Not just for the elderly or injured! Drag resistance equipment can challenge even the fittest of athletes and is a great way to encourage members into the pool who may have previously only trained on land! It is also a great option for members who may be recovering from injury and unable to train on land. Having one range of products that can be used for such a wide range of training goals and demographics allows facilities to offer multiple different classes or personal training options.
How does Drag Resistance Equipment Compare to Foam?
Drag resistance equipment creates a training effect that is unable to be achieved with buoyant equipment. It allows users to work a muscle group equally and smoothly in any direction and offers a level of resistance tailored to each individual.
Unlike foam equipment, drag resistance equipment is extremely durable and when cared for correctly, can last for years, saving facilities the need to continuously replace products. The ABS and Polycarbonate plastic used not only make the equipment nice and durable, but also makes it easy to clean and store.
