The Run Rocket is the only training equipment that mimics the natural resistance an athlete feels when free-running, just amplified.
Perform Better are very proud to have been the sole UK distributor for the RunRocket brand since 2014. Through recommendations from clients, the brands were introduced in the US and realised the potential of the product in Elite Sport immediately.
It’s variable resistance, automatic rewind and extended leash length made this ideal for group sprint and power training. Since its introduction Perform Better have sold over 250 units in the UK alone, plus a whole host across key Football and Rugby clubs in Europe.
New developments planned for 2021 will keep the product at the forefront of performance training.
The Run Rocket is a portable resisted sprinting system which uses flywheels to create resistance for the athletes. With the ability to gear through 30 levels of resistance, the run rocket can be tailored to any athletes training requirements to get the best improvements in speed, power and agility. In addition to this, the run rocket can be used to resist during plyometric jumping and/or broad jumping.
The addition of wheels to the Run Rocket makes it a portable system allowing the system to be used during both indoor and outdoor training session. The system includes a disc loading bar to add mass to the frame ensuring stability and minimal movement during training with athletes of larger proportion. The resistance of the run rocket can be toggled using an adjustment knob, this resistance is represented numerically on the display for ease of repeatability.
“Run Rocket is a powerful innovation in sports training technology. It’s so effective, we use it at Michael Johnson Performance to train all our athletes, from youth to professional.”
“In my 15 years of working with thousands of athletes, I’ve never used a machine that allowed me to train the individual without altering the athletes form, until now with the Run Rocket. I would suggest it to anyone that is trying to improve speed and power yet still respects the importance of correct running form and mechanics.”
“The Run Rocket is the best piece of acceleration equipment in the market today.”
