Below are some examples of custom solutions we have created over the last 20 plus years, some of these solutions have become part of our standard products.
Findlay Outdoor Jungle
After we completed two weight rooms for Findlay High School, they came back to us with a problem that their current weight rooms were not able to solve. They wanted the ability to train their athletes outside with both body weight and body weight exercises. The solution we created with them was this jungle, it is 32.5 feet long and has different sections that are 7, 8 and 9 feet tall. This jungle has 8 different lifting stations for barbell work with a 12″ deep sand floor for athlete safety.
Riverside Auxiliary Training Station
Riverside High School needed a way to maximize their space and get multiple uses out of their auxiliary machines. So we worked with them to create our first fully integrated Wall Mounted Auxiliary Training Unit. This solution gave them programming options. The wall mounted auxiliary training unit can be used as 8 overflow lifting stations. It has lat pull downs, jammer arms, The Difference machine, plate storage, power conditioning ropes, chin ups with neutral grips and fat bar connectors. The highlight of the unit is the ends that have 4 foot training cubes with arched connectors. All of this within a 5′ x 60′ Area. This unit transforms to solve problems for a diverse amount of training needs.
Arcanum Training Fence
Arcanum High School Sports Performance Center includes a turf area that serves as a staging area for warm-ups, SAQ work, functional movements, etc. They wanted a solution for Power Conditioning Ropes, anchor points for Bands/Tubing and storage. They didn’t want it to eat up the valuable turf space to get this done. Our solution was the Practical Training Fence XL. It’s placement, 18″ from the wall made it space efficient. Multiple Storage options house Med Balls and Power Conditioning Ropes to allow it to be self-contained. A simple custom solution.
case western reserve university Dumbbell Storage
To maximize the productivity of their room Case Western wanted the ability to have their most commonly used dumbbells stored at each rack station. This allows their athletes to stay at their rack stations for the entire work out without having to walk across the room to retrieve dumbbells. It also saves space in their room by eliminating the need for stand alone dumbbell racks.
Columbus Academy Bumper Storage
Columbus Academy weight room is set up with Olympic lifting stations, each station has our standard 4 bay horizontal bumper storage. In order to keep each station self contained Columbus Academy wanted the ability to store change plates, collars, and a bar at each Olympic lifting station. We created a bolt on add on to our horizontal bumper storage that had 4 pegs for change plates, dedicated hooks for collars and a bar storage to meet their needs. We also added a landmine to the front of each bumper storage to give them the ability to use the platforms and the landmines at the same time.
Utica Wrestling Suspension System
Utica High School wrestling wanted to be able to do pull ups and monkey bars in their wrestling room without taking up any mat space. So we created this hanging monkey bar system that is suspended from the ceiling of the room. This allowed us to eliminate posts mounted to the ground and avoid this safety hazard for their wrestlers.
Sierra Rack Connectors
Sierra High School needed pull up bars to connect their racks but the manufacture of their racks did not offer any connectors. So we worked with them to design these custom Stray Dog Strength pull up connectors for their existing racks. There current racks also did not have the option for their school logo so we incorporated a logo atop of every rack connector.
