Level Up Your
Be First To The Puck
With Flywheel Training
As the best teams and athletes around the world keep trying to gain and maintain an edge over their competition, ice hockey teams and professional athletes are acknowledging the benefits and advantages that flywheel training has over traditional weight training methods. Flywheel training with our Ice Hockey Systems offers full-body training ideally suited for the strength and endurance demands of ice hockey.

To Improve Your On-Ice Speed
Our kBox is the perfect training tool for players with limited access to an ice rink during pre-season or off-season. As an ice-hockey athlete, flywheel training allows you to:
- Transfer your skills from the gym to the rink: improve your speed on-ice by training on a kBox with hockey-specific movements
- 70+ Exercises: build strength from day one by incorporating heavy and explosive squats, lateral squats, and split squats with the kBox to improve your powerskating.
- Train with inertia and experience eccentric overload safely: the kBox is a safe, efficient, and scientifically-proven method to increase strength.

It All Started With Hockey
Back when flywheel training hadn’t been developed yet, coach Fredrik Correa would spend most of his time teaching young, talented hockey players lifting techniques rather than improving their physique and performance.
That is when he started developing a new type of training device:
Ice Hockey FAQ
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 hockey?
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 skating stride for a more specific training stimulus which will most likely help to increase the transfer of power and strength to perform on the ice hockey rink.
Is flywheel training safe for hockey athletes?
The kBox was originally developed as a safer training option for hockey youth training. With the kBox, you can put the load on your hips or let the harness unload you from the point pressure from the top down allowing the athlete to work harder and do basic heavy lifts like squat variations or lateral squats even with a cast on.
Can I track my progress as a hockey athlete/coach?
As an ice hockey 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 hockey players’ needs fulfilled regardless if your goal is to increase general or specific strength.
