The Crawler
 
Crawling is a fundamental movement that helps to develop the POWER CENTER when you were a baby. All of that crawling is the training which allows you to eventually appropriately stabilize yourself during upright dynamic movements such as walking, running and jumping. Until now, physical therapists and trainers have been unable to effectively train the power center in a low impact, high potency fashion.
 
Most people stop crawling because it is difficult and hard on the knees and wrists. The Crawler virtually eliminates the impact on the low back, knees and wrists to allow all of the benefits of crawling without the damaging stress to the body. The Crawler effectively targets the POWER CENTER while providing functional movement training as well as upper and lower body strength and cardiovascular endurance. The crawler provides non-traumatic, low impact, uniform, balanced loading of the power center. Crawling in a low impact fashion is able to quickly enhance the POWER CETNER’s activation during cross body movement patterns such as is found in more dynamic movements such as running.
 
The Strider
 
The Strider is the most important part of walking and running. Your stride is probably the most impacted movement characteristics following and injury or pain of the body. Having a good stride will ultimately improve your speed, but also decreases the shock and excessive forces that can traumatize the body from high impact forces during running. The Strider is a slightly more aggressive machine in which the cross body stimulation to the POWER CENTER is performed in the upright position, loading the POWER CENTER through the knee, ankle and foot for the first time. This increases the control and muscle strength balance of the lower extremities throughout the available Range on Motion. The Strider yields a uniform and balanced load to the POWER CENTER without overloading the weak points of the body.
 
 
 
 
The Plyometric Jumper
 
 
 
This machine allows you to experience low load high speed single limb jumping with tremendous control and stability to significantly reduce the risk of trauma to the body. This machine provides a way to get maximum stimulation to the foot and ankle while sending forces directly to the POWER CENTER. Many people are too weak in their POWER CENTER or in their foot and ankle to perform jumping exercises correctly and without risking over traumatizing the body. The Plyometric Jumper uses elastic resistance as opposed to weights which allows for more rapid improvements with higher loads and less trauma to the body. You get the best of both worlds. Improved function without the trauma to the body.
 
The Wobbler
 
When babies develop they must stabilize their head during up right movement. This causes a wobbling effect which slowly disappears as stability improves. This also causes a great amount of weight shifting from each lower extremity during standing, walking and running. The Wobbler is a simple tool which can provided both reactive and proactive balance. Equipment that provides both proactive balance and stability training are rare and often dangerous. The INDO board and skate boards would be examples of proactive balance.
This piece of equipment also allows a person to appropriately train the cross body rotational patterns through the power center used in movements such as walking, running, punching, kicking, jumping and throwing. Some people refer to this as the spinal engine.
 
 
 
 
The Unifier/The Ab Press
 
 
 
 
All of the equipment used in Sports Muscle Conditioning is designed to maximize the stimulation to the POWER CENTER without excessive force to the spine or joints of the extremities. However, this unique piece of equipment sends all forces directly to the POWER CENTER for maximum stimulation in a purely isometric fashion. Similar to the Old School exercise, 6 inches, the AB Press allows for more uniform strength. Exercises like 6 inches however direct forces to the weak area of the body and overloads the lumbar spine. The AB Press creates unity between the upper and lower body teaching you how to become like “One” total body muscle.
 
 
The Rollerback
 
This machine can be used in many ways. The RollerBack provides stimulation to the spinal erector muscles while the body is placed in a gravity minimized position to unload the joints. This allows for effective stimulation of the POWER Center without trauma to the joints. This machine allows you to take your body through full ranges of motion to stretch your hips and spine in a comfortable fashion. The rollers helped to loosen up your muscles and also provide a smooth rolling motion during movements of the legs and arms.
 
 
 
The Necker
 
 
 
 
A piece of equipment designed to allows for reproduction of the movement patterns which occur during infant development. The Necker does provide strength to the muscle of the neck and trunk but provides a much more important feature. When someone loses their balance, the first thing that usually moves is their head. Better athletes have better control of their head and posture during movements which correctly aligns the body for more powerful and efficient movements. The neck is a tool that teaches people to appropriately stabilize their body and to remember how to correctly use their power center for postural control during movement
