Improve Sprint & Change of Direction Speed
As the best teams and athletes around the world keep trying to gain and maintain an edge over their competition, soccer (football) teams, and professional athletes are acknowledging the benefits and advantages that flywheel training has over traditional weight training methods. Flywheel training with our Soccer Systems offers full-body training ideally suited for the strength and endurance demands of soccer.

Optimize Strength & Speed For On-Pitch Performance
Our kBox is the perfect training tool for soccer (football) players during the pre-season or off-season. As a soccer (football) player of any level, flywheel training allows you to:
- Improve Your Sprint: increase your speed on the soccer (football) field by training on a kBox with sport-specific movements
- 70+ Exercises: build strength from day one by incorporating heavy and explosive squats, lateral squats, and split squats with the kBox.
- Train with inertia and experience eccentric overload safely: the kBox is a safe, efficient, and scientifically-proven method to increase strength.
With our kBox Soccer Systems, you can train your entire team with a few kBox devices. Space-efficient and easy to bring on the go, the kBox is the perfect tool to help you as a coach bring your team to their highest performance levels.
- Train with variable resistance: with the kBox, you get most of your football players’ needs fulfilled regardless if your goal is to increase general or specific strength.
- Power test your team: our step-by-step protocol on how to power test your football players is available at our Academy.
What's it like to train with the kBox?
Djurgardens IF (DIF) in the Swedish Premier League, Allsvenskan, is using the kBox with SmartCoach to develop strength and speed in their players. Here is an interview with Jordi Gonzalez, A-team physical coach, and Victor Stoltz, U17/19 physical coach, about their training. There is also some footage from their actual on-field exercises where they combine high-intensity resistance training with sports-specific sprints.
Why is flywheel training considered superior compared to traditional training methods?
Traditional strength training with free weights or weight stack means muscle work against a constant external load. The load in the concentric phase of the movement with traditional strength training needs to be adapted to the angle of the range of motion where the external lever is at the longest. As the length of the external lever varies with the joint angle and the muscle´s ability to develop force is affected by muscle length, the internal lever causes an incomplete activation of muscle motor units throughout the range of motion.

What is variable resistance in flywheel training for soccer?
With the variable resistance, it enables maximum load throughout the full range of motion in the concentric phase of the movement at each repetition in a set regardless of the internal and external lever and provides a higher activation of motor units. Also, the possibility to add load and move in all three dimensions mimics the soccer sprint for a more specific training stimulus which will most likely help to increase the transfer of power and strength to perform on the soccer field.
Can I track my progress as a soccer athlete/coach?
As a soccer coach, you can use the kMeter to limit the intensity, motivate for higher intensity, or follow up in testing for evaluation. With the kBox and the kPulley, you get most of the soccer players’ needs fulfilled regardless if your goal is to increase general or specific strength.
