Łukasz Czapla 16.04.2020
The European Championships in pneumatic shooting took place from February 22nd to March 3rd in Wrocław. Today we got pictures in which our Łukasz Czapla wins a medal.
Below is Łukasz’s story of how he was preparing for the start:
„The European Championships in Wrocław were a special competition for me. Of course, there were many international events in Poland in which I took part, but they were never actual championships. Therefore, I was particularly anxious to present my best side and, of course, to win in Poland. I have been waiting for such sporting competitions in my country throughout my career.
The preparations I’ve done were really hard – both technical training with weapons and general development, which I could expand thanks to the support of the HMS brand (I use brand’s smith machine, a wooden chest and a rowing machine). The problem was that before the championships I was out of form and shape.
Somewhere in the back of my head I thought that by the time the championships come, I would probably be ready. However, I wanted to see at least a glimpse of it during training… The qualifying round for the championship was a marathon – we were shooting from 7 in the morning up until 6 in the afternoon. All day at the shooting range, all day concentrating and fighting with yourself.
Things turned out so that I got the best result in the eliminations and it was actually my best score for a couple of years now. As expected, I was in a good shape on the first day. Everything that I had planned and wanted to do came out right. All the more, I’m a bit angry about the final shootings and only getting the bronze medal. As for the direct fight for the bronze medal with the Ukrainian Kizyma, I shot practically flawlessly maintaining my high level from the eliminations. I am happy with the bronze medal at the European Championships but I also have a little bit of hunger for the gold because I know and feel that I could have won this competition easily. „
Łukasz – CONGRATULATIONS FOR THE NEXT EUROPEAN CHAMPIONSHIP!
Monika Szymanek in HMS 01.04.2020
Monika Szymanek is the Polish Junior Champion in Olympic doubles in the up to 55 kg category. She also holds many Polish records in the categories 53 and 55 kg under the age of 15, 17, 20 and 23.
Due to the current situation, all clubs and gyms have been closed, so our Champion has nowhere to train.
Together with Monika, we thought about how to deal with this situation. The HMS brand handed her a weight lifting bar, weights, flooring and other small equipment pieces so that she did not have to stop her training. Monika’s dad has used his garage creating a pretty decent training room.
Welcome Monika Szymanek to the HMS Team!

Why exactly 30K calories? Because this year the bank is celebrating its 30th anniversary. The most important purpose of this event was to show how to change your lifestyle and introduce into it an element of physical activity. Popularization of sport in society is an important subject, therefore the bank supporting various initiatives including „Run Warsaw” and jogging trainings for employees.
In the world that requires high efficiency, it is easy to forget that the most important element for quality of life is our fitness. Without it, our involvement and power goes down. Basic rules of fitness and knowledge of appropriate exercises aren’t complicated. However it is much easier to explore the topic with the help of experienced trainer, rather than with online content. The main purpose of the event „Lets Burn 30K calories” was exactly widening of knowledge about daily exercises and building good habits among ING Bank Śląski employees. The project had specific objectives: all gathered – nearly 100 people – tried to burn a total of 30,000 calories in an hour, under the guidance of experienced trainers.
Fitness workshops were also an opportunity for support youth from Football Academy „Przedszkolaczek”, which operates at the KS Szombierki sports club. The HMS brand provided fitness equipment for the presentation of individual exercises. The brand donated the accessories used at the event to the sports club. In addition, bank employees raised money for the purchase of additional equipment for the football academy.

Among numerous products we presented it is worth listing bumpers and kettlebells presented with new designs, as well as training bands arranged in new, functional sets.

that means the best quality
This year we have introduced to our offer a new generation of bikes and elliptical bikes. Their braking system is controlled by electromagnet. This type of equipment has higher level of technological development.
In traditional bikes and elliptical bikes the resistance is reached by a fraction of the flywheel. In magnetic bikes and elliptical bikes it is achieved by changing the intensity of magnetic field created by electromagnet. The resistance force is set electronically by a microprocessor. It is controlled by electric motor. It gives the possibility to set its value with great precision.
The greatest advantage if this system is bigger fluidity of changing the resistance level. Reducing and increasing its scale, as well as the perception of above mentioned, occur in short period of time.
And that’s not all! Magnetic bikes and elliptical bikes have a possibility to set higher level of resistance than the models with mechanical technology. It allows to offer bigger number of training programs and functions.
At the same time the device is very silent so the training don’t disturb the people that are around you.
When choosing the magnetic equipment we receive a high-tech device that offers a wide range of exercises. Each user can personalize it according to their preferences or level of professionalism.

Be fit – exercise with a roller!26.08.2016
Foam rollers FS104, FS107, FS109 are our novelty items that complement the already rich selection of rollers in the HMS product line – a collection of equipment and accessories designed for a complete workout, therapy and rehabilitation.
Every item has been made of high quality materials, which guarantees comfort of use. EVA foam is abrasion-resistant and does not absorb moisture, making the product very easy to keep clean.
The roller will not only help improve the physical condition, but will also tone the body effectively. Due to its massage function it will be an excellent choice for those wanting to enhance blood circulation.
A workout with a roller activates and strengthens postural muscles, which in effect improves the overall endurance and mildly corrects postural faults. The exercises will enhance your joint mobility, flexibility and agility.
Foam rollers are increasing in popularity as they help eliminate hardening of connective tissue. Consequently, muscle tension is reduced allowing full fascial relaxation and thus creating optimal conditions for an effective regeneration process.
Advancing of these regeneration processes whilst maintaining maximum effectiveness translates directly into your results. It is in fact a domino effect, as you will be able to develop faster, increase your endurance and prepare yourself for more demanding workouts.
LS3859 is a HIT!!!20.07.2016
For everyone looking for versatile fitness equipment to increase muscle definition and physical strength, we have introduced a brand new weight lifting bench LS3859 with a maximum weight of 270 kg.
The bench offers a sufficient level of exercise variety for both lower and upper body parts. You can train all muscle groups: the chest, arms, legs and thighs.
LS3859 HMS consists of two independent parts: a bench and a barbell stand. The equipment is fully configurable – from the height of bar to a 6-position adjustable backrest, and a detachable preacher curl attachment – designed to meet your workout needs.
LS3859 HMS is made of high quality materials, which guarantees a high level of stability and safety of use. Durable EVA foam has been used for your comfort and carbon-style upholstery provides a modern touch with enhanced durability.
Top quality weight lifting bars05.02.2016
The Olympic bar GO680 HMS is made of hardened chrome steel. It is a perfect combination of high durability with an ideal level of flexibility. It is fitted with a precisely knurled, firm and comfortable grip, and comes with two plastic collars.
The barbell allows for a maximum load of 680 kg. The shaft with a 28 mm diameter offers high durability without any loss of comfort for the user. The process of chrome plating ensures that the bar will maintain its original appearance over a very long period of time and is the best method of rust prevention.
GO680 HMS is fitted with 8 needle bearings in order to provide smooth rotation of sleeves. Despite their moderate diameter, needle bearings provide a high level of stiffness and dynamic capacity. The construction of the bar ensures that the tension between its moving parts is eliminated, which in consequence results in an increased lifespan of bearings.
As a high quality piece, the bar will be a good investment for many years.
