessed, working diligently alongside top medical doctors and nutritional biochemists, Stephen mindfully came up with the idea for the company in late 2001: iSatori—a Total Solutions provider to help individuals build their best bodies and healthy minds.
