“With GymAware, athletes pay more attention and give more to every rep when they are being measured and competing with peers"

What was your experience switching and/or getting started with the GymAware PowerTool?

Ease of use was an important part in the decision making process. We are a small organisation and I wanted to get started right away.

GymAware offers more options than just the basic features of velocity and peak power measures of other units. I had used Tendo units in the UK at both Leicester Tigers and Cardiff Blues previously. The GymAware offers a greater range of services/support..

"I have personally gained great value in the use of velocity based prescription in my training programs and athlete preparation strategy"
Chris Toombs GymAware

What are your KEY aims of use with GymAware?

Tracking and instant feed back are the primary reasons that I use the product. The numbers really help to motivate and get the best out of athletes.

Its also a great education tool, because strength development is not always about moving heavy weights slowly! I can also use it to profile athletes which I find useful.
