The gym is a modular functional training station that anchors resistance bands, large loop bands, suspension trainers, stretch straps and more. It's easy to use, delivers hundreds of exercises, and takes up zero floor space!
The Hammer Head Anchor Gym H2 Unit is made of steel and can support up to 300 lbs. of resistance. Each hook has a T-bar and curved shape for bands to be pulled from multiple angles safely. The two hooks extend 3 inches from the wall. Each unit is 11 ½” high and 2 ½” wide and includes mounting hardware.
The Hammer Head Anchor Gym is normally set up in three configurations.
The Basic Configuration consists of three H2 Units mounted at ankle height, chest height and at seven feet. This configuration delivers six key anchoring angles for hundreds of exercise options.
The PLUS Configuration adds a fourth H2 unit mounted at waist height. This is a great angle for exercises using stability balls or large loop bands.
Designed for professional gyms, the PRO Configuration has twelve hooking angles spread over six H2 units for maximum anchoring options. It makes a great personal training station or the ultimate home gym.

The new Brower Vertical Jump from Brower Timing Systems sets the bar high for vertical reach and vertical jump measurements. The system automatically measures reach and jump height and provides instant feedback as well as memory recall of average and best jumps. Touchless operation allows for easy self-testing with no use of an operator required. This system will not wear out with use.
How it Works
The Brower Vertical Jump measures vertical jump by automatically subtracting an athlete’s standing reach from each vertical jump. The sensor elements of the Brower Vertical Jump are vertically spaced at 0.2 inches (5 mm) and sense the vertical position of the person’s fingertip. The 48” sensor area allows for a wide height range of athletes without the need for adjusting the unit’s position. Average jump and highest jump can be recalled with the push of a button.
Portable and Easy to Set up
The Brower Vertical Jump system is just 9 lbs. and can be quickly mounted to walls, backboards, doors or weight lifting racks with the quick clamp mounting system. And, it’s battery operated – the 3 AA batteries will last for roughly 4,500 measurements or 80 hours of continuous use. When the system is idle for more than one minute it will go into battery save mode. The Brower Vertical Jump includes the 48” Brower Vertical Jump, (2) quick clamps, (2) screw clamps, and (1) reusable tube case.
The Brower Vertical Jump can display in inches or centimeters. The reach resolution is 0.2 inches (5.08 mm). The jump resolution is 0.1 inches (2.54 mm) due to a combination of sensor spacing and a hang time calculation. As a person jumps, each sensor element records how long it is activated. The system calculates if the person was in the air long enough to add 0.1 or 0.2 inches to the total height.
Accuracy of better than +/- 0.1 inches occurs in 87% of vertical jump results. Accuracy of better than +/- 0.05 inches occurs in 66% of vertical jump results. The maximum error for a vertical jump measurement result is +/- 0.15 inches.
Three Modes of Operation
Mode 1 – Differential Vertical Jump: This mode measures standing reach (reach height) and jump height. The vertical jump result is the difference between the two.
Mode 2 – Calibrated Reach: This mode is used to keep a jumper’s reach height consistent. A jumper’s standing reach can be measured and recorded once. All future testing can use the same reach height. Once the unit is calibrated to the ground, the athlete can reach to the previously recorded reach height by watching the display. The reach height is set when the unit beeps.
Mode 3 – Max Height: This mode displays the max height a jumper reaches from the floor. Reaching is not required.
Compare to the Vertec Jump Tester
The extremely popular Vertec has a telescoping upright and colored vanes spaced ½” apart that rotate when touched. When comparing the two, the Brower Vertical Jump:
has better accuracy (0.1 inches vs. 0.5 inches)
is touchless – no need to reset anything between jumps and will not wear out over time
is automatic – no need to manually subtract jump measurement and reach measurement
measures every jump (not just the highest) and provides average jump and best jump
has a large detection area (8 inches high by 4 inches wide), making it more likely to measure maximum height than mechanical devices like the Vertec
has a high throughput – it can measure 5 different athletes per minute

The Cube (also known as the Chameleon c360) is an entirely new way to teach and improve speed, agility, quickness, balance, coordination, lateral mobility, reaction time, strength and endurance. The Cube is designed for anyone who is serious about their sport. It works by conditioning the neuromuscular system to improve firing patterns of fast twitch fibers and establishing correct balance and recovery skills into muscle memory.
The Cube opens into a stable grid of nine boxes measuring 5’ by 5’. Each box in the grid measures about 20” square. It quickly folds into a small storage bag. Working the grid trains athletes to move quickly and efficiently in every direction, and it burns calories at a blazing 400-700 per half hour!
Balance, Speed, Agility and Reaction Time – Keys to Success
The Chameleon c360 is designed to transform your speed, agility, balance and coordination like nothing else and trains your body to react faster in all situations. Balance is the foundation of everything you do – being off-balance makes you slower and more apt to miss a play. Faster foot speed dominates your competitors. Better agility means moving easily and safely. The Cube teaches you better balance, speed and agility in all directions. It also improves your reaction time by quickly repeating multiple movements in many directions.
Besides training athletes, The Cube is also a great fitness trainer for the home or gym. Fun and challenging exercise routines can be developed for individuals or group fitness classes, providing exceptional cardiovascular benefits and calorie burning.
Invented by professional trainer Dave Jacob, The Cube was thoroughly tested at Sam Houston State University and is a trusted training tool of professionals and colleges like the University of Alabama, Ole Miss and Indiana University.
Purchase The Cube at PerformBetter.com. It includes a Functional Training Manual with 25 exercises. You may also be interested in browsing all of our Speed & Agility Products.
"As Director of the Human Performance Lab at Sam Houston State University, I have had the opportunity to research the Chameleon 360. Our research demonstrates that the C360 is an outstanding tool, which can be used to enhance speed and agility. The improvement that our research study demonstrates is very impressive. I have worked with athletes for almost 25 years and have used many tools for speed and agility training and I am convinced that the C360 is the best training tool available.”

Frequently seen on the sidelines at NFL football games, Schwinn’s latest upright fan exercise bike has been getting rave reviews. The Schwinn AD6 Airdyne Exercise Bike has a virtually indestructible frame, updated styling, and new features. Its durability makes it an awesome addition to both commercial facilities and home gyms.
Patented Air Resistance
The Schwinn® Fitness air resistance system creates as much resistance as you can handle. The harder you pedal, the greater the workout. The Airdyne® flywheel provides smooth resistance while cooling you during your workout.
Effective & Efficient
Through linked pedals and handlebars, the dual-action design synchronizes your arm and leg movements to simulate natural motion and works out your upper and lower body at the same time. By putting more effort into pedaling or the handlebars, you can also independently work out the upper and lower body.
Easily Monitored Workouts
The comprehensive computer console provides extensive feedback including calories burned, workload level, heart rate, RPM, Watts, distance and time. Also, the console continuously shows 6 workout metrics – no more waiting for readouts. The new RevMeter™ RPM gauge is fun, visual way to immediately gauge your efforts and is great for interval training.
The wide, extra-padded seat on the AD6 bike is comfortable for all body types and can be easily adjusted for height. When working out, cool air is directed toward your body. The AD6 Exercise Bike also includes a convenient, integrated water bottle holder and four levelers for stability.
With included transport wheels, a weight of just 115 lbs., the AD6 is light enough to easily move around your home or workout facility. And, with dimensions of just 50 x 26 x 51 inches, the Schwinn AD6 is compact enough to use in tight spaces.
