Equipment

  • Dynamax Medicine Balls
    Ultra high quality same-size medicine balls constructed of recycled materials, entirely in the USA! These were the first balls on the market with enough padding to be used safely at high velocities. The success of the Dynamax medicine balls is largely responsible for the current widespread use among athletic programs and fitness facilities. They have spawned many competitors. As a result many implements labeled "medicine ball" are available, but not all balls are created equally. To avoid the pitfalls of selection, one should ask this primary question: Can I catch this ball when thrown at its highest velocity? If the answer is yes, you have a training tool for life. If not, you need to consider Dynamax.
