Build A Better Athlete From the Ground Up
What are the skills athletes need to be successful? Strength and performance training is a broad scope, but it develops the core skill set needed to compete. Let’s take a closer look at what it takes compete at the next level – in sport and in life. Foundational Strength, Explosive Power, and Speed & Agility are key factors in building up your athletes. A durable and reinforced foundation is essential for injury prevention and athletic performance. It is crucial for athletes to develop strong core musculature while maintaining a wide range of motion that will serve as a sturdy yet functional base of support. In physics, power is measured by the amount of force produced over a period of time.

Strengthen Your Conditioning Program with the RMT Club
As strength and conditioning continues to evolve, so must the equipment used by coaches and facilities. Successful athletic training programs feature traditional weight training principles integrated with functional and flexibility training techniques. These training cycles are programmed in a cyclical fashion based on the season of the sport. The new RMT Club is the perfect device to use to partner functional training with sport-specific movements. Rotational Movement Training can develop improvements in strength, rotation, and ambidexterity as it is designed to be used on both the dominant and non-dominant sides of the body. The RMT Club’s unique design not only makes it extremely versatile but also allows an athlete in any sport to perform a wide range of exercises from mobility to strength and conditioning. While you can still perform traditional Indian club training movements with the RMT Club – it is far more advanced in design and application.
