Omni Original Yoga Swing vs Other Brands

  • Compare prices: Other yoga swings on the market are too expensive compared to their quality and function. Our swings start at $88
  • Other swings have handles that are too short, shortchanging the amount of maneuvers that you should be able to perform on a well-crafted swing. Handle length limits the overall functionality and versatility of a yoga swing
  • Omni Gym yoga swings are made with soft fabric sliders for swing adjustment (not uncomfortable hard plastic sliders)
  • We don’t use unsafe S-Hooks. We use heavy-duty closed-loop carabiners to ensure that your swing will not slip out of place

Omni Swing Pro vs Other Swings

  • Omni Swing Pro comes with built-in height adjustment system. No need for an external nylon cord
  • Omni Swing Pro middle handle loops double as extra hand-holds. No other swing offers this much to “hang on to”
  • Omni Swing Pro comes with footies to cushion feet, knees, thighs, forearms & shoulders for greater comfort and function
  • Omni Swing Pro comes with integrated sling cushioning, eliminating the possibility of the fabric digging into your skin and causing bruising

  • Compare prices: other padded swings may be priced the same yet offer less than the Omni Swing Pro

We often get asked what the difference is between our yoga swings and other swing brands on the market.
Read on for a detailed answer to a great question:

Q: I was wondering if there was any way you can compare your Omni Swing to the newer swings out there. Is your model really more comfortable and why? Thanks in advance for any info you can provide. I ask so because I bought an inversion sling from Yoga**** and I’m out $100+ as it sits collecting dust because it is so painful to use. – Angel

A: Angel, we are fully aware of your concerns. The likely discomfort (sometimes pain) of most other yoga swings found on the market, all of which are modeled after the Omni Yoga Swing Original, is actually what led us to innovate and design our latest Omni Swing Pro model. We quickly realized that any non-cushioned swing tends to dig into the skin and be very uncomfortable, even causing the occasional bruise. This would prevent people from using them as long or as often as desired. The padded Omni Swing Pro was the perfect fix. You can practice for hours, day after day, in TOTAL COMFORT with never a bruise! Beware of inferior copycats online – which are less comfortable, less versatile, and neither as safe nor complete as Omni Gym models. Make sure you know what constitutes a genuine and effective yoga swing and compare the differences before purchasing. Caveut emptor.

To shed more light on the differences between our swings and other brands, we need to divide the following breakdown into two categories and take a look at two of our most popular swing models, the Omni Yoga Swing Original and the Omni Swing Pro:

I. Omni Yoga Swing Original vs. Other Brands

Besides price, the main difference between our yoga swing and others is that they use inferior and/or unsafe components which we would never sell.

1) Overpriced

No one can beat our combination of quality, comfort, and versatility for the price. Compare and share.

2) Hard plastic adjusters

yoga-swing-hard-plastic-slider2a

Hard Plastic Slider

Other brands use these on both the middle sling section as well as the fabric handles and they can dig painfully into the skin during use. We do not use these and opt for soft fabric sliding adjusters instead.

 3) Unsafe S-Hooks

Other brands use open-ended S-Hooks that can easily slip out of either the suspension ropes or the fabric handles themselves. This is a very serious flaw in swing design. All Omni Gym models use the safer and more secure carabiner snap hooks.

Unsafe S-Hook

 

See below for actual footage of a dangerous slip-out with the s-hook handles at 1:55 minutes into the video.   The woman in this video is lucky that she was not in a more compromising position when the handle slipped off.

4) Too-short handles & foot stirrups

Other brands handles are too short to adequately perform the hundreds of maneuvers that are possible on Omni Gym models. This limits the overall functionality and versatility of a yoga swing. Compare handle lengths of other swings with the longer handles & stirrups of our yoga swings.

II. Omni Swing Pro vs. Other Brands

The second category of differences reveals the wide gap between our Omni Swing Pro and all other swings on the market (including even our own Omni Yoga Swing Original). No other yoga swing in the world can boast the unique advantages of the Omni.

1) External nylon cords

Used by all other yoga swing brands for suspension and/or height adjustment. They are unsightly and external to the yoga swing design. The  Omni Swing Pro aesthetically incorporates the height adjustment system right into the swing handles.

2) Built-in cushioning

Omni Swing Pro is the most comfortable yoga swing out there for several important reasons. In the photo below notice how a non-cushioned swing becomes like a tight thin cord that digs into the skin uncomfortably. It will likewise dig into ones spine, arms, waist, hips, thighs, shoulders, etc. once the body’s full weight is hanging on it during inversion, forward-bends or back-bends. This can become painful, may cause bruising, and is the number one complaint from users of this swing model. This also is the number one reason why we revamped our older yoga swing design to come up with the Omni Swing Pro with comfortable cushioning built into both the sling as well as into the footies. No more bruises. Perfect for pain-free swinging.

3) Padded footies

One of the best features of the Omni Swing Pro are the padded footies. They are comfortable to stand on, can be slid up the legs and thighs, and placed under the arms all the way to the shoulders for maneuvers that are unavailable on other swings. This function makes the Omni Swing Pro more comfortable, useful and versatile. The padded footies are multi-functional. Think outside of the box and use them on your thighs, shins, forearms, shoulders, neck or wherever your imagination says go!

4). Handholds

The Omni Swings Pro´s internally-integrated height-adjustment system offers a grand total of 14 different handholds  – and that doesn´t include the two footies nor pull-up bar! Other swings offer only four handholds and two short foot-stirrups. Omni Swing Pro has 5 hand-loops sewn into each of the middle handles and the upper handles are completely independent and can be moved higher or lower onto any of these loops. This feature, combined with the optional pull-up bar Trapeze System, will give you plenty of material to work with in your quest to master the thousands of combinations of maneuvers achievable on your Omni Swing Pro.

 

4) Cincher straps

Lets take a look at these neat little additions. When you get your Omni Swing Pro you will find these wrapped around the padded footies (protects your stirrups). Take them off and you have two cincher straps for the purpose of binding handles and straps together or “cinching” the sling closer together (great for those with tight hips). Here´s another tip: instead of washing the entire footie, when it gets dirty, all you need to do is wash the removable cincher straps. Ingenious.

5) 3-Spring Trapeze System

The next best thing to dancing on the moon! You won’t find this set-up sold anywhere else. Our heavy duty 3-Spring Trapeze System is designed to hold up to 300lbs of weight and promises to give you the ride of your life. Our industrial strength springs are very safe and add a lovely zero-gravity bounce. Gentle bouncing is a great therapeutic tool for the lymph system and just like a baby, you might even find yourself taking your afternoon nap in your swing. Don’t forget it also comes with a pull-up bar with two foam grips and 3 different bar rings just in case you wanted to suspend the swing from a single-point instead of the the normal two-point suspension. Single point suspension also gives you the option of a 360 degree spin. Our Trapeze Systems are available with all swing models.
