Kettlebell

Unique spherical shape provides the ability to work with curvilinear movements, force and momentum

KB are found in a variety of sizes, weights and colors; the weight varies from 3 pounds to over 100 pounds

Kettlebell training introduces momentum to your workout, taking functional training to another level

Each movement is a total body exercise thatimproves cardiorespiratory fitness, increasesmuscular strength and endurance, while simultaneously enhancing balance, core strength, coordination and posture.


Sandbell

Sandbells are a versatile free weight that can be used as a more challenging substitute for dumbbells, kettlebells and medicine balls

They can be safely thrown and caught or slammed which allows for many creative uses during a workout

Sandbells add a unique challenge during workouts with grip strength and stabilization due to the shiftingsand within the bell

Because the hands are connected directly to the brain via the nervous system, the different griptechniques engage the brain to develop new neuralpathways for efficient movement.


BOSU Balance Trainer

The BOSU Balance Trainer is an inflated rubberhemisphere attached to a black rigid platform. It is also known as the "blue half-ball" because it looks like a stability ball cut in half

The BOSU can be positioned two ways:

When the dome side faces up, the BOSU ball provides an unstable surface while the device remains stable

With the dome side down, the device can be used for athletic drills and aerobic activities

This combination of stable/unstable movementallows a wide range of users, from the young, elderly, or injured to the elite level athlete?.


ViPR

ViPR bridges the gap between movement and strength training

It combines full-body movement with load, enhancing vitality, performance and reconditioning

Loaded Movement Training combines task-oriented movement patterning with resistance training. Agility and strength come from moving the body in a multitude of purposeful tasks with load

ViPR was inspired by farm kids who moved with load in daily life and who were stronger than any other competitors in sport

Science shows that moving with load improves balance, agility and dynamic strength, to reach goals such as weight management, improved functionality in daily life and enhanced performance in spirit.


Gliding Disc

Gliding discs add a different kind of intensity to your usual exercises by helping you engage multiple muscle groups while stabilizing your body using your core

They allow you to do smooth, graceful movements that firm and tone your muscles

GDs introduce a new challenge to your upper and lower body exercises

Gliding discs are designed to slide smoothly on carpet or hardwood floors.
