Combining Best Rack Features, Life Fitness Introduces
Hammer Strength Dual Rack
SCHILLER PARK, Ill., Aug 2, 2011 – Life Fitness introduces a new addition to its rugged Hammer Strength Heavy Duty line, the Hammer Strength Dual Rack, developed to further meet the needs of strength coaches and trainers. The Dual Rack combines the best features of the Hammer Strength Half-Rack and Multi-Rack, with the variety and performance that lets a team train to meet its individualized needs.
With a wider base, the Dual Rack provides a larger training area, giving taller athletes more room to perform. Added weight-horn storage helps keep plates off the floor and more organized, and new adjustable band pegs provide adaptability for over-speed training, variable resistance training and technique development. A range of optional accessories help to further customize this rack to meet a team’s needs.
“Racks continue to be a hot trend in the athletic and performance training categories today because they provide versatility in a relatively small-footprint with flexibility of training accessories,” said Chris Clawson, Life Fitness President. “Coaches want their rooms to be more functional and are looking to Hammer Strength to provide rack configurations, options and accessories that help them enhance the way they train their athletes.”
The Hammer Strength brand is renowned in the athletic industry and carries the weight and influence of notable figures in college and professional sports. The Hammer Strength Dual Rack was engineered through on-going collaboration and exploration of evolving training techniques. Each strength coach has a unique training routine. This rack lets the coach adjust attachments to add land mines, squat bars, chains and other accessories used in technique development.
