This weekend kicked off the first session of Hammer Strength’s annual coaches’ clinics in Noblesville, Ind. As a member of the Life Fitness biomechanical engineering team and an NASM certified Performance Enhancement Specialist, having the opportunity to come face to face with some of the most successful voices in the collegiate strength and conditioning world was worth the quick trip from Chicago.
The impressive Noblesville High School facility, complete with Hammer Strength power racks, rivals some of the pro team’s training centers. Inside, the room is packed with industry influencers and strength coaches from Midwest athletics programs, as well as fitness vendors, like Elite Form which showcased its new product Powertracker. This revolutionary device caught my eye for its biomechanics appeals; it can record an athlete’s power wirelessly, without cords, bars or machines to get in the way. The system uses technology similar to what you would find in an XBOX Kinect. Coaches have the ability to pull up videos of their athlete’s lifting and can run reports to track improvements. That means the tool lets strength coaches track the athlete’s exertion and effort without constantly standing over their shoulder. Having swam and coached football at Division-I Valparaiso University, I can tell you this is key.
