Plate Loaded Equipment Delivers on a Budget

Plate Loaded Equipment Delivers on a Budget

 
Sport Specific Answers on Budget

Selectorized equipment is certainly a time-saver. To change resistance the user only has to move a pin attached to the weight stack, and the machines tend to take up less space than plate-loaded equipment, especially when weight holders are required. But in terms of performance, there is no difference between selectorized machines and plate-loaded variations. There is, however, one major advantage of plate-loaded equipment: cost.

Adding a weight stack to an exercise machine significantly increases the cost of the unit. Also, due to the weight of the machines, shipping and handling costs are also higher. Whereas a plate-loaded machine may cost $800 plus $200 to ship, it’s possible that the exact same machine in a selectorized version may cost $1,600 plus $400 to ship – seriously, almost double. In today’s economy, that is an important distinction.

BFS Leadership Program Exposes Young Leaders to Top Coaches  in Athletics and Sports Science

BFS Leadership Program Exposes Young Leaders to Top Coaches in Athletics and Sports Science

BFS is proud to work with great young leaders from Maryland and Utah

In the first week of November BFS hosted our Leadership Program which exposes top students and athletes to real world applications of leadership. Coach Kyle Fiat and Athletic Director Rich Reed from Dulaney High School in Maryland, accompanied four leaders from the Lion's Lacrosse program to Salt Lake City to learn from top coaches and researchers in the world athletics.
During this amazing visit the young men were treated to a visit with the Utah Jazz Director of Sports Science Mark McKown. McKown is a 19 year veteran of the Jazz where he is continually learning new ways to bring his athletes and organization to their full potential. McKown's implementation of applied sports science makes the Jazz one of the NBA's most progressive franchises.
Learning from leaders at the highest level of their fields made this weekend a program that will have a lasting impact on these growing leaders.

BFS is working hard to bring new and exciting services and trainings to all our valued schools and customers. Stay tuned to this newsletter and www.biggerfasterstronger.com to learn more about all new Speed and Agility Camps coming in 2017.
