War Machine® - The Evolution of Bodyweight Training. Commercial quality and able to be used just about anywhere, the War Machine® Rotational Bodyweight Training™ System is the only bodyweight training gear of its kind to feature a Patented locking and unlocking pulley wheel. Locking the wheel with the magnetic pin greatly stabilizes exercises like other straps based products. PULL THE PIN and you add rotation and a much greater range of motion to all the bodyweight training exercises you’ve grown to love. Having a working pulley has other additional benefits. The War Machine also allows direct drive pulley exercises to be done when single isolation movements are preferred. Counterweights that can be used range from kettlebells, to dumbbells to sandbags. That’s not all, the War Machine is the only bodyweight training tool of its kind to feature handles that clip into the top of the unit to allow for exercises such as pull-ups and knee raises. And when you’re done running the War Machine through a full body workout, the complete system fits into a small carry bad about the size of a shoe box. CrossCore’s products are the only products of their kind to offer rotational training education. CrossCore® Rotational Bodyweight Training™, or RBT™, is accredited through premier education providers such as ACE, NASM, NSCA, NESTA and ISSA.

What is the difference between the War Machine® and the CrossCore180®?
The CrossCore180® is marketed to trainers, clubs, schools, rehab facilities, etc. while War Machine® is marketed to the more hard core crowd such as military, MMA and action sports. Both provide the same Rotational Bodyweight Training capabilities but with a slightly different look. Each include the same basic training manual and DVD.

What maintenance is required for the CrossCore® system?
Like any other home or commercial fitness equipment, the owner or user should perform the following inspections before each use and always revert to the Owners and Users Manual:

  • Read and understand Owners and Users Manual (first time use)
  • Inspect all webbing for wear (anchor strap and handles). If webbing shows signs of wear, fraying, cuts, etc., replace it immediately.
  • Inspect rope for wear. If rope shows signs of wear, fraying, cuts, etc. do not use and replace immediately.
  • Inspect handles for wear and make sure they are in good working condition and not worn.
  • Make sure pulley bolt is always completely tightened.
  • Make sure lanyard hitch or figure eight knots are always present on carabiners or steel oval rings.
  • Make sure plastic rope anchors are always fully tightened, secure and not broken.
  • Do not leave CrossCore180®, War Machine® or any of their components outside in the elements as this can accelerate wear.

Daily inspection and maintenance is the sole responsibility of the owner and user. Each CrossCore® product is made with quality components and will perform in a safe manner if product is used correctly as shown in the Owners and Users Manual.

What is the difference between the CrossCore180® and War Machine®?
The CrossCore180® is marketed to trainers, clubs, schools, rehab facilities, etc. while War Machine® is marketed to the more hard core crowd such as military, MMA and action sports. Both provide the same Rotational Bodyweight Training capabilities but with a slightly different look. Each include the same basic training manual and DVD.

How much space is required to use the CrossCore® system?
You only need a space that is approximately 5' wide by 8' in length when using your Rotational Bodyweight Training System.

How high must my anchor point be to use the CrossCore® system?
Your anchor point can be as low as 7' and as high as 11' to safely attach the anchor strap.

Where can I attach the CrossCore® system?
You can attach the anchor strap to any safe anchor point that will easily hold your body weight. A few examples are a pull-up bar, squat rack, beam, tree branch and door.

Is the CrossCore® system for advanced users only?
No! Since the user determines the amount of resistance by the angle of their body, the user can begin each exercise with little or no angle until a comfortable amount of resistance is found that will allow them to use proper form. The pin can also be engaged to stop the pulley wheel from turning which makes for a much more stable workout.

Is it recommended to use the Locked-N-Loaded feature when I first begin using the CrossCore® system?
Yes! The Locked-N-Loaded feature has many uses, but one of them is to help stabilize the users body while exercising until they become familiar with either product. Once the user has determined the proper body angle for different exercises and is comfortable using the CrossCore® system, only then should they remove the Locked-N-Loaded feature by removing the magnetic pin that is used to lock the pulley wheel in place. Once the pin is removed this is referred to as Open Mode and the pulley will turn freely allowing the user to perform advanced exercises. DO NOT saw the rope back and forth on the pulley while the pin is engaged and the pulley wheel is stopped. This can cause damage to the unit.

Why does the rope slide when the pin is engaged in Locked-N-Loaded mode?
From the beginning, CrossCore’s mission was to create something truly innovational in bodyweight training gear; not just another strap type product. Straps do not rotate and move with your body’s natural movement like CrossCore® so straps will never identify your dominant side if you have one. In fact, your dominant side will continue to feed off this lack of imbalance by not providing rotation. CrossCore’s philosophy is to provide just enough stability when the pin is engaged to allow the user to be stabilized but to give feedback by allowing the rope to slip just enough when too much pressure is placed on just one side. This feedback keeps the mind and body more in tune to what each is doing and also draws in the core more than straps because of the existing instability.

Are the CrossCore® systems strong enough to support even the heaviest of users?
Yes! Both products are a commercial grade tool that are made with only the highest quality components. The total weight rating of the CrossCore® system is approximately 1,000 lbs.
*Always make sure that your anchor point can support your weight before you exercise.

Are the CrossCore® system handles attached to cable or rope?
Rope! Cable would be much too rigid and would severely limit the functionality of both products. The heavy-duty climbing rope we use is rated at 2,200 lbs., is soft against the skin and very easy to store in the canvas carrying bag.

Are the CrossCore® systems a One Size Fits All product?
Yes! Both are designed to accommodate any size user, no matter where you use them.

Can the CrossCore® system accommodate any other attachments besides the handles?
Yes! The CrossCore® system are the most versatile training tools in the world. Here is a list of just some of the additional attachments that can be used:
For Body Weight Training - Grapple Grips, gymnastics rings, rope attachments, different types of handles, body training bars and more.
For Counter Weight Training - Resistance bands of all strengths and sizes (such as Stroops Slastix bands), kettlebells, dumbbells, barbell plates and many other objects that can be safely attached via the optional strap attachment.
*Read the CrossCore "Safety Procedure Checklist" thoroughly before using it with or without counter weights.

Is the CrossCore® system capable of working every muscle in the body?
Yes! If used correctly, the user is able to achieve a deep burn for any muscle desired. You’ll be sore in places you didn’t realize you had muscles!

When you PULL THE PIN where is it stored?
When it’s time to PULL THE PIN, storage is very easy thanks to its magnetic head. Simply insert the pin in one of the carabiner openings at the top of the pulley housing while the pulley is in use. DO NOT let the pin hang free while pulley is in use. Always store the pin in one of the carabiner openings.

What’s with the name War Machine®?
If you're P.C. and "proud to be" that's ok, but take a deep breath. Early on in the developmental stages of our product a few of our guys in the Military and MMA thought it to be so effective some of them referred to it as being a "War Machine" for the body. Who are we to argue? We like it! For schools, clubs, rehabilitation facilities and more, we offer the CrossCore180®.

  • • Removing the magnetic pin to allow the pulley wheel to rotate freely also enables CrossCore® to act as a pulley machine by attaching a counterweight, such as a kettlebell, dumbbell or sandbag, to one end. Using two counterweighted CrossCore units spaced eight feet apart makes for one of the smoothest cable crossovers on the market.
  • • Handles clip in at the top of the CrossCore® for exercises where the pulley is not needed and handles need to be higher off the ground (such as knee raises and pull ups).
  • • Self-leveling handles. No more readjusting the height of your handles in the middle of your workout. CrossCore’s patented pulley system makes this obsolete.
  • • Foot cradle padding pads the feet and arms when performing certain exercises like knee raises and hamstring curls. These cradles open and close for a snug fit on the hands and feet so the user won’t slip out while exercising.
  • • Handles are interchangeable with other cable attachments such as ankle straps, D handles, rope attachments and more.
  • • Rope length can quickly and safely be shortened to any length to add versatility to your exercise routine. Adjustment is only needed on one side! Click here to view video on Rope Adjustment Instructions.
  • • Resistance for most exercises can be increased or decreased in "micro increments" simply by moving the feet forward or backward.
  • • The built in Door Anchor is included FREE and is always attached to the anchor strap and ready to use at any time. PVC coated so it will not scratch.
  • • Optional Ceiling/Wall Anchor allows user to create an anchor point for the strap when one is not already available. (see instructions for mounting info BEFORE installing)
  • • Take it with you! Your CrossCore® system can go with you to the park, to the gym, on vacation or wherever you'd like to go for a change of pace and it all fits into a convenient carry bag. If you are in the military, the CrossCore replaces all the concrete blocks, bales of wire and other crude objects you may have had to resort to for a workout in the past.
