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..
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.
