400 lbs of Resistance
in a 50 lb Suitcase


The Astro Rack™ is a patent pending portable power rack for weightlifters who want a home gym, but don't have the time, space, or money to build one. The Astro Rack delivers the traditional weightlifting experience with a lightweight and compact machine.

Powered by mechanical & lightweight resistance plates, the Astro Rack™ system delivers high resistance in a small form factor that allows you to workout anywhere in the world.

Because the resistance plates are mechanical, there is no need to charge the plates, allowing you to workout without limits.

Watch our prototype demo video below for a quick overview of the Astro Rack™

Gravity Emulation

Astro Rack

Free Weights

The Astro Rack uses a patent pending rail system. This system  keeps the position of resistance below the barbell during a workout. In this manner, the Astro Rack emulates gravitational forces that also resist your motion vertically downwards.

Lightweight resistance plates are also used to output a constant force throughout all exercise phases - just like gravity. Therefore, the Astro Rack feels and build muscle in the same manner as free weights.

Lightweight Resistance Plates

The Astro Rack is powered by lightweight resistance plates. These plates use a patent pending mechanism to generate constant resistance that emulates the feel of gravity, all while being lightweight and portable! The plates allow for concentric, eccentric, and isometric resistance exercises and can quickly be setup for any workout, maximizing your lifting time.

Combine any amount of resistance plates to support your resistance needs, whether it's 100, 200, or even 400 pounds!

Additionally, the mechanism only requires metal, so the resistance plates are recyclable! There's no need to charge or power the resistance plates, minimizing our impact on the environment and your wallet.
