Custom solutions are our answers to solve our customers problems, that they could not solve with off the self equipment. 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 and is surrounded in 12" deep of sand for athlete safety.
Riverside Auxiliary Training Station
Riverside High School needed a way to maximize their space and get multiple uses our of their auxiliary machines. So we worked with them created this wall mounted auxiliary training unit to handle their auxiliary work while also giving the ability of 8 overflow lifting stations. This unit 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 are the ends that have 4 foot training cubes with arched connectors. This unit for Riverside led us to create our Auxiliary Training Racks or ATR.
Arcanum Training Fence
Arcanum High School sports performance center includes a turf area for warm ups, SAQ and functional movements. To maximize this space they needed away to store slam balls and conditioning ropes on the turf with out getting in the way. So we created this training fence for them it has storage for slam balls and conditioning ropes as well as multiple anchor points for conditioning ropes and bands.
case western reserve university Dumbbell Storage
To maximize the productivity of their room Case Western wanted the ability have 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 with out having to walk across the room to retrieve dumbbells. It also saves space in their room by eliminated 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 with out 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 not use posts mounted to the ground that would cause safety hazards 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.
