New Sports Performance Training Equipment Vastly Improves Agility, Cutting Speed, and Change of Direction

Source: BMT Fitness & Therapy Equipment

BMT Fitness & Therapy Equipment has recently launched its innovative 5200 Extreme Lateral Motion Trainer™ for the sports performance market. Athletes training on this equipment can:

  • Cut harder, faster, and sharper on the field

  • Train in all 3 planes of movement with more intensity 

  • Reduce the risk of injuries

  • Greatly enhance their performance

“Instead of putting the load on the joints, this new equipment puts it on the specific muscles used for making sharper, faster cuts” says Bob Piane Jr., CEO of BMT. “It’s based on our patented dynamic BMT Suspension System™ for a cut-training workout you can’t do on the field. You can have high-volume change-of-direction training with virtually no risk of injury. All coaches know that means more wins.”

The 5200 Extreme Lateral Motion Trainer™ is endorsed by top conditioning coaches, including Kevin Gendron, MS, CSCS, Better Athletic Development’s President, Director of Sports Conditioning and founder of Better Athletic Development in CT. He has trained/coached thousands of athletes for more than 23 years. He adds: “As strength and conditioning coaches we look to strengthen the muscles around the knees, especially the VMO, which is critical in making sharp and fast cuts on the field. That is exactly where you feel it working. This unit can help with knee and hip stability for lunging, cutting and driving off the ground. And the best news is it puts our athletes in a proper change of direction position to safely allow for high intensity cut-training workouts without the risk of repetitive stress injuries. This leads to greater performance in a way no other device or training method can offer.”

And, Vince McConnell of McConnell Athletics adds: “The new Extreme Lateral Motion Trainer™ from BMT has you covered in regards to sports requiring frontal and transverse plane performance.” 

Made in the U.S.A., the 5200 Extreme Lateral Motion Trainer™ is commercial grade, non-electric, and virtually maintenance free. It does not require external power; instead, it uses body weight and momentum to train in 360° of free-flowing motion. In addition, it has a small footprint and can fit just about anywhere in a facility.
