Innova Fitness inversion tables are some of the most affordable on the market, with most of their ITX models costing less than those in the Ironman Gravity collection.
Usually available for under $160, this also puts them at a lower price point than the inversion table from Sunny Health and Fitness – a company that specializes in creating bestselling fitness equipment.
But as well as being affordable, this $100-$150 price range is also the most competitive, with designs from Ironman, Body Max, Pure Fitness, and Weslo to name a few.
So what is it that makes the Innova Fitness tables so popular?
This guide is designed to help you find the best balance of features for your budget, with in-depth reviews for each of Innova’s inversion therapy tables.
We’ve also included comparisons with higher and lower priced designs from the companies mentioned above, as well as the premium tables from Teeter Hang Ups.
Innova Fitness ITX9250
Despite being Innova’s entry level inversion table, the ITX9250 can often be found on Amazon for the same price as the upgraded ITX9300 model.
Most inversion tables we review use a safety tether strap to control the maximum angle of inversion, including the top-of-the-line models from Teeter Hang Ups.
But with the ITX9250 you don’t have a tether strap or disk brake locking system to limit the rotation of the table. Instead you’re given a safety bar that can be set at one of three positions along the height of the rear U-frame.
This is the exact same system as on the ITX9300, and as long as you set the adjustable boom to the correct height setting, is an efficient and safe way to support you during your session.
Unfortunately this means you don’t get quite the same freedom of angles as you do with a safety strap. If this is something that’s important to you and you don’t want to extend your budget, the Body Champ IT8070 uses a combination of safety strap and locking bar for just a few dollars more. It also has the same 250 lb capacity.
Innova Fitness ITX9300
Offering the same 50″ (L) x 27″ (W) footprint as the earlier ITX9250 model, the ITX9300 is also built around the same 4-point pod system.
The 3-position safety bar offers an identical range of inversion positions, which makes it easier to remember which setting was used on your previous session.
But the main upgrade comes in the form of a fully-padded backrest, which has been ergonomically contoured to provide effective support for your head and neck, as well as your lumbar region.
At 250 lbs the weight capacity is the same as the ITX9250, as is the supported user height range of 5’1″ to 6’3″.
If you’re like the look of the entry level model but want something with a bit more comfort and cushioning for what’s usually a very similar price, the ITX9300 is an excellent choice. Alternatively if you’re looking for this added comfort but want a wider range of rotation settings, the ITX9600 is the first inversion table in their collection to offer a 4-position rotation locking system.Read the full reviewCheck price
Innova Fitness ITX9600
The ITX9600 represents the first inversion table from Innova Fitness to control the rotation with a locking pin system instead of a safety bar. This allows you to set the maximum inversion angle at 20, 40, 60, or 80 degrees beyond parallel.
The cushioning system has again been upgraded since the earlier ITX9300 model, with a separate section specifically for supporting your head and neck, and a wider table bed for your shoulders.
Instead of using two sets of padded foam rollers, one set of ankle comforters is now contoured and cushioned to provide a more comfortable grip around your ankles.
One feature that hasn’t changed though is the length of the pull pin used to lock the ankle holders in place. This isn’t something Innova offer on any of their inversion tables, but we would recommend taking a look at the Ironman Gravity 3000 if this feature is important to you.
Weight capacity has also been increased to the full 300 lbs, which is the highest that Innova Fitness tables can support. Some of the high-end Ironman inversion tables can support slightly more (350 lbs), but these will usually carry a higher price tag.Read the full reviewCheck price
Innova Fitness ITX9700
As the top model in Innova’s ITX collection, the ITX9700 features a similar memory foam system to their ITM4800 model, but without the therapeutic vibration massage.
However, you do still benefit from the isolated heat therapy via a hot/cold compress (not included), which is positioned against the muscles in your lower back.
The cushioning itself is memory foam, which provides an added level of comfort compared to the earlier ITX9600 design. Inversion control is managed via the same safety pin system, with four equally space angles to choose from.
Both sets of ankle comforters are now ergonomically molded to better fit the shape of your ankles and reduce the likelihood of pinch points when inverted.
The horizontal steel bars at the base of the frame have again been chosen in place of the 4-point pod system of earlier models, which can help improve stability over level floors.
